|Author||Topic: These Sounds are great...What Synth is behind them?|

I have been learning to producing since this summer. I am trying to produce Funky House Music. Can anyone reccomend some VSTs that I should look at to get sounds similar to the samples I posted here? I have PRO-53, FM7, Albino & Vangaurd allready but they sound very trancy. I dont know how to create my own patches yet, would downloading some patches help me out? Are there any tips on creating funky basslines like the ones in these samples?

Of the ones you list, Albino will probably do the job for the main synth-line in samples #1 and #2.
Also, the synth sounds like Korg Polysix, you can try Korg Legacy demo to see if that gets you the sound...

Absynth might be a good choice, but first off, I would download Green Oaks Crystal (free) and play with that for about 200 hours. Crystal is amazingly flexible once you work with it for a while. If you are stumped by it's complexity, then keep hitting the breed button until you hear something you like (turn your volume down quite a bit before you do this).
Also, you might find some good soundfonts that can get close to the sound you are looking for. Especially in the area of sampled hardware synths.
Of course, I don't do this type of music, so I'm probably little help.

Gmediamusic impOSCar can do everything in the samples and it got one of the fullest and fattest bass sounds there is!
I can only say good things about it and it does not cost a fortune, buy it and good luck man.
Go to the www.gmediamusic.com and download the demo!

Are there any guides/tutorials for tweaking/creating patches? I really dont like the patches my VSTs come with but I have no idea how to change them for my needs.

Mini moog (cant remember the companys name , arturia or something). its £140 and it would give you most of the sounds you ever wanted for massive electro funky house records. I've been doing lots of great records with it.
also samples are useful, if you here a synth you like, just sample it and fuck it up.

Why is everyone "producing" music these days?

Hellooooo - "producing" - as in "Record Producer"!!!! I just love tasteful sarcasm, doesn't everyone?
We are straying far off topic, but what the heck. That's actually a good question. I'm going to start using the phrase - "computer music production" to describe what I do musically on the computer. When I say that I'm into computer music most people assume that I am into illegal mp3 downloads.
producing - It has a nice ring to it, Man.

The Generic Tweaking Tutorial
1. Study the interface of your VSTi, what's there?
2. optional: read the manual what the different controls actually do
3. Load a patch/program you want to tweak
4. Fiddle with the controls and try to figure out what they contribute to the sound
5. Fiddle until you're satisfied
6. Save as new patch.
