I'm working on an art project (http://ll.frey.co.nz) and I'd like to synthesize something that sounds like this. It's a low deep bass thud, as heard on Mark Lanegan's glorious cover of 'Man in the Long Black Coat' from the 'I'm Not There' soundtrack:
(Four samples of the sound.) I assume it was constructed by passing a lowpass filtered kick drum through a reverb with a long delay.
I need to re-make this in a generative fashion, so I can trigger it with parametric variations. I am currently using Pure Data as a sound engine, with a view to internalising the DSP code using a C/C++ library (TBD). I have been playing around with an Roman Hafaeli's 808 kick drum simulator but i can't get anything that sounds as nice as this.
Any tips about how to synthesize something like this appreciated.
