Nord Lead 2x...

Who knows what the patch number is for the infamous little jon sound? It was in an article I read a while back but have not been able to find it anywhere!

Well... just give us a few bars of the sound because the Nord has been used alot. Set it off with 1 bar and I might can help.

Are you sure it is from the Nord Lead 2. He uses a Novation A Station that might have that sound in it. Also, I think there is a similar patch on the Yamaha Motif.
Besides who cares what he uses. It is played out. Make a sound of your own. That way you can make other people want to copy you. Tweak them presets too. Run them through a guitar box or an ITB effects unit. Change the sound then add that back to your track. Layer it with the original track and hard pan. Pimp that **** out in the mix.....
Go crazy no rules in Hiphop.

No,No,No...I could give 2 ****s if I sound like Little Jon. I saw a picture in an interview a while back with a patch number written on a piece of tape which was stuck to his nord and was just wondering. Why does everyone always have to hate on peoples posts anyway? Thats my biggest pet peeve ever. If you feel the urge to be an ass go post on underground hip hop!

Wait a minute!! you mean all these rap guys aren't really synth experts!!!??? you mean they just pick a preset, and if it sounds good, run with it?!! wow, i'd 'a never guessed!!

while we're on this subject, i know everyones feelin "snap ya fingers" but honestly, as soon as i hear that ****in sound, i wanna turn off the song... how MANY TIMES is this guy gonna make the same song!!!! I mean, i thaught that young joc beat was bad, but at least they're playing with a slightly different synth sound.... I mean "yeah" is like what two years old now?? and we're still ripping it off??? I'm all about accepting what the public likes as being good, but c'mon people, NOBODY'S bored of this **** yet???
