sample a bass note on you mpc. then roll off any hi's or mid's, then pitch 16 levels.

I forgot which producer it was that said this but essentially he liked to use the FLUTE patches on keyboards because they push a lot of air if you play them in the lower frequencies.

Sine waves are cool, but I think using like a pan flute would be more interesting.

This, and ad a low volume filtered kick on the same pad to get
that subtle bump in the begining, witch imo makes the bass more rhythmic
and interesting.
