Patches that don't die!!!

Recommended Posts

hi do anyone else have patches that they use over and over even ten years/twenty years later? Not counting piano, clavinet and rhodes/wurlitzer which will never die :-)

My two are on my Korg T2.... Piano Pad and Tchu Wave.... I still loves these patches as much as when I got the keyboard almost 20 years ago, and those patches play a part in almost 30% of my production even in minor parts up to this day.

anyone else have their own favourites?

Yep, you've already eliminated me from the pool. ;)

 

However, my favorite non-M&P/B&B sound is a Sine Wave Pad. Adds weight and sits real nice in the mix. :cool:

I liked patch #88 on a DW-8000 that I had borrowed from our band's bass player for a while. This gave a really nice jet engine sound, which was the perfect lead-in for the start of the Beatles song "Back in the USSR". I am not sure if this was a standard sound on the DW-8000, or if my friend (the bass player) had programmed it. I had to return the DW-8000, and I have not found a way to replace this sound with my current MIDI controller and Roland XV-5050 expanded with SRX-07. If anyone knows of a good way to get a good jet engine sound into my XV-5050, I'd love to hear it!

Harmonizer , I still have my DW 8000 ( since 1987 my first keyboard ) 88 jet sound was on mine from the start. I used 87 for the start of Fox On The Run for years . My DW has not been used live for over ten years and I often miss some of its great analogue patches . It came with a cassette of factory program settings that you can load with the help of a cassette recorder . I still have this tape and the keyboard is for sale !!

Eeeh, when I were a lad....

Went down to the British music fair at Olympia back in 1987 (I think it was that year, I've slept since then). The year that the Simmons 9 kit was launched. Right opposite the Simmons stall was Korg. I asked the demonstrator from Korg what the new synth was.

 

"Our new synth, DW8000. Have a play" and then he sauntered off.

 

Before synths had 1000s of sounds I'd listen to every sound on the board (Yes, the jet sound was there).

 

After 10 minutes or so the guy came over and asked me what I thought.

 

"Love it. I notice the #61 patch (Analogue Brass) is almost like the sound used on 'Jump', but not quite". Please remember folks, the song had only recently come out & hadn't been played to death in every music store.

 

"Well, change it then". He quipped. You didn't need a degree to modify the parameters and I soon had my version programmed in. (Organ envelope on the DCA with added blip on the front, filter tweaked, delay time modded).

 

A week later the Keyboard mag of the time mentioned the DW8000 'launch', & that it had been taken back to Japan for a new keyboard & new sounds.

 

Six months later when I finally had enough money to buy one, the little blue program card that came with it listed program #61 as.....

 

 

Jump! :cry:

 

 

And the moral of this story is, (altogether, now).....

I bought a DW8000 brand new. Gigged with it for 20 years. Yes patch 88 was there with the jet sound....I too used it for back in the USSR.

 

I had a patch 22 that I used for Jump, also back when this song wsn't played to death.

 

 

Alas, I have finally retired the board and replaced it with a Triton Ex with MOSS.

Er... could you possibly translate that into something that anyone south of... Knutsford can understand? ;)

One of my favorites was the Sax Section, combi 77 on the Korg M1. Set the tuning to Equal Tempered 2, where it would be a bit out of tune, and it was a very acceptable substitute. So much so that I recreated it on my N364, or at least came close. I even put it at position 77.

 

I just got the Korg Digital Legacy collection. I can see better how the sax section was created so I can tweak my Sax section a bit more on the N364. I also forgot just how good the clav was on the M1.

Any more, when I'm doing music - which has taken a big back seat to writing and arranging music backed roleplays, I do synth sounds on the fly.

 

I have run into a cool situation where the landlord bought a PowerMac and ProTools LE 7, and my brother imported a Japanese lady friend who plays keyboards, so perhaps music will be flying more in the near future. I intend to get the Arturia Moog Modular V sometime soon and add the patchwork monster to the arsenal, once again programmed on the spot.

 

When I do something traditional, it's a sweetly chorused synth pad or something like the Jens Lead, but I try to add some element to it so that it doesn't sound like a preset used a million times. With a sawtooth lead, that rarely works. ;)

This keyboard solo has obviously been tampered with!
