    Hi Joe,

    first off just wanted you to know how much I’m enjoying Syntorial. Some slight frustration with the Ring Mod section, but I completed it in the end.

    I have a couple of patch requests, both from Medium by Anthony Rother

    First off the bass patch that comes in at 44 seconds
    Next the string like synth that comes in at 1 minute 29 seconds.

    Any help gratefully received!

    Any suggestions about which vst’s might be best suited for recreating these?

    Try this:


    Oscillator 1

    • Waveform: Saw

    Oscillator 2

    • Waveform: Saw
    • Pitch: 1 octave lower
    • NOTE: You may have to adjust the phase of one of the oscillators until they combine to create the right sound.


    • Type: Lowpass
    • Slope: 24 dB
    • Cutoff: Turn down pretty far, so that’s it’s a nice round bass sound. This will be modulated in the upcoming Filter Envelope
    • Res: Bring it up a bit
    • Drive: If available, boost it to add some oomph

    Filter Envelope

    • Description: A quickly decaying shape.
    • Sustain: 0
    • Decay/Release: 270 ms
    • Mod Amount: Turn it up until it sounds right.
    • You’ll probably have to go back and forth between Mod Amount, Cutoff and Res to get this right

    Amp Envelope

    • Description: We just need a little tail
    • Release: Around 300 ms.


    • Mode: Mono



    • Waveform: Saw
    • Unisons: Six voices with Detune turned up enough so that it sounds kind-of pitchy, a little out-of-tune. 100% Width

    Amp Envelope

    • Description: A really long tail
    • Release: around 5 seconds.


    • Mode: Poly
    • Number of voices: least 4

    Hi Joe,

    thanks for your help – I’m getting pretty close following your suggestions. Definitely closer with the bass patch, my version of the pad is lacking some of the airiness of the original.
