Hey Members .

Im totally into Drone/Experimental Techno.
I'm just curious how you guys do your Drone sounds. Any special Plug in? I mean you probably can do with every Synth some Drone stuff but is there any special Synth you are into . ?

I recently bought me the MMO-3 Drone Synth.. its a handmade Synth , i love it so far .Very cool Features in this box

Drones are more about fx than synths. Any synths plus delay, reverbs, filters. Comb filters in particular. I prefer to use contact mics to get interesting drones.

Just had a look at those video's.
Sorry, wasn't impressed.
Don't even understand why one would need a synth specifically to make drones.
As Void said above, you can make drones with anything.
All you need is, preferably, a nice sound source to start with, or otherwise a synth with lots of little modulations going on, and then you go crazy with FX.

If you're using Live, I can recommend you a certain Phaser preset that came with the Live 8 library called "Great Buddha", it creates wonderful bellish overtones from time to time. Lovely for all kind of ambient stuff... ;)

everyone knows i guess that you need a lot of fx, delay , reverb , modulation going on to create some drone sounds. There are different synths , plug ins , yes even effects .Some are unique and has this special sound going on.
Some use guitars, some field recordings, which effect chain you got going on.??

just curious about those facts .

Its not the fact that you need a special synth to make a special sound .You can take all your sounds from the computer but thats not what i love:)

Maybe u are not into the that genre of music Hades ;)
some people might understand why to want a drone synth :)

So straight up, i don't really listen to drone music, nor do i use hardware (which seems to be what your gearing towards). I can appreciate it to warm up a club, otherwise, not my cup of tea. But i do make drone textures for the atmosphere in my tracks, so i have some VSTs/plugins i tend to use: Dron-E + Metaphysical in reaktor, and my own field recordings + Vallhalla Vintage Verb.

If you only wanted to talk about hardware, then my bad, ignore this post.

maybe a theremin?

it's not because I honestly think you do not need a dedicated synth to create drone sounds that I am or am not into that genre of music.
My opinion on this comes purely from a sound design point of view and nothing else.
It comes from programming hundreds (well, more likely 1000 or 2000+) sounds from scratch (synths) or samples.
I have nothing against drone music, not at all.

It's just my opinion looking from a sound design perspective, that's all. ;)

I was using my bass tuned down to C, played it with my Ebow+ in harmonic mode, line 6 hd300x on the bass amp mode driven to shit with a nice tape delay.
Awesome drones.

Field recordings, compressor to bring out the noise, resample, paulstretch, long reverb, gentle panning with a slow lfo, layer, layer, layer, layer, zone out...
