I know I might be in the wrong place with this being Dubstepforum n'all but I've been struggling on how to make this sound for a while now and I thought I'd see if anyone had any ideas here of how to make it..
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFd15xwpfmY - The sound I am after is at 0.23 seconds..
This is a classic sound and so many different variations of it have been used in so many tunes. I can't get my head around it..
I think it's 2 square (maybe saw) waves detuned slightly against eachother, maybe with a 3rd square osc added pitched up 19 semitones (2rd harmonic) for added harmonics. It sounds like there is a slight low pass filter on there too automated for movement.
I understand there is probably a lot more to this sound, like chorus and reverb but I was just interested to see if anyone had any ideas on how to make the general sound?
3 oscs of sin/square in massive (1 neg 12, other 2 detuned about 12 cents off 0), with the low one more sine than square and the detuned ones almost fully square(but a lil sine) a modulated bandreject, an enveloped lopass, some noise, an almost fully wet reverb and some drive/saturation in massive seems to get kind of close.
that being said, it has a very *interesting* reverb on it... so thats the final bit that I cant get lol
the 2nd harmonic is actually at Plus 12 semitones. 19 is the third harmonic (odd harmonic).
when you are dealing with saws/squares (not sines) they naturally already have these harmonics. you would just be emphasising ALL the odd harmonics by adding a square at 19.
Yeh I was having trouble with the reverb too.. Sounds like a send with a filter being automated after it.. Either way it's a bad sound, still can't master it tho..
Isn't 19 semitones the 2nd harmonic btw? An octave above would be the first following the fundimental wouldn't it?
