Groove3 Cradleapps The Prince Explained TUTORIAL
If you’ve heard a hit by Drake, The Weeknd, Taylor Swift, or James Blake over the past decade, you’ve likely heard the work of producer Frank Dukes. And with The Prince, Cradleapps has brought his sound to the masses in the form of an incredible new virtual instrument. Join studio expert Thomas Cochran for a deep look at the sounds, features, and playability of this softsynth with this in-depth The Prince video tutorial. These videos are for new users of The Prince.
Thomas first welcomes you to the course and gives an overview of the instrument’s layout and structure, including the browser and preset management features, so you’ll know how to quickly try out some of the outstanding presets available right away. Then learn about the Source controls, which allow for pitch adjustment, detuning, and glide. Next, explore the Filter and Amp sections, both of which offer enormous control over the sound’s timbre and volume envelope.
Then discover how the LFO can add movement and dynamic motion to your patches in various ways. Thomas dives into the Effects section after this, which consists of five extremely usable modules – noise, distortion, chorus, delay, and reverb – all of which greatly enhance the sound design possibilities of the instrument. Wrap up the tutorial by following along as Thomas demonstrates how to build two patches from scratch (keys and bass), implementing sound layering, adding effects, creating custom modulations, and more.
The Prince is an excellent creative tool for those who don’t want or need to get deep into the bowels of synthesis but still want expressive, powerful sound design tools.
