Hi everybody. In this Let's Play Music installment I'll go over an easy technique to add texture to your sound using an external sound source. By external, I'm referring to any sound not generated by your primary audio source, i.e. your synth, guitar, vocal, what-have-you. In this case I'm using an engine that generates various vinyl artifacts (hiss, crackle, buzz, etc.) to add a "retro" vibe to an electric piano. Have a look!
As you can see in the video, the technique is rather simple. I'll briefly mention the steps below for quick reference:
Keep in mind that art is not about gimmicks. Make sure you write good music before spending time polishing it. Don't be formulaic! Have fun and create meaningful art!
See you on the next video,
