Sonic Charge: Echobode – 36 Free Patches

May 12th, 2013

Echobode_36_PatchPackIcon
Finally some news from me! I give you a little 36 patches pack for the Sonic Charge Echobode owner. This kind of effect is sometimes unpredictable on some material. So I have created these patches using a simple sine wave as source of sound. Going this way you can get a good idea on the harmonic content added by this device. I should say that you can obtain really awesome sound transformation on simple sine. If you want to get a great idea on the original patch sound, then use a sine wave but you can put in whatever you want, it’s all up to you. I’ve just enhanced your range of Echobode tones. You will also find one combinator I have designed for bass sounds, which should works fine on leads too. Read the rest of this entry »

Analog sound in digital world – Part 1: Noise

March 19th, 2013

There are several reasons why people naturally tend to prefer sound coming out from analog gear. Getting into analog hardware is quite expensive and most people doing music out there are running on a low budget. But this isn’t something that can stop you to sound more analog. “Analog sound in digital world” is a series of tutorial I will write over time giving you different ways on how you can get that warmth into your mix. I really hope that you will have fun  and also get satisfaction from these tutorials.

Refill: Thor FM first series

March 1st, 2013

THOR_FM_FirstSeries_Refill_Icon

Since the release of the PX7 FM Synthesizer in the Propellerhead Shop, I got the idea to create a refill for doing complex FM synthesis with Thor synthesizer. Maybe, you don’t know how to create FM algorithms? Maybe you are still using Reason 5 and don’t have access to REs? Or you just don’t want to pay 99$ for the PX7 FM Synthesizer ? No matter what is your situation, this free refill is a first attempt for me to create a FM synthesis refill using the Thor synthesizer. In this pack, you will find 102 patches divided into 4 algorithms of 4 operators. If you want to design your own sound from scratch using a starting point use patches named: Algo A Init, Algo B Init, Algo C Init and Algo D Init. I have also included into each patch a combinator backdrop showing the oscillator algorithm (routing).

10 tips for better EQ

#1.: CUTS AND BOOSTS:

Avoid exaggerated cuts and boosts unless they’re absolutely necessary. Doing this can cause you headache and damage your overall mix. Most of the time an adjustement of just a few dB (1dB or 2dB) is enough. When cutting try with a narrow Q and when boosting a wider Q.
