hahah! i'd like that. except i'll give my shit away for free.

i'm uploading three new videos on mastering right now. one on how to utilize a spectrum analyzer on your master and the other two on general tips/tricks/ideas when mastering. might take another hour or so to be up.. HD is slow.

the plugin is called "spectrum" and the preset is called "master", so you gotta click that little triangle. i always put it on my master.. great preset/plugin. it's only in live 7 and 8 but i doubt you have 6, that's pretty old.

wow, thanks guys. that's SUPER rad of you. i wasn't sure if they'd be that useful or not at first so i'm really glad to hear they are. not sure what i'll tackle next... maybe synth tricks?

Definately synth tricks! your mastering tricks were well informative... especially the compression breakdown.

For me something about the tuning (or detuning) of synths and how to combine oscillators to get a certain sound... or even automating to create a sound would definately help.

Definately keen to watch more. good work.

dude im super jealous slyman. that thing is badass. i dunno if sampling its sounds would be worth it though, the real joy in something like that is writing with it.. soooo much fun.

i put up two new youtube videos for whoevers interested. talking about some synth tips... next time i'll get more into the processing/mixing/tricks stuff, promise.

Sample the sounds, then sell it back on ebay for more. Then use the extra cash to buy yourself a vst or two.

i've been searching the board and trying hard to sift through this thread but it's just so massive.

i'm looking at figuring out how to make these "pop" synth sounds that producers like beataucue and sound of stereo are using in songs. i don't mean pop like katy perry, i mean pop like the sound of a wet bubble popping or something.

here's an example:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVZUXdt6U9c#t=1m0s
the high notes on the last half of each bar.

here's another one:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcemqHDe4U0#t=1m0s

i'm sure its super obvious and i'm stupid lol, but someone please help! i've been trying all sorts of LFO settings like applying sine/triangle stuff to affect the notes or just affect a filter frequency but i feel like i just need proper guidance in the right direction.

Using a simple synth like sylenth1, you'd use 2 saw osc's or 1 saw and 1 square etc... pitch them up like +1 octave, detune a little for thickness...

Then map an LFO to the osc's pitch (in sylenth its Pitch A). Set the LFO amount dial counter clock wise to about 9 O clock... set the LFO gain to 100% then change the LFO rate until you get a good bubble sound... should be around 1/16 or something... just try it out...

Then you can automate the LFO rate for interest.

Hope this helps... lemme know if ya get stuck.

hmm, yeah this is similar to what i was doing. i guess it just takes a lot of messing around, eh? i've used your instructions and hammered away and made a few cool pop sounds haha, so thanks!
