Dub Reggae - Dub Siren etc

Postby thefruitfarmer » Tue May 15, 2018 8:12 pm

Getting an interest in dub reggae recently.

Searched and found this old thread.

https://www.soundonsound.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=16228&hilit=dub%20reggae#p143701

Does anyone know how to create dub siren type sounds on a synth....

Sounds like this

I have an old Novation Nova and a Waldorf Pulse. I can route an envelope to the pitch control to get a rise and fall, which will get the police siren type sound.

Has anyone any programming tricks they would like to share?

Many Thanks

That's routing an LFO to the oscillator pitch. If you use an envelope, you'd have to keep re-triggering it to get the repeats, an LFO just goes on until you lift the key. You might also be able to get the LFO to sync to an incoming midi clock signal on your synths.

What Dave said. LFO to pitch and a bit of release gets you there.

Or buy one http://www.rigsmith.co.uk/shop.php

Thanks both, LFO to pitch and some release gets in the ball park.

Thanks for the link, buying one is probably the easiest way to get the authentic sound.

Like their spring reverb/echo unit too.
