  1. by a cd from target or walmart or the wherehouse or something in the sounds of nature series and there should be one fo them to do with wind and then just rip the audio. As soon as I get my new computer this is the route im going to go and im gonna have samples up the wazoo as far as nature sounds and animals and thunder and water and etc
  2. I think you are thinking of the coarse knobs (when you say that only go by semitones). The coarse is what you can adjust to make one oscillator a semitone, tone, to an octave or two higher... The fine tuning works with cents, far less than a basic coarse adjuster. Fine tuning tunes in degrees smaller than note of a single note distance. If you wanted to do what you just described you would still move each note up one half step (440 to 476, 220 to 238) but for the oscillator of the 238 you can adjust the fine tuning to reach values of each hz inbetween that and the next semi tone. Fine tuning
  3. are you looking for a woodblock you can pitch up and down? You'd probably be able to do this if you just find a wav sample of a woodblock and just pitch it how you want. If you can't find a good sample, then go to hammersound and check through a lot of the drumkits (i dont mean just look for a woodblock drumkit, i mean look at the regular drumkits that may have woodblocks in them) until ou find a good sounding woodblock then make a single strike of the block at like 280 bpm so you can get a short sample (should give a smaller file size this way) and just export it to wav and use it this way.
  4. cant you do that with fine tuning? (not trying to sound smart assed or anything, but is this what you mean?)
  5. i do believe there were some fonts at hammersound... people really should at least try to look for sounds before requesting them... i cant believe somoene actually requested a nice piano on here a page back lol, if you dont find what you want at hammersound check google. I know theres a like 120 meg piano font floating around the net. I really miss the soundsite though, that was my friggin heaven. The best soundfont site that ever existed I wish i could find an archive or something from them.
  6. I was messing around with ovation the other day and it is very good. all you need is the proper eq, reverb, and velocity adjustments and note placement (i get the feeling most of the bad reviews are from the people who would write a guitar chord with every note hit at once and shit like that lol) You just have to think about how it would sound if you were actually playing the song on a guitar. how your hand would hit harder on the bass strings on the way down and harder on the high strings (and missing the low strings practically) on the way up. Strumming... hahaha... good luck, but it can b
  7. yeah, i think it was beatdrop who mentioned mutant koto in the original thread where the guy asked for ethnic vst's. He didnt have the link so I just found it and threw it in the post. I am pretty sure he mentioned mutagene making it too. I think analoq should make some vst's. He seems to be "one of" the most knowledgable people on the site when it comes to synthesis.
  8. I really like the feel of egokiller for old school sounds. Like so > I have made a lot of old school synths while messing around with egokiller. I rarely use oldschool stuff so I dont have any other samples, but if you want old school bass patches you can work something out with this and its fairly user friendly. Not too much to control but enough to make it versatile. And yeah, fm7 is what everyone says for old school shit, so take zircons advice.
  9. COPY FROM THREAD ABOUT ETHNIC VST'S... You should probably be more specific than ethnic instruments... are you looking for percussive, pitched percussive, plucked, blown, bowed, etc? If you want some plucked instrument sound you can get the slayer 2 vst which has a preset for a sitar which you can alter to get other similair instrument sounds from it. Its not the best for modeling guitar (well i guess its probably one of the best in the market, but its nothing compared to the real thing) but for other picked/plucked instruments you may find a good use for it. http://www.kvr-vst.com/get/245.h
  10. I very much enjoyed this piece, seriously this is going to get a ton of play by me in the future. The only thing i dont like is the sorta high hatty sound i hear like at 0:23 (this is the best example because the sound actually occurs when no notes are playing. I dont know what this is, maybe just recording fuzz, but it really got annoying to me). Then there are sudden bassy plunks like at 0:27 which dont happen to often and i know this is just due to the bass notes in the piano but it still kinda got to me. But like I said, I enjoyed this piece on many levels... musically, mentally, emotio
  11. This might have been answered in the beginning of the thread because this was the reason for my first post in it and started the whole thread, lol. I remember someone linked me to one, but I didnt like it that much.
  12. the sounds are just quiet in squidfont from what I remember. Throw on a compressor with no compression at all and just up the amp until the sounds to the level you want
  13. I dont even remember saying that, lol... I have been sick for a few days, i might have been out of it. I would normally not try and describe the way an lfo works or what its purpose is. I understand it but I know I can't explain it... so my trying to was pointless and i really dont know what i tried for.
  14. so your looking for help with fruityloops? Instead of reading 6 pages, read just one, the page that has all the topics for remix 101 in it oh yeah, and then when you find the fruityloops 101 thread... Then you have like a thousand pages to read, heh, good luck
  15. A wah effect can be produced in multiple ways actually. The most effective, from my personal experience, is have an envelope adjusting the cutoff and reson, and you can even adjust the amp if you want the Wah to come out from no sound, or if you want sound that wahs through. Basically work with your cut off envelope and get a decent wah sound then fiddle with the reson and amp a bit and the cutoff some more. This method works for the type of wah sound I like...
