Daksha, do you have a link to that Blofeld choir tutorial?
Possibly because DX's are not really known for their pads!?
Try Spectral Wave #5
Good advice, christopher27! Keytrack>Index Mod 'tables in regular WT osc mode that I found good for choir patches IMHO are: Evil, Roughage, Sniper, Adenoids, Whizzfizz, and Element 5.
I'm digging up some old posts here but thought I would try to help anyway!
Uhhh...I've been searching for 1hr and didn't find it again...as I will be home I'll see if I have something printed down.
Thanks Psylence, suggestions will be absolutely considered and as there will be a final edit you will know it
Have a good day!!
Mhhh...that track, Back Ingeneering...is reaaaaaaly bad recorded
It was my first track after a 5 years long pause, making no music...my ears had to go back into music-making, it was the first track with the Virus TI, and in the middle of the track I changed both soundcard and monitors
Yes, I created/recorded/sequenced everything into Maschine, mainly using just the controller, building the song chaining the scenes, leaving space for live tweaking/FXs/rolls and so on...nothing more.
I think the "studio version" could be quite different...well...not so different but for sure more refined and modern.
The second part of the track is really techno-trance from the 90s A bit too much
Thanks a lot guys for the suggestions, I appreciate them a lot! Music is learning
I totally agree in all points, melodies need more movement, snares are a bit dry and yes, flanges are louder than they should be.
I also add that transitions need some more tricks and complexity to be more modern and less "from the 90s"
The whole track in facts is a "Live Edit", made quickly into Maschine MK3 with the aim of being live played...it is not a "studio work", you know what I mean...
Later this year I will switch it all into Cubase where everything is less intuitive but really more comfortable for editing every single detail in melodies, sounds and transitions...and publish a real studio version of it, not just a "live edit"
Lately I found myself sketching ideas and tracks really quickly into Maschine in this way, and then refinishing them into Cubase.
Being Maschine usable as VST inside Cubase with a complete audio/midi integration, in one hour you have all the elements ready to get started
Thanks again guys, have a nice day full of good music!
I just finished a simple trance track that I made mainly with the Virus (not the drums) by multiple resampling in Maschine MK3.
Everything was composed/recorded/edited inside Maschine.
There's also some Reface DX, Blofeld, AN1x and Pulse (bass)...but main melodies are from the Virus.
Ok...the FX at 0:55 and repeated here and there is Virus. Background electronic riff at 3:27 is Virus, and the same are the lead at 3:56 and the one from 4:55 until the end
Hope you enjoy it!
I listened to all demos & even if some sounds really similar to a Virus, other sounds bring to my mind the Blofeld and Microwave XT...not a Virus clone, a great synth, but personally something I don't need right now.
No, only the other way is possible, C to TI
Same for me, a resizeable gui, nothing more, nothing less
Thanks for the feedback and a happy new year!!
So, yes, bass is an old Waldorf Pulse (not the 2) and the TB-303 is ABL3. I found this VST to be soundwise more convincing than other hardware clones around (I sold both the Aira TB-3 and TT-303 to buy this VST and I won't look back).
@psylence: the "gliding lead" is made with the Waldorf Blofed, a square and a lower saw, synched. Delay and Flange FX are added by Native Instruments Replika (lovely for psy stuff). Synch and Flange together do the magic, I suppose The short arp is the Virus, 2 squares detuned and a rate reducer
This track was originally made in 2014 by a Prog. Rock band, friends of mine...I remade it recording the guitarman and drummer again...
Many Virus sounds but also Nord Modular, AN1x, Reface DX, Blofeld, Pulse and Maschine.
Quite a long distance trip... ENJOY !
Ahahahaha no problem ! Yeah, me too I love choirs. I have just packed a pair of them for the Maschine sampler yesterday
If it turns on alone, maybe it's the case to write an email to Access support
I it does that with power cable unplugged, call the Ghostbusters
Thanks Christopher27, when I wrote that it was 2015...during these 2 years I studied Wavetable synthesis too and followed some tutorial for the Blofeld about those choirs...than I replicated something similar on the Virus! Thanks anyway
WooooooW !!! I had a 20 y/o one
Great friends to have around
Both nice, the song and the cat
- Waldorf Microwave XT
- Access Virus P0lar
- Alesis Andromeda A6
- Clavia Nord Modular G2
I think it is, but there's a workaround:
Setup a soft-knob to use a CC#, use the same CC# in Modulation Matrix as a source and your Tape Delay Feedback as its destination
Now the choosen softknob will control Tape Delay Feedback
While I never did this on the TI 'cause I always used the VC plugin for organizing patches/banks, I did this on my old Indigo2 by sending .sys dumps.
This is possible on the TI too.
Also the Virus Control Center has functionality for dumping banks if I'm not wrong...
