6. Cre­ative fil­ter­ing for a mod­ern Reese sound

1 De­sign­ing a tear­ing Reese gives you the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to reach for all those weird, won­der­ful fil­ter types that your synth or plu­g­ins folder has to of­fer. Start­ing with the wavetable Reese patch from our pre­vi­ous tu­to­rial, we have a play with some of Serum’s more es­o­teric fil­ter types. We un­route the Sub osc from the fil­ter, to keep its so­lid­ity in­tact in the mix.

2 Serum’s Ring Mod fil­ter adds in dis­so­nant ring mod­u­la­tion. We mix it in par­al­lel with the Mix knob, then sweep the Cut­off around as we play notes. This blends in un­usual har­mon­ics for more nas­ti­ness, and our Reese even ‘breaks up’ oc­ca­sion­ally for glitch ef­fects.

3 Some of the comb-, phaser- and flanger-style fil­ters are also use­ful for ag­gres­sion. We Mix in the Flg H6­fil­ter type, and set its HP Freq amount quite high. This is al­most act­ing as an­other os­cil­la­tor, giv­ing the Reese an ex­tra di­men­sion of mov­ing noise in the high fre­quen­cies.
