Postby himalaya; Wed Mar 16, 2011 9:19 am 'Modernity' for DCAM Synth Squad - new sound bank

Hi All,

I'm very happy to announce a new sound bank for DCAM Synth Squad which is released and distributed by FXpansion.

'Modernity' consists of contemporary sounds suitable for modern dance styles and is created for Fusor. Electro, Progressive House, Minimal Techno, Dubstep, etc. producers will find lots of usable material with sequenced Animator layers, raw and deep basses, effects with practical transition sweeps, snappy but full plucks, minimal synth sounds, Dubstep basses and textures... etc.

Each preset has Fusor Macros assigned for immediate transformation.

These are the sound categories covered:

Animator (this in itself contains a sub group of bass/chord/leads).
Arpeggiated
Bass
Chord
Special FX
Keys
Lead
Pad
Pluck
Sequenced Bass
Sequenced Chord
Sequenced Synth
Sequenced FX
Synth
Texture

Please have a listen to audio demos which showcase most sounds in complete tracks and single preset sound categories. The single preset demos are sometimes accompanied by drum loops to put the preset in context. Demos and more info:

circuit modeling and 0-dfb filters are cool

Listenig to the demos now!I think these patches could fit into prog, classic
rock,and prog metal mixes too.I gotta get dcam.These patches have a Beautiful snappy top end,like some moog voyager demos I've heard.Did you use any additional processing.

@penguinfromthedeep,
Thank you and let the juicy bits nourish your music well. :D

@bill45,
That is it. With creative approach these sounds, like any other, can be used in styles you mention as well. I'm glad you have said that. The Bass, Lead and Pad presets especially.

With regards to additional processing. There was no external corrective EQ processing used in any of the demos, however Fusor's EQ is used in some presets, sometimes in a dynamic manner, so that as you turn the mod wheel up the EQ could be cutting or boosting, depending on what else is going on with the mod wheel.
In the Track demos I used compression mostly to provide side chain pumping to keep tracks in context of the genre they imitate. See both Progression demos. The effect is very evident.

The category demos with single presets do not use compression to such an extent, only to keep the peaks at bay. All demos have a limiter on the output bus to rise the level and keep demos in line with most other dance oriented demos by other companies. But there is no processing here which would alter the sound so much as to mislead the listener.

@pdxindy,
Thank you :-)

@Igro
That's an Animator preset (AN Progressing).

Forgot to mention, some of these presets are a bit CPU heavy with 3 synths and lots of effects, but then I suppose DCAM users know that Synth Squad requires a couple of cores or more.

Surprised this isn't getting more attention here really.. the pack is perfect for the dubstep & prog house crowds. Maybe you should have called the thread "How do I make a wobble bass? [SOLVED]".. or "How do I make a Deadmau5 pluck [SOLVED]" ;)

I would not limit it in two subgenres, whatever hyped they can be atm, this soundset is interesting for all pure electronic genres imho, and probably more. If I had SSQuad, I would be tempted.

And some of the demos are very nice too :tu:
