Glitch percussion and Glitch percussion synthesis.
Arguably one of the main aspects of glitch production, synthesizing and sequencing glitch percussions is no obvious task; there are lots of ways of doing it and it takes time. Here, we show you several workflows to approach this baroque textures.

Stabs are a fundamental part of your groove and at the same time can help providing harmonic context. In this video, I will show you a few ways to spice them up with some glitchy goodness.

Cool tricks to give your synth patches a sense of instability transforming the sound in fast and unpredictable way.
