The latest video features a new Mainstage pad sound and syncopated rhythms.
I thought “Where You Are” was a Bethel song, but apparently it’s from Leeland. Either way, it’s been a great addition to our church team’s repertoire.
The pad sound is very washy – smooth with a lot of high frequency content when the filter is opened up. Listen for how I use different filter settings for the pad at different points in the song. It’s a big help to dynamics.
The song itself contains a lot of 16th-note syncopation. Understanding how this rhythm functions is key to an accurate rhythmic feel. (And if you don’t get the feel right, you won’t sound like you know what you’re doing.)
Instruction and Mainstage pad download
Extra instruction and a download of the pad sound (including formatting for different dynamic levels of the song) are included with this month’s subscription to OurWorshipSound All Access.
But also every month, you can count on an exclusive keyboard technique video and new Mainstage patches for you. Members always get the best instruction and fresh sounds.
