Rhythmic Tropical House Synth in Massive
In this tutorial, Echo Sound Works shows you how to create a rhythmic Tropical House synth in Massive. It’s easy to do and sounds great!
Tropical House is a sub genre of EDM that started to gain popularity in 2014. It was pioneered by Australian DJ/Producer Thomas Jack. The tempo will typically range from 100-120 so it’s a slower genre of EDM. The drums will have tropical percussive elements and some of the synths will be syncopated to upbeats.
This rhythmic Tropical House synth in Massive is a great sound to create a nice syncopated vibe.
All I did was load up a synth patch that I liked the sound of and by that I mean a patch that sounded good playing block chords. I then applied an LFO to the cut off filter with a interesting ratio setting of 2:12.
Dubstep, for instance, will typically use ratios of 1:4 or 1:8 The ratio setting of 2:12 slows down the wobble and gives it a syncopation. I further enhanced that effect by modulating the amp of the LFO with a envelope that had a long attack time.
