I am in need of a whistle VST/VSTi/whatever. As the name says, specifically one that sounds like the signature Metroid Prime one, not really like the one used in Lil Jons instrumentals. (to give one example of what I dont want) Ive tried The Shepard and the 3xOsc trick so far but am unsatisfied and have tried tweaking both, but neither can give me what I want...any suggestions on this? If something can be modified to make this, that would be fine as well. Thanks in advance! ^^

There's a passage in the later Tallon Overworld theme where the whistle is just about the only instrument playing. Try isolating it, and then tweaking pitches and such. Or use it as a model.

It's not the size of the pitch class, but how you use it. -prophet

Forgive me for I have next to no experience in composition et al :P Im not sure exactly how I would do either of the things you suggested...and are you sure that its alone? If memory serves, theres constant ambient background noise throughout that song...

DarkeSword would probably know this, as he's used it in his Metroid Prime mixes. Try sending him a PM.

I know nothing compared to these guys on this site, but yeah I know what you mean about the ambient sort of windy sound throughout. I recall that it cuts off, though around 2:05.

Get an mp3 of the song, import it into Audacity, and select a portion of the wind noise, and do a noise removal. That's the novice method.

Better to PM Darkesword, I'd say.

lol yeah, I didnt remember that. I have the soundtrack, so that would be easy, but ill PM DarkeSword first. I thought perhaps it was some fairly commonly mentioned soundfont or VST or something :P

It's a bent sine wave at really high frequencies. You just put like 12-25% portamento or slide/glide on a sine wave in such a way so it kinda starts out bent, if your synth can do that.

If you can get your hands on z3ta, its in V13 soundbank called Trinilead.
