Learn how to play Faithless' classic 'Insomnia' in our latest '60-Second Synth Sounds' video. In the new series, we take on dance music classics that have dominated dancefloors since their release and show you how to program them from scratch in less than a minute. While the original 'Insomnia' sound was most likely a digital Roland synth favoured by Faithless, we decided to use the DSI Prophet-6 to show you a more flexible way to create the sound! 

Having already covered 'Born Slippy', 'Can You Feel It' and 'Da Funk', this week we're taking on 'Insomnia' with its iconic riff that's instantly recognisable.
