How to sound like ? thread


#122

I never really make that type of stuff, and when I do I’m happy using a step sequencer, just would’ve liked a video.


#123

I cant see it but I’d like to …hahahah

thundercat seems destined to make something new new imo

For the Khan rim shot

it’s better to make those sounds from processing and EQ’ing rather that spending all your life looking for the source sound thats closest to it. If youve got a few basic rim shot sounds in your sample packs then try a few of them out and EQ them. From what I can make out it feels as though the top end is cut a bit, and its really boosted around 800-1000hz, those mids that arent quite high enough to be sharp, theyre meatier.
ive tried to replicate it too and a combination of really subtle close room reverb and a panned slapback delay, proper short delay time.
just saying, my advice is dont be too set on your source sample being the finished article, experiment with processing and EQing

This reminded me of something. Couldn’t figure out what until now:

Also,

No wonder Mala liked it?

If someone knows how I’d like to know how this synth is done. Not the whole bullshit but the synth at 4’55:


#128

it sounds like a distorted to fuck flute or something


#129

Yep! Distorted and polyphonic… portamento… flute sound?


#130

sounds like it has some flutey/woodwindy characteristics, it’s hard to tell with all the distortion. I also think it’s just 2 x monophonic parts, rather than 1 x polyphonic part


#131

Yes, 2 mono… can I imitated this kind of flute sound with Massive or any synth?


#132

yeah just crank the distortion up, you could probably make a simple sine wave sound like that with enough distortion. Just try different waveforms in massive with the distortion until you get something similar.


#133

knocked up a simple single sine osc patch in massive with lfo on the amp, sounds quite similar…a starting point anyway

[quote=“Samuel_L_Damnson, post:57, topic:262, full:true”]Idk I find it hard to be sure of phase issues in reason. I have to use the tape mode on scream distortion to flip the phase

One of the reasons why I left Reason.


#135

Well idk I can obviously flip the samples phase in audacity so its no issue


#136

:hand: phase


#137

Here you go :slight_smile: Forgot to add that I have an envelope with a quick decay controlling the pitch, just to get a transient that pops through a bit better, but it doesn’t make a world of difference :smile:


#138

True. It’s just harder to quickly A/B that way.


#139

It is lol


#140

“chainsaw bass”
