169 - Electronic Noizes 1        

From: DJ PHYS-X
Email: minitomato@go.com
Date: 18-May-00


Try these for cool effects: 1) Turn your cutoff all the way down, and the resonance all the way up, then slowly fade up on the cutoff, you get this real cool airy noize I've noticed a lot of trance artists use (esp: Deepsky and Paul Van Dyk). Experiment with patches your sending through too.

2) Try putting your beats through an EQ and fading in and out w/ the low mids and highs here is my favorite combo: (Try using the three knobbed ones found on mixing boards like Mackie) high - 3/4's up mid - 1/2 up low - 3/4's up this creates a very clear effect while keeping the base nice and deep. You may also want to consider fading w/ the knobs throughout your song...

3) On synth voices that are programmed to "sweep" and the polysynth sounds (ie: sweep pad), put rez all the way up, and the cutoff near all the way down (you'll need a touch sensitive synth), keep pressing the keys at random strength. You should get a cool deep (oh yeah, use the lower notes) pulsating effects that I've heard The Crystal Method use. -DJ PHYS-X
