    FAT BEATS & BASS
    Hi guys, I'm slowly getting my head around Logic 8. I'm finding the actual song construction side of things pretty straight forward, its making/altering instrument sounds that I need more experience with. mmmmoooving right along... there are so many helpful people in this forum I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask a couple more questions. First off, I'm really struggling with the logic drum kits and with ultrabeat.. I want a really fat bass beat with slow release but can't really put anything together that I like. A lot of the logic kits have really punchy sounds, I want something that you'll feel through your whole body, something really deep.. I'm talking electro/dance music here. Any advice? Secondly, remember that N-trance cover "do you think I'm sexy" ... Any advice on how to make a bass pattern like that? Quite a few songs have that pattern, its a pretty disco kinda of bass. Hopefully somebody can help... :) Thanks heaps, steve.

    Hi Steve, I have had the same questions myself, I don't have all the answers, and would also like to know that bass pattern. Anyway Ultabeat looks harder than it is, I can't recommend enough the Logic 204 video. (and no I don't work for MPV). Logic allows you to easly tune a sound. This is handy if a sound (kick for example) doesn't sound right. I find tuning for a G fits a lot of tracks. Battery 3 is a nice easy to use drum program with a great sound, but it lacks the matrix that UB has. Also I would recommend reading their Customer support forum before buying anything. Stylus RMX, I didn't like this program at first, but I must say it is growing on me, and it has some awesome kick and snare sounds. Yes you can feel an RMX kick. EQ can make a huge difference to the sound, giving each sound its on frequency band, stops one sound swamping an other. Cheers Darren.

    I forgot to mention compression. My favorite compressor is PSP MixPressor2 from PSP Audioware. PSP MixBass2 is also a nice bit of software for fattening up Drum and Bass. Camel Phat is also good for this. Hope this Helps. Darren.

    Hi Steve, Have you tried Logics' " Sub Bass " Plug In.. It lives in the Channel Strip settings under 'Specalised'... Also on the output channel under Settings.. Mastering.. there's a couple of nice combinations called ' Enhance Deepness' and 'Enhance Low End'... Give them a whirl... and see what happens... Cheers, Bj
