Cee Lo Green- SYNTH?!
 
Any ideas how to get that synth sound that goes throughout his song "Bright Lights Bigger City"? AWESOME sound, any info on how to possibly achieve this in Logic would be really cool.

Thanks!

Sounds like a pretty standard polysynth sound...maybe try out the ES P or ES 2 and check out some different presets - or build your own with some square/saw waves. A mild attack time, but not too slow.

I actually came decently close I think...I'll post a clip a bit later. Thank you!

Ask Ben, he's on here. I'm sure he'll tell you how he did it.

Sounds really good! Maybe a bit on the bright side if compared to the original.
Is this ES2?

I like this song of Cee. But im not gona buy the CD - This F-word stuff is way to annoying...

It is actually ESX24!

The album is great, the other songs are nothing like the F U song. Definitely consider it, I recommend it!howdy

That bassline really reminds me of "Billie Jean"!

any chance you can share that patch for ESX24? Or tell us how you got it.

Definitely! And the synth hits are exactly the same as the ones in Billie Jean as well! Both great songs.

I really wish I had the ear for figuiring out how synth sounds are built. Just spent like an hour trying to make one using thor in reason and im completely lost. Great tune though, love playing it now i've got a close-ish sound!
