    I know, another "how do I imitate an artist" thread.
    But learning about this will help my synthesising skills so ;)

    So yeah I'm just wondering how they might make those classic kinda synth sounds, like in;

    1.27

    yep, dig around acid presets from your synths and start fiddling some knobs!

    Alternatively just start from a basic saw reese sound and start filtering with different combinations, should be pretty easy.

    Can't find anything for that just a few "in the studio" things, humourous but ultimately kind of useless :p
    I've had a look at some acid presets though, thanks for the help.

    There is nothing wrong with trying to recreate the sound of another artist, i do it all time, it challenges me and helps with inspiration. It's when people make music that sounds exactly the same when it's abused lol..
