How do you get these two sounds?
 
Two questions about this song:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFbmQ...eature=related


1. How to get the pad sound throughout the song? Is it a ton of fx? reverb? It doesn't seem like it is panned wide either, it seems right up in your face kind of.

2. That little rhythm staccato type of sound that goes through whole song, what is the best way to create something like that? You don't play it or just write a part like that into the sequencer right? is that more of messing with the matrix or rpg8?

thanks.

Hey dude, I'm sure you can find a very similar sound in the sound bank somewhere for that pad. It sounds like a basic detuned sawtooth to me... Pretty sure I've got something similar from the Korg Polysix in a matter of minutes.

The staccato sound sounds like 2 or 3 slightly detuned sqr waves with a short amp decay. It sounds like it's notes that ave been played in but the loop is just repeating. Just playing around in the key of the tune on that one. If you don't have the polysix I'd bet you could quite easily get both sounds from Thor and probably the subractor too.

1. The pad is easy to duplicate in Thor, use 2 Multi Osc for your oscillators, that or 1 Analog Saw and 1 multi osc. Play with it, mix and match it with different octaves, Activate chorus in Thor. Play with the Frequencies. EQ some of the frequencies to make it Thin if it's too bassy for your liking. Reverb it a bit. That's it.

2. For that staccato type synth, he used an arpeggiator 2 of them I think and blended the pattern of those 2. he used delay on it with 1/8T steps... The staccato sounds is just Sawtooth, with the Delay(D) and Sustain(S) on both Filter Env and Amp Env dialed all the way down until you get that sound...
