You want to know if your music sounds good ? Create an audio cd or add in whatever you use to listen music. 1st put a song of pro quality, then put one of yours, another pro, another yours and so on. Listen. Compare. Now you know what you have to do :) - magmavander   by magmavander

"Polac's Audio In" - so it seems - will not always work properly if you use your track on computers with different sound setups/soundcards and you let it rest in your bmx/bmw ( - for me it recorded but with alot of noise in the background). It seems to be better to put "Polac's Audio In" again into the setup, if you transport your bmx/bmw to another computer for example to record some other instruments or voice. So the "machine" initializes again and you have a great sound without any disturbances or noise ... it then works pretty well ... !   by Buzztler

Hello' You want a speed sensation for a song ? Compose it 10 or 20 bpm under the real bpm you will record the final mix. If you use wave loops, fit them with mathilde tracker command 11 xx so they will be sync at any tempo. Enjoy =)   by zXz

Want smoother interpolation between values? Consider using a higher BPM+TPB. With the enhanced navigation of peer machines, navigation in extremely long patterns is very easy to do within Buzz.   by rami
2009-12-15
Don't forget the keyboard shortcuts! It remains the same in the new versions from this year as well: ctrl+B to highlight the start and end points of a pattern, ctrl+I to interpolate between values... See the Help section for more.   by rami

Use PeerState to make snapshots of a generator and his FX chain, you can in this way store complex presets, recall them by midi, like a normal progam change function.   by tinga

Your ears are disturbing by ET (twelve-tone equal temperament), try Kibibu PeerTune, and of course tunables synths, GreenMilk, WoodOne, EarthPlate, Matilde Tracker 1.9rc1 and play with around 2500 tunings in the presets menu. Just intonation is better for good filtering.   by tinga

If you use BUZZ in liveset and use CTRL+M for muting and unmuting tracks it might be good idea to do a little edit to every song right after it is loaded and playing. You might press CRTL+N mistakely and if there is no edits in a song you end up having blank one in the middle of live situation instead of muting track.. . . This tip might be inaccurate some day if OT makes BUZZ update that changes this behaviour. =)   by yugae

To create wild and crazy drumloops, do this: 1) In the beginning there was sound, so load some percussion samples. 2) Next we need to set up the machines. Add a Groove 1 (optional), a BTDSys peerctrl and a BTDSys stutter (both required). Connect the looper to the master (or route it through other fx). 3) Time to get some weirdness going. Set the Groove 1 to 48 swing. Then, for each track in the stutter (I prefer not to use more than 3 tracks because more just creates cacophony), create an assignment in the peerctrl and link it to '[T] 6: Loop Time' Set slightly different value mappings for each assignment/track, but keep them very very close to the bottom of the drawing area. 4) Ok, we have it all set up, so it's time to edit the stutter patterns. Bring up the pattern editor and enter some 1's and 0's where you want them on some or all tracks. I find it works best when you enter a 0 (off) immediately after each 1 (on) - it keeps the loop neater. When you're done, create a pattern for the Groove 1 and add a 1 in the trigger field. 5) Move to the sequencer and add your sequence(s) for the Stutter and the Groove 1. I usually just paste the Groove 1 pattern all the way down to the end of the song, so when I click elsewhere in the song to play from there, the Groove doesn't trip. 6) Prepare to boogy! Press play! Tip: If you're not satisfied with the loop you've created, tweak the value mappings in the peerctrl. Rok On, Trisky   by Trisky

Setting doubled BPM count (default 4) allows You to do some retrigering in Your songs. But doing this you need to remember that tempo of the song is also doubled, so You need to input all notes with space between (eg. normaly count 4/4 is 4/8 now)   by roon

This is an issue that a lot of users of Buzz 08 are running into. Here is the solution or workaround. machinehead wrote: When i,m using cheapo amp or any other the dialogue box jumps up to the top left hand corner of buzz and becomes unusable. I cannot select it or do anything with it the only option is to delete it Sad Open Buzz. Go to view and click machine view size. Change it to slightly higher values so that you have scroll on the top to bottom and left to right. That fixed it for me for the most part. You may also need to close RAM intensive programs and disable themes and anything under "View - Options" this usually will resolve most issues. In some cases a poor graphics card could be the issue but as long as graphic intensive settings are not used you should be able to resolve it. One more thing to note. You dont have to delete the machine. Hit ALT+F4 to close the machine window. It seems once the machines have been used a little there is less of a problem. Once you get the machine parameter window open and looking like it should. Move it to a different location before closing it. It took a little playing with settings but this is something that can be resolved simply by adjusting settings. It shouldn't take hours either so don't be steered away from the new buzz because it is really magnificent. Take 15 min and find the right settings for your computer (depending on monitor resolution, ram, etc) and you should be up and running problem free.   by sixafterseven

Add a shortcut to your Jeskola Buzz folder on your desktop. It will save a little time when you download a new machine and need to put it in that folder (instead of going Hard Drive->Program Files->Jeskola Buzz).   by Quarry Hill

Don't set volume of particular track in your song using headphones. Always mix your track using speakers. When your song is finished, then use headphones, only to check how it sounds. Headphones are also useful when you would like to check how stereo fading within your song sounds.   by koczo

for funky syncopatic stuff hookup Matilde with a drumloop to the master. Then grab a Jeskola delay (100% wet 0% dry), put a vocoder on it and also connect it to the master. Play with the delay setting and you will have a perfect question/anwer/ying/yang balance between the drumloop and the vocodersound (no overlaps of pulses).   by squezel

have this stupid hiss from recording and noise gates just aren't really cutting it? add a compressor and set the threshold to something low like -50 or -60 dB and the compression ratio to something below 1.0:1 (i usually do something around 0.8:1) not all compressors work below 1:1 compression though. play around those variables, i've gotten good results from it!   by timbot

How to get phat bass in your mix: 1) turn down the volume of all generators 2) gradually turn up the most important track that has bass (like e.g. the bass or the bassdrum) 3) turn up the second most important track that has bass in it, but not so much it takes away the focus of the first track 4) work your way up through the other instruments. Keep making sure the very first track is still easy to hear.   by Joachip
2006-09-26
a good way to get some ghost snares is to add a sample and hold machine like LarsHaKa rIDMa and set it to have like 5% in the reverse and tampler with the other settings like the samples and adjust the volume till it sounds good, i also like to put it onto my hi-hats to get some extra hits in there. you have to play with it cause you can definitly go over board with it B)   by tim-bot

Jazz, pop, acid-jazz, techno, house, hip-hop, magnet-jazz, lounge, laidback, traditional, breakbeat, drum&bass, traditional,... all these semantic distinctions are sophisticated to separate, run up against, oppose the musicians.

CyanPhase?s Krashbox is a excellent effect for Goa and psytrance productions. Take the Evil-Cyborg2 preset and synths or drummachines will create a real cool psychedelic sound. The bluefilter and a delay gives the needed depth.   by Lizard

When creating a song it is always advisable to make more than one copy of this. I.e Songname 1 if you add a nu instrument or effect call it songname 1.1 and so on until the song is finished you can delete them or whatever when you,re finished. This gives you backups all along the song creation process so you don,t lose valuable work   by boombaxx

Is a machine eating a lot of CPU???? Check the debug checkbox in CPU view......   by phonkee4148
2005-11-16
Song writing tip: You're working on a track, and you get an idea in your head for a new sound that would fit perfectly. Instead of adding a new machine to your song to produce the sound, try and think, "how can I create that sound with the unused machines that are already in the song?" This can result in a more coherent song, less CPU use, and more knowledge of how to use Buzz machines.   by wizenwet

Your drum track is more important than you think! I notice a lot of drum tracks are boring and bland. To spice them up a bit, create dynamics by varying the volume levels of each beat or tick in a pattern for every piece of the kit (Snare, Kick, Cymbals, etc...). Also use a few different sounds for each of these (2 or 3 different snare sounds, etc...). By spending a little more time on your drum tracks you'll create a more enjoyable, realistic sound.   by djmin

Chordwizard/McArp by Namdans Fun stuff ! This is the bigger version of buzzhelper. You can do several things here. Again, with or without buzz.exe. You can do everything that buzzhelper can ... transpose, copy, clone, duplicate, etc to machines. But, now you can also create TONS of patterns using chordwizard's little step sequencer (yes it looks like minesweeper :P). You can select from a HUGE listing of keys/scales, and based upon your step sequencers input generate 10s-100s of patterns instantly .. very handy for chord progressions or 'basic' patterns to manipulate in buzz later. Also, you can use your soundcard's midi sounds to preview the patterns/progressions. Thanks namdans, this one is really fun :D Alot of features, i haven't gotten to them all yet ! It also has a wonderfully written .hlp file, with a search function.   by noolout

Buzzhelper by Namdans Handy utility, that will treat your buzz files outside of buzz. You can have buzz open or not. Here you can, transpose, copy, clone, duplicate, multiply, remove machines. Its a scaled down version of chordwizard/McArp.   by noolout

If u want Clean Drum Loops or Drum Hits make this line up: EQ+Compressor+Cheapo Stimulaion (not need to edit this efx) Also edit EQ and Compressor u want Cheapo Stimulation Not need to edit simply connect to the end of the line....peace Fanta/Hotelsinus.com   by hotelsinus

Instead of a cheapo amp or a volume sliding effect to mute or break up part of a song, try using a ringmod or similar modulation effect. Many of these (Kazuya sinemod, 11-OX, etc) have note input, and also let you cancel out the effect altogether. The note input gives the added possibility to produce, for example, a bass line that only comes in when the volume cuts out.   by wizenwet

when making glitchy drums, it never hurts to doctor your samples beforehand. Make your samples longer by combining them with other samples. Then turn the note cut command (0B in unwieldy tracker) on and off for interesting effects.   by wizenwet
2005-07-26
For an interesting noise hi-hat, try putting your drum tracks into a reverb with a hi-pass filter in it and the output of that into an volume envelope like Zephods ADSR. Make the reverb really wet, long, and high and the envelope short with little or no attack. Trigger the envelope for your hi-hats.   by wizenwet

Here's a new tip: 1) Make a one life pattern for each generator or note based effect. 2) Put a note off message for each channel (except for HD Monster Kick, that will crash the program). 3) Use this pattern insetead of "mute" in the sequencer . This does two things 1) You can avoid bursts caused by muting and unmuting. 2) Most patterns that end with a sustained note can be shortened so that they don't have to include the note off in the pattern. 3) You can easily stop, start and double check to make sure everything is off without having to go to the pattern window.

If you ever wondered what the hell is the parameter "Thevfactor" in FSM Philty, try to do this: use high cutoff (near 150-160) and resonance (over 170) use 2L FrontFlt type, high modulation values, LFO shape:weird. NOW change "Thevfactor": you'll hear lots of difference! There is a technical explanation of this: think to have lo cut and hi res, high v factor values smooth the resonance! This is extremely useful when you have hi mod values, and cutoff goes up & down...   by flos

*^*^TIPS FOR GREAT SOUNDFONT USAGE^*^*^ 1.) DO NOT use Rout Soundfont loader, instead use the external VST-based soundfont loader named "SFZ" which can be found at: "http://www.rgcaudio.com/sfz+.htm" BTW, IT'S FREE...! 2.) Within the SFZ's GUI interface, set the "polyphony" count to around "6" or so (since it's rare to voice more than 6 notes simultaneously on any one particular instrument.) 3.) Within the SFZ's GUI interface, set the "quality" number to at least "16" if you are using an soundfont witha lot of high harmonic content. 4.) Use REVERB in every song, and set a similair (but not necessarily the exact same) parameter settings for each instrument loaded. This makes the instruments sound more realistic, as if they were all played from within the same room.   by djdorian

To get much more crispness out of your highs (ie, high hats, etc.) use a Glow Sidfilter to run a high pass on them. Set the Low Pass to 0% and the High Pass to 100% and then play with the cutoff until you're happy with it. I would suggest taking high hats up to at least 1200 hz.   by earthdeuley
2004-06-05
Limiting only goes so far. The more complex your song is, the more you make things modulate, the more you will find yourself programming volume of some sort. When things sound interesting, try and listen to subtleties, program volume peeks to bring out appealing sounds and dips to even things out. PeerCtrl is useful here as well.   by wizenwet

To adjust drum loops to fit with your BPM, simply hook up a MTrk to the master, and also to a CyanPhase recorder. Use function 11 (Loop fit) to make the loop sound right. You may need to fiddle with this to get it right (maybe using offset, etc.) Set the Recorder to record the length you need, and save it to the wavetable. There you go, a perfect loop fit everytime. This allows for more effects in the Mtrk as you don't have to use loopfit Matt   by Maff83

On many machines it's useful to use only high byte portions of four digit numbers. Many times, things that can be randomized by using Ctrl+R then need to be "quantized" by removing the zeros from the ten's and one's column. Also essential when working with loops.   by wizenwet

" Everything needs EQ. Cut is better than boost. - edsca" Not necesarily true. If something sounds fine in the mix without EQ, then leave it alone, you'll probably end up making it sound worse. Yes, cutting is always preferred over boosting, but EQing is just like the laws of physics, for every actions there is an equal and opposite reaction. You boost a set of frequences, all the others go down and vice versa.   by quartz76

If that still doesn't work (and if you are on XP), hit ctrl+alt+delete to monitor your cpu usage. After loading each sound-font, the percentage of usage fluctuates to around 100%. Just wait until that percentage drops and then load the next sound-font. No more crashing with XS-1 songs!   by solarian

The best way to learn is to read the manual and play the examples that come with Buzz. Trying to figure it out yourself will only give you a headache. You won't remember how to do things better or you become acustom to learning on your own if you try to figure it out for yourself. Reading the manual first is the way to go!   by piranha

When you change panning positions during the song (eg. for strong left/right movements of sounds), don't place the panning machine after a delay - it will sound highly unnatural when the delay is panned, too. Pan, then delay, it will sound much more natural "roomy". -nD   by neurodancer

reducing stereo width and reverb/delay effects can often make your track "pump" more. Rymix stereobox is good for reducing stereo width, just play with the "width" setting. Reducing the stereo width also means that your tracks will probably sound better on mono sound systems.   by scottyp

To synth pretty realistic arctic howling wind effects: Make a continous pattern of noise using a generator with the highest frequency range cut off (e.g. using Noise XP), run it through a bunch of KFlangers with different settings, and finally run all flangers through the Arguru Wazzup set to LP mode and play around with the Glide, Scale and VCF_Reso settings.   by djkeso

When using machines that generate infinite/long sounds or loops, like pads, don't use 's in the sequence editor to cut them off. This can cause bursts (ARGH!), or if they're reverbed/delayed, add some unwanted sound the next time the instrument is triggered. Instead, add one extra tick (ie, if you're using 32 tick patterns, make them 33), and add note-offs to all tracks. They (the note-offs) won't be triggered if another pattern is placed directly afterwards in the sequence, but will turn off the sound automatically, saving you the trouble of remembering to mute your pads. -RDESkid   by rdeskid

Are you into tribalism?? Are you the guy in the eternal search of that live recorded percussion loop to make your tribal track? If you can't have it just get a percussion drumkit (using drum machines or drum samples), work it on Buzz set at 16 TBP or more, place the main beats and then start adding beats in random ticks variating tone and volume. Crack your head on that a while and soon you'll have your own signed percussion solo (with some emulated human imperfection in it)! Just add some drum room reverb, sample it and you're done!   by djstein

Tired of samples getting cut off by other samples in Maltide Tracker? Tired of using eight tracks to fit in all your samples? Right click, go to attributes, and set "enable virtual channels" to "1".

To avoid crashes while using a PeerChord, make shure you fill in the sample numbers in the first pattern your assigned sampler is going to be playing (Ie. the PeerChord will play). If you leave out this information in the sampler, and the PeerChord is told to play, the sampler will crash. But you only have to fill out the first tick of each track to define it for the while track.   by pellarin

Want to give your sounds a subtle human voice texture? Grab Firesledge's ParamEQ and put some relatively high-Q/low bandwidth boosts (somewhere between 4 and 8 should do) on frequencies between 1000 and 2000 Hz--try until you find some that work, though listen hard when you experiment coz the effect is quite subtle!

You can make a network of rIDMa machines for a nice sample-making effect chain. Hook one up after your main effect chain, send that to two or three rIDMa's, send each of those to two or three more. . . as much as your computer can handle. In addition, you can place effects between these network "nodes" for more insanity.

To spice up your melody lines don't hesitate to use volume and vibrato, even barely noticeable changes can morph your melody from a decent one to a great one. Use small volumes change on each notes to give your melody a more human feel and use drastic volumes change on key notes. Add vibrato on long notes but stay subtle, if you emphasize everything you may loose the whole point of your melody. Some machines have a glide effect included, use it on transitionnal notes to make things flow in a smoother way. To see how melodies are done don't hesitate to listen to your CDs; especially vocals; and notice the importance of rhythm in a melody and big interval leaps but also the less obvious importance of repetitions, silences and variations. And the golden rule : trust your ears only :) unless you're a talent of nature, music theory can only help you in sounding cheesy and/or overused, especially when it comes to melody lines. Use scales to start your melodies if you have difficulties to find inspiration and then throw away all your theory papers and continue with your ears only. Music theory is of a good help though when you want to accompany your melodies with good chord progressions, but only when the melodies are over ;p   by Zk

Here's a tip for fine tuning your mixing effects (ie, compressor, eq, reverb, etc): close your eyes when you're adjusting a paramter slider.

Original TB-303 fills it's memory with random patterns when the batteries are taken out of it and put back. Some old acid house tracks have born this way. You can simulate this by making an empty pattern in any of the fine 303 style gens and randomizing the note column and the accent columnand the slide column with ctrl+r. It's not the same as a real TB-303 (the note range is too wide) but you can get some really wicked sounds like that.   by Elektroj?nis

If using Creative Lab's ASIO drivers in buzz, you may have found one of the most useful machines, the Whitenoise Looper goes to shit - plays samples incorrectly.

this works especially well for effects like EQ and reverb, though useful for all: hold your mouse down on the parameter you want to change, then CLOSE YOUR EYES while you adjust it back to forth. adjust it till it sounds good to you. this sounds weird, but i've found it works better since it forces you to rely on your ears, instead of your eyes trying to tell you what they think is good.   by hartboy

Occasionally you will need a slight gain from a machine to the master, but the basic gain is already the entire way up. Instead of adding a gain effect, chain it to another random effect. This gives you the slight boost you need, and can make for some nice fx! -www.muzeriter5.bigstep.com

for a VERY interesting & full sound, put in a Q Piano (phys modeling) through a 11-Delay directly to master.. now, on the 11-delay, set the mode to "ring" and play around with the Dry/Wet sliders.. for the piano, try ranges of C-4 to F-5 and others of course.. look at the waveshape, not what you expected, huh?

Phatten up a sampled loop or breakbeat using filters as a crossover! Use two filters (Jeskola Filter2 works well), set one to HP and the other to LP. Adjust the frequencies so you have the "thump" in one filter and the rest of the sound in the other. Now you can process them separately. Try adding reverb, chorus, or delay to the highs, and distortion, compression, or gating to the lows. Take those skinny mono beats to a new level! Lykwyd Chykyn

Bored with the same old sounds? Try making cool news ones out of your old ones by running them through these effects: Krashbox for a crazy, lofi. indo/aphex twin sound; asymetric for some wierd noises; scrapman; wazzup; and of course sprayman. Have phun! -Jynx

If you have the 'debug' box checked while the CPU monitor is open you can cut down on effects/generators unneccesarrily eating up valuable CPU % when a song isn't playing after you've stopped it. For real! -Jynx

Prefix all your generators with an &. this will underline the first letter of the machine in machine mode and place all the machines first in the pattern mode

Song won't load? Try starting with a blank song and 'importing' your dud song into it (right click in sequencer mode). You might be lucky

You can get a cool sound effect with the Matilde tracker using the old school "arpegiate" effect (effect 00) over different samples. Try in on vocal bits for fun. -Jynx

To make a dull drumpattern/drumloop sound BIG, connect the drum(loop)machine to a JLimit. Set the input gain to a high value, the threshold to 0, and the release to something 'round 50 ms. Connect this to the Master (or a reverb, if you like). Also connect the plain, unmodified signal, and lower it's volume a bit. Big-Beat Style! (Esp. great with drumloops that contain a lot of cymbals! : Frambooz

Get a superb sizzle/rattlesnake sound: Start with Jeskola Noise Generator (Attack low, everything else max), add Geonik's Gapper (Length 0.5 Ticks, Floor -8.0 dB), Geonik's 2p Filter, (Highpass, max CutOff, 80-90% Hi Resonance, no Lo Resonance), Jeskola Filter 2 (Type 0, Cutoff 27, no Resonance), and Geonik's Resonator (max Frequency, Resonance 0.088). Add delay and reverb to taste. -kal
2002-04-12
Always add reverb after you finish a song! Leave your machines connected to Master as they are, add Jeskola Freeverb, connect *everything* to it and set Dry Out off, HF Damp 127, Pre Delay 0ms. Rev Time should be low (0-10). -kal

To get simple, 100% stereo separation out of mono sound, pan your mono generator full left. Add a plain delay @ 5ms, dry-out off, pan it full right and lower the volume on your generator to even it out. Play with the amount of delay to get the sound you want.

Do you like DIRT? Put Ynzn's Click'n'Pop into an AuxBus Send, rightclick on the Send and go to Set Channel, click on "Set Input" to make bus 1 go to AuxSend. THEN, get Ynzn's Remote Gate and rightclick on it to make bus 1 go to RemGate. Set the gate to short attack and release and anything you put through it gets cut up into tiny bits!

Zephod's blue filter is a great alternative to phase shifting and can add lots of stereo depth to a track. Try the vocal filters on percussion loops, pads, or the delay send of a lead-- Lykwyd Chykyn
2002-04-12
Add the FSM Tuna pitch shifter after a delay with the dry out off. Change the pitch of the delayed signal with the pitch shifter. Change it around and you can get some great added effect. -Focalized-

Use the VKR Granular Synth to get really twisted sounds. Use a sampled loop or any sound, really and experiment. Slowing it down and adding lots effects is great for abstract songs. -Focalized-

Mute machines on emty patterns it saves some cpu power- somax
2002-04-12
Don't edit the Csynth while the song is playing. Stop the song and edit the sounds. Reason is that the machine may spread som ugly noise through yout speakers. If that accures, press F12, Save the song, Quit BUZZ, Restart BUZZ and load the song.

Want some ol' scool sound of a vinyl record? Use the ZuTube for these special moments . . .
2002-04-12
Want thumpy scales? Go to the top of a pattern in the note track, insert a note. Go to the bottom of the pattern in the note track, insert another note. Mark the note track and press CTRL+I. Should sound good.
2002-04-12
Like funky guitar? Use the FSM WhaPro conected to another FSM WhaPro. Change the Wha effects for both the FSM WhaPro. Make 'em different, that shits wild!
2002-04-12
Do u like C64 samples? Use the Tracker with only one track, load the samples that you want. Connect the Tracker to the Degrader and change the frequency to about 8000. You don't need to buy a C64 anymore!
2002-04-12
Don't route your machines one after the other. Eg. use delay as a "side chain" with both the delay and the generator connected to the master (or whatever). Set "dry thru" silent - and add effects to the delay ONLY (like running the delay thru a Cheap negative!). Allows fine volume adjustments for the delay part as well. -nD
2002-04-12
Tired of boring echo?s? Then fire up the Ninja Delay AND run it through the FSM-Phatman! Do this for all stuff of melodies, vocals etc. ... it sounds GENIOUS! ;-) -=sonicflash=-

you know you can right click on the infector and make your own waveforms? - Hamster Alliance-

To groove up your drums a bit plug 'em into an Expression2 and tweak it abit depending on the frequencies you want to come thru. Also try program the EQ-3 low and high frequencies to get some more groove.
2002-04-12
connect to a voidbass 2 to a hiiri, set the filter to 2x(hp or lp), maximize the resonance and then tweak the filter while letting the hiiri play notes

In WhiteNoise's KickSyn, presets with a number after them reflect the number of tracks you should have. Each is a different drum. However, if you like drum 1 from preset X and drum 2 from preset Y, and preset X is only one track, chose preset Y, then preset 1, then save as a new preset. Viola, a new two drum preset with both drums. Play and enjoy. -Undoc-

Most underrated machine #1: Arguelles "Alpha" - wonderful for all kinds of smooth pads/voices/strings/chords! -nD
2002-04-12
Got any songs that just won't load because of screwed machines? (eg C1). Just get a blank song and 'import' your broken song. Should work most of the time! :)
2002-04-12
Rout's "Split" isn't as useless as stated in the doc - use it before connecting a mono-out generator into the Cheapo Negative (ch.neg being one of the most important effects ever!) -nD
2002-04-12
Spooky x-files sound: Noise generator -> a4pfilter with resonance to 20 and cutoff between 300 and 600 -> add reverb and lower gain. Now you can play notes by varying the cutoff of the a4pfilter!!! real cool sound.
2002-04-12
When adjusting the panning, remember that the left hemisphere of the brain is the hemisphere of logic and linear and the right one, the non-linear; the hemisphere of dreams! ;>

Matilde Trackers crashes Buzz ? First set midi-chan + wave attributes, load wave in table and only after this, you can touch your midi-keyboard.

Put a BassDrum + Chimps Fxor with 100 to 250 freq. this will make a crazy sound! huauhahuahu by F?bio FesTeR (Brasil)

Run a Noise generator thru a Expression 2 to give it a whoosy filtered sound. then run it through a harmonic delay and use it to control the notes, makes an intresting synth :) - The Hamster Alliance-

The Breaker is you friend...works great for rearanging vocals, sampled instument riffs, and old Ft2 sweep samples you might have. - The Hamster Alliance-

Rout Soundfont Loader is a great tool for importing some fresh sounding samples into buzz. Soundfonts are actively traded around the net and there is wide selection of instruments and sound effects in the .sf2 format. To use it, just load it up on the machine window, then right click on it and choose "load...". Then right click again and choose "info on preset" to figure out what bank and patch number you will input in the pattern editor.

ershihat + DF Filter with C parameter to the max + FSMChorus -DjCiccio
2002-04-12
Fed up with programming rhythm variations ? Well, Whitenoise's PROBABILITY DRUMMER is the answer! Just trigger your MAIN beat drums with a probability trigger of FE, then any FILL bits you can add with a smaller probability (the CTRL+R randomize function is good for this). And there you go! Infinite variations from just ONE drum pattern. PHENOMENAL! (giNgko_C)
2002-04-12
For trancey sounds, filter, gate, chorus, then split to 2 slighly offset delays panned seperatly to add stereo depth.
2002-04-12
For that crazy u-ziqesque screwed up drum sound, use Arguelle's Pro2 as the tracker and play with the timestretching and filters. Fun stuff, yo.
2002-04-12
explored the great about dialog in buzz already? :)
2002-04-12
When composing with buzz, do not use headphones. Random noise bursts can cause serious ear damage :)
2002-04-12
If you are bored with the usual snaredrums for the drumloops try using a hihat, lower the pitch to C-3 f.x. and add a lowpass filter. :) Shaman
