    Hey guys, I’ve been ramming my head against a wall trying to get a very particular sound in Massive or Primer, and not-having any luck. Basically, I want a staccato string sound (short, fast notes), and ideally, I don’t want it to sound too real, as silly as that may sound. I’m making a “fake” orchestra to write some sort of throw-back video game music.

    Here are a few links:

    Undertale – Hopes and Dream. I believe this whole game uses soundfonts, and these are probably extremely downsampled actual string samples, but the way this track starts is exactly the sort of thing I’m looking for!

    I found someone who made a pretty convincing string sound in Serum, but I wasn’t able to replicate it in Massive (and it’s a bit too realistic, if I’m being picky,but I know how to muddy things. up.)

    And then, if it helps, here’s a track from Final Fantasy VI that has a vibe I’m going for. I do know that the SNES used very short, low bit samples, but I figured I could get pretty close? Maybe I’m wrong.

    Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

    Made a video tut and patch challenge for this one: https://www.syntorial.com/community/topic/patch-challenge-strings/

    The tut covers a variety of string elements, including strings.
