This is gonna sound odd... but does anybody have any tips of creating WTF? sounds... or sample packs that have a few good ones.

By WTF sounds i mean those sounds that you cant place or describe as a "saw" or "square"... like the hook at the end of each bar in TWR's track schizophrenia or like that weird vocal hook in Towel swinger or those "dieing dinosaur" sounds in the intro of fake bloods mars... those types of sounds.

Any tips.... modulation settings to effects chains to resampling processes... would be awesome.


Definitely try some vocoding. People underestimate what a vocoder can do and what it does. Check out this monster voice youtube clip of taking a dog sound source and mixing it with vocals.

You can use any sound for the main source and any sound to manipulate it.

Also try using synths like Camel Alchemy (also in that guy's same youtube channel) that allows you manipulate sounds. That guy's channel gives you a variety of different ways to get weird sounds.

Once you get some type of weird sound you could also bump the audio and then redo the same process over again.

I can't achieve the exact reverb I want in my track. The reverb itself is decent, but it heavily distorts the entire track... Recommendations?

Rad! thats exactly the kind of guidance i was after.

Interesting sound design is definitely one way to separate your sound from the herd...

ive tried the sugar bytes vocoder and the orange vocoder... wasnt a fan of either... any recommendations for a good one?

don't directly drop it as an insert, make an auxilary stereo track drop the reverb there and route signals to the aux channels you have more independence and automation control

Anyone have any tips for reducing latency in ableton? I'm running it on windows 7...


(p.s. I already tried reducing the buffer size as much as possible, but i still have like 13ms of latency so i want to try to see if i can reduce that a bit further)

If you latency is as low as it can go with buffer size then it depends on your audio card.

Dont be too worried about it. PCI firewire is fine. If you hear anyone getting technical about which company makes the best firewire and what not then youre getting too into technical aspects that really dont matter.

it also helps a ton if you put an EQ on the aux youre running the reverb on. i'll usually cut out some of the highs to avoid over saturation.

hey guys, i started a youtube channel to teach and talk about production. right now i have a couple videos of me showing some drum loop tricks and mixing tricks, but there'll be more in the future.

if anyone has anything good to add you should start your own too. it would be cool to share ideas this way... way better than typing in a forum at least
