The Super Triangle
I know a lot of people when they think of producing trance the first thing that comes to there mind is firing up a supersaw waveform in there synth or programming a supersaw to play the melody of your lead synth. Yes its very common to think of only the saw and square when thinking of trance and techno. One waveform a lot of people are overlooking is the triangle wave form.
So do yourself a favor and go into your daw or your synth and change the waveform on some of your tracks to triangle and see what it sounds like. Youd be surprised as how it sounds just as good as a saw. While your at it try to use a sine waveform too. Sines sound great for dark or somber trance.
I went ahead and made some examples for you to hear what im talking about below.
In the next few days I will give you different examples ,from some of my other tracks to show you what you can achieve by using a triangle waveform instead of using a saw for everything.
If you been producing for a while you will know this already but,remember this is for newbies. So listen to my examples below and share your examples too in the comments section.
The first example is just a short riff say maybe 25 bars or so of a 8 bar loop I looped a few times so you could hear the character and feel of the triangle.
So think outside the box and use some other waveforms beside the saw for trance and youll be surprised as to what you can actually achieve.
I will be looking for your video and audio responses.
