Interested in creating the pluck from Annagramma - Phoenix, I do have Ableton (standard), sylenth, spire, serum and vps avenger.

Track is here

pluck starts from the very beginning (its like a guitar?)

Relatively narrow pulse wave with a low pass filter modulated with a pluck style envelope.

Sounds like there might be a bit of pitch modulation using a similar kind of pluck envelope too.

I thought you were going to ask about the girl in the video. As for the pluck that's something definitely achievable in Spire with some tweaking using the advice Tehlord posted above.

I am not sure how to start, lol? I dont want to sound as a dick, but I am very beginner to sound design and when producing I mostly use presets already done.

Thanks in advance

I'll try to replicate the sound later in Spire, and then i'll post the patch here. I'm not very good in sound design either, but, the sound seems to be easy enough for my skills. :D

Here it is, including a MIDI file of the melody. I would say, the sound is about 99% there, i had some problems replicating the reverb sounds, so, it doesn't sound quite as "cavern-ish", rather clean, and, the MIDI file is a bit wrong as well, but, it's enough for just playing around with it a bit, i guess. :)

this sounds really close, thanks a lot it should work as my starting point, no need to be 100% the same :)
