This arpeggio interests me

Post by aphlux » Sun Apr 04, 2010 5:51 pm



About 1:54 into the sound the arp kicks in.
This might just sound retarded, but since i havent messed with my gear in a few months, im just trying to get an ear out for things when I get back in country.
Any thoughts how achieve that sound?
Sounds bit like a compressed delay, but knows.

It sounds like an simple synth arpeggio through a phaser and a few delays. You could also achieve this with LFOs and delays.

Bryan / VAC has some great ideas, but the wrong attitude. At heart he is a very good electronic musician but his brain tells him to act like drug addicted nihilist punk. It's kind of sad... Most of his tracks are ruined by immature "goth" lyrics :(

The instrumental version of this track is beautiful. You can find it on the single.

Not to sure I hear in phaser in there, but it could work. Lfo and some delay would definitley be the ticket.

The phaser effect you mentioned could be the result of layering 2 or more sawtooths with a little difference on the fine tuning, and almost sure, there's a sine LFO with a 4/1 timing affecting the filter.
