Sound Design Tutorial: Layering Drums – Native Instruments Battery 4 w/ Evan Sutton

June 21, 2013 Ace Healey 0

In this tutorial, Dubspot Sound Design instructor and course designer Evan Sutton (aka Astrolith) shows how to layer drum sounds using Native Instruments' Battery 4.

Layering is the spice of life. There are many reasons to layer drum sounds. We can add rhythmic complexity to a sound, which can lend to the groove and improve its overall musicality. Another advantage of layering certain types of drum sounds is that it can help the sound to cut through a mix, such as in the case of an 808 kick drum. These techniques can greatly improve the sound of your drum tracks way before you get to the mixing stage. – Evan Sutton

Sound Design Tutorial: Creating Funky Lead Sound w/ Native Instruments Monark Software Synthesizer

June 11, 2013 Ace Healey 0

More info: http://bit.ly/14uLcvG
In this tutorial, Dubspot sound design instructor and course designer Evan Sutton (aka Astrolith) demonstrates how to make funky lead sounds using Native Instruments' newest software synthesizer, Monark, which is modeled after the iconic the Minimoog monophonic analog synthesizer.

Native Instruments is well known for making some of the best soft synths around, and the company has had a hand in defining the sound of digital synthesis. They are not strangers to the analog modeling world, however (remember Pro-53?), and are jumping back in head first with their newest offering, Monark. In this tutorial, I will show you some techniques for creating a buttery, funky lead sound using Monark. This is a straight forward synthesizer, so we'll keep it simple with just the right amount of glide, vibrato, and feedback. – Evan Sutton

‘The Tempest’ Innovative Analog Drum Machine / Synth from Dave Smith + Roger Linn

May 1, 2013 Ace Healey 0

More info: http://bit.ly/ZmGXxc

In this video, electronic musician and Dubspot instructor James Bernard takes a deeper look at the Tempest, an innovative analog drum machine and synthesizer from electronic musical instruments design giants Dave Smith Instruments and Roger Linn Design.

He first breaks down the drum machine and explains how it lets you create and manipulate beats and sounds in real time, demonstrating various ways you can utilize the well-thought-out pad bank for a dynamic live performance: the Tempest has sixteen pressure- and velocity-sensitive pads to which you can assign thirty-two unique drum sounds with different settings for each.

Bernard also explains the synthesis aspect and showcases some of the rich sounds you'll find in the Tempest, essentially a six-voice analog synthesizer with four oscillators per voice, as well as many original effects devices. The Tempest is not your average drum machine or synthesizer: whether in the studio or in a live performance environment, the sonic possibilities with this machine are boundless.

Sound Design Tutorial: Create Dutch-Style Synth Leads w/ Absynth (Native Instruments)

April 23, 2013 Ace Healey 0

In this tutorial, Dubspot sound design instructor and course designer Evan Sutton (aka Astrolith) shows how to create Dutch-style synth sounds with Native Instruments Absynth. Dutch-style synth leads are useful for many different types of music aside from dutch house.

The characteristics of a Dutch-style synth sound are useful for many different types of music aside from dutch house. These days, we're hearing these sounds in many far reaching styles of electronic music. There are a handful of specific techniques that will help you get your foot in the door with a sound like this. The fun part is building new and unique textures around these parameters. The key here is to create a rubbery, smooth sound using lots of glide and a long release on the amplitude envelope. Then, to maintain the groove and accentuate the rhythm, we'll explore different ways to add emphasis to each note played. – Evan Sutton
