Right, the chorus accounts for about half the fatness of any Alpha Juno sound. ;-)

maybe the rate and the phase of the chorus should be a bit deeper/faster still, but the timbre is near perfect :)

@tguzzardo:
Getting warm, but not hot yet.
Now also add some white noise, and then stack 6 of those on top of each other, with free-running oscillators or slightly offset starting times (like MKS-50 chord mode).
For fx: add some gain, lower lo and hi eq, raise mid eq and sweep it back and forth, feed it through some reverb & delay and you've got classic hoovercraft... :)

hmm, i don't think the phazer effect really belongs to the original hoover sound though...

and theres

I've made several on the virus who are close but always resemble the way they ended up as samples in tracks and then they are distorted again..

I really think if you want to approximate the real thing, you need to listen to mentasm's second phase, and dominator songs. The "insomniac" remix was one of the first where the samples started to be "altered" already

those were the first "hoover sound" tracks out there. There's discussion about who was first, mentasm or dominator.. I thought I knew dominator in 91 already, and it has a long pitch envelope curve and a long sustain, while the mentasm sound goes all over the place pitchwise..

Dominator couldn't have sampled from mentasm imo, because in that song there's not the same long pitch envelope,

Maybe they shared patches. I'm sure those went around back at the time ?
