tremelo/vibrato synth?



Does anybody have or know how to recreate the tremelo/vibrato synth at 0:08?

On a tracker like renoise.

A stab with a psp lexocon and automate repeat time and stomp filter.


Don't know why I feeling triton. But maybe I'll get a hit back.

L8
It sounds really familiar to a preset on an old casio.


Sending to my sound design buddy. He's Mr. Japan synth guy.

fast lfo triggering the filter with lots of resonance. any synth will work.

fyi it‘s called wah when the filter is modulated with an lfo. when an lfo is modulating pitch, it‘s vibrato and volume is tremolo.

hmmmm? I would limit the term 'wah' to a bandpass filter modulated manually or automatically via LFO.

Just think about the sound of a lfo modulated hipass. It's far from 'wah'. It's more 'zchiaoo ooaizch'

To me a modulated filter (in general) is called 'modulated filter'. Doesn't mean that it COULD be a wah FX.

Depending on how fast the LFO is (some synths provide an LFO that is able to oszillate into hearing frequencies) the term vibrato changes to FM (frequency modulation) and the term tremolo changes to AM (amplitude modulation). Atleast for synth sound designer :D
Although technically even a vibrato is frequency modulation (well a slow one)

:D

a filter can be modulated by anything. envelope, lfo, oscillator, etc. manufacturers may use different terms but wah was a common term in the synth world afaik, and usually it was an lp filter modulated by lfo.

so?? Did I say something to let you think I disagree on that?
BTW no need to mention oscillator AND low frequency oscillator
Other modulation sources? light, pH value, blood pressure.....

Yeah that might be or not. You're unsure. So do I. All I know is that I never heard the word 'wah' in this context and if someone would say 'Hey Pete, this synth sound need a kind of wah wah you know' I would either grab the pedal or use a bandpass-filter.

I'm interested where you heard of this.

not that this discussion is helping the op in any way, but i just pointed out that "modulated filter" is vague like modulating pitch or volume. vibrato and tremolo is by definition modulated by lfo. and yes wah is a term commonly used in the guitar world and yes "some" wah pedals are modulating bandpass filters. i'm not unsure, it's just not a well defined term because it isn't a thing in classical music. and there is a difference between lfo and oscillator (FM) and there are many more mod sources and destinations. hm blood pressure would be interesting. btw there's actually a light bulb in some fx units like the univibe

Thats all what I was trying to say with my first post about the wah.
only difference I see between LFO and O is the LF technically it's the same.
Yes light bulbs are already used. the volume pedal of my Farfisa Organ got it. And I remeber a kind of 'talkbox' that didn't use the 'signal thru a tube' but a light resistor that you put into your mouth and control the filter by open the mouth
