How to make the arpeggio, bass and pad sounds from Daft Punk ‘Son Of Flynn’


Hello, this is Lucas Palmeira from Imaginando and I’m here to give you another tutorial on DRC. Today I’m gonna show you how to make the arpeggio, bass and pads for the song ‘Son Of Flynn’ by Daft Punk This is actually a really really great track has a lot of inspiration from 18th century Baroque music basically especially I would say Bach because it’s very Very baroque like, the composition. So we’re gonna start with the arpeggio that basically Leads all the harmony of the track. So let’s get started and Open a DRC on the default patch. So first thing I’m going to do is go to the second oscillator Raise it [OSC 2] to maximum and And set the fine tune to 0.132 PRE-GAIN to maximum now we go to the envelope generator 2, which is the amount of this envelope generator that controls the behaviour over time of the cutoff We’re gonna drop the CUTOFF first to 0.570 Change the mode of the filter from a low-pass 4-pole to low-pass 2-pole and raise a little bit the RESONANCE to 0.082 Okay now we drop the envelope generator 2 amount to 0.634 Sorry I said drop, I meant raise. Next we go to the first envelope generator. This one controls the amplitude of the sound through time, and we raise the ATTACK to 0.28 Just a tiny bit so we take the click off Now DECAY at 0.244 and SUSTAIN at 0 Okay now RELEASE at 0.16 Next we get the second envelope generator the one that controls the cutoff filter and we’re gonna raise the ATTACK to 0.190 Okay DECAY at zero SUSTAIN at zero and RELEASE at 0.1 finally for this sound we go to the reverb We raise the AMOUNT to 0.298 We raise the DECAY to 0.681 Okay Next I have here a little bit of equalizing: the first one will boost a little bit of the highs and take [out] some of the bass frequencies. And the other one boosts frequencies at around 1k Hertz like this Finally I have a DLYM here this DLYM has a TIME of 0.187 no FEEDBACK, slow RATE of 0.103 and a DEPTH of 0.427 This gives a little bit, I have DRY/WET at half, this gives a little bit of character. Okay, and now with the DLYM Okay, and this is it let’s go now to the bass Okay on the bass. I’m gonna open a DRC and I have here an arpeggiator at 1/16 playing if I… With a [ARP] GATE of 0.61 and a rate of 1/16, so let’s get started Change the oscillator [OSC 1] to a square wave like this And on second oscillator we drop one octave Like this On the SUB oscillator we raise one octave Okay. Now we go to the amp MASTER at maximum PRE-GAIN at maximum, OSC 1 at maximum OSC 2 at 0.525 Okay, and the SUB oscillator is 0.783 And the RING modulator at maximum Change oscillator 2 to a square wave as well Okay now We go to the filter and we drop the CUTOFF to zero okay, we raise the RESONANCE to 0.576 And we drop the envelope generator 2 to 0.341 And now to give it a little bit of character through time, go here to the LFO 2, drop the RATE to 0.56 and now we raise the LFO 2 to 0.203 So it modulates a little bit like that Okay, so now let’s go to the first envelope generator that modulates the amplitude and ATTACK at zero, DECAY at 0.621 SUSTAIN at 0.507 RELEASE at 0.160 Envelope generator 2 – modulating the cutoff: ATTACK at zero, DECAY at 0.393 SUSTAIN at zero, RELEASE at 0.340 Let’s give it just a little bit of reverb and we raise the AMOUNT to 0.130 And raise the DECAY to 0.501 Okay, perfect now, let’s go to the pads And open another DRC on a default patch Okay And first thing what we’re going to do is go to the second oscillator and let’s raise the volume to maximum and FINE tune to 0.184 Okay Now let’s raise PRE-GAIN to maximum and drop the MASTER to 0.777 raise the RING modulator to 0.741 And the NOISE to 0.555 Okay, now let’s go to the modulation page. This modulation page modulates the frequency. we’re gonna modulate only oscillator one with the LFO [AMOUNT] 0.228 Okay like this We changed the mode from a low-pass 4-pole [L4P] to a low-pass 2-pole [L2P] and we drop the CUTOFF to 0.494 Okay, raise the RESONANCE to 0.184 And now on the envelope generator 2 should be 0.5 it’s perfect. So let’s go to the first envelope generator the one modulating the amplitude and raise the the ATTACK to 0.1. DECAY at 1.0 SUSTAIN also at maximum RELEASE at 0.3. And now the second envelope generator that modulates the cutoff ATTACK at zero, DECAY at maximum SUSTAIN at 0.543 And RELEASE at 0.1 Okay, so now let’s go to the reverb and raise the MOUNT to 0.304 And raise the DECAY to 0.831 Okay Last but not least I have here a K7D – our own delay, as a send Basically, what I’m doing is using this preset ‘The Lamp’ which has a 1/8 time division and it has loads of character But mainly I’ve raised the PREAMP to 0.798 so I can get some nice distortion on the pad I’m giving just a little bit on the ARP and on the bass and on the pads, I’m giving it a little bit more. Just gonna open it and bring it to what I said, I would Seven nine eight Okay, and it’s done Let’s now listen to the melody that I’ve recorded before. I’m gonna get this ready. So bear with me just a little second Okay, I think we have everything ready so let’s listen So beautiful I could listen to this for ages. I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial as much as I did We will have new content next week. So if you like this video give us a like or subscribe to us, We will see you again next week.
