    deep sub bass rumble in films...

    How do they get it? They are almost percussive but sustain forever type of sound and is so low and shakes the room with good speakers.

    i think that one thing you can do is take something like a bass drum and detune down an octave or so in kontakt then play it like that.

    Use a single sine wave oscillator and pitch it down to where you want it, then EQ it at the frequencies around 50-100 Hz. Most synths can easily do that. Also, there are all kinds of sub bass patches available in software currently on the market such as Trilian, SampleTank, Kontakt etc., and there are even free sub bass VSTs available (e.g. subatomic bass vst). Google is your friend!

    sine wave has no harmonics i don't think EQ at 50-100 hz will have any effect unless you play there to begin with

    but not certain kind of new to this

    The DBX 120 is the man at doing this, get the hardware version they are so cheap on ebay. If not get the new generation one I think they still sell it.


    Also the Sub Boomz Patch from Drums of War is precisely what you describe. It is the very first sound in the movie Avatar - just a huge - BOOOOOOOOM - at kind of a soft dynamic.

    Itno, did I say a single pure sine wave has harmonics? I suspect those who are familiar with generating various frequencies and/or combining them will understand where I was going with that. In any case, it's not important...still lots of ready-made products available for those who don't wish to twiddle knobs.

    And n8tron, Mike(?) is right...the Sub Boomz "Drums of War" patch may be one of the type for which you are looking if you want both a drum sound and DEEP sub bass. It will also provide a good test for your studio speakers And, although the folks from Cinesamples were too polite to mention it, there's also a Solstice Sale on at Cinesamples right now (until June 21st) where you can get 15% off their products (tip: c/o their Toms software as well). LOL, no this is a not a paid commercial and I have no direct link to Cinesamples other than being just another satisfied customer. ..................frank
