Everyone needs to create a nice bass and lead synth at some point, and for those of you new to sound design in FM8 this FM8 House Bass/Lead Tutorial video tutorial will be very helpful in making you aware of some key parameters to be aware of when beginning the process.
This FM8 House Bass/Lead Tutorial video comes to you from YouTube user wwwJoJoGocom and is very quick and simple in its approach to showing a basic house synth sound being designed in Native Instruments FM8.
Touching on some important tools like Voicing and Quality to make your sound bigger and provide a bit more interest to the listener, he shows in real-time the difference each step makes as the audio continues to loop through the sequence letting you hear for yourself the changes made.
Routing a sound through the Z carrier means you can take advantage of the intelligent multi-mode filter that it has built in, and he does just thi sin the video and shows how making some adjustments to the cutoff and envelope change the sound considerably. You should try experimenting with automating these parameters over time through your DAW to add more development and motion to your songs.
Introducing a second carrier with a different ratio makes for a much wider and complex sound, as well. Something to keep in mind for future sessions in FM8. In the end this quick little video has quite a bit to offer if you take the time to really look at what is being done.
