layer different waveforms and transpose some of them +7. some filtering, chorus, reverb and clever eqing. done.

^^


on a more serious note: check out the different piano vsts that are around, play a high octave, apply lots of delay and reverb. the same with flutes or just single sine waves.

for atmospheric sounds, check through the soundbanks and alter the presets to your liking. or even pitch down your lead synth ^^^ and play with the envelopes (you should do that anyways)

hope that helps

^^ yeah that creates some nice harmonic sounds, but be cautious in that the +7 transposed sounds dont overpower the +0 sounds.

i find having many subtle synths playing together or at different times in a loop sounds really melodic and 'liquid'.

as for the bass synth..i think u can use what u like (jump up sounds etc) but be sure to throw in some melodic harmonies in there.
listen to a lot of liquid and try to pick out the little elements used...they all make a big difference to the overall sound.

n big ups for putting my link in ur OP! :D

It's pretty standard to use a steady 1/4th rhythmic bass pulse in the backbeat with a 2step drum pattern, you know, that very straightforward WUP WUP WUP WUP thing like in Danny Byrd f. Netsky - Tonight for example.
