reFX NEXUS2 is one of preferred ROMplers of EDM hitmakers everywhere, and in this video tutorial series, synth expert Scottie Dugan takes you through how you can find and tweak just the sound you’re looking for in this massive library of sounds. Scottie begins by explaining that a ROMpler is an instrument in which you don’t create your own sounds, but rather select sounds from a huge internal library and then adjust parameters to taste. He then shows you around the interface, and the main parameters on the front panel for precise sonic tweaking, as well as the Display and how you can use it to get real-time information on how you have modified the loaded presets.
After that, Scottie explains how you can control the synth with a MIDI controller and other modulation sources, such as the Modulation Matrix and LFO section.
The flexible and easy to use arpeggiator is next, as well as a breakdown of the Trance Gate, which uses a gate to automate volume and more.
Scottie now explores the Frequency Analyzer which displays NEXUS 2’s output, so you can also see your sound instead of just hearing it, which allows for better tweaking.
That leads to a deep dive into Layer and Oscillator parameters, as well as the mixer and routing of effects.
Finally, Scottie reveals more global parameters wrapping up your tour of this monster EDM machine.
