Expert tricks



FM bell:
- Make FM instrument, set carrier and modulator attacks to 0, set C.Mul to 1 and M.Mul to 5 (adjust these to suit), set feedback to 16 and M.Vol to 8, make adjustments as you feel appropriate.
- Feed into a Filter (LPF mode) with about a 3000Hz cutoff.
- Feed into Vibrato with about 5 amplitude.
- Feed into an LFO with about 90 (2d00) power and about 200 (0c72) freq.
- Feed into a Flanger with a long delay and some extra feedback.
- Feed into a Delay for extra stereo.
- Feed into an Echo.

Strings / Brass:
- Make analogue generator, set to saw (strings) OR use dirty and an exponential pinch waveform (brass - will require extra tweaking!). Adjust attack and decay to suit.
- Feed into Vibrato with about 50 (0311) freq.
- Feed into Vibrato with about 5 amplitude.
- Feed into Reverb with 0 dry, 100% wet, and about 70 (4600) room width.
