Hello,

I'm trying to figure out what is going on in this song:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkmYP8zo9o0&feature=player_detailpage#t=44s

I feel like the audio is being cut out, maybe like triggered into a key where you can just press a key and it will stop the audio from sending..? I don't know but in the song multiple sounds feel like they are being cut off somehow.. otherwise it's just synths with really fast release and quick attack??

Just unsure of what's going on and how to do it. Would love any comments. thanks.

Yes, parts of the arrangement are being put through a volume-controlling envelope. This is dead easy to do in Ableton Live, and probably other DAWs as well. Also, you can use a synth with an audio input (there seem to be more and more of those these days), where whatever comes in on the input goes through the synth like it's an oscillator.
