    Creative White Noise Pt. 2

    Riser and transitions aren't the only cool thing white noise can do, let's see what happens when we layer it on a vocal or drum hits.

    Smoothing Highs with Chorus Pt. 1

    Chorus belongs to the modulation family of effects, but its uses extend beyond jet engine swirls or shimmering sweeps. Here, we highlight how slight use of chorusing can smooth out brash highs on tones, loops, and samples.

    Smoothing Highs with Chorus Pt. 2

    Now let's explore smoothing out different hits and tones with chorusing and talk a little philosophy about ear training to recognize harsh tones.
