Melodiefabriek is specialised in sound design.
“Sound design is the process of specifying, acquiring, manipulating or generating audio elements. It is employed in a variety of disciplines including filmmaking, television production, theatre, sound recording and reproduction, live performance, sound art, post-production, and video game software development. Sound design most commonly involves the manipulation of previously composed or recorded audio, such as sound effects and dialogue. In some instances it may also involve the composition or manipulation of audio to create a desired effect or mood. A sound designer is one who practices the art of sound design.” – Wikipedia
Back in the day, I was asked by Propellerhead to design patches for Reason. The Props needed many patches for the Factory Sound Bank and one of the most important type of sounds the Props wanted us sound designers to program was what we call Bread & Butter sounds.
I have been so impressed by the sonic possibilities of the Europa synth by Reason so I decided to make a package for it containing 132 80s tribute sounds. Many of them will bring back memories of the classic synths like the Mono/Poly or the Prophet 5.
The Props announced that version 9.5 of Reason will support VST plugins. What!? Yes indeed! Time for an analysis.
As a member of Disquiet Junto I made an audio journal 2016 of 1 minute: 12 months of 5 seconds each, combined with hard transitions.
Many years ago I designed the Vox George Michael patch for Reason’s Factory Sounds ReFill. In respect to George Michael. Here’s that story.
“The Assignment: Compose a piece of music in which the material processed is secondary to the processing.”
Reason 9 includes some very useful new tools and some of the older stuff every Reason should have. Including my sounds.
Rockmen is a ReFill for Propellerhead Reason users which consists of 9 guitar amp simulation presets + 71 additional presets for modulation, saturation, delay effects and so on. The main ingredient of the Rockmen ReFill is a custom build AMP Combinator.
As a sound designer I explore interesting sounds. I study them and try to reconstruct them. In this post I examine the rhythm sound of an old Casio VL-1 and reproduce it in Propellerhead Reason software.
This assignment for the Disquiet Junto Project was created in Propellerhead Reason 8. I used the Thor synth device to generate the white noise which I send through a Comb Filter and a Formant Filter in series. I automated the sweep of the Frequency and Resonance of the Comb Filter and the X and Y parameters […]
Yesterday the short film Short had its first viewing in Amsterdam. I was responsible for the sound design and mixing. Short was written, directed and produced by Naima Challioui. It will be screened on film festivals soon. I mixed it within Ableton Live.
