I decided that it may be wise to invest in some sound designing software, as I am discovering this to be somewhat of a hidden talent.
I currently am pretty much using a life hack when it comes to sound design.
I love creating sounds real-time, so I use a combination of Minihost (a realtime vst host) by Tobybear, and Chainer vst by Xlutop.
Using these 2 tools, I can load any combination of vst instruments and effects and warp them and tweak them as I record (using the record window in Minihost).
However, this can be a daunting task, and is sometimes hard to do in general.
I’ve had my most success in sound design when using this method, however, I’m sure there’s a better way.
I’ve heard about using Reaktor, or Max. However, as I have read about Bidule by Plogue, that has intrigued me the most.
Do you guys have any suggestions of methods/programs/vst which are great for sound design? (sound effects, soundscapes, and so on).
They can be free of paid. I would like to keep it under 150$ for now.
Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!
