Its very similar to the Lazerbass ensemble that is included with Reactor 5

But technically it was a really good tutorrial video. Think I got the whole synth just by watching it. I want to check this out.

From what I understand, the envelopes can "retrigger" as if they are a pseudo delay.

they can sell everything what is advertised with some crappy dubstep. thats the key.
+they already did it when reaktor 5.5 bundled with lazerbass - also advertised with the same wobble. these 2 synths are nearly identical.
buy it.

horrible.

actually it is far deeper than just cheezy bass wobbles. Additive is very interesting tonally. Keep in mind the other sounds and fx in the demo are still the same ensemble. Errorsmith's music is far from dubstep, so I'm sure he has designed it for more experimental use as well.

im not against this synth and i said "nearly".
i am against this advertisement these days. i mean cheap. ok advertisement always cheap in a way but...
they suggest you have to buy it because its capable of doing trendy wobbly dubstep. and yo know dubstep is the shit so you need it.
i m sure live 9 will be advertised with some wobble sound in the videos and it will include a new synth called wobble or dubstep (as usual abletons simple minded synth-titles).
guaranteed at least 10% sales up just because of this.

ok i am not roanting, there is much worse out there.
new cubase 6 promo videos. omg.
they advertise the new product with possibly the worst and most medicore pop-rock band ever played some "music" on earth.
i couldnt believe..
but im sure they know their target and these guys in their boring 40s and 50s with lots of cash gonna buy it for their hobby easily.
so as wobble guys for another software
end.

It was a terrible explanation of additive synthesis. He basically explained additive synthesis as if it were subtractive synthesis and mentioned there were a bunch of sine waves. And it super annoying. I'm not usually bothered by a persons voice in a tutorial, but I just wished he'd speak like an adult talking to another adult.

Even if you hate dubstep it's still fun to play with a proper wobble....even if through headphones so nobody knows. :)
