Last days i talked with some producer that i like, and for my surprise they composed and produced most of his tracks on a software, but the sound they achieve was more warm,punchy, dirty and rough in some cases....

what techniques do u use to make a kick,bass,synth and etc sound more like analog than digital when u produce on a digital software?........

i like to mess around with bit depth, saturation, and i try to use good emulations of synths.......

anything by psp seems to be a good shout in the vst realm. vintagewarmer is nice.

of course reprocessing through anything analog/external can be good... can route it back to your computer so it's still "in the box" right?

thanks, yeah! nice!

could you please if you know, recommend some analog compressors/eqs/preamps that gives a colour to the sound?

FMR RNLA is nice, small, cheap enough. you can get a lot of colour through any old tape deck - that would be my first shout for sure.

if you have cash to burn you can get a culture vulture.

Leave it up to mastering, find something you can have fun expressing yourself on.

Hi motoperpetuo:

Using Low Pass filters is a good start, you can specify the cut off point to edge out hi frequencies. 'Warmth' in a musical sense is a quite subjective but If all your synth sounds are coming from within the box, you can stick an EQ on all of them and set it to a Low Pass filter. if you need more 'air' you can then boost INTO that filter but the cut off point will act as a 'barrier' from nasty hi end harmonics getting through and those, once accumulated, interfere with a lot of things. So round things off with filters, use a spectrum analyzer to see where your parts naturally roll off and adjust accordingly.

Across your 2buss, you can also apply a filter - a low pass and set it to something like 16 or 17k at 6 or 12db per 8ve. You can experiment with this but I can't hear above that so I'm happy about there personally. And then any 2buss eq you have you can use a bell curve INTO that filter to get air if need be.
