Need songs with really low bass? - Page 2

post #31 of 95
I found this Trance CD by Deepsky -- In Silico and the first song called "View From a Stairway" has 4 spots in the song that sweep from around 50 hz down to around 15 hz. There are also a couple of other songs in the album that have very deep bass notes.

For hard hitting bass drum slam the DVD of The Eagles Farewell Tour 1 from Melbourn in DTS surround sound has a lot of fun bass

My favorite is an unofficial release called the soundhound organ CD, and it has some of the finest low bass I've ever heard. Check these three tracks out:







Blue Man Group "Audio" DVD-A is a good one, too:





How 'bout a CD from the old Atlantic City organ -- real 64' pipes, extending down to 8hz. And it could create 128 foot pipes using interference between notes, causing a 4 hz fundamental!



Finally, no low bass demo is complete without "Bass I Love You." 5HZ? Hello!


Hi,

I am interested in low notes on tracks and would like to identify some of them I have. What software do you use to get the pics as shown?

It has a few tracks that are rated to 5hz! all done by the Boston Pops.
It is an older recording but it still moves the room.
link.... CLICK


Just 'cos this thread has been resurrected...

(1) Correction: "The Great Fantasy Adventure Album" from Telarc is by Eric Kunzel & The Cincinnati Pops.

(2) Some of the oldest Telarc "science fiction movie music" CDs from Eric Kunzel & The Cincinnati Pops [e.g., 'Time Warp', 'Star Tracks', and 'Star Tracks II'] dig a little deeper into the bass than do the newer ones.

My personal favorite for super low bass is opus dei. This goes way, way down there close to a few hz.
Here it is on youtube

There is a link there to a lossless WAV file in the description.

The song "childhood dreams" by Nelly Furtado has some serious pipe organ notes. The end of the song fibrates a stud in my wall.

the bass will destroy you


opus dei


Both are very good bass songs, especially tbwdy is good to test your system.

There is a song by a dude named Cellski called "I Said"...it has some of the deepest bass I have ever heard in a rap song. In fact, its so low, nothing would really pick it up properly until I bought a sub that would go BELOW 25Hz.

If you want to check it out, PM me and ill get you a copy.

Haha well this probably isn't very popular on the forum but Eternal by Bone Thugs-n-Harmony is very bass heavy.

I listened to the Ludacris song-How low can you go, for the first time yesterday. It was on a hip hop play list that my wife has on our computer. I didn't even know it was there. It has some pretty nasty bass drops. I was watching the metering L.E.D.'s on my pro amp while it was playing at just a moderate volume and it was really pulling some watts from the amp.

I have a couple of Diyma twelves and a pair of TC Sounds fifteens collecting dust in my garage at the moment. I've been toying with the idea of making an infrasonic sub. We're talking about fifteen, maybe even ten hertz.

An infrasonic subwoofer would be an exercise in futility if there's no infrasonic content in my music and movies. Therefore, I decided to find out what's in there.

These are tracks I would actually listen to, not "demo" tracks, or organ CDs and the like.

I am ranking these tracks in descending order, from one hertz to about forty.


Here's a spectrum analysis of "Ask Yourself" by Plastikman. We see the beat at 44hz, along with a second harmonic at 88hz. When listening to the track, you can hear an ominous ambient rumble in the track. Over my fifteens, it's audible, but buried beneath the beat. In the spectrum analysis, we see that it digs all the way down to THREE HERTZ, peaking just 8dB below the bassline!


According to Geddes, three subs improve the bass response in-room. If three is good, I figured eight is great. After installing eight subs, this was the track that really caught my attention. It sounds *completely* different with a serious set of subs. In the frequency analysis, we can see why. On a typical system, we'll hear the bassline at 46hz. But look what's going on down deep - the fundamental is actually at 23hz! That explains the added "weight" over the eight subs.


Here's an analysis of "The Humpty Dance" by Digital Underground. There's serious content all the way down to 30hz. You can see that this track would be forgiving on a cheap sub, because the bass line is "doubled". So this would mask 2nd harmonic distortion. Compare that bass line to the Plastikman bassline, where the fundamental is not only low, it's much louder than the harmonic. (IE, the Plastikman track will show off a clean sub.)



Here's a couple samples from the Matrix. The first is a thunderclap, the second is from the shootout scene where the concrete walls are crumbling. Not a whole lot here below 30hz. It looks like it's been high-passed. Looking at this graph, you can see how it would also be forgiving of a cheap sub, due to the spectrum content.

To sum it up, if you're speakers only go to 30hz, you're probably not missing a whole lot. Almost all the "bass" energy is in the octave from forty to eighty hertz. But there *are* a handful of tracks with synthetic bass lines that can only be heard properly if your speakers are flat to 20, or even 18hz. And yes, there's even bass down to 3hz.

Analysis was done with Audacity, using the instructions from Sourceforge.

Try this link. Its bassotronics website on soundclick. You can play his stuff in high quality. Loads of very very low bass tunes on there.

http://www.soundclick.com/bands/defa...?bandID=129857

Also you must try this one. Make it drop!

Play it and come back and tell me how much off a big smile you had.

http://www.soundclick.com/bands/defa...?bandID=520791

There's me thinking I was the only one who liked playing this kinda stuff for fun.

cheers

Graham

If you want an album that has some nice low bass (no infra, but I haven't graphed...) but also some real class and a fantastic recording/mix.... I recommend Boz Scaggs - Dig (2001).

Specifically tracks "Thanks To You" and "Get On The Natch".

Cheers!

P.S. - Would be nice if one of you "graph" guys could graph either of those 2 tracks!

I second this, been a Telarc / Kunzel fan for a decade now, going back to my car audio days when a/d/s was still the bomb. The above mentioned are great bass testers indeed. Also try Telarc's "Chiller". For jazz I would recommend Foreplay and Thom Rotella Band. Happy bass hunting!

for all the songs ppl are recommending......... download spectrum analyzer pro live (freeware or shareware version) and get on youtube. find the songs ppl are recommending, play them and if the bass doesn't go below 45hz...... well, it doesn't really go low, does it??? sounds like it does in a nice HT or a car, but wait till you hear songs at 35Hz and lower....

The Japanese taiko drum group, Kodo, has a 25th Anniversary CD that has content that reaches down to 20hz content.

Warning though - your sub may be too scared to handle this, and if it can then, it may turn your brain to mush if turned up too high
post #56 of 95
Suprisingly enough, one of the most unexpected sources of very low bass is the Fifth Element sound track, very well recorded with some very low stuff.

One irritating consequence of my reading this thread...

I pulled out MEGA MOVIES, one of the Telarc "movie music" CDs from Eric Kunzel & The Cincinnati Pops (to do a little 'bass testing'!). As a preface to the Main Title (music) from Godzilla (1998), the CD contains an sfx track, A Stroll in New York City, which has the 'warning': "Frequencies down to 5 Hz will make this track a challenge for even the best systems to reproduce without stress"...!

As I had not previously noticed that liner note, I had been blissfully unaware of how inadequate is my (home office) system to play the CD!

Mains: Yamaha AST-S1 ('bass extension' 28Hz - 20kHz; -10dB at 25Hz; -20dB at 20Hz). Primary Sub: Jamo SUB 550 (26Hz - 150Hz; low frequency roll-off unknown).

Ouch! Missed 5Hz reproduction by a country mile!

yup. that's called a "resultant" stop

from wiki:

Diaphone-Dulzian

The organ possesses a unique stop in the organ world, the 64' Diaphone-Dulzian in the Right Stage chamber (Pedal Right division), one of only two true 64' stops in the world. (The other 64' stop is the Contra-Trombone reed stop in the Sydney Town Hall Grand Organ.) The stop is unique because it is a reed/flue hybrid.

When construction of the organ commenced, it was planned to have two 64' stops in the pedal, a Diaphone Profunda and a Dulzian. Later, the design was revised, and the Diaphone was cut, because it was feared it would crowd the Right Stage chamber (due to the width of the pipes). Consequently, the Dulzian was moved to the Right Stage chamber. However, the sound of the 64' Dulzian did not meet the criteria, requiring Diaphone pipes to be used for the lowest 22 notes. The remaining pipes in the rank are reeds. Because of the low frequencies involved, and because the diaphone is voiced to imitate a reed stop, the transition from reed to diaphone cannot be heard.

The Diaphone-Dulzian's low-C pipe stands 64' 9" (19.7 m) tall, weighs 3,350 pounds (1,675 kg), and produces a frequency of 8 Hz (the sound of the vibrating pallet is described as "a helicopter hovering over the building"), a tone that is more felt than heard. The pipe stands upright for about 40 feet (12 m), the remainder is mitred (turned) towards the Right Stage chamber's grill. All pipes taller than 32 feet (9.8 m) are designed in this manner.

The Diaphone-Dulzian rank spans from C3 to g²; it is sufficiently extended so that the 64', 32', 16', 8' and 4' unison stops, and the 42²/3', 211/3' and 10²/3' mutation stops, may be drawn from the same rank. No other extension rank in the world spans that far. Also, when the 64' and 42²/3' are combined, the resultant tone simulates a 128' stop, equivalent to a 4-Hz tone on low C.

Use of the Diaphone-Dulzian is rare, being used primarily in registrations of moderate volume. It may drowned out if too many registrations are used, and overpowering when dominant. Additionally, extended use of the stop's lower notes may cause structural damage to the building.
