    Hey there guys,

    Chase & Status - Take Me Away. Massive tune. Sure you all know it. This is slightly different to the album version I beleive but that doesn't matter in this case! There are many examples of the sound but this is one of the most popular example I could think of.



    The sound that starts at around 45 seconds in. My knowledge isn't great but imagine this is something to do with a Filter Cutoff?

    I am using Massive but the concept should be the same no matter what synth you are using. Just wondering if anyone would like be an absolute babe and give me some tips on how to create a similar sound, or at least give me some pointers on working towards something similar! :)

    Thats a simple LFO mate, gives it the wobble effect.

    Try maybe a square and triangle wave, maybe a saw too. Then attach an LFO to the filter cutoff.

    Awesome man thanks, I will give it a go a little later :D

    And I assume just change the rate to how I want? Almost as if it was a wobble bass sound I was making

    Yep, exactly like the wobble, just turn the amp of the LFO down a little

    Listening again it is pretty damn basic init?! Still, it's coming up with something simple that sounds great that's the big money question.

    Sounds like it might have just a touch of portomento/glide on it too
