I want to expand myself to the sound effects territory but I am really lost over there in the part of what vst to use or standalone software. Right now I am looking for some sound effects for a simulation game so I don't think that I am going to use anything 8-bit for the moment. I don't know if you actually use synths and then add some other effects. If that its the case I currently own Massive, Modular Moog and FM8.
If you recommend me something else please tell me something that can be very flexible on the sfx so I can go to any type of effect.
Thanks and sorry for my english
Massive is spectacular for creating different types of sounds. I can't say I've used FM8 much, but I can say Massive is great for pretty much anything.
Usually any DAW would do, just make sure it's one that you know and that you're comfortable with. I personally prefer Ableton Live.
Massive can create pretty much *any* type of sound you want. For starters, if you try adjusting the main amp using the first envelope:
Here's a simple image I mocked up on how to adjust just the amplitude.
From Ableton I don't even necessarily have to assign anything from within the program, all those parameters are open to automation outside of Massive
You'll see that's one of many many more parameters that can be automated(with or without ableton). Anything is freakin possible with this thing!
I just recommend taking the time to learn the instrument itself. There's no easy and simple way to get good at something. Don't bother too much with effects before you get a grip on sound dynamics, because otherwise you'll effectively be polishing a turd.
