Superstring Sound

Has anyone been able to replicate a superstring sound with an Ultranova ? and if so how ?. I know its 7 saws detuned (JP8000) and the Ultranova can only do 3 but has anyone got anywhere near ro replicating it and am sure you know exactly the sound I mean.

UltraNova has 3 oscillators, but you can do unison mode with detune. That's pretty thick right there.

You can also play with the individual oscillator density and detune settings. Very supersaw.

For the worlds thickest saw patch, you could use the mono mode with maximum unison voicing, a big spread, and maximum density on 3 saw oscillators while using the detune amount as a modulation destination. Thing would sound like a JP8000 being attacked by a million bees.

Spot on Ted thanks got a nasty buzzy sound straight away and think if I spend some time messing with the filters etc I should get a sound quite similar
