In a video about HIVE I found this sound, which I find amazing:
Being just a beginner with Pigments and sound design, I don’t even know what to look for to find something similar in Pigments.
Browsing all > 1800 sounds doesn’t help, after a while I’m nothing but confused and overwhelmed.
What ‘type’ would that sound be called? What genre, style and characteristics to look for?
If you have any tips for sounds in Pigments that come close, that’d be very much appreciated!
Or some hints about the basic ‘ingredients’ of such a sound so I could give it a try to build it from scratch.
The sound around the 11:00 mark is Brass type. I found Pigments preset “Silvermoon” from “Nhar on Pigments” sound bank is kinda similar, but it’s a relatively simple sound to make.
A basic version is to start with a saw wave and a low-pass filter, and roll the filter cutoff back. Use an envelope to modulate the filter cutoff so it starts high and quickly drops back down, giving that brass attack right at the start of each note.
Here is a starting point for that sound. Two key parameters in the preset are Env2 to adjust the filter change, and I mapped velocity to Env2 decay to add dynamics. You can reverse the velocity map value if you want the opposite affect to your soft/hard playing. You’ll have to experiment with filter types from the warmth you want. You can also mapped cutoff to after touch or mod wheel instead of a knob,
