    I dislike how my creative ability is put to a stop due to shitty synths, is there anyway to make synths close to these synths:



    Any advice greatly appreciated!

    I mostly use Massive and nuklear if that helps?

    There is always a way. Massive is an amazingly diverse tool. Just playing around for 5 minutes i got this: (actually 15 because fl crashed twice)

    i think its somewhere between a sine and square, mono synth with maybe a touch of chorus. Its played in a 2 key chord. Emphasis is on a fast attack, and a decent amount of decay to get the pluck noise. reverb, sine shaper, cutoff & whatever are all to mute it a bit. The voicing I set at 16/2.
