Re: Making analog-type strings on SY77

Fm is the key- not AWM here. Do a double FM structure, utilizing a soft, detuned saw sound (go brassy- soft and breathy-brassy if you're using a disk preset). Detune -12, +12 fine points on each and then run both through the LPF, set at about 44. Run slow envelopes, hit it with chorus and delay, and...

Re: Analog strings from something besides a "string machine
