    Sign in to disable this ad
    Im workin on a beat that has kind of a west coast vibe 2 it and I need a good whistle not a regular "human whistle" I mean like the sharp synth soundin whistles like in some of Dre's old ****. Does anyone know where I can get it or how 2 make it? Any info would be appreciated.

    I think Dre used a Minimoog to make those whistles.

    The secret is to use the "portamento" or "porta" feature on your synth to make it slide to the next note at a certain speed instead of just cutting straight to it.

    ONe of the VSTs included with Cubase SX has a preset called Gangsta Whine.. (I think it's hte A1).... It's the high pitched synth whistle like in old snoop tracks..

    Ahh good ol gansta rap :-) Back when rappers where poor, running form the cops, and jacking cars None of this bull sh** about rolling in escalades and having $1,000,000 but no girl.

    you mean wormy leads?

    try the high end of a bass patch, then use the note bend. adjust the bass patch to your liking, or try a synthy lead or solo string. I noticed if you use notes: g,d#, c you can replicate some dre tracks.

    Mano, are you looking for programming tips itselves, or are some Mini patch exemples good as well ? I'd have to search but I definitely have some basic Minimoog patch settings (.pdf and/or .jpg) on my hd. And a very interesting one is a bass patch sheet from Portishead (token ages ago from their site). You can't find it anymore on the homepage now (although the site hasn't been renewed for years !! ). Let me know if want some of them.
    I feel MOOG'ed today...
