Tips & Techniques:Keyboards- Fatten 'em up!

Hey guys,

Many of you may use this, but I discovered it out of necessity and it works pretty well.

If you have a client playing a keyboard with no depth, character, soul, fatness or all of the above, try this out and see how it works. Snag your best DI, and have them do a solid pass using the L output of the keyboard. Then go back and have them do another solid pass with the output switched to R. Pan and drool.

Simple enough!

what means that?? i haven't understood

what gives more fatness to keyboards? the two different DI or the DI in general?

is because you use two different kind of DI and sum them gives a better result?

It is the double-tracking and panning that gives the fatness.

Another trick for making synths sound thicker and more 'real' is processing with some sort analogue outboard and pushing it to distortion. I've found re-amping keys through my API 3124 pre's and pushing them to the limit adds a real thickness and makes then sound more...better. heh
