Scream and Shout Intro plucky bass?

How to do this, that and the other. Share, learn, teach. How did X do that? How can I sound like Y?

Hello all,

I just started getting into music production about a year ago and I wanted to start out by recreating something similar to the plucky bass sound you hear at the beginning of Scream and Shout will.i.am and brittney spears. I think Basto produced it, not sure.

just the first ten seconds

I can come pretty close, but I can't seem to get the same sharp clean and crisp quality as the pro's. How do I get to the professional quality levels.... it's killing me! I used sylenth and some waves plugins.

put some very short percussion sample over the synth so the attack sound is more accentuated.

of course a attack-dedicated synth layer would do it aswell.

Thanks for the reply! Super helpful.

I will try like a moog or line bass sound with some attack dedicated synth. Prob with Massive. Thanks!
