    I’m a big fan of classic lead sound of the early nintendo music era. So here’s my request, I’m trying to replicate the lead at 1min45 and I need your help, I have no idea where to start.

    Because I cannot edit my post, I replying to myself to send a mp3 of the sound I’m trying to patch. The lead start at 2sec.

    My attempt:

    How It’s Made

    • Oscillator: Two saws, one detuned up 3 cents to create some mild pulsation
    • Unison: 4 voice, pretty strong Detune (around 12:30). Sending the two detuned saws into this Unison creates a much larger, almost 8-voice-like pulsation
    • Filter: Low Pass, with a little key tracking to keep things bright when playing higher notes. Cutoff around Noon, though the true brightness will be set by…
    • Filter Envelope: Small amount (knob around 10:00), max sustain, and a pretty quick 20 ms attack. This creates a subtle horn-like fatness on the attack transient.
    • Portamento: Just a tad, around 17ms. Puts a little bend between notes
    • Delay: Put some space behind this, with 1/16th Time, Feedback at noon, Mix at about 18% Wet

    Thank you Joe! I’m glad you awnsered my request!
    I feel it’s pretty close to the lead on the track!

    Lots of keytracking.
