Advanced ANA 2 Sound Design with King Unique
In this tutorial we look at how to get a classic DX7 sound using the mod envelope assigned to the FM.
To celebrate ANA 2's 1st Birthday we welcome back his royal highness, and self confessed synth nerd King Unique for some majestic tips and tricks in sound design.
Over these 10 quick videos Matt shows just how deep and flexible ANA 2 can be, from giving your initial attack some bite and recreating the sound of the classic DX7 FM synth, to emulating worn out components of a vintage synth adding a ton of character to your synth lines.
We also check out some of the endless modulation options available to shape and evolve your sound, from the subtle to the downright crazy and see how we can use macros to switch between filtered tonal differences and even add swing to a modulated arp so it fits with the groove of our track.
These tutorials may be short, but they open the door to a whole world of synthesis and sound design that this awesome synth is capable of, and as Matt shows, once you start to assign different parameters to envelopes and LFO's, who knows where it will take you?
It's certainly a whole load of fun finding out!
