Vice City (Raul Cardenas) | Dubstep Bass in Serum | Ableton Live

Pyramind mentor Raul Cardenas aka Vice City goes over making dubstep basses in Serum. These sounds are commonly heard in music by various artists like Zomboy, MUST DIE!, and Barely Alive.

“This tutorial is about knowing what FM does to your sound, and what filters can do.”

Raul uses the Dist Bass Dropper and Matrix C64 wavetables to craft this bass in Serum, but stresses that those following along should experiment with different wavetables. He combines FM and filter modulation to make the sound change over time. He also applies some of Serum’s built-in effects like multiband compression and hyper/dimension.
