Wow that's pretty wild, I must check that out...
Bodom/Strato are the cheesy kinds I'm talking about. It just sounds too "synth" and too weak.
Listening to the recs. Also I keep my ears peaked when I listen to synthwave but it needs to cut through massive quad+ tracked guitars and I think a lot of stuff isn't up to that task, even if it sounds good by itself.
I might try stacking some random stuff and hitting it hard with distortion. Maybe add a fifth to make a power chordy thing. And maybe avoid too synthy stuff like simple saw waves. If I could take stuff that sounds more like a guitar di and stack it a bunch of times, maybe detune each part a bit, I feel like that could do it. But I'm not even sure how to do that practically. I have a rompler type hardware synth but it's mostly gotguitars and those won't be dry sounding enough I don't think.
I want it huge, angry and wild. And cutting. Like a guitar but better, idealli
i may be misunderstanding you. are you trying to create synth tones on you guitar or looking for keyboard sounds for leads on a synth?Is it possible? How would you go about it?
Most synth leads/solos I hear in guitar based music sound pretty cheesy and not really aggressive. I think it's often just a distorted saw wave or something similar but not really sure... I'd like something more aggressive but I'm not sure exactly how.
Anybody got tips?
ah! i see now said the blind man. if you were trying synth via guitar i might have some ideas, but the other way around not as much. Fishman makes a wireless hexpickup you can control a midi synthi with and that way your not locked into the Roland guitar synthesizer ecosystem.Keyboard! But if it sounds more like a guitar I wouldn't be sad.

Since it's getting thrown around, might as well just link it; this start at the part where he talks about splicing the chainsaw with his Mayones (99% sure his 9-string was a Mayo), but honestly this whole thing is worth a watch. The long and short of it is that he created the riffs, and then there's basically a database that plays them as the conditions applied to them are met, but those conditions also have different rules applied to them so it alters how the riff plays/which riff will play next/etc...
