    I've spent ages getting the 'lower' part of the liquid arrangement right (the sub bass) and trying to make the arrangement as warm as possible, but I'm having real trouble making some generic warble sounds to go with it, whenever I make them, they always sound brash and 'computery' rather then natural as a lot of the more popular liquid artists manage.

    Example-Artificial Intelligence-Vibes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dhe82eP7xsk) desired sound enters the song around 2:11, is a warm warbly synth.

    Some tips on how to make it would be nice, but i'm more after how to soften/naturalise my current synths to go with my warm sub bass

    Many thanks

    I find the key to warm liquid souns is lots of various reverbs and delays, maybe a little chorus and phazer etc.... And slow attacks and long releases work well

    If you're using FL go on the mixer and add a reverb on the synth then put Wet/Dry to like 10-50% and voilá! You got yourself a soft synth

    Yezz fl fx' es are quite good for making soft syth sounds and pads ect. It's reverb, flangus and phaser work well for me :)
