1. @doomsberry nooooooooo! The world needs more Doomsberry tunes. Finish it. Now. For real. My Doomsberry folder is hungry.

    @freque hahaha. The first time I make TCTD, and it’s for an article on echoes, lol.

  2. very nice article man, didn’t know about all the other types of echo effects. However, I’m gonna have to scrap a song I’ve been working on, it sounds exactly like your example haha.

  3. Awesome!
    Might try this in one of my next tracks.

  4. @fuxter Glad you liked it!

    I’m going to do an intro to hand-drawn WAV channel bass next week ;)

    I’ll do an arpeggio column in the future for sure too. I rarely use table chaining, but I’ll see what I can dig up.

  5. Brilliant! I’m looking forward to checking out your next articles, I might finally learn how to use LSDj properly haha.

  6. super cool stuff! some requests for future columns, if i may =)
    * crazy wav channel bazz mad skillz examples
    * some cool table chaining examples
    * some advanced spicy arpeggios

    @roboctopus thanks!

  7. @solarbear BGB all the way! :P

    Seriously though, if anyone is looking for an emulator, BGB has the most accurate sound to my ears.

  8. I see you are also rocking BGB.

  9. This was a really interesting, well-written article. Nice job!

  10. @ezkl lololol…but 7th chords with echoes like this are mainstays of *my* music.

    AND… here’s a heavy handed example of said technique!

    Thanks Roboctopus!

  12. Lol. You’re giving away my secrets! 7th chords with echos exactly like this are a mainstay of my music!

  13. @dylanbrochill That method is really good, actually. Clean, automatic, not much to worry about once you set up the table and the instrument. I’ve used that before and it’s really cool.

    My only issue with it is that I compose at pretty low envelope volume levels to maximize wave channel kicks and bass volume (my pulse channel envelopes are usually 80 and below for leads). That causes the clicky LSDJ envelope sound to become more and more noticeable the lower your overall track volume.

    I might do more echoes in a future column though ;)

  14. if youve ever looked at my .savs almost all my songs use tables for echoes. just a matter of using the volume column to add a quick easy echo effect. it simply goes 84 02 74 02 64 02 etc. its not the same, and robs methods are probably better :P

  15. @spry thanks! If you want to share variations on echoes with us, please do! I know there are other ways to do it, but I explained this one to Solarbear last week and he found it useful. Figured others might as well. ^_^

  16. very cool. quite a different technique than i have used in the past too. thanks for writing such a detailed and thoughtful explanation! :-D
