    Hello,

    Can you help me getting to synth patches from Blondie’s Heart of glass?
    You will find a example at youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2K4zdG0QfOA
    starting at 4:20 (Roland SH-1000 Bass Line, Moog Polymoog Background Lead)

    Many thanks!
    best regards
    John

    Try starting with this:

    Bass

    1. Oscillators: Saw Wave. Add a sub oscillator one octave below with a Square Wave.

    2. Filter: Low Pass. Turn Cutoff down until it matches the tone. Then boost Res by quite a bit in order to create an almost throat-like point

    3. LFO: Saw wave, routed to Volume. 1/16th note rate.

    4. Distortion: Just a touch to make it a bit dirty.

    5. Mod Wheel: Route it to Cutoff. Hold down a note to start the bass and then move the Mod Wheel up and down to get that changing filter movement

    Pad (Background Lead)

    1. Oscillator: Medium Pulse Wave, to be modulated by…

    2. LFO: Triangle or Sine wave, routed to the oscillator’s pulse width. This will take some tweaking, but I’m using Primer, and I have the Amount set to about 0.73, and the Rate at 1/8.

    3. Voices: Poly mode. 3 voices (or more).

    4. Mod Wheel: Just like the Bass. Route it to Cutoff. Hold down a chord, and then move the Mod Wheel up and down to get that changing filter movement
