Marc Doty Explores The Secrets Of Great Bass in Arturia MatrixBrute

Marc Doty shows you how to tweak and set up Arturia's monster synth - MatrixBrute - to get a massive bass sound. Read on to find out the secret.  

Arturia's MatrixBrute is a true powerhouse of synthesis - a hardware monster with almost infinite options. So what could be better than having an expert on hand to help you out? In this short video from the course MatrixBrute 201: Advanced Synthesis, synth expert Marc Doty gets to grips with the task of controlling and boosting the amount of bass you can get out of MatrixBrute. 

While some vintage synths don't make it easy to get a really big bass end, Marc shows you how MatrixBrute can be set up to generate a huge bass tone, with relatively simple steps. It's just a case of tweaking specific oscillators, filters and a few other parameters. So once you've achieved maximum bass, be sure to check out the rest of the videos in the course to become a MatrixBrute master!
