Alphaville - Big in Japan Bass Sound

Postby BassistundSynth » 02 Nov 2022, 11:17

Which one of you can create the distinctive bass sound of Big in Japan? I just can't do it and I'm on the verge of despair.
This is my attempt at one version

Hi, maybe you are reading the forum through a translation software like Google Translate. If ever you post your own contribution, you would need to translate it into English by yourself (translate.google.com or deepl.com)! It isn't done automatically.

And maybe you'd have a link to exactly that version of the song you are looking for.

it sounds like a square wave with a sub octave square wave - the filter envelope is subtle and not much resonance.

Basically Too Many Nords to Haul to a Gig

I rather think the OSC are tuned against each other with a fifth.
