Laurence Holcombe is back and this time breaks down the incredible virtual synth Spire by Reveal Sound from beginning to end. This synth is truly amazing sounding and disproves any ideas that software synths don't have the "big, fat sound" that hardware synths do. Follow along with Larry and see and hear for yourself!
Laurence begins with a detailed introduction to the powerhouse synth and its GUI, followed by how to Choose and Save Presets and Banks. Next, you'll learn all about Spire's Oscillators, Unison and Play Modes, The Filters (including how to make a 303 type sound) and more.
The FX section is up next and Larry covers everything including the Shaper, Phaser, Vowel Filter, Chorus, Flanger, Delay and Reverb. Moving on, the Master Out Section is revealed where you can tame your signal using Multi-Band Compression and High and Low Pass Filer EQs. Envelopes and LFOs are then shown followed by The Stepper which allows you to create intricate patterns and sound design.
The Modulation Matrix is then explained which allows you to set parameters to control and effect or parameters for endless sonic sculpting. Larry now introduces you to the awesome Arpeggiator and finally wraps up the series with 5 separate videos on designing Percussive Hits & Plucks, Basses, Pads and Dubby Chords, Leads, Drums & FX!
