-Subway(eat fresh, makes it nice and gritty, don’t)
-Pepper(if done right)
-Flag(makes it v crispy)
-Low octaves on a piano(I used this in Memories, I recommend for a subtle, rich feel)
-Slope(goes great w/ fragment or spray, makes it really tight and tense+gritty)
-The low octaves on Hour(try this pls, can give feels and sounds really cool)
-The low octaves on Vacuum(when skillfully paired w/ Subway, can create cool sound, I used this in Don’t)
-Experiment yourself, don’t just copy me!
Really, when layering chords the low octaves of the instruments you use can create some cool basses as well.
In my opinion, drums in Future Bass is just as important as the wubs. Having a basic pattern is boring and an instant turn off for most fb fans (or at least me). You should have great drums with lots of different sounds.
Percussion from organic elements 1 & 2 (1 is better imo) are great to add little extra sounds to the drums.
Also, don’t forget hi-hats. This goes for most (up-beat/exciting) genres, but remember hi-hats, and not just a simple continuous pattern, add rolls and triplets, anything that sounds good to the beat of the song. It also sounds great to change the pitch to them minimally. Don’t make he hi-hats too loud, and always (for every instrument) mess with the volume bars until it sinks into the song.
Here’s a project link with a drum pattern for example. These are he drums in my next song, so please don’t steal it, it’s just an example. https://app.auxy.co/projects/2gEKIGD2RS5lFBsQcg9DIQ==
Not too many hi-hats, but they didn’t sound great in the song itself when there were more. Still a good example.
Bump. Don’t make the hi-hats too complicated, because that can end up sounding really jumbled. Also, carefully pick your hi-hat sound. Some can be too dark sounding, some are too harsh, some are too soft, so pick one that matches your style.
