Vangelis - Chariots of Fire bass and lead?!

Anyone knows what synths are used in Chariots of fire?
Especially the bass and the string lead (it's the first two things you hear)

ENYA Arpeggio!?

I'm totally in love with the epic track 'Storms in Africa' by Enya.

Help is greatly appreciated. :mrgreen:

80s synth suggestions!?

Hello! I'm craving some new music at the moment, and as of late I've started to fall more and more in love with 80s mellow synth-based music. However, my knowledge in this genre is somewhat limited and now I want to find some real great stuff, and I'm wondering if any of you can help me. I'm already...

Thanks everyone! I've played around with your suggestions and I've gotten a sound I quite like. Other than what is mentioned above, pitchbend really nails the sound.

Thanks, you guys are the best!

Yeah, maybe what makes it magical is the mixing.

But can anyone be a bit more specific?

Thanks.

Boards of canada synth

Hi again. I know this is a bit general, but does anyone have any suggestions as to what kind of sounds Boards of Canada uses on this track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fAGC9ODl2Y (Bocuma) I'm mostly reffering to that flute-like sound that carries the melody. Not the jittering one. Help is much a...

Arpeggio Help please!

I just watched this cool video of a guy playing around with the awesome monome. Anyhow, he's playing around with two samples, one being The Chemical Brothers 'Block rockin beats'. But from where does the arpeggio that comes in at 1:16 come from, and how can I recreate that wonderful sound? I underst...

Please Help! Delayed 80s/Madonna Synth?

Hi, it's me again. With my endless ponderings with request for help. This time around I'm trying to mimic the delayed synths used heavily in the 80s. Something like the one Madonna had on her debut 'Everybody'. But it's more evident in the Annie song 'greatest hit' that samples said song. Give it a ...

He he. Thanks, I was expecting that someone would point that out to me. And one day, I'll get around to learning all that, but right now I'm looking for the easy way out.
Thanks, I'll look them up!
