Messing around with some synths and effects after listening to Deepchord’s Liumin.

Ambient dub tech track using Native Instruments Massive & Pro 53 for synths and Audio Damage dub delay and Sonalkisis filter, EQ and compressor.

Un-mastered or mixed – just messing about…

I’m using synth patches from the waveforms and dub tech packs

    why did you choose these FX plugins? I'm interested in your audio damage choice.

    Hey Pluton,

    The Sonalksis ones i always use for EQ and Compressor and i love the TBK filter also.
    Massive because i use it pretty much exlusivley with my music – and pro 53… i rarely use it but i found a very nice organ sound i played with (It's the synth with the long attack that plays in the background).

    AD Dub delay – i just love that plug in, i i use it all the time and find it very versatile.

    Also can get some very nice nice feedback effects with it. I prefer it over Live's delay… and the one in Massive just can't do what i want with it – i usually set up 3 or 4 of them as send tracks with different delay times, and send them to each other in varying amounts. Then record in the tweaks live – copy and past the automation of the good bits and dump the rest.

    When i'm done i also like to export as WAV and bring back in 3 or 4 copies of the track, then i will bandpass some of them (mostly around the highs) and add some light flanger and panning or in this case some 1/1 delays. This gives a nice airiness and atmoshpere i can't seem to create otherwise – almost liquid effect to the white noise.

    Thanks! nice work!

    • pluton

      and also, did you try Ricochet from AD as well? for delays

  • breakitdown

    Pluton – i haven't actually… nope!

    I'll have a look… i actually bought the dub delay years ago and have been happy with it ever synth so never really looked for a replacement!

    Thanks for the tip.
