In this video, Larry welcomes you along with a brief overview of what?s to be covered. In this video series.
Larry demonstrates how to use the Devil-Loc and Decapitator plug-ins to bring life to a mix, allowing you to create space in the low mids by pushing things up in the speaker. See how to use the Tone Controls on Decapitator in parallel to create pockets of frequency density.
See how to use Decapitator and Radiator to increase RMS and perceived volume, while simultaneously decreasing peak levels on a dance track. This is audio wizardry courtesy of the wonderful process of saturation!
Discover how to use Echoboy to add a nice slap delay effect to a vocal. We then continue to use Crystallizer as a lovely vocal doubler, adding depth and stereo width to the vocal, as well as use Microshift to add a chorus effect to a guitar.
In this video, we start off using Echoboy Jr. and Little Plate to create a nice plate reverb with pre-delay for our Tech House clap, and then get freaky by adding 2 Little Alter Boys and a Little Microshift to manipulate our vocal sample. Finally, we utilize Primal Tap to create stereo delays and a chorused guitar effect.
Explore how to get creative with Tremolator, creating cool guitar tremolo effects and a ?Trancegate? style effect with the rhythmic editor. We then go on to apply Panman to add movement to our FX loop, and program a rhythmic pan loop using Rhythm Step. Finally we use Rhythm Step to rhythmically alter our pan position.
In this video, see how to use FilterFreak to add classic high pass and low pass sweeps to a Disco House track. We then use FilterFreak?s analogue modes to add grit and fatness to a drum bus. Our Disco House track then receives some envelope following filter modulation to add lots of funky movement toit. We also try the rhythm editor to create extra interest in our Tech House track, and finally, enhance a snare in the rock track using FilterFreak 2.
Explore phasing some 909 hats and a vocal FX loop to add movement. We then apply PhaseMistress on our chords, and finally add PhaseMistress to our reverb returns of our clap sound.
In the second video on PhaseMIstress, we take our rock track and phase out the washy guitar pad, and then add a rhythmic phased sound to the slide guitar. Next, we use PhaseMistress to phase our whole track, creating cool sections and adding excitement.
In this video, we use Filter Freak, PhaseMIstress and Crystallizer?s dynamic threshold controls to dynamically effect our audio, adding that all important groove and rhythmic interest.
See how to turn an acoustic guitar part into a washed out blissful soundscape using an effects rack consisting of Crystallizer, Echoboy and Microshift. We then completely mess up our Tech House track with Primal Tap, creating some mad stutter edit effects.
In this final video, we create an evolving filter delay effect which sounds amazing as a special effect, using Echoboy, FilterFreak, and Decapitor.
