    After the cymbal swell, I hear two things:

    1. White noise. That’s the big bright “shhh” on the top of the pad. Bit of low pass filtering. Make it wide, maybe with a Chorus effect.

    2. Mixed in with that, it sounds like a fluttery choir or vocal sample. Again, make it big and wide (if it’s a choir sample, it may be already). Try applying an LFO modulating the volume to make it flutter.

    I’d start with those two layers.

    Thank you Joe, I’ll give this a try!

    There’s a lot of layers in this track. Are you referring to the big washy sound that starts right at the beginning?

    Hi Joe,

    No, I’m pretty sure that sound right at the start is a reverse cymbal. What I had in mind was the pad in the high end that starts immediately after.

    Thank you!

    Try this:


    – Osc 1: Medium Pulse Wave, Unison with several voices, but mild Detune, and spread out a bit

    – Osc 2: Same as Osc 1, but pitched up 1 octave, and turn the volume up so these higher notes ring out more than the lower ones

    – Noise: White. Pitch it up or High pass it a bit if you can, so it’s not so bottom heavy.

    Filter 1: Formant filter. This will create the vocal shape. Experiment with the Cutoff, maybe the Res as well, until you get the sound you’re looking for

    Amp Envelope: Medium Attack to swell in, and a long release

    Distortion: A bit of tube distortion to make it a little dirty

    Filter 2: 24 dB Low Pass. Take the Cutoff down to round off the top, but not too far. Boost the Res a lot to make that cutoff peak out and almost self-oscillate

    Reverb: Hall, and pretty wet, like 50/50 Mix.

    Thanks Joe! Hoping to get to your level of skill one day 😀

    It starts at 6 seconds. Best way I can describe it is that it sounds like a vocally pad, not to be confused with the vocal chops that come in at around the same time.
