I want to design my own timbres because I have sounds in my head that I can't make and so I want to know how to make my own timbres so that the music that I hear can be made

You learn to play the instrument that makes the timbres you want.

Timbre is a physical characteristic of sound, it's a by-product of sound being made. I think you mean patches.

If that's what they're called then yes

You'll need some basic knowledge about music production and a program that allows you to make synths.

Well I've got an assignment in for Tuesday that I haven't started lel (actually a sound design for film assignment), so probably then.
I'll start up an interest/planning thread now shortly though.

Yeah I read that article a few months ago but what I really want to know is how do you actually do it. The practical side of things. The software you can use use and how you work with it and all of that.

Yea this is what I want to know as well

i don't think there's a direct way to learn how to create whatever you hear in your head. it's almost always going to be a function of how well you can recall all the little fundamental details you picked up while reading/experimenting.

1. Get a DAW (Pro Tools, Ableton, Logic, Reason, Reaper, Cubase etc.)
2. Start experimenting

You can use synths/VST's like Massive, Absynth and FM8 but if you get some good samples and stretch them, put ring modulators on them or whatever type of FX you can get cool results.
It's a tough thing though. It will take some thing to make to make your own sounds that sound good and fat/thick. Layering as well as dynamic processing and EQ can help a lot.

And listen to Amon Tobin. He's a god of Sound Design. This is ISAM, one of the most godly things every made.

Timbre makes me think of sound quality, which makes me think of Ozone mastering software....

As said above get a DAW (digital audio workstation) and if you have the money or sail the seas you can pretty much reproduce almost anything you want with enough practice and patience.

Hey guys I found out how. I use a VST synth and I manipulate it in a bunch of different ways to get different sounds.
