Groove3 Developing Synth Sounds Explained TUTORIAL
Synthesizer pro Thomas Cochran delivers in-depth synth sound design video tutorials! See how to make and develop a wide variety of popular synth sounds, including techniques that you can use to enhance and improve any type of sound. These videos are for those who already have an understanding of how synths work and the terminology used for identifying their features and functions. Finished presets are also included!
These synth sound design videos are shown using Xfer Serum, arguably one of the most popular virtual synth instruments available today, but the info can be applied to any virtual or hardware synth. Thomas also uses some 3rd party effects including the free Tal Chorus LX and OTT compressor, as well as “paid for” Native Instruments Transient Master and Fab Filter Saturn. These are used to “finish” the sounds, but you can use any chorus, compressor, transient or saturation plug-in to get similar results.
Thomas begins by welcoming you and goes over what the video tutorials will cover, and then starts with the bottom end, showing you how to setup and build punch basses, FM basses and 808 bass patches from scratch, and then uses different techniques to develop them further, such as adding filters, volume and pitch modulation, compression, effects and more.
Throughout the rest of the videos you’ll see similar techniques shown to craft and improve lead and arpeggiated synths, synth keys and pads, and even how to synthesize kicks and snares from scratch using your synth.
