I never thought of it this way. Maybe its because my knowledge about music theory is really basic and i try to imagine things Your vision sounds really logical, imma try it out and let you know if it works with me
I don't usually bend the pitch of my bass at all in order to match that of the sample. I think the main reason why my basslines hit the pitch of the sample so well is because they are well confined to their own range of frequencies (pitches). In other words, the sample, synths, and most drums are in the high frequency ranges, and don't interfere with the sound of the bass, which is way down in the low frequencies. The best way to do this is to EQ heavily, and only use the frequencies you want for EACH sound. Hope this helps.
I've listened to your flips and got a question. Your bassline always hits the pitch of the sample very accurately. Do you have any technique of assigning the pitch of any instrument you use in Reason to the sample's pitch? I'm using the same DAW so I hope you can help somehow ;]
Peaceout and keep up the good work bruh!
