    Would love some guidance on how to create this patch:

    It is beautiful – I expect a load of the sound is coming from extensive automation

    Are you referring to the lead patch that starts fading in around 0:18?

    Exactly – it opens up throughout the track – initially i expect just done on a filter directly on the track. Might be the same patch at 2.08 in a higher octave, or possibly a variant of the same patch. It appears highly responsive to the key, so key tracking (?) set to high i think, but possibly some other things going on. As it is Ben, likely to all be done on Diva, so not crazy complex.

    Simple and really beautiful patch. I used Sylenth1, but you can use almost any synth that has a nice warm analog-style filter. Try this:

    Oscillator: Saw

    Filter: 24 dB Lowpass. Set the Cutoff around Noon. Bring up the Drive to warm things up, and give it a decent amount of Res to give that pointed shape.

    LFO: Apply some subtle modulation to the Cutoff. Just a small amount, at a slow rate. A random-shaped waveform would work best here as I’m not noticing a concrete pattern. But a slow Sine should also get the job done. We’re just looking for slow and subtle cutoff movement

    Amp Envelope: Bump up the Attack so that the note quickly swells in, and gives it a quick reverse-ish sounding attack transient. Note, that some synths will not start the amp envelope over when you play legato, even if Legato mode is off. So you may have to put a little separation between notes.

    Reverb: Big space, just a little wet.
