How can i get this buildup sound?

Post by ACSLATER92 » Sun May 09, 2010 6:39 pm

okay so ive been trying to achieve a sort of club frequency huge buildup sound but i cant seem to figure out which effects to use.

like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdr3GCB34mw

listen from about 1:00-1:30

what effects in live would i need to use to get that kinda sound on my synths?

1 synth does a pitch slide downwards(low)
the other (harsh one) does a rising pitch thing at x8 of the 1st synth glide time...
as for fx I can hear phasers and exciters,compressors and gates...oh and a reverb

its not that i want replicate the exact sound but just get something similar in terms of a hard buildup

could you possible suggest what effects from ableton id have to put on my synths to get that sound?

the reverb i could easily figure out on my own but its just, i can never get a really good frequency buildup, any suggestions?

well there's the low phased bass ('phaser')
and then there's the high and harsh bit (try 'erosion')
there's also some gating going on ('gate')
