Sweep­ing synth FX

The sweep­ing, pan­ning synth ef­fect at the start of Rude­boy is one of its most ear-catch­ing el­e­ments. “It’s a kind of clas­sic reg­gae-style thing,” says Dom, “but I ac­tu­ally played it – it’s one note be­ing played – and used the Dave Smith fil­ter on the SP-16 to give it that drive and that sweep, which re­ally worked. It was a nice idea to get some­thing prop­erly ana­logue in there: a lit­tle bit psy­chotic-sound­ing!

“Then there’s the horn stab. Again, it’s much more of a hip-hop or trap thing than a reg­gae thing, but in the mix, it just adds a nice front and at­tack to sec­tions of the song.”
