Hi there Rob, other Ableton Live Users.

I have been using Ableton Live Suite 8 and I have tried many permutations of wave forms, frequencies, LFO's but I am unable to produce a west coast whistle (eg. squeal in songs such as those produced by Dr. Dre in "Let Me Ride") in Analog. I am aware that sound was produced by an analogue synth but if anyone could guide me on how this could be approached, I will really appreciate it.

Thanks

Nik

hi ya Nik....

i wouldnt be able to help you to an end result on creating this sound.... but i would be more inclined to use FM synthesis
using operator.... which still stumps me even now

i recall Rob creates a bell sound using operator.... and FM is amazing at creating real life instruments & sounds like piano and no doubt a whistling sound with modulation & sweeping through the high frequencies....

Hey Nik,

I had a listen to that track and it just sounds like a sine wave with portamento to me! It's certainly not something that needs a lot of processing as it's a very clean sound - sine or triangle I would say.

I'll have a stab at making the sound when I'm next in the studio...
