white noise effect in Minimal

Post by Pantytec » Sun Apr 15, 2007 12:58 am

I'm starting to hear more and more of this effect. And i'm not sure how they are doing it. I can do it with my Vermona drumrack, but not in Ableton.
Maybe they are doing it with Battery?

It's just a dowse of white noise in a snare or high hat, and it it builds and increases before a breakdown. shhhhhhh sshhhh shhhHHHHH SHSHHHHH!
And stops. And then continues on with a nother 8 bars, and then again. It's not a new effect I know, but it's sick enough to grab my attention. Like I said, it's in mostly highhats.

What did I miss?

You need a synth with noise generator.

With reason:

Add a subtractor synth
Low pass and open the cut off
Active the noise and put the LEVEL of them at 100%
Now put the knob NOISE at 75%.


To make Sh sh sh sh sh sh sh.... Add a delay machine.

(Sorry my english)

bingo-

use pure white noise with a sharp attack, then jack with the decay and volume. if you want a more conventional sound, layer the white noise (smoothly) with a high hat sound, then adjust the decay on the white noise only.

Microtonic is fantastic for those sounds. Automating the decay and noise on some of the hi hat type sounds works really well.
