Hey guys,

Any sound designers here can help with a preset that sounds like the Log Drum preset on Fl Studio's DX10? or how to make it on Serum or Sylenth? I'm using Ableton 10.

I've been trying to get that sound for days but I keep getting that 'Donk' bass ffs!

Here's an example on youtube (jump to 24:48 to get what I mean)

Serum doesn't give you the same type of attack to that sound but you could add the main pitch to another envelope and create a quick down pitch for 1-5 milliseconds and then set amount to taste

Dude! you are a legend mate!

I kinda got close to making a similar sound and your right, Serum doesn't have that impact on the attack. I've also tried it on Sylenth and it seems to be a bit better than Serum.

Big up brotherman! You are an absolute BAWS!

Hero! This video really helped. I'm using serum and was struggling to get the sound (miles off). Followed your video, used separate envelops to modulate FM and the filter and added a kick transient, gave it a sharp attack and modulated the pitch to get more of that click. Worked a treat.

Choos, I tried to recreate the patch in Vital yesterday, but it sounded very different. I'm not sure I did the FM modulation correctly. Then I tried the same in Abletons Operator and it sounded even more different (but I ended up creating a very kool sound, not a log drum bass though).

Can you show how to do it in Vital, especially the FM part?

That attacky bit can obviously also be done in Serum but it was an afterthought from the last time I recorded it
