    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone could help me with this sound please:

    The best way I could describe it is like an airplane engine that has been filtered thoroughly. It appears throughout the song, but is most noticeable at 4:19.

    Also quite noticeable at 1:50, 2:42, and 4:03.

    I have access to FL Studio synths (like 3x Osc) as well as Sylenth and Massive. I am quite an amateur so any detail is appreciated as to how to create it. I am more knowledgeable of Sylenth than Massive.

    Thank you for any assistance. 🙂

    I managed to partially create it with a flanger effect placed on partially filtered whitenoise in 3X Osc. However, mine doesn’t sound nearly as thick or aggressive. I will be experimenting more with some other flanger and phaser plugins to see if this helps. Any further tips would be appreciated!

    If you post your attempt here, I’ll take a listen, and suggest some adjustments

    Thanks for replying to my post.

    The first clip is the section of the sound I am using to replicate the sound because it most clearly isolates the sound.

    The second clip is the sound I have made.

    I think it just needs some low pass filtering. Take off some top end, maybe use a 24 dB filter. If it has filter Drive, maybe push that up. You’ve got the general tone down. Just taking off some of the bite and rounding it out a bit will probably get you there.

    I’ve been extensively experimenting, and tried what you recommended. I got really close to a final result! But, I’ve concluded that the initial sound used is not actually just white noise – it’s a pad that’s played throughout the song. That explains the bass that is present as well as the “thickness” I was describing.

    For that reason, I created a version that incorporates a pad as well (that’s “Whitenoise Clip V2 – with added synths.wav”).
    The pad I used, on its own without automation effects and the whitenoise, is “Pad Clip.wav.”

    The section of the song I used to replicate the pad is “Track Clip 2 – No Matter What You Do (pad sample).wav.”
    Do you have any recommendations for replicating this pad? I’ve been struggling to imitate it.

    Thank you again for your assistance!

    Try making the following adjustments to the pad you created:

    1. Apply a Low Pass to take off the top, yours is too bright and buzzy. Also, try turning the resonance up to give it to a bit more of a nasal shape. OR, you could try a bandpass filter. Tweak the settings until you get that really filtered sound the recording has.

    2. Narrow the width. It should be more center-focused.

    3. The tone itself should be more string-like. Check out our YT video on strings, and mess around with some of those ideas to see if you can get closer to the timbre:
