Help trying to create this whistle type sound

Post by djstyleee » Mon Sep 29, 2014 1:03 am

Hi guys,

I've be really struggling trying to program a whistle sound similar to this:

(main melody 1:33, whistle comes in at 1:44)

I thought it would be quite simple to program until I tried it lol. Mine just sounds like a cheap version!
Sine or Square Waveform transposed a couple of octaves
Bandpass Filter with large amount of resonance
Quite a fast attack, full sustain, and short release on AMP
LFO slightly modulating filter cutoff at a fast rate.
Touch of reverb

Any advice would be much appreciated

Try using noise into a BPF or LPF with resonance cranked, and add a small amount of reverb.
