Good Syth for Bass - what you use?

hi to all! I would like to ask you wich synth you use for basslines/basssounds. I am working on some tracks and use Model 15, Sunrizer, D1 and Troublemaker for bass. Maybe there are some more good / special syths for nice bass out there I don’t know?

  • I like iMono/Poly - and Thor. Zeeon is pretty good

  • I like ODYSSEi

  • imini, zeeon, model d, cyclop

  • Depends on what kind of genre you're looking to produce mate. :) If I know this, I can better advise you.

    genre is like...hmmm...difficult to say...some kind of berlin school sequenzing with ambient influences....I also like the typically 303 modulations/grooves...

    I like very much the classical synth bass sounds of the late 70s and 80s/90s

    in this case try iSEM ;)

    Don't forget the easier to program Moog Model D (Minimoog). Like the Model 15, it's a stunning recreation. Truth is though, for Berlin school stuff you already have precisely what you need with Model 15. Only other synth I'd recommend is Zeeon since you have Sunrizer and it's made by the same guy.

  • Could also add Viking, another moogy monosynth.
    I think it's probably still on sale too.

    You can use anything - the sound generator doesn't matter that much ;)
    (even the very low registers of sounds that were never intended to be 'bass' may work)
    That 'bass expression' slips in by sequence (micro) timing and sound modulation - mostly delay and some filter setups.

    Ah, so 70s-80s Jean-Michel Jarre and Vangelis basically. (Who here hasn't listened to JMJ's Equinox album at least 100 times front to back?)

    -Model 15 (the king of semi-modulars on iOS)
    -Nanostudio 2's Obsidian (a little less meaty and more neutral than Moog, but definitely great for contrasting timbres)
    -Minimoog Model D (quickly dialing in the Moog magic)
    -Animoog (expressive live playing and yes, purchase all of its IAPs as they contain MOAR timbres, and who doesn't like MOAR? :lol: )
    -iMono/Poly (but only for Gadgeteers as it wouldn't make sense to purchase otherwise as it isn't AU)
    -ReAmp and DAW Cassette (effects for your analogue reel-to-reel emulation needs)

    Bassalicious and Outta Bass are excellent synths. As everyone knows, the best bass synths have to have bass in their name., no question about it ;) (jk)

    Seriously though, other suggestions here are probably more value (Zeeon and such) for their larger sound pallet and more capable synths..I do love the two I mentioned though — Bassalicious is a bit more straightforward and simple design, and also AU, while I somewhat prefer the sounds I’ve gotten out of Outta Bass — it might be a bit of an awkard looking interface at first, but it’s quite powerful and easy to use, with more modulation possibilities than the former.

    Excellent deal... I hope they port Viking 2 to iOS ..love that one on Reason. Also the 5 AU effects bundle for 2.99 is currently a steal — I put it off for years until just last week, thinking it’d just be too much overlap with all the dozens of other AU effects I have ..quite a pleasant surprise — lightweight, easy to use and top notch sound. Love throwing some DC-9 Overdrive on viking, and perhaps a touch of resampler if I want to get real dirty.

    iSEM and Thor are my favorites closely followed by Model D and iMono/Poly. Really depends on the situation!

  • Model D = bass
    /end B) :D

    But sometimes it's too much and doesn't fit the track. Zeeon is good, but more similar to Model D. iMono/Poly is good, too. I think I'm sensing a pattern here. Heh.

  • I use iM1 (well, the gadget one of those) on a large amount of my tracks, just supplying a bass guitar sound that underpins whatever else nonsense batshit bass antics I have going on as well.

  • This thread is a bit like saying to a bunch of people "what color blue do you like?"

    So, yeah. The blues I like: Model D, Bassalicious, Zeeon.

  • I can't stand, sorry :trollface:

    Answering the OP I will say Bassalicious, iMini and iPolysix... but you know I'm in the dark side...

    I'm gonna admit I'm not a very big fan of JMJ, especially in comparison to his Berlin school peers of the time. All the pieces are there, but it ends up sounding generic and emotionless.

    I'll see myself out.

    Basically.
    IMHO, almost any synth can produce a reasonably great bass patch once you spend some time with it. Even if you need to add a little duplicating and FX processing.
    I have Model 15, Model D, Zeeon, DRC, iMonopoly, iSEM, Audulus, and Toublemaker, and they all create some good bass sounds to varying flavours.

    thx a lot to all!

    hmmm a lot of you using zeeon. i own this synth too but i never use it because if i open only one AU in Aum the DSP goes to 30% 😳😱
