Synth Wobbly effect
« on: December 16, 2014, 08:55:31 PM »
Hi there.
I was wondering if someone could guide me on how to create this synth wobbly effect, what filters, etc.? I know it can be applied not just to synth but to other samples, etc..

It's Jon Jenkins, A Word with the Vine here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VIQ6rfqDJE

The effect starts around :57 seconds into the video.

Any help to guide me on creating this effect would be most appreciated it. Thanks..

I'm sorry....It must be a U.S. region thing only since that's the official youtube site for Jon Jenkins, but here's CdBaby's website for him. Just go to Track 8 and you will hear the wobbly effect...

Video fine to view in the UK.

I think it could be a tremelo type effect, like as on a rhodes. You might want to try the demo of 'Lounge lizard' to see if that's the case:

I created an almost identical sound by feeding a guitar-like synth sound
through a phaser then into a tremelo effect and adjusting them a bit.

I'd imagine the Jenkins guy could get that sound by sending a fairly clean
electric guitar through a multi-effect pedal that has both phaser and tremelo effects.

The tremelo, as Pete suggested, is the main wobbly part.

Take care.

Yeah, I would guess that it's a sine or triangle wave LFO controlling a filter with a bit of resonance.
