How do I get the Lead sound from "Gentlemen" by PSY.

I'm working on a instrumental remake, and I cannot recreate the sound for the life of me. I can construct the basic synth, but I cannot get that "tuba" sound. I've tried numerous techniques, nothing works. By the way, I am using Massive.

Really? Yeah, this is the last time I use this site.. I'll be sure to try KVR audio. Maybe those people will be a little more on the helpful side, and a little less on the comedic side.

Dude but they were serious,zebra does those sounds they use in those productions. Sylenth also does those sounds. I am actually pretty sure all sounds used there are in presets in sylenth or in one pack Sylenth is imo most used synth among people that make such music i believe....Check it and browse through presets, youd be suprised how many of them are directly used in a lot of such tracks.

But what if KVR tell you its also Zebra? Kind of screwed then aren't you? Unless of course you decide to follow the advice you've proactively saught - so what you got to lose by trying Zebra, if it allows to create said instrumental then only your dignity

I doubt it. They'll be less helpful and a lot less funny.

I think you just need a thicker skin... it's like going to a latin music forum, then asking how to sound like Macarena. Or asking on a rock'n'roll forum about the mics used in MMMbop. You know you're gonna get ridiculed a bit.

I heard if you play Gangnam Style backwards it becomes Gentlemen.

This link will wash you eardrums out if you accidentally hear any Psy songs.

I really don't see the problem with it. Chances are it will just give the person a better understanding of making patches and how doing certain things will effect the sound. Not everyone who asks about how to get someone's sound is trying to rip off a person's style.

Oh come on! You're not being fair...to comedy clubs. I can't think of any that would tolerate my lame humor.

Think my jokes are bad? You should hear my music.

I heard that one on NPR a couple of weeks ago in my car. I almost jumped out - while I was driving.

Agreed. When I started doing EM, I was totally into Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk. I replicated tons of their stuff and don't think I ended up being a soundalike at all. Just learning from great examples.
Then again, in this case, I doubt PSY did much other than scroll thru some presets until one caught his attention and worry more about how to promote the song than any creative sonic aspect.
I could be wrong however, because I am not going to listen to it. Ever. If I can avoid it.
The other thing is, nobody told me how to make sounds. I just experimented and learnt how to create certain sounds, so just TRYING is sometimes better than asking. You won't get your answer as quick perhaps, but you will learn more on the way and have a lot of fun.

Simple fact that I heard his first song and it is all I dislike in pop today, so I can safely assume he hasn't changed much between then and now. there is plenty of unpopular music I dislike and likewise, i like quite a bit of popular music. Fabricated pop like this is just not my thing (certainly of no interest to me sonically)

The way the vocals work with the reverb and get to the center of the mix is very well done.

Psy is a pretty talented guy: attended Berklee, he writes and produces his own music, and directs his own videos...
I have no doubt BUT his first song was just annoying to me on many levels so I find it hard to see why I would spend time trying to understand what he does.
Now if I was into that type of pop I would no doubt try to understand why it works and see if I can use something in my work, but I'm not.

I'd say he seems to have more talent as a video director than as a musician IMHO. That's the money there.
