Hi there,

wondering if anyone can point me to a good start or even preset for the intro sound playing the Gb Gb Eb Bb Ab F Db, broken Eb and Db chord at the intro.

I am trying Clav sounds and also pulse or PWM sounds as I saw mentioned on another website, but maybe there is a simpler way or even a preset that I could use?

Chaka Khan "Feel For You" features the DX7 harmonica so I am wondering if they used some DX7 presets on this track as well?

thanks all

Since submitting this I have found that some of the FM Basses and maybe FM guitars (played in the upper register) seem to do this sound quite well - at least in my room through the HS5 speakers. Also has the advantage that you can use the same patch for the bass itself. (Sometimes at the rehearsal studio, through the PA, the sounds sound a bit different?)

But if you know of a real authentic solution for this I would be glad to hear.
