What do you think is the genre where sound design is important?
I mean designing synth from scratch, for example. In these days where presets and samples are so good in quality, I'm just wondering.

Your unique genre. There are endless variations of junk music made from same sound packs, and when you're using packs for your music it just becomes another junk tune that no one cares about who made it, because it all sounds the same.

i suppose "ambient"
as the sound design is the track, no melody, no rhythm just timbre and motion, live sound designing so to speak?

but as said above, any really if you want what you are doing to be unique. yeah use some basic sounds for the bulk of a work, but i personally would be looking to at least do pads and lead myself for example, using presets for the rest :shrug:

Anything experimental or ambient I suppose ... but there's more to sound design than synths. Some people like to make music with found sounds they record themselves for example. Effects sound design is important too.

So it is ambient.. What about drum n bass? And do you think processing or tweaking presets/samples to the point it sounding different can be called sound design?
