Name of high-pitch sine wave melodies?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Trance tracks usually have a high-pitch sine wave melody such as here or here. Any name for these kinds of melodies? (it's not a lead, it's not a bass or a string...).

Thanks,

 

;)

i have experimented with this some time ago and found it best to just take high pitched saws/squares and filter them down to nearly a sine wave. you can also use a sine oscillator, but otherwise you can add a bit of attack with the envelope or add a bit of character by opening the filter up a little bit.

There's quite a few of them on Astral Projection's Another World album.

Triangles are better imo, but still, I would rather take a sine from a digital synth with an actual sine osc than an analog triangle, for a more "true" sine feel. Imho, of course.

Hum...Yes, they do that when you're on acid :D

 

So you're basically telling me you cannot even notice that if you are 'sober' ? ... God please take me out of this place lol

your title has the answer to the question you are posting in your thread

 

its a high octave square, saw or sine wave (based on what sound you are after)

Oh, man, this is pretty good, and sound quite MWNN!! Only suggestion is emphasizing the kick drum, and adding pre-delay to the high hat. Nice bass and nice sinewave as well!! I wonder what Martin Freeman would think if he found out we've come close to his style, ah ah!! :D
