BASIC WORKFLOW TUTORIAL
Below are a few videos including an extensive walkthrough 90minute long video introducing you in-depth to using the Deluge online right now!
We didn’t do a good job of recording the audio with these, you can hear a cleaner output of the synth engine to your right with the SoundCloud embed.
We put together this video primarily with first-time users in mind, and the synth/pattern programming is very rudimentary, but as far as an introduction to the Deluge, you can’t beat it. Make sure you watch all three.
Part 1 introduces you to “Track View”, “Song View” and the Deluges scrolling and zooming, shows how you construct songs and introduces you to some of the sample playback features..
Part 2 goes deep into the Sound Editor and patching matrix and explores the sampling capability of the Deluge.
Part 3 brings a few other instruments into play and showcases the Deluges ability to play with others.
