1. Spectrasonics Trilogy
2. ReFX Vanguard
3. LinPlug Albino 3

But looking for some soft synths for house leads right now because the Vanguard and Albino are more suited for trance.

I just started using fab filter one and I'm liking it a lot! How is fab filter twin compared to one?

Hey you all, it's like my first post above... i'm new to the forum - but i look forward to exchanging tips and tricks w you guys!

Luke,
why are you so keen on the Fab Filter One synth? I've tried the Demo version out, and I like it (otherwise using Logic 7) - it's really convenient and all, but I don't see how it would stand out amongst so many others? Why i'm so interested in hearing your point of view is because I think that simplicity (=efficency) is sometimes so much better than the complex alternatives.. And I guess the FFOne is amongst the simpler synths, but I find it interesting as well. Any special sounds in your productions you can entitle the FFOne?

Cheers!

Yes, I'm totally into the easy to use synths. And the FFOne is simple,
but sounds amazing also! The whole acid build up in Housetrap is made
with the FFOne.
Also, the bassline in We Rock Da House is also FFone.

A Solid KICK?

Postby joa » Wed May 30, 2007 4:35 pm

I'm using reason3 and im having some problems making a solid kick. Ive tried eq'ing and adding a compressor(not sure how to use it though). But never got that hard thump...
so i was hoping you producers out there would share some techniques and tips with me.... :roll:

Sample a good kick. Takes too much time to try and make one
yourself. Sample a fat one and build your track on that...

Something that works well for me is this one; create a Scream4 which is linked to your Redrum. On the Scream 4 uncheck the damage option and put the volume on the Scream to the max. Your kick will be a lot louder now.. otherwise you can load 2 kicks in your redrum, and play a little with both volumes, with this way you can also create better kicks..
