Hello everyone. I am trying (and have been for years off and on) to get a particular sound programmed for playing with my band. The song is "Why Cant This Be Love" by Van Halen. The sound is the right handed part heard here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=UHatmYtyJhk . I have a Yamaha AN1x and a MicroKorg as VAs. The micro has a sound very close but looses that sync sound after a few notes and then comes back. My theory is this and please, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. It's an Osc sync patch with osc 2 constantly having it's pitch oscillated by an LFO. I'm assuming that's what makes that nice phat sort of flanging/phasing sound. The problem (I think) with the patch in the micro is that eventually the LFO brings back the pitch of osc 2 to the point of it no longer being detuned from osc 1 and when that happens, the sound loses it's distinct character that makes it so phat to begin with.
I've always prided myself with being a pretty good programmer and being able to emulate almost anything I hear on CDs sound-wise but this one has me stumped. Anyhelp would be much appreciated. I also know for a fact that originally, Eddie used an OB-8 to make this sound. Thanks for the help.
