Another thread...Thanks for helping:

Am trying to setup Karma so that when I play a chord with the left hand an additional sub-base note is produced, the root note.  It doesn't need to be rhythmic, just sounding while I hold the keys. 

I have been fiddling round with the settings of 1044 droner but am sure there must be a RTC model that comes closer to it? 

And it should stay within a certain key range, the sound of this sub-base note, like C1 to C2.

I did read the OP manual/parameter guide but I just don't get the results am looking for.

try the synth bass sub category, shiould be several with included factory FX

I recall using Dark Bass program for deep bass.

in Program mode , quick split feature will display your your split points/key range per instrument

Using Combi mode will also get you there

Ok, maybe I wasn't clear - am using a pad sound (program) only, not a split. Am playing a chord around C4 range, and want to add a bass note from the same sound like 2 octaves lower. And then within this lower octave-range.

I want to do this so as to have a pad sound, plus a low bass (which one usually plays with the left hand, thumb and small finger) and the keep the right hand free for the melody.

OIC, i think, the Sub bass in your title took me else where

I recommend working in Combi mode

Sounds like you need a Karma GE to handle the bass note work

If so, finding that GE and mapping it to a key range, lets say using module 1 should get you there.

Stephen can be more precise.

If I understand you correctly, when you play a chord you want a bass sound to play the lowest note always?

There's an easier way.

For example, take any mono bass program such as Program ID066 Distortion Head.

On Program Basic > set Voice Assign: Priority to Low.

That’s it. No matter how many notes you play, it will always play the lowest note you are holding.

Now save that program and put it in a combi.

Whenever you play a chord, the lowest note will be played by the bass program.

Does that do what you want?

Thanks Stephen, I was more thinking of

- a program, not a combi
- a pad sound, and with the same sound add the base-note of a chord
- so no separate bass-guitar etc sound but within the same program/sound

Just as if I had a third arm/hand to hold the bass tones about 2 octaves lower than the chord.

Great tip Stephen - May not meet the OP’s objective, but I can use that idea for some of my voices in the future. Thanks!
