      Hi everyone, new member here, great site and loved the Optical vids!

      I’ve been trying to make the strings from Inner City Life, just for kicks, and because I wanted that MetalHeadz sound in my tracks.
      The processes I went through was to look up what the original was made on, a quote from Rob Playford in Sound on Sound magazine in 1998 stated they used the Emu Vintage Keys. So I went looking for a sample set from that. Closest i got was the Emu Vintage Pro sample set on the Legowelt site. It had some really close strings!

      I got these into ableton, into a sampler. I set a filter to open with a brief attack at the start and a pitch envelope to drop at the end of each note. Touch of reverb and delay to gel it together.

      Let me know what you think and how close I got:

      Amazing effort mate! Awesome sleuthing up on Rob Playford quotes, you have certainly captured that magical era of sound beautifully in your tune here. Having that string set saved as a rack is a great asset to have
      Very impressive and a breath of fresh air to hear this!

      P.s welcome to Sample Genie! Hope you enjoy it!
