I've been trying to recreate a specific Kraftwerk pad sound - i thought it shouldn't be too difficult, but i can't seem to get it right. It is the pad sound you can hear in It's More Fun to Compute. Its a bit of a stringy sound, and i can hear it has been used as a chord of sorts. It pops out for the first time at 1m20s:
I have a MiniBrute and several softsynth (Alchemy, most NI stuff and Tone2's Nemesis) and tried to get this string-like sound but for some reason it stays too.. well.. clean (or boring if you will :) ).
Any suggestions on how to set this sound up, where to start and/or what chords/keys have been used for this melody?
