How To Make Wobble Bass In FL Studio

Wobble bass is widely used in dubstep, but also on other musical styles such as house and drum & bass. FL Studio offers nice set of tools to create wobble bass easily with almost any VST synth there is.

In the following tutorial video I show you two easy methods to create wobble bass. You’ll learn to use the automation with LFO tool effectively. I will be using SimSynth Live as the example synth, but you can use the same principle with any synth.

I’m also sharing two FL Studio project files where both of the methods are all set to get you going.

(Credits to Audiotuts+ for teaching me this method in a first place!)

There are a lot if different ways achieve this effect I like to use Love Filter, and control the LFO speed using my midi controller, and record the automation. I guess ANY LFO will work.

Yeah I used the love filter just to test it out while back, I liked it but I had 3 automation clips for the wobble and I just got too frustrated lol. I might try to incorperate some wobbles into a house track or something but I can’t make dubstep 🙁 But I love listening to it!

Instead of adding Fruity Fast LP as an effect in the mixer, can’t you use the Fast LP in the instrument channel settings window, as it’s supposedly the same?

Don’t have FL Studio yet, so I wouldn’t know.

You can use the LFO tool to change the speed of the wobble. 🙂

THX for great dubstep tutorial, man!

Expected to see your favourite 3xOsc as a dubstep source sound – can’t believe that you used SimSynth! 😉

Little tip – speed knob in LFO tool can be easily adjusted to project’s tempo by simple ‘right clicking’ & selecting step which you need! So there is no need to run metronome 😉

Am i the only one who cant “make unique”? I’ve tried over and over followed exactly what you do but it won’t let me it says clone for further editing! UGHGHGHG

Okay, I have 2 questions. I see that you’re using the LFO on the playlist, after you lay down your bassline.

1) I dont see LFO under “Tools”. Im using NI Massive rather than Bassmoog or whatever, does that matter? Or is LFO a standalone VST that I can get?

2) How can I use the LFO function to make the bass wobble without affecting my drumlines? Thanks.

LFO is just a Low Freq Oscillator that comes with most DAWs..some plugins have it disabled,as a matter of fact it would be disabled on some instrument channels(depending on the instrument type,I assume its only for low freq instruments judging from the name ). Try Alt+O to see the window pops up.

it’s an oscillator that oscillates at a low frequency. It’s not ‘for’ ‘low freq instruments’ (what are they on a DAW!?)

A LFO is not under tools, they’re built into plugins, or in the channel settings window.

It won’t affect your drumlines anyway as they’re per channel.

HTH.

Also – as you didn’t know what a LFO was, you should probably not bother using Massive and go for something simpler to learn on.

Actually, probaby worth learning to make music from scratch!

This is a very good short read.
