I am also curious about this. I checked out a vst called "junglist" but it had no good basslines, and sounded really cheap.

I think synapse audio used to make a pretty cool vst called "Junglist"

However it's now called Hydra

QTF?? I loved Junglist!

I enjoy cheap sounding VGM-like stuff, but the junglist was/is crap sounding (which, to me, is it's charm).

I'm looking for a vst that can reproduce the "jump up jungle" rolling bassline. It's probably the only thing i still have no clue how to imitate (this does not mean that i can reproduce all other sounds electronically, just that i have some inkling to how i should go about creating them). I have tried with the minimogue, but failed every time.

any subtractive synth VST should be able to do this.

 

take one square wave, one pulse wave, detune slightly. run to resonant 12db lowpass filter (you want 12db because the more gentle rolloff curve is much more suited for basses). A slight bit of env mod on the filter cutoff is acceptable, but don't go crazy with it, you're not trying to make a 303 here. A really low cutoff with a relatively high resonance will give you alot of crazy harmonics spun off into neverneverland, which once you hit on a nice sweet spot with give the impression of deeper bass.

 

have fun!

Also, if you're into like dancehall/raggae jungle type of stuff, just buy a Casio MT-40, the "bosa nova" baseline that comes pre-programmed is the famous "Sleng Teng" riddim. It also has some little push button "baseline" keys to the left and I beleive the oscillator for it is analogue, Im not 100% on that though. You can get them on ebay for like $10

I didn't seem to have a 12db lowpass filter, but i found nice one here, though i can't get it to do exactly what i want.

Try this. I find it has a lot of beef to it. Good for dubstep too.

or just sine waves? layering sine waves?

 

My theory is that cranking the resonance is what helps to give this. Actually, the sine waves tha tget kicked off from filter oscillation are pure, unlike the ones that come off of an oscilator (which is just shaping clock pulses and not actually producing a sine wave). You can check it out on an oscilliscope of freq analyzer, the sines you get from a resonant filter in oscillation have 0 harmonics past the fundamental, not true of something you take off of an osc.

Thanks Promo!

 

And the problem wasn't finding but working.

That is fucking the best thing I think I've ever read on WATMM. It's not like it's a hard riddim to re-create, but damn that's funny as hell.

actually another thing you might want to try (in the deep sinish bass line department) is an FM Synth because alot of people used (from what i've read) is that alot of those basslines were from the TX81z or TX802. so depending on how much you;d want to spend i would look at FM8 or one of the cheaper FM soft synths.

yeah but also, keep it as clean as possible. a simple clean sine wave (with minor alterations, but no STACKING, remember youre working with a waveform not some kind of multilayered sound environment)may work great

Albino vst is ok as well

I've read these types of threads all the time. If you are referring to stuff like Noisia and Pendulum you really gotta start resampling.

 

Its a relatively simple concept that for some reason people lack the patience for and keep flipping thru presets expecting to find some holy grail preset.

 

The concept is that you make a big hoover, then run it thru some stuff. Split the bands, apply different effects to each band. On the high bands try using stuff like phaser, flange, reverb, waveshaping. Midrange needs the crunchy stuff like chorus, distortion, filter modulation. The bass really only needs some compression, you don't want to distort the sub bass or chorus it etc. Get the idea? Decorate the various areas of the sound, then redecorate.

translation: i downloaded the junglist and the presets where cheesy, i could have actually tweaked some knobs and found that it was an awesome synth but sound designing os for big shot producers like aphex twin and boc
