Learn How to Recreate Sounds From Iconic Electronic Tracks With the DRC Virtual Synth
Trentemoller, Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder, Radiohead, Moderat, Portishead, Maceo Plex, and Daft Punk all feature in the tutorials from Imaginando.
Innovative software manufacturer Imaginando has released season two of its popular sound design tutorial series.
The series uses Imaginando’s flagship soft-synth DRC, a powerful yet easy-to-use polyphonic synthesizer, to recreate sound design elements from classic electronic tracks. The series was inspired by DRC’s genetic makeup, which looks to reproduce the loved characteristics of some of the most cherished analog synthesizers on the planet. Rather than wasting time and CPU power on front-end visual recreation, Imaginando has refitted the elements of what made those synths so loved—their sounds—into an intuitive set of parameters and user interface.
Launched last year, season one of the tutorial series looked to classic elements from tracks such as Radiohead’s “Everything In Its Right Place,” Daft Punk’s “Da Funk,” Moderat’s “A New Error,” Portishead’s “Roads,” and even the theme from Blade Runner. Season two, released earlier this year, follows suit with staggering recreations of Trentemøller, Äme’s Frank Weidmann, Muse, Stephen Bodzin, and many more.
