On my quest to recreate classic synth sounds using plugins on my computer, I have come across several challenges. It appears that a lot of 80's sounds that I always thought were synthesizers were actually just samples, making them very difficult to reproduce. I have managed to (for the most part) recreate the synth lead from "Sweet Dreams" by Eurythmics, but the process I used was painfully complex and creating a tutorial for it would be difficult and not particularly helpful.

Let's hear some of your favorite synthy songs. If the synth sounds are not incredibly complex to recreate I just might teach you how to make them.


  1. Axel F

    You Dropped a Bomb on Me

    High Roller (Crystal Method)in the beginning. I am just assuming that is a synth.

  2. Tainted Love by Soft Cell
    anything Kraftwerk

  3. I like what you did with your blog.
