(I am visualizing an Andromeda so adapt to whatever you are using)
1. 1 Osc (or two if you don't have the option of multiple waveshapes) using positive saw and a square wave. If you have PWM available as a waveshape, set the duty cycle around 55-65% and modulate the PWM with a reverse, key-triggered LFO on a negative cycle with rate around 10hz, play around with this a little bit. If your synth has a noise generator and/or a ring modulator, use these to get more texture with your patch.
3. I like to use the Andromeda for basses like this, it gets really gooey with the filters in parallel (12db and 24db). Open up the 12db filter around 75%, give it alot of that SEM-ish resonance, set the filter envelope to, I don't know, maybe A: 10 D: 0 S:60 R: 30, set the filter envelope amount until it begins to sound "gooey". Won't sound as gooey with plugins vs an analog synth, but try it.
4. Set the 24db filter to maybe 20% open, if you can modulate the cutoff frequency, give it a little velocity. Bring up the resonance to the point where it isn't self-oscillating, but you feel/hear a rumble in the subs. Give it some filter envelope until it snaps in your face.
5. I like to control the high freqs on these soundss, so on your multimode 12db filter, take away some of the high freqs but not too much otherwise the sound with lose powerful overtones.
6. In the post-filter mixer, give it a sine (I am visualizing this on an Andy but you can do something similar if your oscillator section has a pre/post filter option) the Andy has a wicked ring mod so I would give it some of that.
7. Set your amp envelope to something like A: 5 D: 45 S: 25 R: 20.
Adjust settings to taste, turn down the tempo in your master sequencer (or MPC/drum machine), feel the funk and jam out a bassline. Probably won't sound like anyone elses, but hey, thats a good thing right?
Im interested in what synth you a referring when producing this sound?
Im operating mainly on Sylenth that does not allow PWM and is limited its osc settings. I also have diva but as im only new to the game its a bit more complex.
think this is a nice example of Fm type vibe in these house tunes

I would like to hear what you guys that posted saying it is an easy sound to make come up with? As I'm finding a lot of people making it sound easy not only on this thread but also other. Yes the Principal I understand is easy to make this sound but the way in witch some artists make it sound ''Fat'' and cut through the mix is been difficult.
heres the closet I've been able get to this sound in sylenth, this patch was past onto me by a friend Zippyshare.com - Sylenth deep bass.fxp
