Hello people! Any ideas on how I can get a sound similar to the one at the beginning of the video? it looks like a heavy brass synth with filter + pitch bend modulation + distortion + reverb, but I tried it all the way, with several ocilators and I can't get anything like it. I'm trying to do that on u-He Zebra, Serum and Arturia plugins. Thank you!

OK it's not perfect but I did this in a few minutes.

play with it more to get a better result but this is how you make it.
you hear a kick at the start of the sound which I didn't make here but just add a kick + reverb

PS I forgot to add a little volume attack to take away the clicky start but add to taste
PPS add some distortion after this.

Hey! your method was very good! very different than I imagined and the result is very close! I tried using 4 ocilators on Zebra and various effects.

my test: shorturl.at/vBCPX

I wanted to develop the technique. But I will follow your method! it looks more effective! thanks for responding to me and create a great tutorial!

Yours sounds awesome sandrokaza! It has its own personality distinct from the trailer you linked. I think I like it better! Now just layer a subby kickdrum with it and boom.
