In This Lesson: How to use the Maelstrom (from the ground up).
Your initial sound will be created by an Oscillator. Use OSC A, and OSC B (If you wanted a second Oscillator) to help create your first sound. I recommend de-activating all the other audio units within Maelstrom to help you get a better feel for what your initial Oscillator sounds like.
The Shaper is mainly used to get distortion out of your oscillators.
Filter A is identical to filter B, except it is placed farther along in the signal chain, making it useful to filter the sounds that you have ALREADY filtered.
The Filter Envelope has ADSR settings, as well as an "AMT" (AMOUNT) knob for mixing. The only additional tool is the "INV" button.
I've never found this filter envelope to be particularly useful, but it's there if you want to try and work it.
The modulations in Maelstrom are both very similar to LFO's. They work in a very very similar fashion
My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
