[quote="Oxidelic"]well first of all and looking at the graphics i think you should change the note. if your fundmental is showing at 60hz or your bass note is very high, C1 - C2 or because you have lowcuted tooooo much your bass. also looking at your cronox config i see that at the OSC section it is set to be 1octave up the note, put it on 0, and also I think you have to press the TRCK button which means the sound will follow the midi notes. otherwise it will stay constantly on a predetermined note. Also you have to chek the note lenght of your bass line. one of the most important things is to try to get the sound of the bass as close as we like it without any further "enhancer", all those rbass, maxbass are just to give a further "fatness" or "warmth" to the bass. Also look carefully at Andy's post too. there are some great tips there too, especially for the sustain and the decays. you should push them all the way up. normally just with the sustain it will be enough but try with the decay too. almost no release, and paly a bit with the spread, track and depth knobs too.

Also this tips are for general crunchy rubberlike low basslines, it is a start point to try to continue experimenting, maybe adding another Osc for the midsection? ;)

:P hehe

Totally with you on the Waves plugins Rbass and Maxbass
Also VComp and FL Maximus are great for boosting bass signals for kicks and bass channels :P Used these in Ancient Storyteller :) Kickass

Remember use your ears not your head xD lol
