Bassdrum Fl Studio

  • Copy it to your sample library in FL Studio. Drag and drop the Sample directly into the FLS Step Sequencer. We will be usings FL’s standard Slicer as opposed to Slicer X, which is tailored for triggering samples on the fly using its integrated filters. FL Studio will conveniently load up the loop, pre-sliced and ready to roll.

  • Oscillator 1: select saw as the oscillator shape and set the fine tune to -10 cents
  • Oscillator 2: select saw as the oscillator shape as well and set the fine tun to +20 cents.
  • Oscillator 3: we are not going to use osc 3, so set it’s volume to 0 %.
  • Root key to C7

As this is going to be a reese bass aimed for drum & bass, set the project tempo to 170 BPM.

Fruity Fast Dist. It’s a distortion effect to add some ‘dirt’ and ‘attitude’ to the sound. Use these settings:

Fruity Love Philter. For filter modulation. Load a preset ‘Default’ first to reset it’s setting and then use the following settings:

And here’s the envelope settings. This is just what I’m using. You can draw what kind of envelope you want:
