Postby Rustymike; Sat Jan 19, 2013 9:47 am Organ sounding synths.

I can't get my head around how to make these organesque type of synths. Is there any tricks to get this sound? I'm pretty much stuck.

the intro synth starting @ 0:06

1:06, 1:27, 2:11 etc throughout the song.

There are tons of organ emulations out there. Why don't you
pick one of these?
Sure, you can load up a synth and modulate
some sine waves with each other until you get an organ sound. Or
mod a square with a saw. With some lfo modulation relative to the
key you press you can try to recreate a rotary speaker... some
dirty noise for the "air" from the pipes.

EDIT: NI Massive has really good additive wavetables. You can
blend in the "organic" harmonics via the WT-Position-Parameter.
With its nice shaping and distortion effects on board you can
come really close to a "real" organ sound. But i would still
recommend to use an "organ synth".

By the way:
Bauer means "Farmer" in german. Pretty funny to hear jay z
yelling "Baauer"! :lol:

I haven't tried any organ emulations because the examples I posted really sound like they are made with saw, squarewaves and such from non-organ emulations. I tried NI Massive to create any of these, but couldn't get even close.

Might give a try to those organ emulations, but atm any tips would be very helpful.

Your second and third example could also be described as electric piano
or "soft organ". I agree... this should be a synthesizer.
But the first one... I don't know if you're doing HipHop or EDM...
... is probably a bunch of layered sounds. No Synth can sound like
that out of the box I guess.

I stopped the time for 15 minutes to make you an example. Its not
mixed well or sounds great but I think it can show you a little
bit about sound design in HipHop. I didn't compare it with Just
Blazes' Instrumental so don't expect the same sound.

I want to give you the advice to hear the sounds in spectral parts.
The "Basic" is a simple synth, the "highs" come from an organ emu
or an organ sample (resampled) and the "Click" is probably the
hammer noise of a piano... and every sample is "gated".

Hope this helps
