    Hey all! Im looking for assistance with recreating the main synth lead in this track: https://twitter.com/ALWAYSPROP3R/status/1112016019625791488

    I’ve tried my best to reproduce this sound but can’t seem to get the main tone/character of the sound, and instead have managed to come up with a much brighter version of the sound. I’ve also attempted to recreate the underlying pad sound, but have also found myself stuck with a brighter version than the original. I’d really appreciate it if someone could assist me with the waveforms/unison amount/modulated parameters of the lead, and if you’re feeling ambitious enough, the underlying pad sound as well.

    My version: https://soundcloud.com/xerseich/always-proper-therapy-sessions-vol5/s-Ok7t2

    Thanks in advance,

    – Matt

    Hi Matt

    I think you’re on the right track. But it’s missing that metallic bell-like timbre. My first thought is to try FM or Ring mod. What synth are you using?

    Hey Joe, sorry for taking a while to get back to this.

    But I’ve made another attempt on the lead sound, but this time with adding RM from a thin pulse waveform, to a triangle waveform, yet I am still struggling to achieve the main tone of the sound. I have also experimented with FM, and achieved very similar results to what I got with RM.

    Perhaps this sound is too hard to replicate, but I would appreciate any advice on how I could get a clsoer result to that tone that I’m interested in. It would be helpful if you could possibly suggest the waveforms and the FM/RM amount that was used.

    Try using RM from a sine wave to a thin pulse wave, and setting the sine wave’s pitch to +19 semi. Raising the pitch is really important for RM and FM when you want to bring out a metallic or bell-like character.
