    Hi everyone! I’ve been trying to cover this song for practice but I keep getting stuck trying to recreate this sound. As the song moves out of the intro there’s this fill at 00:18 consisting of 6 hits. Any idea how to recreate them, assuming its synthesized? I’m using Serum but any general tips would be greatly appreciated!

    Might be a guitar. But it has such a crunchy digital vibe that you can get it with a synth. Try this:

    Oscillator

    • Waveform: Saw
    • Unison: Six voices with Detune turned up enough to make it aggressive and almost a little out-of-tune. 50% Spread/Width

    Amp Envelope

    • Description: A short tail
    • Release: Quick but noticeable. Around 220 ms

    Filter:

    • Type: Bandpass
    • Slope: 12 dB
    • Cutoff: Set it so that you’re taking more lows off than highs. It’s a bright and kind of small sound.
    • Res: Maybe have to boost it a bit, depending on the synth. This is to help determine how narrow the sound will be.

    Distortion

    • Type: Tube-style, though others may work
    • Drive/Amount: Pretty heavy. Really break up the sound, to get the distorted guitar vibe

    Reverb

    • Size: Medium. Like a small Hall.
    • Wet: Wet enough to be heard after the note ends, but not so wet that it consumes the sound.
