Super Bass [Free Ableton Live Rack #28]


AfroDJMac's Super Bass!

Sometimes you just need a thick heavy bass sound.  Over the last few months, I’ve gotten a few requests for some heavy bass sounds.   While working on one of my tracks called “Part of Me,”  I programmed a bass sound that I liked quite a bit, and for this installment of my Free Weekly Ableton Live Rack series,  I have modified that particular bass sound.

I really appreciate Ableton’s Analog synth for its deep sound sculpting potential and really nice filter section.  It’s a synth that seems to get deeper and deeper every time I load it up.  This Ableton Live Instrument Rack was created with the idea of thick bass sounds in mind.  I used both oscillators, one a saw wave the other a square wave tuned an octave lower.  There’s a slight detuning to thicken up the sound and a bunch of effects stringed together, most notably, The Ableton Amp plug in.  Luckily and to my surprise, this rack winds up being more than just a bass sound.  Follow along in the video below as I take you through the rack and show how it can be sculpted into heavy bass sounds, pleasing chords/ pads, and soaring leads.


Please check out some of my “Premium Racks” including the latest made from my OP-1 synth (on sale at a special introductory price until October 11th)



If you have interesting samples you’d like me to work with, let me know and we can help spread the word about each other :)  And, as always, if you create any music using any of the AfroDJMac racks, send it to my Soundcloud and I will post it!  Here’s one from JM-DG using a few racks from past weeks!

    That live set you put with it is so sick….I got some hip hop drums I can put with it and do a couple of verses over it!

    • AfroDJMac

      That’d be awesome, send it along. Maybe we can do a collaboration…

      • Abacus Beatz

        Thank you for the free racks…I will be getting some of the premium stuff soon! I love DJ’ing but I never got into production until now! I’ve been missing out all these years! Ableton has really opened my mind up. I have to get a MIDI keyboard now to go along with my APC40 and MPD 26.

        Keep it going!!

        • AfroDJMac

          Excellent do it up!

          • Abacus Beats

            How do I send this beat to you? My connection to lay down vocals is leaving soon so I won’t get a chance to put a rhyme to it. I’m in the US military BTW. Stationed in Korea atm. I can add you to my soundlcoud as well. Maybe we can do some more with it as you said and collaborate.

            Thanks again!

    • AfroDJMac
