I finally nailed the synth tone from Ginuwine's "Pony"!

    After half an afternoon twirling knobs and tweaking sliders on my Q-Tron+ and my Bass Microsynth I got real close to the tone but it still didn't have that "gagging frog" quality to it that gets everything thumping.

    Then, serendipitously, I accidentally bumped my Metal Zone and there was the tone in all it's toad-vomiting glory!

    Now I can't wait to transcribe a guitar part and choreograph a routine for a bunch of ugly white dudes to jam this song live. :hyper::hyper::hyper:

    Ok, obviously you have a plan, but I still have to ask - Why? I assume that its for humor purposes only. Otherwise, this thread makes me feel all Atozy. atozsmileyfl5. atozsmileyfl5. atozsmileyfl5. atozsmileyfl5. atozsmileyfl5. atozsmileyfl5. atozsmileyfl5. atozsmileyfl5. atozsmileyfl5.

    Also, as terrible as that song is, forum rules dictate that you provide clips. ;)

    I love this song. It's like a guilty pleasure and the ladies love it. It WOULD be purely for humor purposes to break it out live but all of my band's music has a humorous bent (four-chord tributes to wives who can't cook, sea-shanty whaling tunes, etudes to Happy Meal wielding extraterrestrial visitors, new wave laments about Bell's Palsy, etc) and the ladies will be shaking booty.

    Once I get it all orchestrated, I'll post a clip for sure!

    Sounds like you should start a Vomcore side project....

    Settings? I run a BSM into an original Q-tron. Like to see what you did there.

    I like turtles.
    Sounds like a keyboard through a talk-box to me...
     
  8. Seriously, it just sounds to me like the "Synth" setting on a BSW, or a Digitech Talker.
