Clipping..

Im trying to get a similar (i think it's clipping?) bass sound to that which is in Missy Elliot's 'Fix My Weave' ... how can I acheive this kind of clipped sound? I'm using Logic and as you can tell, am no expert mixer.

The only way i could think of was to send the bass to a bus, then clip that bus which is then sent to another bus to control the volume..?

I hope this makes sense...anyway, if i'm totally off track, would be cool if someone could help me out..

Also...is this possibly what i might be looking for..?

Digital clipping is generally a very bad, bad thing...in fact, I don't know that I've ever met anyone who could hear it and thought it sounded even remotely OK. I doubt the bass sound you want is created via clipping, though I suppose in this day and age, I could be wrong

Try the demo and see if it makes the correct sound, in between politely muting itself. Just please don't try the demo on released product, that is not what it's there for

Yeah, but I hear SOOOOO many two track "beats" digitally clipped. I don't think people notice. Or they know they want it pushed and don't know a better way.
