Forum Information

Dear users, I have decided to phase out the posting on the forums on this website and move any discussions over to this private facebook group. While the forums were great 10 years ago, they are now difficult to maintain due to constant spam. I spend most of my time just cleaning them up, rather than interacting. This, combined with finding it difficult to directly communicate with other users through several different social media platforms, I have decided to consolodate it all to one group where people can chat with me, ask questions and jibber jabber with other users on a regular basis. I will not make the forums offline as there is a wealth of content, but posting has now been disabled. Thanks to all those who have contributed over the years, and I'll see you over on the Facebook group! -Tom

Hey brotha man, so I'm pretty sure the squelchy zipperness you're referring to is actually not a bass (although with some smart synthesizing, i.e. lowering the octave and layering a sub underneath, it could easily be bass material!) but a saw or square wave with a pitch envelope and automated attack/decay/sustain/ and release. Add some cool fx like saturation, reverb, time delay, and arpeggiation and you've got yourself some juicy zipps! I just recently learned how to make this sound from a mad zach youtube tutorial. Search youtube for mad zach laz(s?)ers and there's a great ableton tutorial! Peace and happy sound designing!
