Which sound for Lianna La Havas "What You Dont Do"?

Post by Midimaster »

Hi community...

Today I need your help in defining what I hear in this song at the beginning. And how to simulate this on my Electro 6?

Okay I hear a sound with a lot of Resonance and the Cutoff is moving... but what is the base sound? A string? A Pad? But I can also hear a peak like in a piano sound... I'm helpless.



Do you think I have a chance to get something similar on my ELECTRO 6?

At the moment I'm a little jealous, because I have at home a (cheap) ROLAND JUNO DS from a friend. And here I have an Knob, where I can adjust RESONANCE and CUTOFF in real time. This would be also an awsome feature for a coming NORD ELECTRO 7, or? I would like to have it as a fifth effect group, so I could manipulate PIANOs ORGANs and SYNTHIs in this direction.

This is a first try to simulate it with WahWha on Sound AbbaPad:

You definitely need less resonance. To me it sounds like a LPF (and a bit of HPF as well), not a Wah effect.

Yes I know, that the WhaWha is completely wrong. But the NORD ELECTRO has no FILTERS or adjustable RESONANCE.

That's why I'm asking what also can be done to get a sound transforming like in the video...
