[Groove3 / Gary Hiebner] Creative Ways to Use Modulation Explained

If you think you’ve heard it all when it comes to modulation effects, think again… Production wiz Gary Hiebner presents an in-depth modulation video course designed to expand your modulation effect knowledge and inspire creativity when using these timeless effects! You’ll learn exciting new applications for both hardware and software based effects like chorus, tremolo, flanger, phaser, and more, complete with audio demonstrations so you can see and hear these ideas in action. These videos are designed for users with a basic familiarity of modulation effects.
Gary kicks things off by briefly covering the types of modulation effects that will be featured in this series, along with some background info on their typical uses. Then it’s down to business, starting with chorus, where you’ll learn how to thicken up sounds, create vocal doubles, and generate new sounds by combining reverb and delay with chorus in unique ways. After that, discover some novel uses for the tremolo effect, such as automating the speed setting and generating rhythmic excitement by syncing various parameters with your DAW tempo.
Next up, explore the various creative applications of a flanger in both slow and fast speed settings, the latter of which is particularly useful on different chord voicings. Then learn similar applications for a phaser.
Many more topics follow, including combining modulation effects (and experimenting with their effect chain order), using modulation effects as send effects (blending the unaffected signal with the effected one), modulating pitch with vibrato, using an autofilter, using a vocoder on drums and vocals, side-chaining modulation effects, and more!
Before you purchase that shiny, newfangled effect plugin in search of inspiration, stop for a second and consider what can be done with the tools you have. With a little ingenuity, these old standby effects can produce a whole plethora of inspired sounds, and this course will show you how.
