Using Guitar Rig with FM8 Bass Synths

If you use the entire collection of Native Instruments products there is literally no end to what you can make. This lesson in using Guitar Rig with FM8 bass synths is a perfect example!

Nowadays you have so many options when it comes to effects and processing your sounds that it is easy to fall into routines and ignore new avenues. Guitar Rig is full of amazing tools for affecting all of your sounds, not just guitars. In fact, using Guitar Rig with your FM8 bass synths is a wonderful way to modulate, tweak and otherwise alter your instruments until they become something so new and innovative that people can’t help but wonder how you are pulling it all off. This video does a good job of showing just some of the ways you can begin to use these two NI products to create your own unique arsenal of sounds!

This approach to processing your FM8 bass synths can forever change the way you approach your sound design sessions. Knowing that you can spend so little time in the synth itself and still end up with a very big and dynamic sound through adding effects in Guitar Rig kind of sets you free. I’ve never been a huge fan of the effects available in FM8, so most of my processing takes place in my DAW using programs like Guitar Rig to make my sounds come alive. Working in the world of production audio teaches you how to see and use your tools very differently than normal music production workflows. And this happens to be one of the tricks the pros use to transform their sounds.

One huge advantage of keeping your FM8 bass synths so simple at their core is that they can be much easier to work with once you do get to the processing phase. And, of course, this makes it easier to make them cut through your mix in the end Often times, Less=More in the audio world. In this case More=Less in a way, because having more options can mean less work if you know how to use them all to your greatest benefit. After you get done following along with this lesson, spend some time taking a few of your sounds that you’ve already made in FM8 and run them through some Guitar Rig racks that you set up yourself. You may surprise yourself with just how good you can make them sound!

Cheers,
