Learn To Create Your Own Trance Basses

Welcome to the first Sylenth1 Sound Design Tutorial.

In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to create your own trance bass sounds from scratch. I’ll be going over in a great amount of detail the different types of Trance basses such as Mid Basses, Sub Basses, Distorted Basses, Top Basses & More.

If you have ever felt like you want to stop using presets because you want full control of the outcome, then this tutorial will equip you with the tools to produce some solid bass lines for your tracks.

I’ll be taking you through the step by step methods that I use to create Trance Bass sounds. Explaining to you in-depth what each parameter such as the ADSR, Filters, Oscillators, Mod Envelopes, LFO’s, MISC & Effects are doing, so that you understand how the sound is being built, but more importantly why I’m doing what I am doing.

Quit tweaking your bass and not knowing what it’s doing! Learn where to tweak for the right results!
