The synth used in "Jump" was a big ol' Oberheim OB-Xa. Oberheims were analog synths capable of the most monstrous, earth-shaking basses around.. many people consider them to be even better at that than Moog synths. Anyway, the patch itself is more or less a simple subtractive patch that can be replicated on any good VA synth (even Superwave P8 I think has a Jump patch, could be wrong). However for the exact Oberheim sound you're out of luck. There are no synth emulations of them because of licensing issues.

Sorry to double post, but does anyone have or have used Z3TA+? It looks friggin awesome, but I hear it isn't as amazing as you'd think... :?

Would a demo help you?? The bass and leads on this:

...song is from Z3TA+!!! I've composed this song myself

rRarrrag. Clipping!

z3ta is cool. Rene's (developer of z3ta, dimension, pentagon, sfz, etc) new synth Rapture just came out and it looks hella awesome. He posts in some forums like the cakewalk forums and KVR and he keeps saying stuff like "this is the FATTEST softsynth ever made" and he's usually pretty reserved about boasting about his works. Take that for what its worth. Might wanna check that one out. You can load your own waveforms into it and use em as oscillators. Badass.

This is the most beautiful electric piano I have ever heard, and I feel the urge to share it.

http://www.soundfonts.it/?a=read&b=20

MrTramp is a Wurlitzer® Electric Piano model 200 simulation.

It's a physical model, that means that all the sound you hear is 100% generated in real time. No samples at all!

It features all the nuances and colorations of the real instrument, such as the noise of the hammers, the noise of the dampers, certain inconsistences between a note and the next one. The last 5 notes (from G#6 to C7) don't have dampers so they're not stopped when the respective keys are released.

Features a built-in tremolo with adjustable intensity, fixed at 6 Hz.

Im really sorry if this has been answered before, but does anyone know of a good *free* compressor thats especially good at sidechaining or at least has it. The only one I've found is on kvraudio and doesn't work with Ableton... I think its just called "sidechain compressor" and is made by a japanese company.

Slim Slow Slider Sidechain Compressor...

Well... it's in VST standard and should work everywhere. If it doesn't in Live, then you're screwed.

Here might be a good starting point for you. But don't expect to get everything for free. Sidechaining is not mandatory, it's more like a bonus feature.

But before you say that Ableton can't use the Slim Slow Slider plugins you should ask yourself if Ableton is even able of using sidechain plugins. Cubase needs some special treatment, but it is possible. If you're a registered user, you might also take a look at the Ableton boards.

Yeah, I know how to sidechain, I've looked through the manual and it says the compressor that comes with it doesn't do sidechaining. I also do know how to sidechain with Ableton, but I just need a compressor that sidechains, which I think you just showed me. Thanks.

I can't for the life of me figure out where to find or how to produce drum sounds on par with something you might hear in say an Infected Mushroom track. If you're not familiar, I'm going for sort of a goa-psy trance thing.

Anyone have any tips / links / etc. that might help me?

Hi, I was curious if any of you know of a VST instrument designed specifically to emulate instruments used in Final Fantasy games?

I'm sorry if this question is out of place, annoying, or something I could have found in remixing 101 (I did bother to run some searches).

Thanks!

I got one expensive, and one free option for you!!!

You can buy Garritan Orchestra or Edirol Orchestral, are using Edirol O. myself, it sounds great!! If you want something free, then get yourself RGCaudio SFZ, a soundfont-playing VST. Get it here:

www.rgcaudio.com/sfz.htm

And then go to hammersound and download a soundfont called "S J Orchestral GM", it sounds great as well!!!

I'll give you some samples here:

First one using the soundfont

..and this is the edirol O.

EDIT: There is also some Final Fantasy soundfonts on www.zophar.net

halloo all.

so, after my hard drive crashed a while back, i lost some very useful plugins that i really need.

does anyone have:

Sun Ra (elogoxa)

The Devil Inside (elogoxa)

Delay Llama (elogoxa)

i'd get them from the site, but they closed up and i can't find them on the net anywhere. i very specifically need Sun Ra - i've got several files that need it for me to be able to work on stuff.

thanks for your help. a yousendit link would be perfect, if anyone's got them.

Hey, I'm just wondering. I've looked around, but I can't find any free electric guitar VSTs. I suppose I could always pay, but if there ARE any free ones that sound relatively good, would you letting me know? Thanks.

don't quote me on this, but i haven't found any. look into good guitar soundfonts - they're easier to find, and tend to be easier to work with because they automate easily (in fruity, at least).

Okay so, noob question. I know how to use VSTi's, but for some reason I can't seem to get effect plugins to work in FLStudio 6. I threw two (dblue's Glitch VST and Magnus's Ambience VST) in the "\Plugins\Fruity\Effects" directory. Then I open up the FX window (the one with all the channels), click "Select > More", do a fast scan to bring them up, the click the checkboxes.

Okay, so now they're in the list. But when I try to add them I get this error message:

untitled0lw.gif

No wrapper pop up or anything. So what am I doing wrong here? I've never used third-party effects plugins before so I'm not sure what the problem is.

Ok ppl I really need ur help. I found a plugin that would be really useful for me and fits like a glove in my current project, but it's a MFX plugin and I'm currently using FL Studio.

Is there any possible way to use it? Wrapper? Convertor?

I highly recommend storing your samples and VST/DX outside the FL Studio install directory. I don't even have to tell you why, it's just better if you use more than one program, or even just FL, so they're a lot easier to find.

For example, all my VSTs and DXs are in C:\VST-DX\

I don't know why but, that solved the problem. Thanks bunches.

hmm... i just had an idea... if sgtrama ain't totally opposed to the idea i could set up some community sample hosting at thasauce, so mixers and wannabes can upload free samples/vst/dx and shit to share with people.

That would be +10, but one would have to be careful with hosting what VSTs. Just because its free doesn't mean one is allowed to distribute it.
