The "How'd They Make That Sound" Thread

This is a thread for getting down to the bottom of a sound's processing, uh, process.

I have two that have alluded me. The first, is a drum sound that I hear from time-to-time that I really like. It's some kind of combination of reverb, bpm delay, or a tube effect:

THe second is a bit less direct so specific that I might have a hard time explaining it. the tones Astrix gets..the tone reminds me a rubber room padded with speaker tweeters. It can be heard pretty much all over the 26 min mark. The soft percussive tones he gets--kinda blurs the lines between bass and drums. It's pure ear candy.

The 35 minute mark has a great example of the tones I am referring too as well.

I would love to see if any of you are trying to figure out an effect or sound too and maybe learn a thing or two from those of you that know what the hell you are doing.

  • Cool thread!

    I think ‘Shaper’ may help with that first drum loop.

    Great little app, unless you want to use it with Auria Pro. It hangs AP. Devs don’t reply to e-mail, and don’t seem inclined to issue a fix. Works great with Cubasis and AUM, though.

    What do you think the synth is that Luke Slater uses on this track as the filtered lead? I love it when he bends it in a 5:48.
    Listen to the whole track though. It’s a classic builder.

    That one's simple. A drum loop sent through a short delay with high feedback.
    Or the way AudioGus did it ;)

    That's the more tricky one. My first attempt would be playing around with a simple 2-OP FM synth and put it through a bit reducer and a stereo X-delay.

    My way is more fun because you get to buy a new app. :)

  • the Astrix stuff has this 1st class Psytrance sound from Israel - a high benchmark.
    It's not just the method but also the quality of tools.

  • awesome. thanks for the feedback. that astrix stuff is ear candy central. amazingly easy on the ears
