The Big z3ta Thread

Post by trench » Mon Mar 01, 2010 1:58 am

I just started using z3ta+ and am slowly falling in love with it. I figured I’d start a thread for all things z3ta. People usually talk about Massive, Albino, Absynth, FM8, Thor, ex…. But not much about z3ta, which is shocking considering how good it is. I know many people (including myself) that still have questions, and would also love some new presets to play with. So post up anything you want in here that's z3ta related; Presets, tricks, tips, questions, skins, mods, and so on.

I’ll start things off:

All those skins and it still looks like my dogs ass with worms. :twisted:

Sorry but I like my synths like I like my ladies... with tweak-able knobs!

But it does have a great sound, and very easy to program. Love its bit reduction.

Yeah, I think nipples look more like knobs than penises. I don't know who came up with "slob my knob" but it just doesn't look right in my head. My dick aint no knob.

I enjoy the sliders... i find it a welcome change from the usual knob style of every other soft synth. Don't get me wrong, when it come to real synths (hardware) it's all about the knobs. But when your using a mouse, the sliders work great. Besides, if I want the knob feel from z3ta, I just assign a midi controller to the sliders... done deal.

Just dropping by to show some love for Z3ta
Don't use it all the time (Virus and Reaktor are my main choices) but it's a sick little synth

Zeta does sound good, but the filter doesn't sound too good. I know that's basically oxymornical. But whatevs, that's what I think. :?

I think I'm noticing what your talking about. So far i've been using it for dnb and the filter was working nice for the bass and pads I was making. But i'm having trouble getting a good dubstep wobble bass out of it, and I think it might be the filter... not sure. I can get it going of course, but I can't get the nice wobble i've been getting out of albino and other synths. It might be cause I just started using it. If anyone has a dope dubstep wobble bass patch, i'd love to check it out and backwards engineer it.

Excellent contribution!

Send a PM to Daft tnuc and ask him to add this to the production forum bible.

I'll uploadmy Z3ta+ skin if I can find it.

+1000 points for anyone who can tell me how to set mono retriggering in non legato mode.... :|
