Sonic Generation Lead Synth Help!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, Just wondering if they can help me make this Synth sound or find a synth sound.

Really looking for the 'genesis'y type synth lead used in the classic levels from Sonic Generations :)

Any help would be appreciated :D

Heres a youtube clip of one of the songs so kinda get the idea if you dont know what am I on about.

2 detuned saws under notch/bell filter (with the cutoff and/or the resonance automating in some range) with alot of distortion/bit decimation or overdrive.

I do this synth a lot http://soundcloud.com/aires/air3s-thinking (starts at 2:19) and some portamento (gliding) on the synth

Basically what he said. ^^

I don't know what software you're using, but lots of times, depending on the synth plugin, you can find the sound easier. In Logic, the best bet would be ES1. It is a more low quality synth but it can do some really cool stuff and I bet I could create that synth if I spent enough time on it.

To be honest, it sounds like Oscillator Sync to me, which is REALLY similar to detuning two oscillators, the difference is that the secondary oscillator is reset every cycle.

It was probably done on a little phatty, but thats a guess. but it does sound very thick though....

Massive does have a oscillator that does that, but I cant remember.... it maybe in the manual.

Yeah, saw sync. Can't say what the main oscillator is tuned to, it seems to move around a bit. Probably based around the 5th or the octave when there aren't any bends and things.
