Using Absynth to Morph Sound Waves
In this video tutorial sound design course designer/instructor Evan Sutton, explores the sonic capabilities of “morphing waves” in Native Instruments’ Absynth software.
“Evan Sutton is one of Dubspot’s esteemed instructors by day and a sonic alchemist by night with his Astrolith (Space is the Place) music project which employs wobbling, funky bass lines under pitch-modulated vocals and synths. In this new video, Sutton shares his creative process of “adding a counterpoint” to his signature wobble using Native Instruments’ Absynth instrument. “At the core of this sound is the morphing wave. This is a really cool feature that Absynth has, and one of the only places where additive synthesis is used in Native Instruments’ Komplete (aside from Reaktor library instruments),” explains Sutton. In this tutorial he uses Logic as a DAW, but also explains that the process for using Absynth is exactly the same if you use Ableton or another DAW.”
