The Art Of Synth Soloing
Example 1: Using Rob Papen’s Blue 2 softsynth, listen to the unaffected riff, then a version with LFO Rate modulation modulation added to the vibrato.
Example 2: Using Spectrasonic’s Omnisphere, listen to the straight riff, then a version with tremolo using the same LFO rate as the vibrato. This is followed by a version using a slower LFO rate for the tremolo.
Example 3: Using Arturia’s DX7 V listen to the straight riff with vibrato followed by a version with added Modulator modulation, brightening the sound when I introduce the vibrato.
Example 4: Using Arturia’s Mini 3 listen to the straight riff, followed by adding sweeping the pitch of the synced oscillator along with the vibrato.
Example 5: Using Rob Papen’s Predator 2 soft synth, we first play the riff using only vibrato, followed a version fading in an oscillator tuned an octave below, plus a sub-oscillator.
Example 6: Using Rob Papen’s Predator 2 soft synth, we first play the riff using only vibrato, followed a version with oscillator detuning added.
