Here is a video tutorial that shows how to recreate the popular LMFAO song Party Rock Anthem lead synth sound. A crazy cool sound that is incredibly catchy.
[aside title=”Crazy Sounds!“] A fun and quirky signature sound can lead to a serious music sensation![/aside]
First thing to point out here is actually something brought up by one of the commentors on the original YouTube post. You can achieve a closer match to the LMFAO synth if you change the LFO from a sine wave to a square wave and also modulate the Amp parameter of OSC 1 as well.
The main effect at play here is obviously the LFO, but there are subtle supporting elements to take notice of as well. The subharmonics coming from OSC 2 panel is key. There is also a tube amp and some reverb added at the end of the session to round things out a bit.
This is a sound that has been requested a lot by folks in the MasisveSynth community, so show YouTube user LeviWhalenMusic some support for taking the time to share with us how he did it.
