The soundtrack from the Donkey Kong series on the SNES (Super Nintendo) is definitely one of the best for me. That's why I want to know how to reproduce some sounds.
The brass/pad (?) starts at 0:36 and I really wanna know how to make the same exact sound. I assume that it was sampled because most music for SNES was made with a music tracker if I'm not mistaken. But what synth produces that kind of brass? What would the patch be and how many oscillators are used and in what waveforms?
I'm also very curious to know how to reproduce the humming sounds at 1:24.
Could it be that the orchestra hits you hear is from Roland's VSC3? What effects are being used? Or is it layered? The dry sound from VSC3 sounds thin and thus doesn't sound the same as in the DK example.
