Vipre to Warm Up Synths/Samples?

There are certain things computers can do that you just won't find granular synthesis and crazy stuff like that.

exactly... I prefer to investigate stuff like Reaktor, Absynth, Spektral Delay, etc rather than stuff that just clones... fitting the wilder stuff into my sound is very difficult though - kind of clashes with the warmth that I like.


I am still trying to correlate gear to tone in records I hear I like that warm punchy bottom. More of the rounded thump rather then sharp pointy things. And liquidy synths.


sounds like we're on the same mission and like the same kind of sound too! I think the Dakings would make a great purchase - sensible price too. Excellent build. They have just modified the Mic-Pre to include an extra freg in each band I believe... I like them cos its hard to go wrong... give me a parametric and ooopss! Hardest choice is whether to get them vertical or horizontal ;-)

My hottest tip for liquidy synths would be to investigate a Synthesis Technology MOTM modular system. The 440 LPF is the warmest I've ever heard and I've tried a lot! Much better than the sought-after Mutator IMO (long waiting list though :-( )

BTW thanks for all the gear porn with the hammerfall Nathan. Great bathroom reading material.
ooooh yeah...I just found the December 2002 issue of Mix unread in the filing cabinet. Sheer delight, mostly because if I leave the industry mags in the bathroom too long I have to watch out. The freelance producers will make the pages stick together.

Ok a few people asked me for the link to my house music producer friend.

Here it is:

You'll need flash and hi bandwidth.

Listen to the mix for "Automatic Lover" and a few others. He didn't work on all of them, but I know that all of the stuff on the site was done exclusively in DAW.
