I recently found myself trying to make droid sounds for a Wwise project I am working on and came across this video.  Now unfortunately I don’t have a MicroKorg but I took the principals and was able to replicate the effect in Massive.  It will probably take less time to watch the video than to read so here you go:

The gist is:

  • Turn all oscillators off/down.
  • Turn noise AMP up
  • Add a HP Filter and turn resonance all the way up
  • Play with cutoff on the HPF and youre done!
