With a lot of the more catchy synth sounds you hear in today’s music, it’s hard to put a name to so many of them. Today’s post is showing how to create a sweet lead with some 8-bit influence.

A very simple and highly effective sound is shared by YouTube user iamTerris in this helpful NI Massive video tutorial. As with many basic synths such as this, it is quick to design and leaves a ton of room for tweaking and customizing from project to project. Using only one oscillator and an envelope in its most basic form, it allows you to then play with almost every parameter that Massive has to offer to shape, modulate and automate the sound into whatever you can imagine. It’s a great basic patch to have saved for a wide variety of music production.

This sound is made from a single oscillator running a pulse-saw sync waveform, dropped two octaves with the sync parameter being modulated by an envelope. All in all, it takes just a few seconds to get the basic sound dialed in. After that it is up to you what you can do with it. As shown here in the video, adding a tube amp and a dimension expander will increase presence and widen the sound quite a bit. You can also have a lot of fun with using different filters, like a scream or a hipass filter. Or tweak things more drastically with inserts like a hard clipper or bitcrusher alongside some feedback and noise. The possibilities are almost endless, really.

Do you have a really simple sound that you like to use and want to share it with the rest of the MassiveSynth community? Just shoot us a message letting us know and we can chat about how to get your ideas up on the website for the world to see.

Cheers,
