    Hey everyone,

    Love the look of the forum

    Synth appears at 13 seconds (Sounds like strings)

    2nd synth – the heavy bass at the same time stamp.

    EXTRA BONUS POINTS: 2:13 any ideas on bass, glitch and cool metallic effect

    Thanks for your help! Really appreciate any help

    Looking for some information on how to craft this

    Sorry for the delayed response on this! Try starting with this:


    Oscillator: Saw wave. 3-voice unison with mild detune (just enough to smear the sound) and narrow width.

    Amp Envelope: Quick attack, around 50 ms. This creates that bowed sound.

    Filter: Low Pass, 24 dB. Bring the cutoff down far enough to take the bright edge off the top, but still allow for a bright string-like timbre. Boost the res a bit to narrow the tone. Then crank the Filter’s drive. If there is no drive you can try adding a warm overdrive effect.

    Reverb: We’re going for mild ambience here, making it sound a bit like it’s in a room. So a very small size, and just a little wet.

    Panning: It sounds like it’s jumping around a bit, though it’s hard to hear due to the dense mix. Try routing the LFO to panning and experiment with it.


    It sounds like a distorted sub bass. Try a saw wave, through a 24 dB Low Pass filter, with the cutoff way down to create a sub bass. Then crank the Drive as high as you can. This will bring out that warm saturation. Then turn up the amp attack a little bit. I think it has some of that same bowed vibe as the string patch.

    Thanks so much for the reply. I’ll give it a go later when I get home.
