Digital plug-ins can't self oscillate. A lot of times, while designing one sound, you may stumble upon other interesting sounds. If it were easy more people would do it. Well what I have here are three sounds designed for use in Massive, although they will open in Kore 2 as well. It lets a specific frequency pass but stops everything above and below it. These tips are not to be taken as 100% applicable to every sound you make.
The courses range from synth specific ones such as , to more general courses such as. I have a rule for this. Not 5 synths layered together. First, it causes basses to sound sloppy, loose and thin. They are going to shape our stone sculpture. Why are you so good at training people? Remember if you open this in Kore 2, it should automatically let you use the controller to control the 8 macro controllers in Massive.
This means the modulation visual will only move in one direction, like an envelope in Massive, making setting the start and end point much easier. If you want to follow along step-by-step, you might need to have specific software installed. Tip 10: Less is more! This example is demonstrated in the video above. We trick our own brains to hear what we want to hear. I highly recommend spending a few months going through the back-end of his videos. If you are trying to make a particular sound, attempt to recreate it.
You'll be able to reverse engineer the project files and discover how to improve your own productions. Make It Sound Warm And Big Be careful to not cut too much low end out of your synths. You might want to spend a few hours on this site. Often used for wobbly filters, panning and pitch bends. Tip 4: The insert effects in Massive are all about. And not only that, but you can also manipulate the ears non-linear response to different frequencies and volumes to create an enhanced impression of loudness and punch in a mix, even when the actual listening level is low.
When one of these objects is lit up, that is where the feedback input will be sourced from. Learn the fundamentals to make this easier, and gain the depth of knowledge to make a good sound better. I found the decay parameter to work even at slightly lower settings than indicated in figure 4, though lower decay values will lead to a very percussive sound that will not sustain much. Kinda like carving a sculpture. This and the previous trick work because a key way that our ears interpret how far away we are from a sound source is by the amount of high- and low-frequency energy present relative to the broader mid-range content. As we already know 4 Env is the default amplitude envelope so make the necessary changes to that. Repeated or egregious offenses will be countered with a ban.
Basically, the muscles clam up to protect the more sensitive bits. One last question sorry for all the questions! If you believe your post or comment was removed in error, check the and include a link in a polite. It is very unique to Massive. Just because you can load as many synth plugins as you want, doesn't mean it's a good idea. Including more sound packs, you'll get a perfect start to dive deeper. So, an envelope with no attack, long decay, no sustain and very little release would be ideal.
For example, you can make that explosion appear super-loud by actually shutting down the sound artificially following the initial transient: the brain will interpret this as the ear responding naturally to an extremely loud sound — perceiving it as louder and more intense than the sound actually, physically is. I am constantly working to make my sound better, which is good since I've seen an improvement from some of the sounds I used to be making. You'll be able to reverse engineer the project files and discover how to improve your own productions. I took the time to compile a list of ten comprehensive and educational sound design resources. I am also level 1 certified in Logic. You will need a digital audio workstation for song composition so be aware of this before you purchase Massive. Again, the reason you won't hear anything when cranking up the reso on a normal digital synth is simply that it won't allow you to crank it up beyond the critical point, because self-oscillation would be catastrophic.
This area shows exactly how audio is routed through the various modules in Massive. Knowing how the hearing system interprets the sounds we make, we can creatively hijack that system by artifically recreating certain responses it has to particular audio phenomena. Step 4: Feedback One of the more unique aspects of Massive is the inclusion of a Feedback module. Are you an aspiring electronica producer? You can mimic this in plugins too. Use the subreddit search, read , or check out other subreddits such as.
His approach to ambient sound design is a joy to witness because he takes advantage of so many features and parameters, that are often times overlooked, in very unique ways. Try playing back any piece of music at a low level. So on a real digital synth you won't be able to self oscillate until you feed a small amount of noise into the filter. All postings of your own music thread or comment for any reason should go in the Feedback thread. Thank you, kind regards, Richard Click to expand. This is actually the tricky part.
You can but it will never feel as big as a lower pitch bass. Use of words, images etc. Tip 6: A good deal of synths usually have a random knob that allows you to change the phasing of the oscillators. As a bonus we recently posted links to all our subscriber-only content — 9 hours of video tutorials. The best synth sounds usually come from one synth. Let me know if they did!
