In Cubase, I want to recreate James Blake "Retrograde" synth chorus opening (starting at 1:36). To be precise - since there are several synths layered there - I specifically want this one (this is a recreation link, but not in Cubase. this one is the same).

Since I'm really new to this, I'd be satisfied with a pretty basic recreation rather than an advanced one.

As a simplification, I thought about just making a volume automation that just increases the volume from low db to high db. However, it doesn't get the right effect.

What's a basic way to achieve this?

  • Cubase is a DAW, not a synthesiser.  Do you have a synthesiser plugin?  If so, isn't everything covered in detail in the tutorial videos you link?
