How to make basslines for disco, techno, house, and more (free MIDI and presets included)

In some genres, bass plays more of a supportive role, while in others it’s the star of the mix. In this video tutorial, we show you how to design bass instruments and structure MIDI patterns for a wide array of genres. We’re using FL Studio, but most of the concepts are applicable in all DAWs.
