How do I make an instrument that sounds like this?

Post by jyn »

Hi! Sound newbie here. I love to play around with the piano instruments that come with SunVox. Then I apply effects to the tracks in Cecilia. It's not amazing music, but I enjoy it. I would love to be able to create a module that sounds like the processed result to play live in SunVox.

Example:

What kind of processing would go into creating such a warped sound?

What effects are you applying in Cecilia?

That would probably help others help you find how to achieve similar results in SunVox.

Ah of course. In this case I applied UltimateGrainer (under Time) and there is a slight automation of grain duration and filter cutoff that arcs over the length of the song.

try this:

- add a reverb module
- set the dry to 0
- set the room size to 128
- set the mode to "lq"
- set the allpass filter to "off"
- play around with the seed
- play around with other settings

maybe you could add a chorus or a filter, but this is how i'd make this sound in sunvox

Wow, that's so simple and effective. Maybe I have weird taste, but I think this is a great sound. :) Thank you Autumn.
