I know I could use samples and forget about this, but just trying to learn a bit.
I am trying to get more into synthesis using renoise only and in particular looking at bass at the moment. I wanted to try to create something that approximated a bass guitar. I came across this tutorial for massive which is exactly the sort of tone I’m looking for.
I realise that renosie does not have a wavetable synth but with the brilliant custom synth and selection shaper tools I feel it might be possible to approximate the ‘bender’ waveform that is used in the massive patch. This gif shows that the bender waveform dials from a pure sine through to a spike with a low duty cycle. The patch modulates the wavetable to deform the sine wave with an envelope. I sampled the patch waveform from the tutorial and can see the underlying form is a sine wave skewed with a 30% duty cycle and another waveform in the 70% half of the wave. I sampled the bass in the intro to Dazed and confused and the approximate repeating waveform is quite similar to that in the massive patch.
Can anyone see how I could recreate or approximate this patch in renoise using more primitive sampled waves + modulation/filter?
