I also own Zebra ... covers a lot of sonic ground, but I doubt that any softsynth will bring you close to a Sub37 (without additonal fx tweaking). My recommendation would be to check out Diva. The softsynth that feels most analogue to me is Repro, but that's a different sound characteristic. Bazille and Oddity2 could also be interesting if you are looking for softsynths with an "analogue" sound.M4lte wrote:Yes, yes I know those tutorials, they're quite good to get the first push in the direction of Bodzins sound.audiot wrote:Stephan Bodzin is mainly using the Sub37. There are a few good tutorials how to get that bodzin sound, even with sylenth1 and arturias moog. As additional dirtyfiers I can recommend SDDR by Klanghelm and WOW2 by Sugar Bytes ... download the demo and just turn up the "hyperbolic"-knob on the init-preset ... ... very underrated product. WOW2 is one of the most analogue sounding fx ... maybe the best for warm analogue distortion and filter.
But I'm actually not searching for Bodzins sound-design itself, but rather the fundamentals of the sound that gets incorporated by Stephan.
So basically I'm searching for a Synthesizer that has the characteristics I like:
Dirty, raw, powerful with tight, grinding and punchy low-end and body and a not so subtle portion of unpredictability.
So basically the perfect synth would be a very own Sub 37 but as I said I'm pretty broke and I do feel that hardware isn't needed yet. I still have to learn, even in the instruments I use for over a few years now like Massive and Zebra 2 which I bought like 4 years ago or so.
By the way, I just bought Cytomic's The Drop and it's incredible. I compared it with WOW2 and while both sound great I liked The Drop a bit more.
It really sounds good and gives everything a nice warm feeling - like it!
Have a nice weekend!
For Filters I can also recommend FilterShaper by Cableguys ... not that warm but the "Sallen Key"-Mode sounds really great.
I need to check out The drop now ...
