    Help: searching for a sound...

    ...actually for two.

    In the short sample below there's a deep synthesizer sound at the
    beginning, later some very compressed drums.

    Do you know a library/softsynth that has a similar synthesizer sound?

    Same for the drums, or a plug that modifies a clean drum sound in the
    same way. I've already tried a combination with eq and compressor but
    wasn't THAT happy with the result.

    Thanks in advance for any information.
    Tom

    Listen to sample
    .
    Edit: link changed, should work now. Reason: see next posting.

    Tom, those sounds are fairly standard fare on most synths. The bass is probably an analog sawtooth wave with the cutoff filter turned way down (or it could be a straight sine wave, but I doubt it).
    The pad on top is a standard pad - pretty much anything should have that.

    As for the drums, different synths/loops have all kinds of different ways of getting that sound. If you want to use real drums, use your pitchbend and pitch those suckers way up. Then process them as you see fit.

    I would go for a fully programmable synth (so you can get exactly what you want). Wusikstation, Korg Legacy Digital Edition, and so forth are good choices - even FruityLoops (and its addons).

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks a lot for this info, Brian.
    Especially the use of pitchbend for the drums is something I wouldn't
    have thought of.
    Have a nice weekend.
