What is making that sound??

Postby amelia » Fri Dec 11, 2009 3:38 am

Heh! :D Do any of you cool people know what sound it is, or what instrument is making the sound I want to duplicate :?:

It is Hot Chocolate's 'Sexy thing' song, and the sound is pretty much through out.

It is the sound after" I Believe In Miracles ,
sound?????????????????????????????????????
Where You From You Sexy Thing, Sexy Thing.

Is it a drum? An electronic drum? A synthesizer? How could I best duplicate it?

Thank you.

it's an electronic tom going through a flanger/filter.

enjoy.

It sounds a little like a little gibbon.

Thank you :) So if I understand this correctly, it is an electric drum that is being further distorted by this filter/flanger thing.

But...

The sound is not repetitively even enough, to be being machined. And, the pitch changes too, getting higher and different in shape, so what is it exactly that the filter/distortion doing-what is it's role? Is it still a human being that is striking the 'drum' ? It sounds like it...but how is the sound changing at the strike... :?:
