U-he Zebra: Creating A Lo-Fi Pad

How do you create a lo-fi, vintage-style pad in U-he Zebra? In this video I take apart a patch from my soundbank Automaton to show you how I created it from scratch, and to demonstrate how Zebra can be a powerful tool to create rich pads.

In this video I discuss –

  • Using the Oscillator Detune knob to create warmth
  • How to add a vintage quality to the sound
  • Creating a lo-fi sound using the Decimate filter
  • Using lanes to blend different sounds
  • How to create a fake shimmer-style reverb
