Bassmore 808 Bass

Special Instructions

Unzip and open the project folder. Then open the included .ALS file.

Inside the project, you will see a MIDI track with the Instrument Rack preset. Click the floppy disk icon on the corner of the rack to save it as a preset in your User Library.

You can use the Macro controls to control a few envelope values from Operator, some chorus parameters, and the on/off and output levels for saturator. Enjoy!

I've been listening to a lot of Julio Bashmore's music lately. I'm really intrigued by the clean, round 808-style sub bass sounds he uses in several of his tracks, so I sought out to emulate it using only Ableton Live devices.

Here's an example of the sound in "Battle for Middle You." The sub bass kicks in around 1:01.

Adjusting the settings on the Saturator can REALLY change up the sound. Feel free to change distortion types, increase or decrease the drive, or even add your own distortion plugins after the rack to suit it to your style! This can morph it into more of a hardstyle kick, trap 808, etc. This is definitely a nice utility sub instrument, so have at it!
