What is the VST used in this tune ? Starts at 1:30 !

I'm on a project and would like to get that smooth sound.

I'm using Synth1 which sounds very good so far but not as good as the lead in this tune :/

Thanks :wink:

Sylenth1 or Spire are perfect for those kind of sounds.

Synth1 is more than adequate for this sound.
People throwing out synths is like saying which car to drive to the shop to buy some milk.

You'll get there either way with any synth mentioned but also with Synth1.
Just use the right chords. And it's a saw pluck + delay (use reverb EQ etc to taste.)

That's it!

Let me know if you need help but it depends on the chords you're using in your track

You could get there with layering with Synth1. Out of the box, it sounds much too thin for such a thick sound.

Although, listening to it, i'm pretty sure they layered a couple of sounds as well. I tried to recreate the sound with Spire yesterday, but, couldn't exactly ge the same tone. Might give it a shot again today. The delay (which adds a lot to the sound) is easy peasy, of course.

By The Way

VincentPrice probably didn't notice that this thread was OLD AF.

And my dumb-ass just went along posting a reply as if it mattered.

Maybe the Synth1 should've given it way...?

But Synth1 is more than capable of this sound and I have "good" paid synths but for this sound it's not needed

To post a reply to an 8 year old thread is pretty.... special
