S-Layer is the easy button for sound design

Post by dpb » June 17th, 2013, 1:56 pm

This is not a complaint at all :)

It's great for coming up with material to layer in with other stuff. Say you want a sci-fi explosion. You can load in some synthy components mixed with some explosions into a sample map. Start hitting the randomize button and you'll get plenty of cool "happy accidents" that you might not have ever come up with on your own. Alot of it won't be useful but sometimes the results can be really inspiring.

This is a nice tutorial on it and shows how it works. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTa6ODTNGdQ

Looks fantastic! I'm hoping to get my hands on it soon, if I can!

As if I didn't already have enough reasons to pick up NI Komplete 9 Ultimate...the stuff you can do in Reaktor is just crazy. Looks like I'll have to add S-Layer to the purchase list!

Thanks!
