Voting thread https://www.thefretboard.co.uk/discussion/184704/voting-for-softsynth-challenge-1?new=1
I often don't get a chance to really learn a certain sound library or softsynth before I get distracted and move onto something else. This is the unfortunate result of option overload, i.e. having too much software. So I've set myself the challenge over the next 3 weeks to work with one synth, and one synth only to compose the majority of my music. This month's candidate is the CMI V, Arturia's simulation of the CMI Fairchild. https://i.postimg.cc/QCX4jX9X/cmi-v-image.png
Your challenge, should you choose to accept: choose one softsynth or sound library. You don't have to stick to just that instrument, but it should form the core sound of your song. Explore every function, and automate the parameters in a musical way. Ideally choose something quite complex (incidentally the CMI seems quite straightforward but i'm going to challenge myself further with Zebra next month.)
Even if what you produce is shite it doesn't matter - just get to know how it all works. Then on the 1st July, post one of your tracks to this thread.
