Re: Pads?

Check out the demos for the DCP library “Air” in the motif mart’s “Voice Libraries” section. It is a dedicated “pad” library.

Re: Pads?

The best way to start learning to create your own pads is to begin with one of the existing pad sounds in the Motif, any one that is “closer” to the kind of pad you want. Experiment by changing waveforms in the elements, adjusting filter cutoff and delays and reverb effects.

Re: Pads?

Pads have a lot of different uses. One problem I have with so many of the available pad sounds is excessive motion and/or ‘thickness’ that produces a muddy sound if too many notes are allowed to build. I often use pads behind an EP or piano voice, and find that FM8, a software synth, works the best for me because you can easily adjust the polyphony of the voice you are using. If you use the preset 8 operator poly, most pads decay away perfectly behind a keyboard passage when sustain is being used. I wish we could adjust the poly on Motif.

When you talk about programming pads, take a look at Silverlake. This is a 4 element voice on Motif ES that I use a lot as well. The motion is on element 4, while other features of the voice can be found on the other elements. Element 1 is a simple sound that works great behind keyboard passages and is all you need in a lot of situations.

The use of multiple elements and assigning the physical controllers to different voice altering functions is a key to developing Pad style voices. Silverlake is again a great example. The are so many unique pad sounds contained within that one voice. All it takes is the use of the physical controllers to get the most out of them.

Re: Pads?

well,for now biggest problem I have is that pads themself have a big attack time,and they need time to develop,and this is not kind that I need in particular song...but when I shorten their attack,they become boring…
