Underoath Synth-NEED HELP

Hey ya'll,

So I'm doing a studio cover of Underoath's awesome song "It's Dangerous Business...." and all is well, except for the damn synth in the song. I have no clue how I can replicate that with Nexus. I have the notes, but I can't find the right tone, and I'm not really synth savvy just yet, still learning that part of production. Most bands I get are just straight up metalcore.

So any clue how I can get the synth close enough to the synth at 0:19 in the song? And also the synth/ambient part at 0:47. Sounds like a guitar, and some weird efects going on.

Any help is much appreciated!

Heres the song for a quick reference:

synth arp with envelope filter sent to an LFO while changing the speed of the LFO and changing the frequency cutoff and resonance on the filter.


***this can all be automated



edit: here is a really quick example... it took approx 3 min to make this.

Synth arp is one of the Nexus presets? And thanks for the quick help Tim!

no, that is not the name of a preset.

synth: informal word for a synthesizer

arp: informal word for arpeggio

put them together using a standard square wav osc on any subtractive/additive synthesizer, you get - "synth arp"

you might find a preset in some synth that resembles the one in question however i am certain that the purpose of that particular synth patch, was to be unique and creative... hence the random properties of the LFO.

like i said though, it doesn't take very long to create one from scratch.


best of luck to you.

Thanks, and like I said, not too synth savvy, but I do know what synth is short for. I just don't know the whole patch thing and getting the right/or close enough tone, and of course the synth is very unique, but I want the cover to be as close as possible.

why not cover the song in your own way?


personally, i think it's boring when people try to model cover songs to the "T".


never heard a cover song i liked that was the same as the original.

I will most likely, mostly out of frustration, do my own synth.
