I was listening to Zedd’s “Straight into the Fire” and at the 3:07 mark I heard him do something that stopped me in my tracks.
“What was that!!??” …. i was mesmerized, perplexed, intrigued. And I had to make that sound my own. I had to learn how to do it!
After thinking about it for a while, I had an idea of how to do it. Then, the other day I was producing a song and thought I saw an opportunity to give it a try. I was very happy with the results and thought I would share.
You’ll need a granular synth that allows you to import your own audio, I used Omnisphere, but here’s a thread discussions that lists other options.
Or Valhalla Shimmer.
Here’s my video, showing how to do it.
