Hello, I am having trouble getting this pad/lead sound (what would you call it?)
I thought it was just saws with a filter attached to the amp envelope, but no go so far. How do you think to do this? -or perhaps you know the original synth used?

much obliged!

just the first 8s

actually sounds closer to a saw with PWM (multiple oscillators for sure) with two filters in parallel (LP and BP) or two synths layered (one with LP, another with BP, the latter with medium resonance). Also the chord spans over a few octaves, which makes it more full).
I've gotten something similar with 2 saw oscillators, one dropped down an octave and a third PWM oscillator and a slow envelope on a BP filter and slapped some slow medium-depth chorus on it. But gotta get these oscillator levels right, might even modulate those. I also added slight negative FM on the filter (using DIVA here), adds some nice high frequency harmonics. But I'm quite biased here, I absolutely adore filter FM hehe

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/15577386/pad.wav here's how it sounds (careful with those levels, accidentally normalised it)

Wow, great job. Thanks for the input. That sounds in the right ballpark, and I'm going to try and duplicate what you've done here.
