I need this sound

Post by ThomasT » Wed Jul 21, 2010 12:06 am

Hi,

I'm not the synthie expert. Although I have all the creamware synths.
I need a synthie sound like this:

(Amorphis - Black Winter Day)

AFAIK Amorphis used an old moog for this. But I cannot get this with miniscope.

Can someone help me? I get some sounds that are close to that I need. But not perfect.
(e.g. lightwave preset 68, I think)
I know it must be possible with this creamware synths but I'm to stupid ... ;-)

Thanks Thomas

Have you the Minimax? If so try tweaking some of the "soft lead" categorised presets. Sounds like plenty of sine with tops filtered plus a touch of glide. Alfonso's Unisix module fattens it all up too.

I think so (hey, I have nearly all plugins ...). I will try it tomorrow.

To be honest I dont want to copy amorphis. I'm looking for a nice synthy sound that plays a second melody line to a guitar. Amorphis sound is only the closed example of what I have in mind.

Yeah, Minimax is the answer, it's a sort of '70 classic rock-prog mono lead.
Don't forget the glide that features the 70% of character of this sound.

Look this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2T1oKGynRVs
and listen at 1:25 min and 2:54
a pure '70 italian classic minimoog lead ;o)
4PC + Scope 5.0 + no more Xite + 2xScope Pro + 6xPulsarII + 2xLunaII + SDK + a lot of devices (Flexor III & Solaris 4.1 etc.) + Plugiator.

Btw. since the thread came up:

I uses the lightwave sound mentioned above.
But the minimax was what I was looking for. But in mix we decided to don't use i, but I used it somewhere else instead.
(I often record different sounds and decide in mix what to use. Some times I use even all spread over the stereo image. Sometime the one that I only recorded for test ...)

It sound a lot like ARP prosoloist kind of sound ( aka some tony banks lead synth on selling england by the pound ) .
you can easily emulate it with the minimax ( use only one or two vco )
