How to clean out your 808 basses

How to clean out your 808 basses
If there is an instrument I love to play with its probably the 808 bass!
So today am going to show you how to set up and clean your 808 bass (this tutorial doesn’t apply to 808’s that are housed by VST’s e.g.  Trapboom ) so that it comes out nicely.
Am assuming that you already have Fruity Loop Studio installed, and an 808 soundpack that you have downloaded. If you do not have an 808 soundpack you can get one from and
Step 1: Find your 808 bass and add it  to the step sequencer.
Right click your 808 bass and then click on open in new channel

Step 2: Click on the 808 bass that you have added to the step sequencer to bring up the channel settings. When the channel settings menu pops up click on the INS tab and then select the VOL envelope tab.

Step 3: Adjust the ADSR (attack, delay, sustain and release)
Click on the att knob and reduce the attack, do the same for the dec, sus and rel knobs. The idea is to get a square like curve. After you do this, your bass should not continue playing or echoing after you stop pressing the key or playing it in the piano roll /step sequencer.

If you continue to hear any noise or sound that you do not like then you can proceed to step 4 .
Step 4:  Adjust the pre- computed effects.  This is something you do not want to overdo, so do it with caution. Go to the loop panel and unmark loop using points . if you continue to hear any noise or unwanted sound then go to the pre-computed effects tab and then click-and-hold the out knob .Thereafter , adjust the knob until you you can nolonger hear the unwanted sound or it until it becomes faint.

If you have any questions please post them in the comments section.
