Old Hardware synth for 'Fat' Electro baseline

Hey guys,

I've never really had the budget to use vintage synthesisers and they have always interested me.

I'm currently working on a track and I need a really fat sounding bass. I'm thinking of renting a hardware synth as I would like to work with an
analogue bass plus it would be great fun! Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm thinking the original MS-20 atm?

Cheers guys! :D

You can use a new ms-20 too. Sh-101 is cool and still affordable. You might be in the wrong forum here tho

Had a more in-depth search and there's another good post on here. People suggested the Sequential Pro One?

I should probably give an example.. I'm looking for something similar to the Steve Angello - Knas baseline. I've tweeted the guy at Vengeance who actually made that but not sure if I'll get a response. Anyone have any ideas of what was used?



Thanks again

The best would be a minimoog (in good condition - otherwise, it could quickly become a nightmare) - if you don't have the budget, try to find a second hand Studio Electronics SE-1 - very impressive (we have both and usually work with the SE-1) - have fun !

Thanks for that.

As I'm only renting it budget isn't a major concern.

Yep the MiniMoog is the first synth that comes to mind for that description.
Though both an MS20 and Pro One are capable of great classic bass sounds, the MiniMoog is the King for that.

I just had a listen to Knas, and it sounds like a more modern synth doing the bassline. It doesn't make me think an old hardware synth.

Yeah the moog filter might be a little out of style

Thanks again
I am that guy
The sound uses nothing but 2 Nexus internal sawtooth waveforms and a white noise + some distortion inserts in nexus. The Preset in Nexus is called Crazy Dab Bass

no "old magic vintage gear" involved

dude... working on a minimoog, prodigy, juno... thought they sounded FAT... until I bought a moogerfooger 107 - The FreqBox. it's a VCO that follows your input signal, so it's like an additional oszillator. this little thing really turns your paltry snythsounds into screaming monsters, especially leads and bass sounds. i'd rather sell the minimoog than the mf107... for instant fun: loopback-mode on the minimoog plus mf107

Wow...

So nice to see mister manuel schleiss on this forum.

Have Nexus myself and one of the only soft synths I own these days.

Cheers
