Trifonic: Making Pads with Spectral Dronemaker

3 Jul

In this video, Brian demonstrates how to make excellent pad sounds using the free spectral processing plug-in Spectral Dronemaker by composer Michael Norris.

Spectral Dronemaker is one of Trifonic’s favorite tools, and (as Brian discusses) it was used most recently to create sounds for their remix of Hybrid’s track Can You Hear Me.

    Any recommendations on similar software for PC?

  • Rafal Borowiec

    Thanks a lot Brian! :)

  • Mitch

    Seconded. I'd really like to get in on this, but I'm running W7.

  • Denis

    Hi guys! Try this one:
    Use “SuperSoft” preset for a start.

    Thank you Denis! I am also on PC.

    nice one, thanks. never really understood this plugin before, have used it to death, but now it makes sense.

  • Ezzy2517

    Can somebody shed light on how to install this please?

  • briantrifon

    Drag the components into the library/audio/Plug-ins/components folder. Then they should show up in any audio unit compatible program.

  • briantrifon

    Great! Yeah I love this bundle, surprised it is so under the radar!

  • briantrifon

    No problem :)

  • briantrifon

    Thanks Denis! I'll have to check out the mac version too.

    Another suite that is worth checking out for both PC/Mac folks is the GRM plug-ins. They are very useful, stable and time tested spectral fx

    Also on mac check out Soundhack and Spear.. craziness!
