I am trying to figure the intro patch and the lead rift of this song using Syntorial’s Primer. In the video the riff shows a guitar but it doen’t sound like a traditional guitar.
Lead Riff at 50 seconds into the video.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

The sound in the video sounds very processed. Is there anyway to sound design a patch using subtractive synthesis to come close to that lead guitar sound?April 17, 2019 at 6:07 am #25524Joe HanleyKeymaster
Because this is so processed, it almost doesn’t sound like a guitar anymore. So you can get pretty close with a synth. Try starting with this:
Oscillator: Thin pulse wave. Double and detune it (or use 2-voice Unison) with a pretty aggressive detune amount. This will bring in that smear and pitchy wobble.
Filter: Band pass with lots of resonance. Adjust the cutoff to match the sound. We’re looking for somewhere in the upper-mid range, to create a small and kind-of-bright sound.
Amp Envelope: Put a subtle attack transient on the sound to emulate a string pluck, by bringing the sustain down a bit (not all the way) and setting a quick decay.
LFO: Add more pitch wobble (this sound is wobbly). Quick rate, mild amount.
Chorus: Smear the sound a bit more, with a bit of chorus.
