[Production Challenge] How to recreate this FM lead?

Hello everyone! Nice to meet you all, I'm Marcos and this is my first post in this forum and it seems the adequate place to start this challenge. So I've started producing a couple of months ago some fast bmp psytrance with Ableton live and there are still some sounds that I can not recreate nor have the synth knowledge of how to approach it.

I would like to create a similar lead to this one from Fobi : ( the lead starts after 0:45), it's definitely an FM sound probably made with Albino but the tricky thing I can not figure out is how is possible to make such a complex melody, any ideas on how to replicate it will get a candy and be proud to be helping humankind :mrgreen:

Thanks again and good life!!

Welcome to Triplag mdpianelli
Well I havent tried it on albino, but the same basics that where explained in this topic can be done with albino

Well if you talking about the FM lead, that is played there, I think its not that compicated, its the basics are to draw to melody on the piano roll, then starting record modulation on cutoff, resonance etc...

Play with it, and update us if you made any progress :ura

Keep working, and feel free to ask questions share stuff :dance

and becuase you are a new member I want to suggest:
01. choose yourself a nice AVATAR, can be made in the User Control Panel

albino while your friend for this one just move the notes up and down the scale to get the sounds differnents and maybe link a lfo to the cutoff too get this ringingvibe with the sound.
use diffent note lenght for the ritme and slide feeling

best if you check a tutorial from andy for this on the tube

lots of cool tricks brought with humor

also I would automate the frequency of the modulating osc . so you get different timbres (the frequency of the squelches in this case) while the melody is playing ... i don't know how to do that in albino but i hope this helps
