Can anyone give me some pointers on achieving that Skream style bass sound.

i heard skream uses reason, so get your subtractor sounds on the go!

Skream - Oskilatah, that is a TUNE. Very Fine synth bass. If I was to pick a synthe to make that sound I would use albino 3.

That may very well be, but I doubt that's the only way he works. I've spoken with a lot of people who go around in the UK garage scene, who have spoken with Skream several times at his shows, and they told me that he won't tell other people what VSTs he uses. They may have been pulling my leg, what do I know.

lol back @ you sir.


oops, "lol" wasnt meant negative at all. just wanted to say that it doesnt matter what specific gear you use, it can even be a simple preset.
i know, its bad phrased. i thought skream sounds like rusko, - like benga, - like [name], (bass- wise). and there are videos from fm/cm.
you know, i was guessing. so theres the reason to lol at me. :P

Ahh, fine 'nuff man.. I always thought that Skream had a very different way of using his synths compared to the likes of Rusko and such, who I think have a more round and soft sound.

Not that Skream can't be using a simple preset, but I don't think any of us will be able to pinpoint excactly what synths he's using generally - I mean, hypothetically, he could be making his sounds in Renoise and rewire it, ya' get me?


But for now, lets smoke a peace pipe.

Tested them out, the Big bass line one does have a lot of noise, and all are very cpu heavy. I do appreciate your work though, will continue to test them out

did a small test too, and i´ve got noise after using the phaser level.
it had a value of 100 and i set it down to 50 or something and back to 100 again then i`ve got a lot of noise/crackle.
so i`m not talking about white noise or something.
looks like the phaser has some probs.

i´m talking about reese bassline big :)

Well guys, now that I've done much fiddling around, and taken the advice of many of you, I can say that I've definately got some really nice wobble basses running. I've found now that it is easier to sample down a bass at a root C and then simply pitch the sample up and down. Also, I found that applying forms of distortion and whatnot to the bass sounds give them more umph to play with while modulating the filters. Also, as many of you have said, it's quite easy to make with just freeware vsts. Thanks.

I just came across this 13 part series on making dub step bass patches using NI's Massive:

iirc - that tutorial, while quite informative about massive, doesn't really give you a good sounding bass because i think it skips from a not-so-nice sounding bass that he's making in massive - to a nice sounding bass later on in one of the steps without explaining anything..
i could be wrong, but i think it's that tutorial.

renoise lets you make nice sounding basses too without a lot of effort! and i think there are benefits to doing it directly in renoise, like they're more manipulable and stuff.
here's a quick loop of some really simple stuff (with some not so nice drums) as an example:
