Anime OSTs are home to some of the most incredible music out there.
From tension-packed battle themes to emotional ballads, they present a wide range of sonic colors that are great sources for inspiration. In the video above, we flip the music from Lupin the Third, Princess Minerva, and Blue Exorcist in FL Studio to demonstrate how they can spark creativity and move us to create something new. While we break down how tools like XLN Audio’s RC-20 Retro Color, Serato Sample, and Arturia’s V Collection 8 and FX Collection 2 helped us achieve our desired sounds, you can explore this same idea with any DAW and plugins of your choosing.
Do you have any questions on any of the topics covered in the video? What production challenges would you like to see on the Splice YouTube channel next? Let us know in the comments below.
