Sup?

Does anyone know what are the basics of creating contemporary good-sounding dnb leads and synths? Can´t find much information on the internet. :/ I am using mainly Sytrus to design unique sounds so advice could be more FM synthesis oriented.

I'd say Yukon's example sounds like 2 saw waves detuned about 20 cents apart from eachother. Some chorus on that, and a bit of overdrive distortion for some edge.

Pretty standard stuff.

I did experiment today creating synths and leads and I actually managed to recreate Netsky detuned saw lead and some more, but what I found is that I suck at making decent melodies. :D I suppose thats why my tracks sound shit although instruments are quite ok.

Any tips on liquid synths/leads? Is there any good preset pack (Massive/FM8/whatever) or something so that I can reverse engineer and get some insight?
Not that I know of. But pick up a dance preset pack, like mainstream shit, that will have leads that you could use, lots of saws.
