    I’m trying to get that shimmering synth sound as heard throughout the entire track. It sounds like it has some sort of fast modulation parameter, maybe pulse width modulation? I know this artist uses the Juno 60 and uses the pulse wave a lot. Also sounds like there is a legato effect on the synth. I’d appreciate any help.

    These dense layered patches are always tricky. I hear two layers:

    Layer 1: Shimmery pad

    Oscillator: Medium pulse wave

    LFO: Slow triangle modulating oscillator pulse width

    Envelope: Slow attack to swell in

    Filter: Low pass, take a bit off the top, add some resonance

    Chorus: wide and warm

    Reverb: Big and wet

    Layer 2: Pitch-modulated video game

    Oscillator: Square wave

    LFO: Modulate the oscillator’s pitch in an up-down motion. How you do this depends on the synth. In Serum, I use a triangle waveform to modulate the oscillator’s Semi destination. This forces the modulation to jump up one semi-tone at a time, instead of moving the pitch smoothly.

    Delay: 50/50 wet, long feedback, 1/4 or 1/8 note rate. This will create a nice blanket of overlapping sound.

    Reverb: Big and wet
