Hey everyone, my question relates to a specific sound heard in Wolfgang Gartner's "Fire Power"


It's the sound at 1:25 to 1:26, here it is sampled:


It's also heard in "VDE 128BPM Economic Melody Root A"


Does anybody here know how to re-create this sound, and could help out? I'd really appreciate it.

I'm using Live.

Looking forward to any replies, thanks a lot in advance. -V.

That sound is (probably) a VST Instrument or synth. From the sounds of it, it could have been created from the Nord Lead 3. A similar sound (but obviously higher pitch) is present as the main lead on Yeah Yeah by Bodyrox feat. Luciana, which was created with the Nord Lead 3. Take a look here for how that was created.

Hope this helps, good luck.

    Haha, I was going to post almost the exact same. It sounds like a Nord Lead indeed, though you could probably make it with any VA Softsynth. And the Bodyrox lead sprung to mind as well, which a friend of mine recreated 1:1 on his Nord.

It's an arpeggio or step-sequensing of an subtractive synth (based in filters and pitch). The Nord Lead-line is good at this, though it actually can be a heavily processed Moog (my best guess: MiniMoog or Little Fatty) or KORG MS-20 too!

Good bite on that one :-)
