Want to learn how to program your own Trance Pads sounds?
Tired of not knowing how to tweak your presets to get your desired sound?
Want to see how different layers of Trance Pads are created?
Want to see how to mix different layers of pads for a nice dynamic sound?
Frustrated with not knowing what ADSR shape to use with your pads?
Welcome to the second Sylenth1 Sound Design Tutorial.
In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to create your own Trance Pads sounds from scratch. I’ll be going over in a great amount of detail the different types of Trance Pads such as Sub Pads, Phased Pads, Saw Pads, Top/Texture Pads, Gated Pads & Multi-Layer Pads.
If you have ever felt like you want to stop using presets because you want full control of the outcome, then this tutorial will equip you with the tools to produce some epic pads for your tracks.
I’ll be taking you through the step by step methods that I use to create Trance Pads sounds and explaining to you in-depth what each parameter such as the ADSR, Filters, Oscillators, Mod Envelopes, LFO’s, MISC & Effects are doing, so that you understand how the sound is being built, but more importantly why I’m doing what I am doing.
⬤ How to create Trance Sub Pads, Phased Pads, Saw Pads, Top/Texture Pads, Gated Pads & Multi-Layer Pads.

Really enjoying these sound design courses. Not only for the creating sounds from scratch element, also getting a deeper understanding every time of how the parts of this synth work. Having the ability to take sounds already in Sylenth1 and make them more suited to my track. The possibilities definitely seem endless armed with this information. Exciting times and sounds ahead.
