Tutorial 34

PAD SOUND

Today's tut, is a special one.
We will make,.........a cool sounding Pad sound. 8-)
Using, Synth 1 vst.


First off, Bring Synth 1 Vst into Lmms. :D

1) Open a good old default initial sound bank. :)

-----------------------------------------------------------

2) For this example, we will select the Saw symbol, for Osc 1 and Osc 2.
Image
(Or, if you want, put Osc 2, on another, symbol.)
But for this tut, we're using the saw wave, for this specific sound.

-----------------------------------------------------------

3) Now look for the det dial, which is located near to Osc 1.
And turn that dial to 17 or a bit more, if you want.
Image

Det stands for Detune, in case anyone one wanted to know.

-----------------------------------------------------------

4) Leave Mix and the others, on their default positions seen in the pic.

-----------------------------------------------------------

5) In the good ol' Amplifier section.
Image

A = 74 or slighty less, if you want.
D = 0
S = 124
R = 82

Things to note: Turning the A dial, to a number way less than 64, means,
that the sound will start sooner, or instantly, and less airy.

Turning the dial slightly higher, or higher than 64, means the sound will take
longer to build up. And will sound more airy and light.

For those who want to know, what the letters mean:

A means Attack
D means Decay
S means Sustain
R means Release

----------------------------------------------------------

6) In the Filter section.
Image

frq = 81

res = 14

sat = 43 or slightly more.

And make sure Vel is on. If the dot, above the word Vel, is Green, that means
it is on.

----------------------------------------------------------

7) LP 24 is where we want it. :D
Image

----------------------------------------------------------

8 ) In the Unison section.
Image
Press the Unison button to turn it on. Green means it is on.
And turn the Pitch dial to 7.

----------------------------------------------------------

9) Go to the num section.
Image
Leave it on 2.
Or, press the top grey square button and raise to 3.

---------------------------------------------------------

10) In the Tempo Delay section.
Image

We turn the dials.....

fdbk = Turn this up a bit, if you want, but not too much.

d/w= This dial does magical wonders. Turn this up slightly more, if you want. 8-)
----------------------------------------------------------

And that's it. :D

This tut will be updated soon, and more info, will be added to it.

So enjoy playing around with the pad sounds. And Happy Padding. Lol! 8-) :mrgreen:

Nice work! Perhaps you could also explain what the various components actually DO, and why you move a certain dial?
That way you would also tell HOW to fish :p
