The main sequence sound owes much to the pattern of notes played. David Guetta’s sequence features either a third or fifth sitting atop a pedalling low note which plays throughout on the first, second, fifth and sixth 1/8th notes in each bar and this helps build a sense of harmony.
The sound we’ve made comes from the ES1 again, with the same combination of osc types as in the previous step. This time the cutoff frequency is opened to let through more upper frequencies, though it is still only set at 20%.
The EQ on this sound features two components – a shelf scooping out frequencies below 80Hz and a specific band drop at 265Hz which reduces a narrow band of frequencies by up to 5dB. Again we’re turning to Decapitator to provide some saturation.
