I started the Tweekay 14 lead recreation but got a little distracted...
Here's an attempt at the Frozen (Disney tool) lead.

Tweeka_1:
Baemz:Anyone know how Da Tweekaz might have done their #Tweekay14 lead or perhaps the new Hewwego lead? From what I can hear there is some layers, some with saws and some with squares and they use the portamento and stuff aswell, but idk, any ideas?

My line of thinking:
There's a square layer, with some attack so you don't get much of the pluck. A little bit of portamento and really fast LFO modulation (with a bit of fade-in on the LFO)

There's a supersaw/hypersaw layer. Big thick lead with aggressive portamento on it to give it the bite, LFO pitch modulation as well.

Process it all with some saturation and EQing to taste, and this is what you get. I used my Virus for the square and I have a Spire patch I made a little while ago for the hypersaws. I'm just not sure if Tweeka_1 used a single layer (which sounds totally possible given how cohesive their lead sounds) or multiple layers that fit together absolutely perfectly. Maybe he can elaborate just a bit? :)

Alright I will elaborate a tiny bit.

The main "glide-lead" is built up by 3 layers.
1 Spire
1 Massive
1 Sylenth

They all do their own part, but the lead that's in focus is a Spire.

The whole lead is wrapped gently in 2-3 layers of a saw-chord lead.

Now you got the ingredients, but not the recipe. =)
If you guys continue to speculate a bit, I will eventually give you bits and pieces of the recipe.

^ Interesting. I tried a Spire saw layer with a virus square and ended up with this:

I'll give it another shot tomorrow after I wake up from New Years festivities.

Thanks for the ingredients list :)

Here's another attempt from today.
Spire lead (soloed, unprocessed):
https://soundcloud.com/chatty-jay/tweekay14-spire-lead

Spire recipe:
1x Saw osc, a little bit of detune, high density, not very wide, 1 voice unison
1x Saw osc, 1/3 detune, high density, 2/3 wide, 4 voice unison
1x Saw osc, 1/3 detune, 1/4 density, 1/3 wide, 2 voice unison, low volume

Use 1/3 glide, and LFO pitch modulation that fades in. The rest is to taste (SHP/Reverb/EQ, ASDR envelope)


1x Spire, 1x Sylenth, 1x Massive lead, offbeat pianos in background. All unprocessed:
https://soundcloud.com/chatty-jay/tweek ... processing

The spire and Sylenth followed the melody, massive saws making basic chords in the background to fill out the sound. The same chords were used with the pianos for the offbeat feel.

All sounds, with processing and a sampled kick:
https://soundcloud.com/chatty-jay/tweekay14-jan-3rd

For the processing, I used an EQ and saturation on each of the channels, and then grouped them all and put on a multiband compressor, EQ, distortion, EQ, saturator, EQ then sidechain compression.

Does anybody have any suggestions or see any obvious mistakes that I'm making?

Not bad at all.

It seems to me that you lack a little depth in your lead, and that you're trying to boost it up a little too much with either a maximizer or a compressor.

There is no reason to use a distortion on the lead (I used the distortion inside spire)

And make a little more room for the reverb =)

@chadissilent Thats a good try like mr tweeka said don't over compress it.
Here are some leads I tried to recreate. There is also lead from Frozen which came out pretty good I think.

I love your Frozen and Down Down lead remakes, I thought they were pretty spot on. Most of your others were really close too, but those two were definitely my favourites.
