Noisia Studio Tutorial: Foundations (with Mefjus)

Noisia uses detuned synth sounds to create tension. You could use these in an introduction, building to the climax of the track.

MCombMB & MFreqShifterMB plugins by Melda, on many of the synths for creative processing. These plugins add a layer of interest onto the synths, which vary throughout the track.

It’s easy to fill a song with sounds and try to make everything sound exciting, but often showing restraint is the best practice to create space and focus. This approach is in sharp contrast to a path many artists walk by showing off hundreds of sounds simultaneously.

Often, layering in a hi-hat sitting on top of the kick drum to help it cut through the mix.
