    Attached above is my latest attempt at a patch on Serum. I don’t think it sounds terrible in the lower registers (though it could be improved) but it’s def more cheesy in the higher registers.

    Also, when you compare to a real bass clarinet, I feel defeated haha https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pAdLMSGpbY&ab_channel=MarceloMaldonado

    Thanks Joe! I’ll definitely try all this!

    Congrats on finishing Syntorial!

    1. Typically triangle or sine. Sine may be a better choice for a more natural sounding vibrato as the Triangle has a slightly more abrupt U-turn at the top and bottom.

    2. I don’t think it’s a simple as choosing the right waveform. Rather it’s your whole sound that matters. I think any raw waveform will sound kind of corny with vibrato. So it’s more about what you do with that waveform that matters. Like…

    3. Portamento. That’s a good idea. Adding additional bends between notes could make it more natural.

    4. It’s kind of redundant. I never use it. I remember mentioning it somewhere in the Serum Lesson Pack but can’t off the top of my head think of the use I demonstrated. If you don’t need it, don’t use it.

    Can you post an example of what you’ve made so far? It may not be your vibrato settings, but the tone you’re working with. Like you said, those two examples are actual vocals, versus your synth.

    Thanks Joe! See the link to download my current patch (built on Massive). It doesn’t sound great I know; I was trying to match the sound in that Radiohead song I linked above.

    definitely finish the tutorial lesson and then do the massive lesson for that module, then go down the list that way.

    the massive lesson pack goes into how to find the same functionality from the tutorials within massive, but it doesn’t re-cover the underlying concepts from the tutorials.

    so i’d go through the module first, skip the last one (“on your own”), and do the massive lesson at the end of that module, rinse, repeat.

    Apologies for the double-post (I can’t figure out how to edit posts): A good example is the “FM Bass” patch as part of the Section 22 Serum lessons. If you hadn’t told me that was FM synthesis, I would never have guessed it. I would’ve just went with a Sine wave and maybe a sub-oscillator.

    Thanks Joe!

    Sorry, but can you elaborate on what a “voice” is? I’m not sure what you mean when you say “oscillator within each unison voice.”

    Shouldn’t the sound at least be louder because the unison is copying each oscillator?

    bump! i might not have gotten far enough in syntorial to program this crash yet but any assistance would be VERY helpful. all other synth tracks are done ^_^

    great! yeah, i go through each lesson and then do the massive, serum, and sylenth1 add-ons (might as well do them all in one go). it’s been great so far and relatively smooth.

    switching topics, what new features do you have planned for syntorial and when do you think you’ll roll them out?
