Quick Tip: Pluck Bass Patch On Moog Subsequent 37 Tutorial

Published on Apr 23, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"Here is a quick tip on how to make a plucky bass sound on a Moog synth.

You will need:
- a 2 oscillator bass synth (in this video we used a Moog Subsequent 37)

The patch:
- Oscillator 1 set to saw waveform
- Oscillator 2 set to square waveform
- Slow PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) from the LFO to oscillator 2
- Oscillator 1, 2, & sub oscillator levels all the way up
- Filter cutoff all the way down
- Filter envelope amount 2/3 to 3/4 up
- Amp and filter envelopes set to no attack or decay and full sustain and some release.

To get a giant plucky bass sound out of a Moog synth try these settings. With the sustain all the way up and release adjustable the gate length of your sequencer will adjust how plucky or long the sound is. Alternatively you could have the sustain at zero and adjust your envelope length with the decay. The steep 24db filter is closed all the way down and then opened by the filter envelope.

To thicken the sound up you can add in a sub oscillator or feedback from the output to the filter input (this is normalized on the Subsequent 37). The sound can be further tweaked by adjusting the octaves and detuning of the two oscillators, the filter envelope amount, and the envelope shapes.
