A question about a patch

Post  Pharlopez on Thu Dec 04, 2008 2:49 pm

Hi! It's my first post here. First of all, I want to greet all of you.

I've got my Omni last week...one week without sleep Shocked and I'm very impressed with this synth. Now I think it's time to explore the synthesis capabilities but I don't have so much experience. I want my first patch to be like the one in Jean Michelle Jarre's Oxygene, kind of a laser shot with variable speed. I think it should not be very complicated to do, but need some help of you to put me in the right direction: which waveform is the most suitable, should i modulate the pitch or the cutoff, other things to take into account?

Thanks in advance!

I am not familiar with Jarres music but for a typical lazershot sound the ringmodulator is a good place to start.
Modulate the frequency of the ringmodulator with an lofo if you want a cyclic pattern in the lazer or use a simple envelope if you are looking for one pitchglide up or down.
Waveform is not so important-you could use a saw or a sine-its the sweeping frequency of the ringmodulator that does the trick.

Hi, I've been testing a little and achieved interesting results with sample Prophet 5 Thip Filter, modulating Pitch coarse depth with an LFO and the LFO rate with the modwheel/aftertouch. Closer but I'm still far from achieving the desired result. Now playing with the ring mod, wave shaping and envelopes...fun, fun, fun R2D2 Laughing

Glad 2 hear that you are enjoying Omnisphere.
I think i know now what you mean with Lazershots.
That type of sound can be generated with a hi resonant lowpassfilter that is modulated with an envelope with a short decay.
Its the typical Kraftwerktype electro percussion sound.

Good luck with your sound design experiements and it would be awesome if you will share some of your patches eventually.

Namaste
Hans
