Create a healthy Reese bass with Serum (fix the Reese bass / two-oscillator sub bass drift problem)

It’s easy and fun to create two-oscillator basses such as Reese basses with Serum, as they sound lively due to the movement caused by two detuned oscillators.
However, this often causes a problem with sub bass, which will also drift in and out, which we don’t want: we want a solid sub bass level.
This video shows you how it’s easy to fix this with Serum.

Some good free plugins!

That remix is something I did with Renoise, too, so let’s take a look at that: drums, some creative choices, synths etc.
Also, a video about doing a custom breakbeat is coming.

Fanu remixes peyote buttons

Surprise Fanu release.
New deep vocal D&B time.

I present to you my new one-off remix job I did for Peyote Buttons Music. He kindly contacted me about a possible remix, and, TBH, I don’t remix stuff _that_ often, but the original kind of struck a chord in me and I really wanted to get this busy with this one.

The result is here, and I’m happy about how it came out.
If deep vocal DNB is your thing…this might be, too.
