    Hi – I’m requesting help with a specific patch used in this song

    There’s only one synth sound throughout the whole song. I’ve tried to recreate it using the Arturia OB-Xa and DX7 plugins, but I can’t quite get it sounding as good as the record.

    Here’s my attempt at it using the Oberheim plugin.


    I have a range of plugins available to me through school, so I’m not requesting a particular plugin be used, rather I’d like someone to try and recreate the patch as close as possible, regardless of software.

    Your pretty close. Some adjustments to try:

    1. Your filter envelope’s attack stage is creating a horn-style attack transient which I don’t hear in the actual track. Try bringing it down to 0 (or maybe a little higher than 0 to avoid a “pop”)

    2. Reduce your filter envelope’s modulation amount. It’s too bright.

    3. Add a long slow decay/release to the filter envelope.

    4. Add Reverb

    5. Enable velocity so that not all of the notes are the same volume

    6. Are you modulating pan with an LFO? If so, try adding slow-ish chorus effect instead. That will create a lush and wide sound, and some left/right movement.
