Nice yours is getting close!

There's this good project file of an Imperium remake I downloaded a while back... the guy didn't make that specific sound as great but I feel like a lot of the others are pretty damn close: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Nv1cWmohTw

I saw mr. Madeon himself had registered on this forum, maybe if you ask him nicely?  ::)

How do I make the lush pad sweep heard in Chicane's "Offshore"?

Would also ABSOLUTELY love how to make this, Offshore's such a gem.

How do you make the bass that starts at 0:43 in this live edit of Fresh Static Snow? I've tried multiple times to create it on my own with various plugins but I can't seem to get the sound just right. Here is a link to what I'm talking about:

Thanks everyone!
still calibrating & still figuring things out ٩(ˊᗜˋ*)و

Thanks everyone!

Here is a massive patch that sounds pretty similar to the bass I think your talking about, it's from a tutorial I can't seem to find on youtube anymore, sorry if you don't use massive but I hope it helps anyhow!

I'm interested in vocal samples that pitch up (or down) within the one sample.

A recent and extreme example is the drop on Adele - Hello (Marshmello remix).

I've been just getting into monkeying around with vocal samples and pitch, but I haven't figured out how to change the pitch within one sample Maybe he's doing it with two overlapping samples? or maybe the original sample contained the pitch change?

Thanks!

This... I've been trying to do a melody like that but the sample changes speed as i go higher in the piano and the opposite if i go lower using fl's sampler. I could use Harmor's img but i really dont want to  :-\

How could I recreate this atmospheric arp?
« Reply #37 on: January 09, 2016, 11:51:43 pm »
Anyone know how to make a similar sounding atmospheric arp to these 2 songs:

throughout the beginning of Icarus by Madeon


About 11 secounds in Infinitum by Ninth Parallel

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3M_1o0XZhU

I have tried countless methods but nothing I try sounds quite like these 2 songs.

(Note, i am not trying to rip off Ninth Parallel and Madeon, I just want to know how they did it)

Thanks!

sounds like a simple square wave patch but with added delay and a lot of reverb

Sounds like a very tinny pluck with loads of delay and reverb. I would try playing with digital/hybrid wavetables in Massive, some of them are very bright and tinny and if you play with them you should be able to find a similar timbre, add a short decay and a pitch envelope to help give it a sharper click, and then soak it in reverb

This new Skrillex "Make A Move" remix just blow my mind, any ideas how main synth was made? (https://youtu.be/aAv8AtxuF8s?t=63)

Probably FM the squary wavetable, i think the key is on post processing. Maybe Serum Reverb filter, or some flangers and phasers. What you guys think?

I'm looking for a way to make this bass pluck: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMPRRfPI-Z4 (starts around 1:30).
I've tried so much, but i still don't get anywhere near this sound... It's probably something simple, but i just can't find it.

I love that song!
Have a square wave with some distortion and add an envelop on a lowpass filter cutoff so that it snaps down once the note is triggered (have the cutoff start in the mid/hi frequency range). That will give that sharp, plucky character. Play around with the filter cutoff to taste and you can add more processing. I know that isn't very specific, but that should get you into that future bass pluck sound area.

Anyone know how to get that high frequency screechy sound used by MUST DIE! Often?


Also I want to know people's thoughts on how the Main Vocaley bass sound in the drops of SMASH! By Barely Alive & Twine were made ?


Thanks!

Lots of different ways to make the screechy sound; Generally is made by having two sine waves, one a few octaves +/- semitones higher than the other with some distortion and processing to taste. For extra fun and terror squad type sounds, have the higher sine wave FM the lower one and turn the higher sine wave's volume all the way down.
Not sure on the SMASH situation. Most likely a voweley waveform with some vocoding and formant filter automation.

Particularly this ''bass-house'' isn't my vibe but as a garage-head I really want to understand this bass sound, I'm pretty sure that is not so complex, but my attempts don't sound clear like this one, to me this bass sounds like some square waves with some distortion in an envelope, and of course compression and a 4x4 sidechain, some ideas my friends?
https://youtu.be/WPE5fWluCm0?t=35s  (0:44)


Ps* I have only a serum, sylenth1 and massive copy but should be enough.

Actually, it could be made with FM. I'd recommend experimenting with a combination of a high sine wave with the volume all the way down FMing a sine wave with an envelop increasing the FM amount from zero on each hit. Then distortion and processing to taste.
