Synth Snackables: Legowelt - Peak: three-oscillator harmonics // Novation

Published on Apr 30, 2020 NovationTV

"Our Synth Snackables series invites you into the studios of talented and knowledgeable artists, and shows you staple tips, elaborate techniques and imaginative approaches for synth patch design.

For our first Synth Snackable session, we spent a day with Dutch artist Legowelt whose vast musical style spans many different worlds – some real, some imagined – and is designed in a unique and captivating way that keeps his listeners enthralled. His wealth of production knowledge and experience have been turned into five quick tips to help you push the boundaries of Peak.

In this video, Legowelt highlights an essential synth tip for creating harmonic sounds, he starts by detuning each oscillator pitch with the coarse function to create a minor triad. By simply playing other keys polyphonically and opening the sound up with envelopes, he creates a deep dreamy soundscape.

'I haven’t even changed the waveforms and the Peak has an amazing amount of waveforms.' Legowelt shows how you can add richness and depth to the chord by changing the waveforms of the oscillators and adding LFO. He also demonstrates a more advanced tip that involves detuning two oscillators so that they play discretely – an effective way to simulate acoustic instruments and add harmonic character.

Watch all five tips:
