I’m trying to get the sound on my Minilogue and on Synth1 but can’t get the waveform quite right or the Attack, maybe sounds like an edited preset on something first used in this artists songs in 1995.

At the beginning at 0:14 is the same sound without resonance. I can’t figure what Synth it’s from ROMpler wise. This is from the same time period. I’m trying to make recreations of these songs with software.

seems like it has a pitch envelope and lots of high-pass filters, or maybe I don't know what you are refereing to exactly, please cut the sound and upload it

Has the lead clearer at 0:07 actually pretty well isolated.

Edit: I've gotten close to this using SQ8L and the wavetable like a reed and 2 low pass and a high pass filter. So I think Margo S. (The instrumentalist on the tracks) must be using an Ensoniq SQ-80/ESQ-1/TS-10 on the tracke.

Bump,
If anyone can try to remake this sound on Massive or SQ8L better than I can it should be great.

OK so...

I did somewhat of an attempt in Synth1

the midi I'm sure is fine.
The timbre is off but I used FM to create weird harmonics.
A little bit of portamento and the filter moving up + some keytracking.
It's similar-ish but if you play more with the FM and try the saw/square/triangle etc you'll probably get even closer.

Preset is in fst (FL Studio)
and fxp that you should be able to load in any DAW (I think)

PS WHY are you making these weird oldschool sounds?
