    Hi,
    I am new to the forum and after seeing all the buzz decided to ask for a helpin’ hand in pinpointing one particular patch.
    Recently I came across a really refreshing sounding main synth lead (that’s what you get for googleing “Cool Music” I guess..).
    The original song is Tristam & Braken – Flight.

    Here is a link to hear it in action:

    Would be cool to try and recreate it in Primer, but any other synth is welcome too.

    This is a nice straight-forward lead. Simple but potent.

    How It’s Made

    • Synth: Primer
    • Oscillators. Osc 1 Square wave. Sub Osc (1 octave below) also Square wave, with a volume that’s quieter than Osc 1, so that the higher Osc 1 pitch is louder than the Sub
    • Filter: Low Pass. The Cutoff starts around Noon, and is gradually turned during the beginning of the track, until it’s at Max for the full bright patch
    • LFO: Destination Pitch. Fast Rate (1/16th with BPM at 80). Small amount so that we just get vibrato, but it is a little bit more aggressive than your typical vibrato so a little extra amount will feel good here
    • Voice: Legato voice mode, with a little bit of Portamento. This will smooth connected notes together, and when we do larger note jumps you’ll hear the quick Portamento slide in the pitch
    • Reverb: Big size, small Mix, so that our sound is still pretty dry and up front, but we hear the big cavernous ambience behind it
