    Hi guys, I’m looking for some help programming the lead sound from ABBA’s Gimme Gimme. Starts at 0.16 on the recording

    It sounds like two layers: strings and synth lead. For the synth lead try:

    Oscillator: Saw. 2 voice Unison with a slow rate, to create some movement.

    Filter: Low Pass, 12 dB. Boost the Resonance. Bring the cutoff down to take a chunk of high end off, but leave it bright.

    Portamento: Just a little, to smooth the movement between notes.

    For the Strings layer, you could either layer in a String sample, or create a string-like synth patch. For info on how to synthesize strings see this video:
