Re: Tutorial: How to create Ambient Soundscapes

@EatTheFood - I opened up each of the plugin's so people could see the names quickly. It's called Devine Square Pad.

Re: Tutorial: How to create Ambient Soundscapes

Nice tutorial man!
I was experimenting around with heavily layered pads & found sounds earlier this week, and this tutorial definitely gave me some ideas to progress - namely volume automation and letting sounds weave in and out for added movement.

Cheers

Re: Tutorial: How to create Ambient Soundscapes

I like the idea of using HP on all of the pads. In the past, I haven't layered my pads. Thanks for the tutorial!

Re: Tutorial: How to create Ambient Soundscapes

great tutorial - very clear and precise
some good ideas and thoughts going on in the production process

as I'm looking to venture more in to this kind of thing, it is a good introduction in how to start creating these soundscapes

Thanks

The name of the preset is in the video... go to 1:58 and pause. See where it says "devine square pad"?
