Hello, I’m Defense Mechanism and welcome back to Intense Tech! Join in as we explore the features of LSDj in depth with the ultimate goal of helping you, the reader, level up your understanding of the program!

In this tutorial we’ll continue covering what one needs to understand the Wave channel synth! Last time we covered Signal, Volume, Filter, Cutoff, and Q. This time we’re specifically getting into the wave synth parameters of Dist, Phase, Vshift, and Limit. We’re going to show you how to add some real noisy crunch to your wave sounds! By the end you should have a great idea of how to get any kind of sound out of the wave channel, from a silky smooth lead to a gnarly crunchy bass.
