: Hi everyone, I'm looking for a QS6 patch or suggestion on how the replicate the synth sound for
: 'Why Can't This Be Love' on 5150 by Van Halen.

I beleive that was done with a Roland Guitar Synth... Your best bet is to start with a distorted electric guitar sound, use a flange effect to get the filter sweep type sound. another key will be to get the envelopes to trigger right - if you listen closely, you'll notice that the attack doesn't trigger on every should probably be able to get pretty close.

: There seems to be some kind of weird portamento/filter thing going on that I can't figure out...

: Thanks.
