How to make this (simple) bleep/sonar sound?

Post by Citizen » Mon Aug 22, 2016 6:22 am

How do I make this very simple bleep/sonar sound at the start of this track?

Preferably with Operator or Analog - but any common synth will do, I'm sure?

Hi,

here is my preset for a sonar sound, I built it years ago, but it works fine, for my two cents.

On the first pic are details from the filter section, 2 pic is for the details of the oscillator 1 section.

Play with the filter frequency, when you are ready.

Sonar sounds to me close to a ringing/self oscillating filter with key follow turned down so no tracking across keyboard. So feed a little noise into a filter (even if some digital va don't need noise for filter to ring it sounds a bit better imo) crank up res to full and sweep cutoff to taste.
