You can make pretty much any sound you want using subtractive synthesis (or virtual analog), including effects, pads and strings, leads, and bass. In this third quick tip I'll show you how to create a classic lead patch. We'll be using FabFilter One, an inexpensive but effective synth.
Traditionally the Envato meetups have taken place over a few hours and a few drinks. This year our CEO Collis wanted to craft a meetup that captures what Envato represents. So we’ve created Envato Live, a full day event with a focus on creativity and skill sharing. We’ve rented out rooms at a very fun and creative space called Catalyst Ranch in Chicago for June 7th. For that day only we’ll be creating a pop-up coworking space!
Encouraging our community to be inspired by collaboration, we are providing a space for like-minded creatives to work next to each other. You can spend the day on your own projects alongside other community members, or you can take part in our ‘create-a-thon’ and collaborate your heart out.
You’ll be joined by Envato staff and some of our Elite marketplace authors, ready to chat, mingle and skill share. Come and be inspired by their tips for running a successful business with Envato, hear their stories and meet the creative individuals who are at the top of their game!
We’ll be providing all our hardworking community members with a delicious lunch, brand new Envato hoodies and an opportunity to get to know each other at afternoon drinks. There’ll also be wifi, awesome people to inspire you and a relaxed, comfortable environment to work from. What could be better?
Grab Your Ticket
We’re extremely excited about this event, it’s a bit different from anything we’ve done before and we know it’s going to be a hit! The event is open to anyone who loves making stuff, whether you’re an Envato user, author, reader or community member.
If this sounds like an event you'd like to attend, buy your tickets now! We have limited space so you’ll need to get in quick.
Much like DJs making their own extended edits or dancers crying out for one more tune at lights on, DJ Koze prolonged the afterglow of his widely adored 2013 Amygdala album with two remixes packages. Following reworks by Matthew Herbert and Efdemin, the second shift crew of Roman Flügel and Robag Wruhme continue to wring magic from Koze’s originals at the same high caliber as their predecessors.
Flügel’s remix concentrates the scattered elements of the title track into a mostly smooth, gently burbling stream of sound, only a four note melody jumping up so regularly it recalls a fountain on a timer. His signature, jazz-like synth solo segues into a more dynamic second half where Milosh’s honeyed vocals and mallet runs jangle in the air, nodding to the original before diving back into the stream. Wruhme’s “Broky Frumu Rehand” of “Nices Wölkchen” is closer in spirit to the original, content to let details run wild and break into the deep, bass-driven pulse to make space for Apparat’s soaring vocals. Still, it’s considerably more floor-friendly — dreamy but driven along a clear path. Koze and Wruhme are certainly kindred producers, and this remix feels like the fraternal twin who’s a natural dancer. In kind, it’s probably the record’s most valuable cut. One walks away from this second batch of remixes feeling like afterglow of Amygdala could last forever if Koze wasn’t so discerning in his choice of remixers. Instead we get to stretch it out ourselves as long as we keep them in our crates.
