Sorry for the dumb question, but I'm guessing there are some experienced people here who might be able to help me out. There's a synth or sample which I hear all the time in some types of dungeon synth - but I have no idea what it's called or how to get it!
I went through my entire GM sound banks and couldn't find anything that really matched. It's too soft to be a traditional mallet, too much decay to be a pad... it reminds me of sounds I used to hear in MODs from the late 90s, but that's not helping me identify it.
The first one sounds like a typical synth bell, xylophon or maybe even an organ to me. Quite 90's RPG indeed. Something in the ballpark could be made with qiute simply using a square wave on a synth. Go low on the frequency to get the soft sound, maybe some resonance. Short attack, and decay, release and sustain to taste. The second example sounds like a distorted piano with reverb. Would use some saw wave/pulse wave modification and more high frequencies on a synth to get a more agressive sound like that.
And then there is EQ, reverb, echo and the rest of the context.

Thanks for the reply! Gotta admit I'm trying this suggestion though and I can't get anywhere close to that first sound. It's closer with a sine wave than with a square but nowhere near. I can tell there's some vibrato in there as well but that only gets me part-way there
For what it's worth I asked the composer of the first piece and he said it would have been from a Casio CZ 5000 - that complicates matters because it's not the traditional subtractive synth method. Still, the Casio synth I have - VirtualCZ - has some great sounds, so that's something!
How does this Virtual CZ read the original patches? Preset 10 Vibraphone on this related Casio CZ sound pretty close: synthmania.com/2006/08/26/casio-cz-1000/ It is played some octaves higher on the demo though.
