Trying to find a specific synth sound (sound example)

Postby victor5 » Sat Dec 21, 2019 4:26 pm

Hi there!

I'm desperately trying to find a classic type of sound but cant figure how. I have Reason and tons of synths but it's not there.

Here is the audio example (John Lee Hooker - Stripped me naked)
It is the single synth note at 1:16

Would appreciate a lot if someone knows on which vintage synth it was featured, it could help me to find a way of purchase an emulation of this sound!

Do you mean the orchestral stab?

Any of these? https://youtu.be/TEohvxCyp68

Sounds like the classic Fairlight Orch5 orchestra stab, on my little laptop speakers played quietly...

It's an orchestral stab sample. Very popular in its time. Not sure what soft synths you'd find it on, but you'll certainly get it on 90s ROMplers like a JV1080 or a Korg N1R.

Yep, definitely an orchestral stab. The Yamaha SY85 has a couple of them in its presets too: https://youtu.be/ygA-rXGxqQc?t=40

There are plenty of samples out there but if you can't find something to use then let me know what key(s) you need it in and I'll happily record you a few strikes :thumbup:
