SYTRUS HARDSTYLE SCREECH | How to Make Hardstyle Screech | FL Studio Hardstyle Screech Tutorial

In this lesson you’ll learn how to make a hardstyle in FL Studio with Sytrus. This Sytrus hardstyle screech tutorial shows you all the settings, but also some sound tweaking.

Learn how Sytrus works

Sytrus is a very flexible synthesizer. It’s actually part of FL Studio’s stock plugins. With Sytrus you can go really crazy with your sound design.

For a lot of people Sytrus can be a bit overwhelming. It’s not as easy to learn or understand as the 3x Osc or other plugins like Sylenth1. However, when you DO get an intuitive understanding of Sytrus, you can do about anything.

In the video I’ll simply show you all the effects I used and all the settings that creates this Sytrus hardstyle screech. I’ll also be playing with a lot of the settings, so you can hear the sound change. It should give you many options and ideas for your sound design.

I encourage you to watch the video and basically model my settings of this Sytrus hardstyle screech. But the main lesson lays within the “tweaking part” of the video. When I change some of the settings, you get to hear how it changes the sound. This can give you a much better understanding of Sytrus inner-workings, but also how versatile you can design your screeches. There’s never just one way.
