Sound design recreating Headhunterz' Signature lead saw
« on: January 18, 2016, 03:03:52 am »
I've been listening to some of Headhunterz' new songs lately, and they all seem to have this special sliding hyper-saw lead. From the research I've done, he uses the Access Virus TI for making it but I was just curious if anybody had any idea on how to recreate the sound.

Here's a few examples of the lead:

This may help you. He posted it a few days ago on his Instagram account. https://www.instagram.com/p/BAwiQ1Bp8aM/?taken-by=headhunterz

thats a couple of layers

lead, chords , bass & sub

the lead & chords have a pitch bend

all of the synths go into a reeverb bus

then reverb is sidechained to either of the synths, since theyre playing the same note rhythm

Damn T.K. I love the sound design you are able to recreate! I checked out some other stuff on your SC. What synths do you primarily use?

I tried to figure out Headhunterz's saw layering a couple of months ago: https://soundcloud.com/getyoursnackon/nothing-can-hold-us-down-supersaws/s-0uRSu To me, most of his sound comes from his writing/MIDI. The actual patches are pretty standard-fare Sylenth supersaws, with a pitch mod on the attack. It's easy to get 95% the way there with basic processing, but there's some texture about his that I can't really get with Sylenth alone... I recall hearing that he uses a Virus TI for these sounds, so perhaps that has something to do with it.

Indeed, to summarize, there are many layers and you can't create it with just one oscillator. You can read more about that here.
