The Synth Sounds of Stranger Things - Two Tutorials on Creating the Theme

Published on Aug 30, 2016

This is a bit of a double post. In the video above goes over how to create the theme to Stranger Things using hardware synths. If you click here, you'll get a write-up from Ask.Audio on how to create the track on U-he's Diva. The completed track there is impressive.

BTW, If you have Netflix and haven't seen Stranger Things yet, go watch it. If you don't have Netflix, Stranger Things just might be worth picking it up for a month. It is that good and so is the theme music. It's throwback to soundtracks of the 70s and early 80s, most notably John Carpenter.

The following is the description for the video by Reverb above.

"Netflix's 'Stranger Things' has seemingly taken over popular culture, in no small part thanks to it's moody, synthesized soundtrack by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein. In this video, Justin DeLay attempts to take us in to the Analog Upside-Down and show you how to approximate some of these fantastic sounds on analog synthesizers of the day.
