'warm' lead sound

Post by 607 »

Hey!
I really like the lead instrument used in the Eliminator title theme. It sounds so warm!
Would anyone know how to replicate such a sound? I'm using MaxYMiser, and I'm thinking it might be possible, but I'm not sure how.

Sounds like chorus to me, play a regular square wave on two channels and detune one. (Or maybe slightly delay one of them instead, I must admit I didn't listen that carefully.)

This is exactly what Molofaha said. The guy played the lead on two channels, with detune.

When I try to make smooth synth on the AY, I try a buzzer more often, like here on the beginning
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-T4qar ... EpMzeKT17l_ (but problems with buzzers are - they tune badly in higher frequencies, so I have to stabilize them with the second channel after all, with the regular square, and even then - as You can hear - it has problems with tune/pitch, I gather.

Good luck.
