For many years I've been searching for a specific "vocal pad" sound. One that was heard in many hits from the 70's.
3 songs come to mind that utilized it. 10CC's "I'm Not In Love", Billy Joel's "Just The Way You Are", and James Taylor's "Shower The People".
At least, I'm assuming those all came from the same source, because they sound so much alike.
I've been able to replicate it fairly well using sounds from SOV's "Pop Stacks", but the original had somewhat of that "lo-fi" thing going on, you know?
Does anyone know what the original sound source was? I thought it might be a Mellotron, but I haven't been able to confirm that.
