Lesson 3 - Synthesis: Creating Your Own Sound

Synthesis Basics with the TAL U-No 60
  1. Oscillator
    - Square wave, Sawtooth wave, Sinewave
    - Detune
  2. Amplitude Envelope
    - Attack
    - Decay
    - Sustain
    -Release
  3. Filter
    - High Pass Filter, Low Pass Filter
    - Frequency cutoff
    - Resonance
    - Filter Envelope
  4. LFO
    - Rate / Sync
    - Modulating Filter or Amplitude
  5. Chorus




AlphaCM

(1) Acid Bassline
  1. Start with Z-Init
  2. Only 1 Oscillator
  3. Square Wave
  4. Glide
  5. Frequency Cutoff 10:00, Resonance 01:00
  6. Filter Envelope - Sustain to zero, Decay to 12:00
(2) String Pad
  1. Start with Z-Init
  2. Sawtooth waves
  3. Filter 12db
  4. Frequency cutoff 09:00, Resonance 11:00
  5. Filter envelope Attack 09:00, Decay 09:00, Sustain 03:00, Release 02:00
  6. Amplitude envelope Attack 10:00, Decay 11:00, Sustain 03:00, Release 11:00
  7. Chorus 100% wet, Rate 02:00
  8. Matrix: LFO modulates Frequency Cutoff
(3) Electro Lead
  1. Start with Z-Init
  2. Sawtooth waves at different octaves
  3. Detune 10:00
  4. Frequency cutoff to maximum, Resonance 10:00
  5. Amplitude Envelope - adjust Release
  6. Matrix: LFO modulates Frequency Cutoff
  7. Chorus
(4) Punchy Bass
  1. Start with Z-Init
  2. One Oscillator only, turn Mix to 1
  3. Set one waveform to SawBass
  4. Amplitude Envelope: Attack 0, Decay 11:00, Sustain 0, Release 11:00
  5. Filter Envelope: Same
  6. Filter type 24db
  7. Frequency Cutoff 10:00, Resonance 10:00

(5) Smooth Pad
  1. Start with UH Initialize
  2. Envelope 1 (Amp envelope) Attack: 70, Sustain 90, Release 60
  3. Filter type change to LP Vintage2
  4. Resonance 65
  5. Envelope 2 (Filter Envelope) Attack 75, Decay 65, Sustain 60, Release 90
  6. Filter Cutoff - assign to LFO1, increase depth, try the modulation wheel
  7. Reduce LFO rate
(6) Sci-fi Sounds
  1. Start with UH Initialize
  2. Oscillator 2 - Set Tune to 25
  3. Assign Tune to LFO1, set to -50, try Mod Wheel
  4. Noise Generator set to White Noise, volume at 40
  5. Filter Type change to LP Allround
  6. Reduce ENV 2 modulation of Filter to 45
  7. Cutoff increase to 15, add resonance
  8. Assign Filter Frequency to LFO1
  9. LFO1 Sync set to 1/8th notes, type set to RAND HOLD
