Probably my favourite artist at the moment remixes madeons epic new tune finale check it out:
Now i was half way through a tutorial on the way i mix down tracks in logic but i recently found a great tutorial describing everything 20 times better than how i describe stuff so just follow the link below and check it out it is brilliantly descriptive. Enjoy.
Sorry i have been so bad at updating recently so heres a breif very basic stuff to do with the Native Instruments massive synth and white noise.White noise can make a drop in your track sound really big! and most people use it in their tracks especially if your going for the dance music route. you can use it for build up sounds as well but i generally just use samples for build up ‘swooshes’. so yea how to make a cool sounding white noise is very simple just check the picture and steps below here:
So as you can see here all the oscillators are turned off. you can turn them off by clicking on where the red arrows are pointing.
Now this is what the white noise oscillator looks like in massive turn both colour and amp to full (unless you don’t want to in which case don’t. and send it to filter one.
This is the filter which also has to be pushed up by the right slider up to filter one. the cutoff has a yellow line round it this is a macro, if you want to use it as a build up ‘swoosh’ although you can just use the automation of the cutoff anyway so you probably wont need it. In the drop you will want the cutoff knob to be turned all the way to the right so you can feel the full force of it! but if its a build up you will want it to go from left to right slowly.
This is the settings i used for the envelope but you can play around with everything so it suits your needs! i think the release is the most important thing on this but i wouldn’t give it too much.
I always put a small reverb and chorus mono on it just to make it seem a little creamy and nicer to listen to. again fiddle with the settings to suit your needs.
This should be a nice sounding white noise now. However the most important thing about white noise is to put a high pass filter on it. This is essential when you mix down the song so it doesn’t clutter all the high end frequencies in your mix.
So yea as per usual if you think theres a better way then tell me i’m still learning and would welcome feedback!
A friend of mine on my course did these remixes from all in game material and explains exactly how he did them! check these out:
still stay tuned working on a tutorial on mixing songs down!
HEY guys! this is my new EP coming out soon please share and comment! Hope you enjoy the previews! :p
Ps. next post will be on mixing down! 🙂 stay tuned!
OK ill show you now how to do a wobble bass in the most simple form on a VST called massive. Check the picture below:
NOW The ‘Pink’ Section is called the oscillator. this is essentially what sound it is going to make Such as: Saw wave or smooth square etc. This has been taken down to -12 which means it is an octave below middle C. There is a fader on the right of the box this is the option of routing the sound to a filter (In this case it is all the way up to filter 1)
THE FILTER: (outlined in Turquoise) This is basically the controlling section of the noise. so the Cutoff is how much of the sound you want to pass through. The resonance basically just amplifies the sound. In this case we have a low pass filter selected (You can select which one you want by clicking on the drop down menu at the top of the box) Again you’ll see the fader at the side which means you can route it to another filter again but for this exercise we haven’t so we put it up to just allow it through filter one. You’ll notice on the cutoff that there is a green number at the bottom of the cutoff knob this is how we have Routed The LFO. (you do this by clicking where the red arrow is pointing and dragging it to the box where the green number is in).
THE LFO: Is a Low Frequency Oscillator, This modulates the audio signals coming through and it is a pulsing rythym unlike the ocsillator which is just an audible tone. You’ll notice that on the left side is a fraction that says 1/16 now this is how you can changes the speed of the pulsating rythym (Wobble). You change it by dragging the box where the ’16’ is up and down till you gain the rythym that you require. When you drag the cross section to the filter you drag the green number up and down to gain a line around the knob, this is basically controlling the LFO within the filter.
Now you should have a Wobble Bass line happening. If not please don’t hesitate to ask questions.
