How to go about making this pluck?
« on: May 24, 2016, 11:38:23 pm »
I'm curious (pun intended) about how I would go about making the pluck in the intro of this song:

Thanks in advance!

Sound kinda like a sine to me maybe try modulation between a sine and square in massive with an envelope.

It's deceptively simple.

Start with a sin wave.
Use amp envelope with almost no attack and a short decay.
Use pitch envelope with a tiny decay and one octave range.
Add a keytracking lowpass filter that is 3 octaves above the note.
Portamanto/Glide that is less than 20ms.
Delay.
Reverb.

Yeah pretty much this.
