    Deeeeeeeeeeep stabs
    I personally would love a tutorial on how to make really unique deep stabs to fit into house productions. I have been working away at trying to get it right but haven't managed to come up with anything satisfactory yet that has the depth and weight that I am looking for. Anybody have any suggestions, or is there a possibility of a tutorial about it?

    Not really my expertise... however they seem to be best achieved by loading up two or more synths (in different channel strips) -give them all a very sharp attack, a quick filter sweep and some very spacious reverb. Trigger then all at the same time (by putting them all into record) hit a note and... there you go!

    Hi OlavB (this name sounds familiar...) did you check OBasoski' s sound design tutorial here on macprovideo.com? That' s simply godsend. I' ve always loved Basoski' s music, and after I ' ve seen he is helping out other people and sharing his knowledges I respect him so much not only musically, but from a human point of view as well. anyway - come on jabz! tell us what kind of sound you are actually after!!! great comunity, great tutorials, great trainers. I am so glad i found this place)

    [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EFNXcckWz8[/url] well, while we wait for Jabz I would like someone to help me recreate these deep stabs that we can hear on this soul minority' s remix. The stab I am talkin about starts at min 2.22 in this youtube link. Tough at first glance they sound really standard - saws - the way they are mixed makes them sound amazaing (especially if you hear it on a nice file instead of youtube). They are BIG, WIDE, but at the same time not to heavy and they dont "eat" all the other elements in the track. There is a really sweet reverb, and the adsr settings make sound the stab a bit percussive; but again, not too much.... I would really appreciate if someone could help me on this, especially mixing-wise. tks!

    Jabz, As a tip: Check out a fairly old sample CD by a Swedish outfit called e-lab; X-tatic Goldmine 3. There you will find some good garage, and other, chords (those "Inner City/Chicago/Detroit" style house stabs). Of course, there are many other sampling CD:s out there, but as a good starting point.
