Creating a hi-hat

So let's take a look at how we can synthesize a symbol- or hi-hat-type sound. So I am going to load in the empty patch. So I am going to go Load Setting and then Desktop/Exercise Files/Ultrabeat. Then in here the Preset folder I am going to select Ultrabeat_EMPTY. So we will build the cymbal sound on C1, and if you think about a cymbal it's a pretty noisy type of sound, but it's different than obviously a snare-drum kind of noise.

So the best way to re-create a cymbal sound is using resonant noise. So I am going to turn on the noise generator. I just turned off oscillator 2. And I am going to set this to High Pass. Okay, so you hear we have noise. I'm going to adjust the cutoff to bring back in from the low frequencies, and then I am going to crank up the resonance here. So let's just crank this way up, and then I will adjust the cutoff a bit. Okay, so we have a nice resonant noise sound here.

So the next thing I am going to want to do is just play around with the amp ...
