Next to the beat, the bass is the most important foundational timbre in dance music. It can be deep and round and smooth. Or it can be malicious, edgy and filled with an abundance of high frequencies and internal rhythms.

There's really no right or wrong bass timbres. But there are definitely serious-sounding basses and other less serious ones that are wimpy, weak and anemic.
This in-depth course teaches you the art and theory behind the making of those super-powerful, killer bass sounds!

This course teaches the fundamentals of oscillation and pitch. You see how modulation is applied to the VCA and filter to generate movement and envelope. There’s also sections on synthesis, bass-appropriate FX and bass design theory! The course concludes with a collection of examples that explains and explores some serious dance music bass styles!

So take a class with our exclusive dance music expert, Multiplier (Adam Pollard), and learn the ins-and-outs of designing bass sounds that’ll give your tracks bottom, propel your music forward and energize the dance floor!
