Acoustic and electric basses, as well as synth basses, are a challenge to mix, because they have to stand up against drums and other instruments and provide a gripping groove. Fundamental Bass by W.A. Production helps to give your lowend a tighter and punchier sound in just a few steps. This combines multiband compression and stereo imaging, as well as tube saturation and distortion, in one intuitive interface.
Also on board: SynthMaster 2 BE power-horse
At first glance, KV331’s SynthMaster BE is an excellent sounding synth of a subtractive nature. Its real strength, however, lies in the flexible oscillators with countless waveforms, which are “alienated“ by two FM-modulators. High-quality effects and an inspiring arpeggiator may not be missing either. This makes fat unison sounds just as possible as brilliant or creaky digital sounds and complex soundscapes.
Trap Orchestra: 2 GB Symphonic Instruments for EDM
Abyssal basses, shrill bells and roaring trumpets… when it comes to instrumentation, Trap isn’t squeamish and, in addition to synthetic alarm sounds and sirens, is also extremely fond of classical orchestras. So it’s already clear where the journey of the expansion is heading. Look forward to a whopping 116 strings, cellos, double basses, marimbas, xylos and, of course, nasty 808 subs, for EDM, Trap, Grime and all styles that need massive symphonic sounds.
