1. Make Bigger Sounds With Bazille

Making anything sound big and warm is easy in Bazille because with just the dry waveforms it already has such a rich sound.

There are a few things we can do to make these sounds sound even richer, let’s check it out!

First up we have the phase distortion (PD) and fractalize parameters that you find inside the oscillator panel.

Phase distortion is similar to FM whereas it works with two waves modulating each other. But where in FM (frequency modulation) the second oscillator is used to modulate the pitch of the first wave, phase distortion uses a second wave to modulate the original wave.

The effect is that the sound becomes gritty and rich. You can choose a variety of waveforms to use as modulator with the selector panel inside the oscillator.

Fractalize or fractal resonance (FR) is a little bit more complicated, it packs multiple waveforms into another wave which you can choose with the selector. The result; a nice and gritty wave containing lots of harmonics.

Last but not least we have the “stack” option on the FX page in the voice box, here you can stack copies of the sound onto each other which makes the sound a lot bigger and also more stereo.

Have fun with these quick tips!


2. The Quantize Module In Bazille

Because of how Bazille is designed it has some different options available. There are some modules that you wouldn’t find in most other software synthesizers.
Today we’ll be looking into one of these; The Quantize module.

The quantize module is something that goes a long way back.
Older synthesizers could easily change in pitch when you moved them or even when the temperature of the room changed!
This caused the problem that your carefully programmed patches suddenly didn’t sound that good anymore.
You could calibrate the oscillators again and spend hours fine-tuning all your synths, but a better way would be to use a quantizer.

A quantizer is a device that forces all incoming signals into per-defined values.
So when you insert a quantizer between your pitch modulation and your oscillators and you set it to a value of 12, the oscillators are always getting perfect semitones!

So it is mainly a handy tool to use, but you can also use the module for more creative approaches.
For example, try setting the quantizer to a value of 1 and send some heavy modulation through the module, it will force all incoming signals to a value of 1, which can give great (and also loud) results!

So experiment with this on filter cutoff, pitch, resonance, phase distortion or basically anything you like, be careful though, it can get loud!


3. A First Look At U-He Bazille

Wooow! I got a first look at Bazille yesterday, and what an awesome synth! I decided to do a tutorial about it for those interested in this crazy modular monster!

So this week is going to be a bit different, sorry! I just wanted to share this new synth by U-he with you, it has been a long time in the making but I have the feeling it is absolutely worth it.

If you have worked with modular synths or emulations thereof the main interface of Bazille will look pretty familiar to you, there are some things that are different though.
For example, Bazille uses mainly FM (called Phase Distortion inside Bazille)to create sounds, which is a digital technique, and there are also lots of advanced modulation possibilities.
The morphing sequencer for example is not something you would find in an oldskool modular system!

Almost everything in Bazille works with patch cables, you connect different modules together in a chain to create sounds.
To drag a cable you click on a module output and then connect it to the input of another module.
This way you can connect oscillators to filters, but also oscillators to oscillators, LFO’s to sequencers, etc.
So the cables work for audio signal as well as modulation signals (Control Voltages)

The beauty of this is that you can create totally random but awesome patches where you use your imagination to make the weirdest connections, like sending the output of a filter to the input of two other filters, or use an oscillator as modulation source.
Other than the 4 oscillators and 2 LFO’s (although oscillators can also operate as LFO’s) we have a sequencer, a quantizer, a sample and hold module some noise sources, an insanely awesome FX section and much more!

For those of you looking for a new and creative way to design great sounding patches this might be the end of your search!
Check it out and let me know what you think!
You can download the free beta version of the synth at the KVR forum, check .

Have fun!

4. Make Ambient Pluck Sounds In Bazille

Bazille is capable of making some extremely complicated patches, but to familiarise ourselves with the interface it might be better to start with a nice multi purpose sound before we look into the advanced stuff..

This week we are going to make a warm plucky sound, good for backgrounds, as main element or just for sound design practice!

We start by routing all oscillators to a mixer, in Bazille this is called the ”multiplex”.
Here we can mix our modulation and audio signals together and route them to different places.
Off course we could route the oscillators straight to the main output in Bazille, or to the filters for that matter, but there are a few advantages in using the multiplex.

One of these advantages is the fact that we can drag multiple cables from one output, whereas inputs (the grey sockets) can only hold one cable at a time.
By using the multiplex we can throw in any signal we want and route them out to whatever destinations we want, even though it just has one output!

Besides that the multiplex has a great amplitude and ring modulation feature but this is also something we are going to look into a little bit later down the line.
For those interested, try the RM input!

Now that we have one output for all four oscillators we can patch them to several different locations, good options are the filters, the quantize module or to inputs of other knobs, in that case you would use the signal as modulation source.
But for our example we are just going through the filter and then straight out to your DAW.

Since sine waves are a bit boring we need to spice things up a little bit.
We can dial in a lot of variation by using the phase distortion and the fractalize options in the oscillator panel.
For the final touches I show you how to use any LFO as a vibrato controller, and we apply some of the warm analogue sounding Bazille effects.

Voilà, we’ve got ourselves a nice and especially warm sound!
You can use this as your starting point and go crazy with it, have fun!


5. Creative Routing With Bazille

Using feedback is always great fun when you are designing sounds, let’s see how to use this technique inside U-he Bazille to create some cool patches.

Because the signal flow in Bazille is so flexible there are a lot of ways to patch things up a little bit differently.
For example, nowadays most famous or more advanced synthesisers will have at least some FM options or a dedicated FM oscillator, in Bazille you can just use any oscillator as a modulator for another oscillator.
In my example we use oscillator 2 to control the pitch of oscillator one, in essence creating a FM (Frequency Modulation) patch where OSC2 is the modulator and oscillator 1 is the carrier.

The fun thing about this is that your sounds can get very unique within seconds and they get sort of a rich quality added to them.
It is also pretty easy to overdo it and get some very noisy, distorted sounds, but you’ll find the “magic” settings soon enough!

Another great thing is that even though you don’t hear the modulation oscillator directly, you can still turn the knobs and get a variety of cool sounds.
If you want to experiment with this, try using the phase distortion and the fractilise options!

After the oscillator stage we send the sound through the multiplex, an advanced mixer module that allows you to sum different sounds into one output.
We can send this output to any filter we want to and use those filters to modulate their own cutoff again!
Sounds crazy? Well maybe it is a little bit, but this is how a lot of cool patches where created in the old days, where modular synths ruled the world.
You’ll be surprised by the amount of sounds you start to recognise once you’ve tried some of these tricks.

Don’t forget that you can set the tuning ratio of any oscillator to different settings, try the “overtones” or the “hertz” for example to really go crazy with FM sounds.
I hope you find some cool little tricks this way, and if you do, feel free to share them!
