I'm not familiar with Synth1 but it's an analogue emulation type thing? So sawtooth, a touch of detune, take the low pass filter cut off down, maybe add some chorus. For a free chorus, go here http://www.kjaerhusaudio.com/classic-chorus.php and also have a look at the rest of the guy's classic series.

Have fun.

Re: how to make warm pad sounds

http://www.box.net/shared/10kq9diuhf

using something like synth1 or any other free vst.

synth1 vst has some pad sounds, but what would i require to do to improve them or make them more similar to the example in the above file.

and also , how would I make something from scratch.

I usually use presets and modify them, so i would like some info on best ways to get these pad sounds.

thanks
Stop being so lazy...have you even tried making sounds similar to this on you own? Try to replicate this sound. If after one week you still don't have the sound, then ask.

BTW, you know the "pad" is two seperate sounds right?

That pad sounds an awful lot like a Roland D50 to my ears. Nice sound, albeit a bit dated.

On a D50, this is how they'd do it:

1) A pair of oscillators with PWM, detuned them against each other.
2) 3rd oscillator an octave below at about 50 percent for some added weight.
3) 4th oscillator an octave higher to add some sparkle.
4) Slow attack and long release on amp envelope
5) LFOs used to further add motion with pitch and filter modulation, each with different settings - but be subtle
6) Add chorus
7) Add reverb

On other synths that don't have 4 oscillators, you could layer two pads together.
