Hey i listen to a lot of trance/techno stuff on here and i was wondering what people use to give their music an airflow effect. I've always wondered how people do that. Would appreciate it.Hi,
Many thanks - Tilkanuts
It's an old post, but my company (AudioGaming) has created recently a VST about wind sound generation.
I hope it can help someone.
Isn't advertising generally frowned upon here? Anyways, so I'm actually adding something here...
There's loads of stuff you can do with White Noise. Get a band pass/low pass filter and set it's frequency to pretty low, play around with the resonance, and you can get a desert-like wind without any samples or VST's. Give it an LFO to add some movement and you're golden. Explosions are just White noise with a very fast attack and long release on a filter Envelope; You can get a rumbling Nuclear Blast-ish effect by doing the opposite and fading it in. Thuds and Thumps are just White noise with a filter cutoff envelope around the 100-ish frequencies.
That "SWOOOSHING" effect you hear in trance is easy to do, just get white noise and Automate a filter; It can be low-pass, band pass, High pass, whatever.
All of these are just a few examples, there's plenty more sounds you can get. I'm not being very specific here because there is a lot of room for tweaking, and it's been a while since I last used these in any manner. Experimenting with Noise is key, and I recommend you play around with it every once in a while to see what sounds you can get out of it.
