Re: What is this sound? Some kind of LFO synth? Song: Heart of a Lion, Kid Cudi
I dont know what you mean by "some more even harmonic osc". When you say reverb you mean last in chain? Not concerned with the reverb so much in this case.
Of course it has a portamento, but thats more of the note value and not the actual sound( though it could be controlled within the synth).
I think there's something going on with an lfo on the filter but I dont think its quite the way you say. I dont think its created by lfo on a bandpass. I think its a tonal sound not just a noise. If you know for sure you are correct would you mind writing a more step by step and possibly prove it to the both of us by creating a sample of it? I've been trying to no avail to mimic the sound, only getting somewhat close. I think theres an lfo on the pitch/osc and possibly volume and a filter. its not just a simple sin lfo either as its slightly unstable. I'd love to figure out how to design this sound.
Thanks for the reply
Whatever the technique is for creating this type of sound, it was used on both of the tracks of course in their own altered ways.
Edit: the lana del rey lfo could have some sort of filter sweep along with automated volume going down maybe some kind of parallel track, the interpretation of that part can be ambiguous, but that too is less the actual sound and more of effects after the actual sound. The second appearance of the lana del rey lfo (first appearance at 1:30 and second at 1:40) is a good example of "effects after the actual sound" as the second appearance is the same as the first lfo with obvious distortion and maybe some hidden effects.
