Default How to get a stab sound like this

quite quirky sounding. Guess there is at least 2 oscillators going on (one of which detuned, but Im not sure by how much) with pitch modulated by the attack and sustain of an envelope to achieve the bend trick that adds to the sounds initial portion. But Im stumped after that...



I'm not after the arpeggio line. Just the stab that comes in every so often...

Anyone got any ideas ?

PS, I'll send Mike Gray the link to your query.. you never know.............................................. ......................?
And, PPS, if it's the sound I think you're referring to, it sounds vey much like the 'Flawless' track by 'The One' (as does its bassline I think too), which *scratches head* I think was originally inspired by the Gary's Gang disco track 'Keep On Dancing'..

That is the sound I'm after. You're on the right path. hat's not the sound I want exactly. But from it It should be easy to get it exactly how I want.

I hate 'Flawless'. Shockingly camp record. I never got why it did so well. But in all fairness they must have made a good bit of money off it. It's always used on TV makover shows or even DIY programs where they fill your house with painted mdf...

I got closer with an LFO modulating the pitch but still sounds nothing like the original stab.

Use a sampler?

I might be looking more at modulated tape delay and saturation type fx and filtering rather than synth modulation to recreate this - think old school guitar pedals perhaps and a messed with tape?

@Ed Had a reply back from Michael Gray.. he responds..

From what i can remember i used a Juno 106 with modulation which only has one Oscillator and Lexicon reverb. My inspiration for that was Tom Tom Club "Wordy Rappinghood" Hope this helps!

I'm pretty sure I have a 'basic' video tutorial for creating these type sounds!

I'll dig it out for you mate

You sir, are a scholar and a gent.

That reference to Tom Tom Club is very valid. As part of Full Intention, they ripped that track for a production under another alias (M - So Fly) which I really liked. But it borrowed the other elements, not that quirky stab..

Time to role out the TAL Juno and some reverbs then. Craig. Find that vid plsssss

That vids real useful mate thanks. Bust out the TAL Juno II and had that sound going in a few minutes Now to try it on a real juno haha!

If only there was someway to root the LFO rate to the mod wheel so I could bring it up and down e.g. so it isnt modulating right from the transient of the chord! I tried using the time delay for the LFO but it doesn't go just 'low' enough, ends up making the mod come in too just a bit too late unfortunately!

You might not be able to do this in TAL Juno. BUt what about building the same patch in something Like 'Thor' in Reason...which has a nice modulation i/o table.
