Granular Frame Drums - Buddha Yun

2016-03-23 20:45:49

Hello! Today, I am sharing a video that features 20 percussion tracks called "Buddha Yun" created from the Granular Frame Drums expansion pack for users of Steinberg's Padshop and Padshop Pro. I sequenced this composition with Cubase 6.5 using only percussion presets from the expansion pack. Although I needed 20 instances to create this composition, the demand on the computer wasn't bad and I was able to export with no problem. I believe it shows how Padshop and Padshop Pro can be a powerful go to virtual instrument for many types of patches. Not only ambient granular pads.

P.S. "Yun" sounds like the cantonese word for man.

Granular Frame Drums - Walking Buddha Sticks

Hello friends! Today, I am sharing a video demonstrating 20 percussion tracks called "Walking Buddha Sticks" created from the Granular Frame Drums expansion pack for users of Steinberg's Padshop and Padshop Pro. I sequenced this composition with Cubase 6.5 using only percussion presets from the expansion pack. Through the years, I found myself composing many percussion pieces for clients including global events for the Hong Kong government. When it comes to music production, I am impressed how useable Padshop and Padshop Pro can be when in need for that sound.

Have a listen!

Granular Frame Drums - Hello Modwheel Frame

2016-03-14 04:19:10

Granular Frame Drums - War Frames

2016-03-13 04:26:39

Today, I am posting a video demonstrating a loop patch called "War Frames 1 BPM120" from the Granular Frame Drums expansion pack for users of Steinberg's Padshop and Padshop Pro. In this short video, you can hear how the loop can be synced to 120 BPM. The loop is very 'granular' sounding as well as the rest of the War Frame patches by using the padshop granular synthesis. I have used these patches for percussion compositions but in my opinion can be used for electronic music too. So if you are into creating house, techno, electro or jungle beats, you should have a listen.

Thanks for your time!

Granular Frame Drums - Frame Drone 1

2016-03-12 18:22:51

Today's post is a video demonstrating a drone patch called "Frame Drone 1" from the Granular Frame Drums expansion pack for users of Steinberg's Padshop and Padshop Pro. If you are a sound designer you probably have worked with patches like this before. If you are not familiar with sound design, the basic description for this patch is a low frequency drone that can morph into a mid range drone by using the mod wheel. It's a good patch for suspense or sci-fi projects. To hear the patch properly, you probably should listen to this video with headphones or some studio monitors to hear all the frequencies.

Cheers

Granular Frame Drums - Tempo-Synced

2016-03-06 06:24:41

If you have been following this blog you might have heard that I produced an expansion pack for users of Steinberg's Padshop and Padshop Pro for the company Online Music Foundry. Granular Frame Drums has some features that I am pleased with and want to share with you. One of them being the combination patches. In my studio in Hong Kong, I have many different brands of keyboards and modules. One of my old go to workstations is the Korg Extreme's combination patches. It's great to play it's rhythmic layers for inspiration when inspiration is needed. So with that in mind, I tried to emulate the combination patch idea by using the twin LFO's and key follow functions. Below, I have attached a video that demonstrates 5 combination patches in Cubase 6.5 that are tempo-synced.

Check it out!
