Varg Style Synth Bass

Hey guys,

some time ago I stumbled over this video of Varg peforming at Forte Festival:

Really attached to his sound aesthetic in general and the bass sound in this video in particular. Talking about that single bass note which comes in together with the 4/4 kick, at 00:28 in the video. This bass is absolutely insane.

For some time I tried to figure out how to achieve these kind of bass sounds with my synths. I tried with the 303, but it was not satisfying. Also (so far) no results with my Korg MS-20 Mini. I think I'm slowly getting there, but in the end I have no idea what exactly he uses for it.

Any chance you guys have a better grasp of how to achieve these nicely defined bass sounds (which synth + fx combo) ? Thanks in advance!

Are you sure it is not the effect of big amplifiers, many big speakers, distance from the stage, crappy smartphone microphone ?
That kind of signal chain can affect the sound quite a lot.

Definitely is! Especially for low end power and body, yeah.
Still, really liking the style of it and wouldn’t classify it as a simple pulse, saw or whatever .. but similar to the basses in some of the Abdullah’s rashim records as well
