I was always inspired by Diego`s videos, assuming most of you were also and now Diego started a Feedforward sound series in which he explains some of his techniques.
In the first part of the series named “Rhytmic processing”, Diego explains what rhythmic processing is:
Rhythmic Processing is a technique that allows the creation of multiple rhythmic elements, in real-time, from a single instrumental part. The dynamic accents of the instrumental part (in this case an acoustic guitar) are routed into several plugin chains, each one creating a separate rhythmic element.
So what do you get when you purchase a video?
Well in terms of content, you will get a single few minute video, a file and then another file, the video being the one you were looking for. In terms of value you will receive much more than what you have paid for.
Although the video is short Diego doesn’t waste any time explaining how he uses this technique. Noticed how I mentioned “he uses”? Well, it is because you will most likely use it differently, but the principle will be the same.
In the video Diego uses Ableton live but don’t let that discourage you from trying it in your preferred DAW. My choice is Reaper and I had no problem setting up a similar chain using mostly native Reaper FX and NI effects that came with the Komplete 9.
Here is my quick example:
This is a custom percussive Kontakt instrument I made and then I followed the technique to transform it into a bigger and meaner sound.
For a measly 10 bucks this is a no brainer. You will get one video that will most likely change the way you shape your sound especially, if you are a beginner!
