How To Make - Ambient with Bluffmunkey / 1400

Ambient with Bluffmunkey

View Course

We’re slowing the tempo down…, Ok - we’re basically removing it completely this week and welcome back Bluffmunkey for a lesson in all things emotive and blissful as he looks at How to Make Ambient.

A very different type of course and style of music that focuses more on feelings than getting hands in the air. We check out some of the synths, effects and libraries used, building our sound palette, and how we can keep the listener interested with evolving textures, samples, and modulation.

Dim the lights, get comfy and check it out!

glass, kraftwerk, enigma?

excellent content as always - a particular thanks for bringing State Azure to my attention.
I have no issues with video streaming, in fact now that Sonic Academy have changed servers I am getting better play back across the site.

Enjoyed this one. Was nice to hear about the approach/inspiration.

I am really learning a lot with this course. I know it is a silly question, but I am asking anyway, where can I find that ANA 2 HK Arp Pluck Preset?
Thank you

It’s a Preset from this expansion Presets Pack : ANA 2 Presets Volume 12 - Progressive Trance

Hope this helps ! :wink:

Tutorial 12: “… before adding an organic ‘Duduk’ flute element.”
The duduk is not a flute but an (Armenian) oboe with a double reed of about 10 cm as mouthpiece.
Regardless - a tutorial that appeals to me.
