Today let’s talk about two powerful tools in electronic music production: the envelope follower, and the complex LFO! We’ll use these tools to add texture and glue to our drumloops, and even create entirely new instruments made up of atonal noise textures.
These concepts are universally applicable, but in this video we will demonstrate these concepts using Cableguys Noiseshaper VST, as they were so kind as to sponsor this video. Find the Cableguys VSTs here: https://www.cableguys.com/
