Hey there, fellow social sound designers.
I'm coming to you with a practical question. How do I go about designing this type of radio-ish stingers: http://soundcloud.com/georgevlad/stingers/s-l11QP
(That is not my work, and it's only there to show you what I mean.)
I'm interested in those short bursts and transitions, but also in the dynamics of everything. Is there a specific effect or set of effects that can simply turn music, noise or other audio into something like this? Do you have any experience with similar stuff?
I'm asking this because I'd like to avoid reinventing the wheel when a solution may be right in front of me. It is possible however that this can only be done with endless hours of toil and work. If this is the case then please let me know and I will get right on to it.
