This sound design tutorial shows how to make deep wavy synth keys using the virtual synthesizer Lennar Digital Sylenth1.

The synth preset is specifically designed for slow or mid tempo music but you can use it in whatever genre of music you are into.


OSCILLATOR SECTION: Now to go into detail about this beautiful and wavy synth preset, it makes use of two oscillators and that's Oscillator A1 and Oscillator A2 of Sylenth1.


Implement these settings for Oscillator A1:
  • Voices = 4
  • Waveform = Sawtooth
  • Detune = 28%
  • Oscillator Re-trigger = Enabled
  • Octave = Default

Use the settings below for Oscillator A2:
  • Voices = 4
  • Waveform = Pulse
  • Phase = 68.5 degrees
  • Detune = 28%
  • Oscillator Re-trigger = Enabled
  • Stereo Width = 85%
  • Octave = Default
(That's all you have to do as far as the oscillator section is concerned.)


AMP ENV SECTION: For the Amp Env you simply have to make a few changes and these are listed below.
  • Release Slider = 68%

FILTER SECTION: Change the settings of Filter Side A as follows:
  • Warm Drive = Enabled
  • Filter Control Cutoff = 24%
  • Filter Control Resonance = 27 %
  • Filter A Type = 12 dB Low Pass filter
  • Filter A Cutoff = 0%
  • Filter A Resonance = 11%
  • Filter A Drive = 11%

MIXER SECTION: Adjust the levels the Mixer this way:
  • Mix A Fader = 85%
  • Main Mix Fader = 65%

MOD ENV 1: Map modulation envelope 1 to control the cut-off point of Filter A like so:
  • Mod Env 1 Amount = 100% *Clockwise
  • Attack = 16%
  • Decay = 60%
  • Sustain = 23%
  • Release = 49%
  • Mod Env 1 Mod Destination = Cutoff AB

LFO 2: Make use of LFO 2 (low frequency oscillator) to implement a slight pitch drift this way:
  • Waveform = Sine Wave
  • LFO Rate = 1/8th *Triplet Note
  • LFO Gain = 8%
  • LFO Mod Amount = 4% *Clockwise
  • LFO Mod Destination = Pitch AB

MISC 1: Map Miscellaneous Modulation 1 to control the gain of LFO 2 via the Mod Wheel.
  • Mod Misc 1 Source = Mod Wheel
  • Mod Misc 1 Target = LFO 2 Gain
  • Mod Misc 1 Amount = 8% *Clockwise
