[aside title=”Classic Sounds!“] A touch of retro in a new style song is always well recieved![/aside]
YouTube user SteezTracks is back with another great sound to share with all of us. This time its all about the old style funky synth stabs, with a little vibrato tossed in to help bring it into the here and now. Retro sounds like this one come back into fashion and stay relevant for a reason, they sound good! And it only takes a few minutes to make the sound, so it’s also easy to fall back on.
Two oscillators, a lowpass filter, a little reverb, some chorus and a little noise. This along with some shaping of the main amp envelope get you the main sound of the synth stab we are after here. He then makes the overall sound bigger through the introduction of a second voice, adding some panning width and a small amount of phasing through pitch cutoff. After that, it’s finding the right mix of vibrato to polish it off with and we’re done.
