What is this sound?
« on: March 29, 2016, 05:20:00 pm »
Hey Guys.

I recently discovered a new track i've been listening to and I really like the sound of one of the synths playing a melody subtly in the background.

You can hear it at around 1:32 minutes into the song and for a few phrases throughout the pre-chorus.

Does anyone know what it is? How you could make it? If anyone knows of any tutorial vids that would be amazing.

Here's the song: https://soundcloud.com/skelamusic/rivers

Thanks

Chris,

Sounds like a simple square wave to me.  Different octaves.  Nothing too complex.

Yep, short decay, bit of reverb. Nothing fancy.
