greetings...so long ago now I don't have a clue....I play it on a WX something ??? an 11 possibly , Im really not the person to ask about this kind of stuff..if the noise is good I use it..thats it..Im not vaguely interested in anything else, I use the WX something because it makes good noises I can use in songs..the road tech guys sort it all out ..I just pick the noise/sound , write the order the notes go in and apply whatever musical figure I think the songs needs...sorry...infact someone asked me what sax mouthpiece I was using the other day and I couldn't remember..think its Berg Larsonn , I know my horns are made by Selmer that about it... BUT who cares ? thats not the important bit , its all about the music..good luck and thanks for the help Scooby...give yourself a couple of scooby snacks....BT

Thanks BT. I will go with what sounds good. :D

Scooby, I have a Korg Triton Extreme 76 key. I thought I'd ask because this beast has 1000's and 1000's of sounds and it would take me days to go though them. I heard someone said once that if you played each sound for 10 seconds it would take 8 hours to go through them all :D :D

I did find a similar sound yesterday but wife said it was too squeely. Oh dear :(

BT you area man after my own heart! I never know which mouthpiece I have on which instrument and I just DON'T CARE!!!!! It's what comes out the other end that matters! 8)

The Triton is a fantastic piece of kit (I'm a gear slut/nerd) - you should have NO problem finding a "bell" type sound with a GM-square wave on it. Maybe put a Low Pass filter on the bell too, to dull it down.....

Change the envelope to match the decay of the original sound, and you should be pretty close (once you've edited the pitchwheel amount)

As Brian says though, it's really easy to get caught up in the sounds, when it's all about the music. You don't hear too many pop songs that are built around just the sound - it's the melody too (with the Crazy Frog being the exception!)

Dan :)
