Clean car sounding like saturation

Postby kappceo » Sun Jun 24, 2018 4:28 pm

Hi guys

Im looking for a way to get that clean natural sounding like saturation on bass and kicks, as if my desk was vibrating because of the bass. It sounds like a kind of car saturation. I know I can't get it with regular saturation plugins but i can't figure out how to do it.

Here are some links to let you hear what i'm talking about (it's a little bit subtle so you have to pay attention):

Sorry for my english i'm not english speaker. Thanks.

I'm really sorry, but I don't understand what you mean by 'car saturation'. Could you please explain what you mean by that?

(Car = automobile, so how does a vehicle affect a kick? sorry - being a bit slow today)

I meant the way the music sounds in a car, the way its saturated

...do you mean a kind of rattling, distorted sound, like the dashboard is buzzing...?

Decapitator is popular, though I'm sure you could get a similar effect with other plugins...

I already have this plugin but still can't get what i want. I'm trying to get something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0IM-phqINZg
Sometimes i can hear this sound in my headphones because the left side is a little bit blown and this is exactly what i want. A kind of blown woofer effect. I think it's a mastering issue.

Take a craft knife to an old speaker cone and re amp it? Clout the magnet until the voice coil rubs?

If I'm trying to add a bit of dirt and break-up to something, my starting point is normally Sound Toys Devil Loc: https://www.soundtoys.com/product/devil-loc/
There's a free demo so give that a go. :)

Ignore the post count, I have no idea what I'm doing...

Yep, that's an excellent suggestion drew!

Devil Loc is based on Shure's Level-Loc Audio Level Controller, and its Crunch and Crush controls provide a uniquely pumping compression and transistor-style distortion. There's nothing quite like it (except of course for Soundtoys' Devil Loc Deluxe, with added Release and Darkness controls ;) )
