Creating a Sub Bassline & Using Dump Score Log

I'll show you one more thing about this baseline um as you may have noticed that I mean it does sound very guitar like because running through guitar amps and you know it sounds really kind of squashed and flat and it sounds like it's and it's coming out of a box which was the intended sound but there's no base in it so what I ended up doing is um so I'm just gonna believe this and show you right from scratch so we've got our base sounds right we've created our bass lines doing something like that so what I did is I created a whole new inside the base synth um pattern I added a an instance of massive something going add an instance of nasa it's basically doing exactly the same thing as as the baseline massive is eyes is a pretty big synthesizer it's by the clock massive it's got three oscillators you've got additional modulation um too I mean I'm not without going into complete detail I'm not on expert total expert at it but you got three oscillators you gotta noise generator modulatio...

ns oscillator um you can add feedback so basically it takes the audio runs it back and do itself and then pipes it on it again and so you can create some sort of like a thicker, more kind of saturated sort of sound yet to different filters on amplifier you've got two different effects processors right here and you can select him by the each tub there's an output cue here um you have then you have some these insert effects that would be like you know delays and big crushers or whatever you get two of those here um but when I use any of it we're going to use one oscillator right here this only one I'm going to turn everything I wanna fix up for this so if I click on the blue dot here it turns off the oscillator use this single loss later and in this drop down you have all the different types of oscillators that you can choose inside inside massive um I'm gonna go real basic I'm gonna choose sign square right and basically signed square oscillator if you turn this deputy position the oscillator position to the left straight up sine wave turning the right square on dh it sort of morphs the wave somewhere in the middle right we're gonna go straight up for a sign right and that's it I'm gonna just simple sign wave I'm gonna take all of my information here by control a control c to copy it on dh I'm gonna go into the piano rolling this massive and paste it right there and then I could either change the pitch down here in october so that's I'm getting sub son was going minus twelve so now on an earlier it play these together and now this base has beef to it has some sub layers over so I've done that with this part I'm also going to do it um on the other derivative version of that bass line right here so double click on it now I'm inside here copy everything and then paste it into this massive and so now it's ah just a little bit more of a rich sound and I could even get more tone out of it if I were tio say you know uh we should get all the way down there there is like ah liken you saturate err on this if you don't um um the popping that might sound a little bit um it was distracting whatever. I kind of like it but um in massive you've got four different envelopes um andi I believe is the as the first solo that's all is this one? Yeah it's actually a template for handles the volumes just the volume a little bit find a nice little balance between the two and the basis this way the sub base stays constant no matter what I d'oh to make this sound harsh and disorder. So the next the next thing I want to show you that there's like the solo thing and I was just talking about the with the flute sounds whatever s o here's what I'm going to dio I'm going to add an instance of contact um and from the contact library I'm going to dig in to some of these theirs just so many sounds and the contact labor and they also in very realistic and and awesome in the world library there's some flute sounds that I was toying around with I think it was this this curve all its I couldn't tell you where carlos our phone but it double click on it to bring it into uh into the rack and I've got and I'll just like kind of a mute this thing for the time being on dh just kind of try to figure out something that I could dio just to have just hearing there not all the way through the song just so I'm not even gonna record I'm just gonna play this loop cool that was neat but I didn't record it and that it's too bad because I didn't record it right? Well, so awesome thing about f l studios that it's actually always recording so if you did something and you something about hitting record that just messes things up and some like I don't know if that happens with yeah, I like you you're like I'm totally into this thing I just did okay, I'm not recording when do it again and there's impossible like you just can't do it right? So but the beauty of f l studio one of the awesome features is uh you can you can retrieve anything that you did that you performed and so what I'm going to do is create a new pattern I'm going to call it my call ball well I'm gonna call it flute keep it and keep it simple and um they're going to um tools um and she is dump score to selected pattern now everything that I did even with the massive is all on has all been recorded and it dumps it all there so I didn't want to keep what I did with the mouse of I just believe that but I do want to keep everything that I did with the contact and drop it in here on everything that I did is totally brought back it doesn't necessarily place is exactly where you had so you might need to use this slip tool and slide it back into place but it's there just maybe starts right? Yeah well anyways with uh with some toying around you can get it totally retrieve exactly what you did before so um what I ended up getting a mme when I worked on it all open that up so you can see uh don't score log so as you can see I had been twenty around with it for three minutes of twenty around and then ultimately at the very end I just basically, um use little bits to punctuate different things that were happening in the vocals

Class Description

The remix is a dancefloor staple; the anticipation is almost palpable when you hear your favorite non-dance track inch its way into a mix. Learn how to make that magic happen from soundscape artist and DJ, Dave Pezzner.

Pezzner will teach you how take something that isn't a dance track and turn it into one. In Making Remixes in FL Studio, you’ll learn how to isolate, chop up, and recombine elements from final mixes – no stems needed.

Using FL Studio as the "shell" DAW you’ll learn how to work with:

  • Native Instruments BATTERY and Kontakt for samples and drums
  • Mixed In Key for analyzing the source material
  • Native Instruments MASSIVE for basslines and leads

Pezzner will teach you how to figure out which key a song is in and show you how to come up with melodies and harmonies that are sonically consistent with the source material. You’ll also learn how to change the vibe of source material and come up with new drum and basslines that integrate seamlessly.
