Sound Design: Growl Bass in Serum

Icon Alumni Kompany takes you into Xfer Serum to create a Skrillex style growl bass. Free Ableton Live Project and Serum Preset download included!

How to Make Growl Bass

Get a firsthand look at Kompany’s sound design techniques while learning how to master Serum. Kompany takes you through every step from wavetable selection to post-processing. Learn how to manipulate the sound with different LFO curves that modulate various controls. He also discusses the different wavetable modes and how they alter the sound when combined with a vowel filter. Lastly, Kompany gives the patch some final treatment with a combination of effects to enhance the timbre and fatten up the sound.

The Serum patch alone is only the first part of the process. After designing the growl bass, Kompany takes you into Ableton Live and demonstrates how to bring the sound to life. Through a series of post-production techniques, Kompany transforms the bass growl into a high-powered low-end monster.

If your looking for that aggressive Skrillex style bass sound, then this patch is for you! Download the Ableton Live project FREE below.
