With the release of Steinberg’s Cubase 6.5 comes a couple of efficacious software synthesizers, and one of these is the new Grain Table Synth Padshop.

Shaping Sound

This chapter covers using Padshop’s more traditional controls such as envelopes, amplifiers and filters to harness and control the grain-streams discussed in chapter one.

Modulation and Movement

This chapter looks at using the LFOs, Step Modulator and Modulation Matrix to add movement and rhythm to the sounds Padshop generates. We look at how to create rhythmic parts and how to add character to pads. You’ll also learn how to initialize Padshop and begin creating from scratch.

Hey all,
just wanted to let you know that Chris is making absolutely great Tutorial Videos! He did all of the C6 Tuts as well. Actually it is unbelievable how much you´ll get for the money, it´s a no brainer!


Well the sample video is really good, I would suggest anyone who owns Padshop at least watches that as it explains the basic controls of the main synth engine. Not sure if it was smart to make the most important part of the tutorial freely available, but I’m not complaining :sunglasses:

yes as strophoid said tmi and having a know how of synths i now not need to buy your stream as you have explained everything i need to know !
Cheers for that i’ll buy you a pint IF i see you in the local !


Hi folks,

Just a little note to say that the release of this video has been delayed by one day to the 6th. We apologize for the delay to those that have already pre-ordered this video. However, it does gives one more day for those that have not yet done so to save with the pre-order special pricing.


Hi folks,

This weekend we are having a sale on this video tutorial (SWA Fast Approach to Padshop) for only $12.99.


Since this is about a VST Instrument, and NOT Cubase, could a moderator please move this to the correct forum.

Also wondering why this advertisement has sticky status?
