Making an Absynth Retro Sci-Fi FX
Sounds like this Absynth retro Sci-fi FX are making a huge comeback. Whether you produce audio for a currently popular music genre, score for film and television or even design sounds to be used in video games, this is one of those lessons that can provide inspiration and a little technical help as well. Absynth is an incredibly deep and complex synth, but you can do a lot with just the basic features. This tutorial breaks down a sound that seems quite complex when played back, but really it only takes a few minutes to create! Let’s see what it takes to make it all come together.
This Absynth retro Sci-fi FX only requires one oscillatore module, which is set to run in FM mode with an Organ 4 waveform loaded into it. This is then run through a Lowpass 4 Pole filter, which is then modulated by an LFO. This same LFO is set up to modulate the main pitch of the oscillator, as well. After this si all set up, the sound is then routed through a Ringmod effect, which is modulated by a custom envelope. This envelope, as well as the Main Amp Envelope, is modulated by an LFO to provide the retro awesomeness (downriser/upriser movement) that defines this sound.
The finishing touch on this Absynth retro Sci-fi FX is adding the Resonators effect to the mix. This really extends the sound and adds the classic resonant reverberation that fits so perfectly with this great sound and truly beings it to life. Once you have successfully recreated this sound, you can begin experimenting with using different waveforms, adding more oscillators and using different effects. The potential number of alternate variations on a sound like this one is nearly limitless!
