if you have anything like Sylenth1 this is realtively easy to make.

1st Osc: triangle wave with 4-8 polyphony. Add very slight detune. 2nd Osc: Sine wave with 2 polyphony, very slight detune.

Turn attack right down, turn sustain almost all the way down, turn up decay to taste, turn up release to about 0.2-0.5 seconds.

Now for the muted sound to really come to life add a Lowpass filter and place the peak at about 30hz (change this depending on the sound). turn up the resonance a little bit and then that should be all done. EQ and compress to taste. enter image description here

  • Hi, first of all thanks for helping me, I really appreciate it. I'm not an expert of sylenth1, could you send me the fxp file?

  • I'm afraid I'm not going to be near a computer with a DAW for the next few days. This sound is a very basic one to create however, It should be easy enough to make if you follow those instructions. Let me know if you have any problems however Commented Apr 3, 2018 at 15:23
  • Ok, no problem! I tried but nothing, I don't get that sound

Sounds like pizzicato strings or a muted nylon guitar to me.
