Firstly, familiarise yourself with the original, which you can legally download or listen to on Spotify or YouTube. Check out what’s going on note-wise and try working out the melody first by ear, while playing along with the record.
As a couple of pointers, the tune is in F minor and the tempo is approximately 113bpm. Take a look at the screenshot of the matrix editor to get the exact notes and timing for the melody (and the bassline in Step 2). We’re using Logic’s ES1 plug-in in ‘1 Voice’ mono synth mode to recreate the lead sound here, with a saw wave set to 16’ and no sub oscillator.
Filter cutoff is set to about three quarters full, with a small amount of resonance and drive, and a little pitch modulation using the LFO to add movement and extra analogue-ness to the sound. On the amp envelope, try a fairly fast attack, medium decay/sustain and short release.
