i also think there is no need in limiting ourselfs people don't care if you Use  Renoise of Ableton as long as the music its cool !!!

 

i was watching a video yesterday about Richard Devine's studio tour with Future music !! im not comparing myself to him but ..this ways uses  an studio that costs thousands of dollars to make music that can be done with a laptop a a couple of plugins !!

 

so if anyone is serious about their goals in music ...its ok to spend some money on a few vst's just to  get the job done ..faster :)

I was more talking about not using plugins within renoise...
not about whatever DAW you use :)
But hey, I'm a stubborn conservative linux user. so maybe its just because i can not use all these fancy plugins ;-)

Not a member of YouTube so can't subscribe, but you make a fine tutorial bro!
That was a great sound design and track-building tutorial with a great-sounding result :walkman:

@Land of Bits Thanks for that! One question: The kick that you added in your pluck synth was just to add a bit more attack at the beginng, right? So it's not related to the signal follower.

thanks bro :)

 

well no the kick sound was just to use it as a trigger signal inside the instrument ..you can route the different samples to different chains and at the end of the Fx chain there is a utility volume fader that can set to -inf volume

so the signal follower can receive the sounds but  it doesn't conflict with the actual sound that we are creating

 

 

in this case i was using it to use it as a one shot kind of envelope to trigger the filters ..since there are no envelope meta devices that you can use in the fx tab

 

that's a good solution that we can use ..if you don't want to automate everything by hand

 

 

 

note: it doesn't have to be a kick you can use whatever you want ..assign it to a modulation set ...and then shape the volume with an envelope ..you can even randomize ..this envelope so you get

diff modulations since we are affecting the source trigger !!!

 

a pretty cool way to create pads and other more complicated sounds !
