Noise Sweeps with the Sampler's Fade In Function
In this tutorial, we look at a quick way to create noise sweeps within Maschine’s sampler using the Fade In function.
This tutorial covers how to create noise sweeps within Maschine’s sampler using the Fade In function. In an earlier tutorial, I demonstrated some other methods for creating sweeps, but using a noise source with Fade In is as quick and simple as it gets. White or pink noise sampled from a synth or simplynoise.com is all that we need.
First, determine the length of the sweep you would like to create, then truncate it. In the video, I decided to go for a four-bar buildup at 128 BPM. This should last exactly 7.5 seconds. [ (4 bars x 4 beats per bar) / (128 beats per minute / 60 seconds per minute) = 7.5 seconds ]
Next, simply use the Fade In feature to create an even fade towards full volume for our buildup. If the fade is not dramatic extreme enough, it’s easy to just use Fade In once or twice again.
Finally, after using Fade In, turn on the two-pole lowpass filter in Maschine’s sampler. After practicing a few times, record the automation to sweep the cutoff from minimum to maximum.
