General Sounddesign Topic : Hardstyle

  • Hey there,
    i surfed a bit this forum and found a couple of threads about hardstyle related sounddesign.


    My Idea is to make a summary thread here where everyone can post his sounds / question about a sound on this Genre and we can discuss this ... so there wont be a flood of Threads only for 1 particular sound.


    I dont have any questions yet but feel free to ask me i can help a bit :)
    and ofcourse check out our soundcloud !


    greetz !

  • I agree, this is a good idea! I've been searching alot for tips and tricks regarding hardstyle leads in VIRUS TI (Since every single proffessional hardstyle producer uses either the virus C or the virus TI synthesizer).


    I would like to know tips and tricks regarding layering and modulation for a big fat hardstyle lead sound such as Audiotricz, Headhunterz, Brennan heart etc.


    Here are a few of tutorials I've come up with (although I don't find them super good, but some of them might be relative to hardstyle sounds):

  • I welcome this topic, as I'm a Hardstyle artist myself ;) (youtube.com/infl8or) Probably 90% of people visiting this forum produce Hardstyle.


    MiddleThinkr, I visited your SoundCloud and was impressed by how nice and clean your sounds are. You also got the kick right, prior to 3 months ago it wasn't good but your two recent tracks (in the recent 3 months) finally nailed it. Congrats!


    I wanted to ask you: Do you master your sounds to make them so pleasant and clean? Some kind of EQ on the leads and screeches? My sounds are dirty, for that matter all of Virus' built-in sounds also sound dirty to me.

    First off : Thanks mate ! very nice to see / hear / read that people like our style and sound :) thanks second : no i dont master our tracks and afaik only GROWL got mastered by a so called "engineer" anything else was more or less "nooby masterd" by me but i wouldnt dare to call this mastering ! and last : feel free to ask me anything regarding our sounds or any particular sound, i really like to get into sounds of professional artists and try to rebuild it ( dont ask me about the noisecontrollers - down down lead synth ... i dont even have a clue ! :D ) and heag add me in skype so we can write about all the stuff :)

  • @Erol : yes sure uff... this is a pretty decent processed sound i think i need to make somesort of video tutorial for it ... gimme a couple of days maybe we could set up something like an skype video call on the weekend ? would be a bit faster and i could record it ... something like : hardstyle producer talk ... ( thats actually a fantastic idea :D )
