Hey, could anyone give me any advice on how to get the following type of sound.

the lead synth that comes in around 15 seconds in



All in LFO's, here the fluctuation on the bottom part?
A filter going up then back down.

Prolly same for the higher one but with portamento.

Just because we know our way around a synth doesnt mean we know how they did it!

Because alot of things are in effects , compressors aswell.

alot of synth noises come by accident tbh.

Does Portamento mean like a slide of pitch between notes?

yup, just play around with any synth, they will normally have it to see the desired effect.

Ah, thank you Cacophony.

Also, I was working on making a mix in Ableton but the warping is screwy on some of my tracks, is anyone familiar with the warping in Ableton 8 who can give me some tips on warping my tracks?

some of my main problems are...

it gets the beats off slightly.

It tries to quantize things that don't need to be quantized like, breakdowns that change tempo.

Too many artefacts.

delete all the markers... find first beat... warp from here straight... then choose where to lay down the markers... make sure you are in complex hi q mode

this wont work for all tracks. sometimes you'll have to go to the 8th, 32nd, 64th bar and so on to adjust. plus you're gonna wanna look at the breakdowns and drops. some tracks are such a bitch to warp...

it'll work for most electronic tracks... for other techniques use this guide... it was written for the ableton 7 warp engine but all the principles still apply...

Thanks for the guide, I'm looking it over as I warp.
What I've done right now is I have a track with a pretty straight beat all the way through ("Rock The" by Bobmo), and then I have a 4/4 kick drum going in Impulse.

When it goes off beat I zoom in and change it then listen some more until it goes off beat again.

right yeah that will work... there are so many ways to go about it, each works best for different types of songs

for electro i find fist beat, warp straight, then find last beat and adjust and it usually warps it perfect...

for older disco/live music i make a loop and warp to the loop usually 4 or 8 bars... takes longer but makes it perfect...

sometimes i warp first couple beats then warp bpm from here option works...

once you do it enough you'll just be able to recognize what you need to do

Yeah, When I was first looking at it I felt overwhelmed with the fact that I'd have to warp a whole library of songs, but it seems like there's a system to it.

Any reccomendations for a decent external soundcard that's low priced.

i. e. $100 or less.

I'm considering getting that Native Instruments Audio 2 when I can afford it, but I wanted to know if there's anything cheaper that will suffice.
