Hello all - since getting my Behringer 2600 I wanted to try to recreate the Oxygene 4 lead following the instructions given by Geiss during an interview...so here you are - I think pretty accurate! They're MP3 samples, ready to drag in to your sampler.

Can you give us more details about what Geiss said about this sound ?

He actually said very little other than to confirm that the lead originated on the ARP2600, all oscillators were square and there was a bit of ADSR on the filter to shape the sound. OSC3 takes the pulse wave into the filter, bypassing the normalled saw.

I think it sounds pretty spot on. There shouldn't be any detune as all oscillators were tuned in unison.

Always preferred the PLD version of the lead ;)

Thanks for the samples! I do prefer this to the "Oxygene IV" lead in Arturia's SEM V (for example), that's more fitting for Oxygene 8 IMO

I just got a Behringer 2600 myself yesterday and was trying to recreate this sound - you got way closer than I did!

Is there any chance you could post a photo of the settings on your 2600 for this sound?

Yes too much detune and too little sustain. Change them and you should be much closer to the album original. :D
Without faith nothing is possible. With it, nothing is impossible.

Hi the community,

Well i'm working around this famous lead with the 2600V and have to confess as simple as it may seem, this lead is a little tricky.
I read and heard that this lead has been patched by M. Geiss on a ARP2600 with 4012 Moog filter. Well!
Two way are described in lot of forums. One way says the patch has been done with a simple saw OSC (with ENV settings...) and the second way with 3 PW (1 main & 2 light detuned) and then using Filter Req & Resonance to get this texture...

I heard a lot of very nice covers but no one who gets this famous lead closer as original one.

So what's your opinion? Does any one a suggestion for these settings? I'm ready to share my ARP2600V setting.

Thanks for your answers!

It's not a very complicated sound to recreate, but it's hard to judge and compare without the rest of the instruments and effects playing, since sounds tend to sound very different when played dry.

This guy got it pretty close, it's almost identical to the original (skip to 19:00):

And so are the rest of the sounds in this whole album he recreated.

He did Equinoxe also:

He recreated every nuance, blip and bloop. Mad skills right there.

Hi,
Thanks for these links! What an amazing work around both covers! Amazing closer from original one.
Curious to know witch instrument Rodolfo used specially to replace RMI Synths. We note the Eminent of course and the famous flanged lead on O4! And so closer bass sequence on O5.

Nice covers.

That's my first attemp on ARP2600V for the o4 Lead: https://we.tl/t-uqGpTj1ME1

Opinions are welcome!
