Step 2: Something of particular note with this track is that the bassline tracks the riff exactly. In other words, in much of the track the music is made-up almost entirely of a single note riff (playing at various octaves, with different sounds).
So next we dial up TAL’s NoiseMaker plug-in and create a patch with two slightly detuned oscillators and large amounts of low-pass filtering. This gives us a warm bass sound that will sit under the Jupiter part well.
The best way to create this part is to copy the MIDI notes to a new track that’s routed to NoiseMaker. This allows you to bring the low-end in or out of the track, giving extra flexibility when putting together a meaningful arrangement. However, there’s nothing to stop you routing all the layered elements to a Group/Buss Channel if you need overall control of the riff once it’s complete.
