Flume Synths

Rightio, so I've been listening to this track and I still can't figure out what sort of synths this guy is using for the

To me the intro sounds like a Softsynth, wavetable Sine/Triangle with an inverted envelope modulating the pitch from 50cents or so?

I'm guessing the Synth during the chorus, saws layered? with slow-ish attack?

Please Enlighten me

I think he uses Ableton. I used a trial once, one of that synth had pretty much Flume sound. Also i think they're square waves, not saw. Experiment with pulse width of square waves. Get Syntorial to learn programming and recognizing synth sounds. Even the trial version is worth it.

various types of this synth can be made quite easily, it's more or less just detuned a half step or close to. Alot of this sound though comes from the chords themselves, if you're trying to create the synth using chords that you have and constantly trying new presets it may not work well. I recommend using sylenth for Flume's type of synths because there are alot of similar synths. I have a similar sound in the start of a song i made here except it's not detuned...


feel free to ask me about how i made anything also!

the dude also said in one interview that he is able to use sylenth1 in a very nice way, creating every kind of sound he wants

so also those "super saw"-ish sounds he often uses make me also think about that synth too.
