THE TYRELL


FUNK BASS


The Tal-Uno 62 is a really cool and simple to use replica of the Roland Juno 62. It is a perfectly good starting point for anyone wanting to learn about Synthesis and how to navigate around the basics of a synthesizer where you can get the hang of ADSR & LFO etc without being too overwhelmed. The Funk bass pre-set is a cool little sound that can give you a tough bass sound that is straight out of the box.


TAL-UNO 62





THE LATELY / SOLID BASS


Now if you have heard any house music from the early 1990's you will have heard this sound in many records. It is a classic sound that was created in the 80's on the Yamaha TX81Z and is also known as the solid bass. its most popular on Chime by Techno legends Orbital and Passion by Gat Decor to name but a few. Here you can grab it from the OXE FM Synth for free and drop it onto any beat to create that instant classic house sound.

JUICY BASS


Those developers at Tal always give away great free content alongside their premium plug ins. The Noise Maker is one of the best synths you can get with a variety of sound for a multitude of genres. The Juicy Bass is a squelchy sound that has instant funk written all over it. The resonance on this makes it even more groovier and with a slight tweaking you can get some good variations from it, especially if you automate it with the cut off.




FALKE BASS


Ever wondered where the bass that Daft Punk and Alan Braxe used came from? Well so do I and it was a woderful thing to find out that the Z3TA synth had managed to produce this sound which was named the Falke bass after Alan Braxe' studio partner Fred Falke. This sound is the one used on Daft Punks track's Voyager and Burnin and on many Falke productions.


I have made it a free pre set for you to use in any DAW, by simply dropping the waves into your chosen sampler. But it is put together here in Abelton's sampler. So take the pre set and drop it into your arrangement onto a midi track or use the waves and key them up in your own sampler. You can see the video below here where I do just that to demonstrate its power in a track.





Here below are the other 4 pre sets in demonstration mode for you to check out further. Enjoy.
