Knife Party LRAD - Lead sound

Post by justchris86 » Wed May 29, 2013 9:00 pm

Hey guys, So in the track LRAD from knife party the lead is insane. I am wondering if any know hows to get a sound like this going.

Im stumped to be honest. I know its part percussion but is there synth added to it as well?

Not trying to copy the track or anything just want to come up with something similar. That progressive house kind of percussion track.

Anyways any leads would be greatly appreciated.

heres the track!

Envelope modulation and sync. Layer and layer. Prolly use a rack.
Just a hunch.

top octave is a square wave with an envelope modulating pitch or maybe some portamento
next octave down and maybe 1 more down is some grungey saw wave sync with some chorus or something

it's not a great sound imo - if you go through the presets on Massive and Operator and Analog and layer them together in an instrument rack you will get something close
