Video 3 – 7th Bass
It’s time we add some beefy layers. In this video, Phillip shows you how to use different oscillator types and the effects of changing octaves and semi-tones. Phillips will show you how to apply a cut off filter and the modification of a standard LFO. You will also learn how a mono sound can have a stereo feel.

He will show you how the oscillators interact and come together to create a totally pro sounding whomp that wobbles.
By the end of this lesson, you will know how to modify the LFO and give it a slope as well as how to create movement in sound.
Video 6 – How to Lead

Video 7 – High-end Drop layer
For this session, you may want to take some notes. There are several steps that you don’t want to miss. You will be multi-routing the LFO to both oscillators, changing the chorus pitch, discovering the benefits of adding some noise and pilling on some subtle effects.
Video 8 – Making your synth speak
It’s not Halloween but Phillip is making some creepy talking sounds that will blow your mind.
Shaping oscillators and using bit crusher distortion. It’s time to learn how to make your synth sound speak. Wrapping up this lesson Phillip demonstrates how to widen the creepy talking synth sound.

You will also learn how to route different modifications to each oscillator and how to make the gliding down effect.
Video 10 – Shift Lead
Now you will be shaping the sound of the lead used for the Drop. Using the electric guitar oscillator and applying multi-effects phaser and flanger. Phillip also shows how to eliminate too much low end by adjusting octaves on the oscillators.
Video 11 – Bass Pluck
In this video, you will learn how to make a metallic rhythmic sounding bass pluck. Phillips also details how to remove any clicking noises, how to EQ in the mid-range and how to widen the sound by cloning and adding unison voices.

Video 14 – Drop Sequences
Apply all you have learned and you are ready to step it up. Phillip will draw shapes in LFO 1, 2, and 3. Using one to create movement, one delayed to ad more control and shape, and 3 to create pulsations in the sound.
