    How would you go about creating these basslines?


    Hello everyone,
    This is my first post here. I thought this would be the best place to ask as there are thousands of different sound samples created by various users. I hope someone can help me to reproduce these types of bass lines:

    They sound so simple, but i cant get it right.
    is there a special technique that i'm missing?

    I'm using fl studio 12 and yes, i'm new at this.

    Thanks!

    its quite easy to do, make a simple sinewave or find an 808 without a kick or take it out yourself, then in the piano roll just slide up the notes with the sliding tool

    also make sure the release is instant, so that when the note ends so does the sound

    The way the bass "blooms up" is going to be a function of the amp envelope on the synth or, very typically in electronic music, sidechain compression where the kick triggers the compressor on the bass causing it to pump and breathe like that. Getting the release time right and tied to the rhythm gives it a musical effect, as heard. You'll have to read up on that or watch some tutorials.
