I heard Iggy Azalea's song "Fancy" and I really liked the bass pluck. How's it made?

Which synthesizers do you use mainly?

Try a low saw wave with a fast attack and decay, and some low pass filtering.

EDIT: Gave it a quick try on my lunch break and got very close. Just do what I said, and put a downward sloping envelope on the LP filter and you'll be almost there.

Thomni, I use mainly massive and the logic synthesizers.

Alright UKN, here's what I knocked out in about 10 minutes in ES2.

If you add a transient designer, some EQ, and reverb it will get you closer than just the patch. You might also want to adjust the distortion to taste.

It sounds like a real analog synth, I bet you could get it with the Moog lil phatty easily.

The answer of cake builder is accurate for me low pass filtering with quick enveloppe. I put would put a saw + square.

But an important thing for me is the reverb! Without it the sound won't sound as big. Decay time 1.2s, 30%wet, works great for me.

Ahh, but how easily can he get a moog? :D


Glad I could get you started with that patch UKN.

Can you really define the sounding like a REAL ANALOG synth? Hardware vs virtual war starting here?

YummyBeats.com had a remake of Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" bass.

Here's what it sounds like. Not perfect but pretty close.
