rolling basslines

Keep the rhythm going

Another way to add some excitement and energy into your mix is using rolling basslines
they are easy to make. You basically just make them with a tonic for example whatever chord your in if its bflat or cmaj you just take that one note and go up an octave.

Then you put them around the sub bass if  your sub bass falls on 3 5 7 9 11 and 13 etc then your rolling basslines will hit around 1,2,4,6,8,10 and 12.

To get that true trance rolling bassline what you want to do is have some interplay with both notes the one up ,higher up an octave,and the lower one. and play around with it with your sub bass and your kick until you get it just right.

So my suggestion is to only use a analog soft synth for this like v-station or synth1 etc
2 to fatten up the soun…
