Max Rehbein just might be the best thing to come out of Germany since the pretzel! Never short on amazing sounds and a willingness to share his knowledge, Max is back with another sound design tutorial. This time he’ll show you how to make an Electro Bass sound using amplitude modulation in Thor. Sound complex but it’s freakishly easy. Throw on a little distortion and you’re off to the races. We’ll let Max explain the rest but if you hear those Electro bass sounds and want to learn how to make your own, this tutorial is for you!
#6 observing how various CV source types affect oscillator pitch
Electronic music instruments rely on control voltages in some form or another. Both analog and digital systems require a means of changing pitch, timbre, loudness, and other sonic characteristics. This is achieved using control voltage, or in the case of software like Propellerhead Reason, a digital representation of control voltage.
A powerful feature of Propellerhead Reason is the implementation of signal routing in the virtual rack environment. This system includes both audio cabling and control voltage cabling. A single modulation source, such as an LFO, can control several other synths that react the instant you alter the LFO settings. This ability to have a signal from one software synthesizer control a different software synth, is an amazing feature that often goes overlooked.
For Reason users, interested in learning about control voltage routing, this on-going series will provide an introduction to the terminology and protocols in using this feature in Propellerhead Reason. The tutorials are presented as individual Reason Song Files and require various Rack Extensions that help illustrate active processes. Each lesson is embedded in the session file, so you actively experience control voltage at work, or you can quickly copy and paste patches to your own projects.
In this video, take a trip back to the origins of ‘delay’ as an effect and the technologies that led us to where we are today.
This is just the introduction to the tutorial.

Waldorf Nave has a 4 track tape recorder in which you can cut,copy,trim,move,and stretch for precise editing as well as snapping the audio file into the ruler grid for easy editing and looping.
In this tutorial Ryan Hemeon shows how you can sample any iOS app using Audiobus to record into Audioshare and open it directly into Nave to start a new patch. He also shows a little bit about setting up your own patch and saving it.
“This is a really cool way to make patches, kind of turning Nave into a “Super Sampler”. I hope this is helpful! ”

Thor sounds like no synthesizer you’ve ever heard before – and every single one of them. Where other synths use one specific form of synthesis and one single filter, the Thor polysonic synthesizer features six different oscillator types and four unique filters. Unlimited sound design potential at your fingertips.
In this micro tutorial we’ll take a look at how to maneuver this unstoppable force of synthesis and give you an overview of its main features.
Background video description from ‘acemonvw’:
Just put this up because someone (sicks) on the forum wanted a tutorial on how to route external gear through the lowpass filter on the Spectralis. I used my Virus TI as the external device (not shown) and it’s audio output was put into the spectralis’s Ext. Inputs.
Please don’t hesitate to ask me questions for clarification, this was made rather quickly.

A classic lesson from 2007, B3 expert Tony Monaco shares his tips on blues scales on the Hammond organ.
The blues scale refers to several different scales with differing numbers of pitches and related characteristics. The hexatonic, or six note, blues scale consists of the minor pentatonic scale plus the ♯4th or ♭5th degree. A major feature of the blues scale is the use of blue notes, however, since blue notes are considered alternative inflections, a blues scale may be considered to not fit the traditional definition of a scale. At its most basic, a single version of this “blues scale” is commonly used over all changes (or chords) in a twelve bar blues progression. Likewise, in contemporary jazz theory, its use is commonly based upon the key rather than the individual chord.

Live 9 201: The Simpler Sampler by Laura Escudé
Video 1 of 19 for Live 9 201: The Simpler Sampler
So what is sampling and how does Abletons Simpler sampler work? Well, let Laura Escud show you!
In this sampling-for-beginners tutorial renowned violinist and electronic music performer Laura Escud takes you through the very basics of sampling using Ableton Lives stock sampler, Simpler. She starts you off with an overview detailing the history of audio sampling from its nascent beginnings with the famous Fairlight CMI through to software samplers of the present day.
From there youre off to a zoomed-in, zoomed-out look at the Simpler Plugin that is included with every copy of Live. Laura takes you through all of Simplers parameters from envelopes to LFOs showing you how they work and how she uses them in her music. She discusses the differences between Simpler and Lives premium instrument, Sampler … and also shows you how they work together!
Finally, Laura, includes a few workshops where she divulges the arcana behind her Cello Wobble sound and how to use Simpler in an Instrument Rack. Laura then puts it all together with a triptych of videos showing how she uses Simpler in her live performances.
So if youre new to sampling and want to know how to use Simpler – or if your just want to learn some cool sample playback techniques – sample this tutorial by Laura Escud: Lives Simpler Sampler!
