      do you know any techniques for this kind of sound? which waveforms would these use? they sound subtractive to me

      is it a question of gear, they sound analog but can it be done on a vst?

      do you know any presets like this?

      is it about the notes they play too? can you tell if these are major or minor?

      any help would be appreciated

      here is another song with a similar sound

        You could make these pads with subtractive waveforms. I’d experiment with Saw and Pulse waves.

        The most important design aspect for these sounds will be the Filter. You’ll want to use a Lowpass filter and really experiment with the Cutoff and Resonance parameters.

        There’s also some movement which you can achieve with unison or a Chorus effect.

        Yes, they can be done with a VST. If it feels a little “cold” to you, see if the filter has a “Drive” parameter. Turn it up to get a little analog-style warmth.

        Both songs sound like they’re in a Minor key.

            thanks a lot! i managed to get kinda close with uhe ace, pulse waves in unison with chorus, drive and a horn sample layered, the second song is the synth on its own

              Nice! I like the addition of the horn sample. Try bringing the cutoff down a bit more, turning up the resonance a bit, and increasing the unison detune to get a bit more movement.
