Thaanksssssssssss :D

I need to learn from this.
How on earth did you get that perfect sound with those instruments?
Speaking of instruments, what instruments/synthesizers did you use?

:O

I could listen to this all day...

MithyxSounds responds:

You asked the magic question!

I used Sylenth1, Synthmaster, Sytrus, Synth1 (a free synth!), and ODSay. (also a free synth!)

Synthmaster is the most important one though. It has custom waveforms which are designed to emulate waveforms from classic synthesizers (think Moog, Roland, Prophet, etc) and they sound pretty accurate!

The other important thing is that a lot of the instruments use filter cutoff envelopes. You should try turning up the resonance to get a sound akin to the bass, or the wubs in the intro.

I guess the last thing is to study the music theory behind 80's songs which people may be getting nostalgia from, which I did. Many of them didn't use just basic major and minor chords. They used 6th, 7th, 9th, 11th, and 13th chords. Using these less conventional chords in combination with the other tips is a great way to create this type sound.

Hope this helped! :D
