Sweet drum and synth sound! Are you abusing the 303 bass synths in this?

Thx but sorry, what is the 303 bass synths !?

1 PCsynth is guitar+disto (name : saber 5thes 3rds).
1 PCsynth is bassguitar (name : electric bass)

2 subsynth are near and almost the same notes. The 2 same subsytnth allow me to have a big sound.

1 bassline

1 drum, always the same :) ODMX ..... but i need more bassssssssss

The 303 base is the Bassline

The 303 base is the Bassline machine, it's "modeled" after the TB-303 which started out as an actual imitation for a real bass guitar fill until drugged out techno musicians started staring at the knobs and then twisted them as hours passed from their lives.

Suddenly Acid was born.

I dont know if i have understood ... I'm french.

Well .... no my bass line is not the 303, it's a sf2. But i have a track "bassline", it's the first sound you listen, there is an effect so it's not really my "official" bass line ^^

Nice idea on the subsynths. I assume you are putting each just a tiny bit out of tune with each other? That should give it a nice fat bass sound I'd think.

Explanation in French for Mr.

Explanation in French for Mr. Zicman, I happen to be french-canadian ;-)

Je pense que tu avais bien compris. La machine "BassLine" dans Caustic est modelé d'apres un instrument legendaire de Roland, le TB-303. Il etait supposé remplacer un bassiste mais n'a pas atteint la popularité avant que les pioniers du techno s'en servent pour obtenir le son "acid" qu'on connait aujourd'hui. Bref, quand les gens disent "303", ils veulent dire cette machine, donc dans ce cas, on demandait si tu te servais d'une machine "bassline" pour obtenir ce son.

Yep, 2 Subsynth

Yep, 2 Subsynth
the first is louder and 1 octave more than the 2nd (not a real octave, a subsynth have 2 wave, i only change 1 of the 2 wave's octave). But 90% of notes are the same.
I like the sound but i have worked on it too much and now i can't bear my song ... and i hate the end, i don't find for the moment :(

Man don't be to hard on

Man don't be to hard on yourself. Your song is good and all you need to do is forget about this one and make an album!

On thing I learned in programming, if you stare to long at something your will seen green spots.

He's just saying you should

He's just saying you should move on to the next song and keep getting even better. If you look at one thing too long, you can get tired of it.

I find that if I spend too

I find that if I spend too much time on one song, I get burned out and wanna just give up on it. Right now on my ChillBlue project (the big one) I am currently working on 7 different tracks, that I switch from song to song, working on each one seperately. Helps keep my mind fresh and sometimes an idea pops up.

This is especially true for those who sit down to master a track (we're talking big consoles or DAW -- Steinburg Cubase Nuendo WaveLab etc....)

Pace yourself and you will get good results. Good stuff takes time and will be worth the wait for the rest of us who want to hear each others Caustic Generated Grooves.

OP, you're off to a great start, keep it up!

Very good. 2 same subsynths

Very good. 2 same subsynths to get a big sound is a good idea, tried it with handclaps (beat pattern), also because I wanted to play with echo on only the handclaps.
