Help With This Sound

Post by Dr Amazing » Fri Apr 01, 2011 2:54 am

I am trying to match the very beginning of this song "Someone Great" by LCD Soundsystem...

and I can't seem to do it....

It sounds like a Moog to me (but what do I know)....I know they use a Moog Rogue and Moog Taurus II ...I am using a Moog Prodigy...

Thanks for any help!

Which part are you talking about? The analog bass at the beginning sounds somewhat like an Elka Synthex to me. The rest could be anything.

Maybe an Oberheim SEM. At the end, the sound get buzzier; Sounds like a notch filter.

The very beginning ...the bass synth with modulation...

I am fairly certain they use the Moog Taurus for it...I have seen them in concert where they go into this song from a bass synth freak out that is done by the Taurus...

In concert it starts with a sustained bass note and then they add the modulation

I have fiddled with my prodigy but can't figure it out...maybe I am on the wrong machine...
