      Hey guys recent member of this forum and i really want to get into making the minimal side of neuro like the guys releasing on critical? i really want to know how to make that reownn sound and those almost whippy kind of sounds paha πŸ™‚

      few good examples: 1:05 onwards this like a broken up version

      and then sure you all know this one πŸ˜‰ but 1:07 fuck mine

      As with all these kind of things it’s hard to say exactly what someone did, always lots of ways to get something similar. But a detuned synth, using lots of pitch bend or portamento, then a band pass filter to give some movement through the harmonics. More than likely making a long sample with lots of notes and bends, and then chopping this up will be a good place to start. Maybe we can get someone to do a tutorial on this kind of thing this season πŸ˜€

      Definitely pitchbend. If it’s about the sound, I would also suggest playing around with very short delay, make it more metallic sounding, robotic.

      Definitely watch this month’s Foreign Concept, might give you some ideas to build off of. A few of the other videos will give ideas as well, off the top of my head the Stealth, Rido, Quadrant, and Amoss videos, if you have access to them.

      also, it can be like the cutoff freq (whatever type of filter it is) is moved by an LFO, and then u link the pitchbend to control both cutoff freq and LFO rate. this way, if u pull the pitchbend upwards, it will raise the rate of the LFO and the freq of the cutoff. and i think its an octave pitch (12 semitones) but you can also try 2 octaves (24 semitones). so it doesnt matter if u use a sample in a sampler, or a synth, the trick is that in the mod matrix, u connect those 2 parameters to the pitchbend. most samplers/synths have this option.

      The Break Tune, I’d say is pretty straight forward…Genie tips kinda covered it. Sounds to me like just a good synth patch with a bit of reverb/delay and a Bandpass filter….maybe some distortion on the synth patch.
      Dead Limit Reece is really just a sick Reece patch typically made with a Triangle or Square in the synth, same type of FX setup as Break but, the twist you want is an automated LFO. It’s just off at the beginning of the note, & gets turned on as the note stretches…There are countless ways to get this effect but, I’d recommend putting a Reece patch in a sampler & Set the LFO to modulate the cutoff Freq’s & play around. Probably a LFO set to 1/4, 1/8th, or 16th notes…or they are just sweeping the Frequency of the Lfo…Giving it that WAAAAAHWHAHWHAHWHAHWAWAWAwawa effect. LFO’s are you best friend when it come to DNB!I hope you know that at least! Happy writing!
