The Original Growl Bass Thread (Official)


Hello everyone :)It’s been a while here huh :stuck_out_tongue: Yesterday I came across the new song from Panda Eyes - Isolated and I was wondering how does he make the growl at 00:19

Does anyone has a clue about it? It’s not hard for me to make growls BUT this one, even tho it’s pretty common, has that particular timbre that I struggle to achieve.


Alright bro to make a growl like this

  1. make a gutteral starting sound, either wavetables or fm synthesis works
    look for waves that look almost pw modulated or something
  2. macro ur modulations to the wavetable or fm knobs
  3. macro a medium resonance hp filter from around 50 hz to 700-900 hz for main formant sound
  4. macro a bunch of random notches sweeping around the spectrum, pick where they should go by ear
  5. now the main part of this growl is a shit ton of stationary phasers and maybe a cabinet simulator turned down a bit and probably 100 otts
  6. reverb?? and more compression/distortion (preferably before the reverb but who cares move the genre forward)


Thanks, i’ll try.


Not a growl but I can’t post new topics so here u go <3
