    Here is the track in question: https://soundcloud.com/araelsounds/theres-a-way

    I really like the pad here and tried to recreate but haven’t had much luck. Was able to come up with some nice sounding stuff but its not what I’m looking for.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Which sound in the song are you trying to replicate ? I can just about her a deep bass synth sound if that’s what you’re referring to.

    It starts at 6 seconds. Best way I can describe it is that it sounds like a vocally pad, not to be confused with the vocal chops that come in at around the same time.

    Try this:

    Oscillators
    – Osc 1: Medium Pulse Wave, Unison with several voices, but mild Detune, and spread out a bit
    – Osc 2: Same as Osc 1, but pitched up 1 octave, and turn the volume up so these higher notes ring out more than the lower ones
    – Noise: White. Pitch it up or High pass it a bit if you can, so it’s not so bottom heavy.

    Filter 1: Formant filter. This will create the vocal shape. Experiment with the Cutoff, maybe the Res as well, until you get the sound you’re looking for

    Amp Envelope: Medium Attack to swell in, and a long release

    Distortion: A bit of tube distortion to make it a little dirty

    Filter 2: 24 dB Low Pass. Take the Cutoff down to round off the top, but not too far. Boost the Res a lot to make that cutoff peak out and almost self-oscillate

    Reverb: Hall, and pretty wet, like 50/50 Mix.
