[aside title=”Killer Lasers!“] Adding a high pitch signature synth to your mix will attract some more attention![/aside]
Ryan always does a great job of explaining how to go about recreating popular sounds in a way that can be followed by both beginners and seasoned vets alike. This NI Massive video tutorial is no exception!
Sampling the sounds for you using different wavetable types, setting up the filter, FX, EQ and inserts plus automating the pitch automation using an envelope, he walks you through each of the most important parameters to tweak in order to achieve this type of synth. He also points out that this is a basic sound and that you should try your best to arrive at a sound that is your own and will work best with your music.
You may also want to play around with a small amount of delay and/or distortion in your DAW, too. These subtle additions can take a simple sound like this to a whole new level of character and creativity, giving you a new signature sound to entertain your audience with. Some other interesting ideas to experiment with are using some slight chorus, phasing or panning to enhance the size and development of your sound. Of course, automating these things over time in your song will add even more interest and allow your music to stand out above others.
