Exclusive violin patch for the DX7.
On this patch, algorithm 17 is used which divides the sound into three parts. These are all 'carried' by the first operator, and thus give a thin, yet accurate representation of hard sounding solo violin. Operators three, four, five and six combine to form the initial tone and bowing effect, whilst the second operator with its feedback gives the violin's harmonic quality throughout the duration of a note.
Velocity sensitivity is assigned mainly to operators four and six for extra 'bite' on the attack when played hard, as well as overall velocity sensing for output level and accentuated 'hardness' of tone with hard playing. Perfect for Paganini, but not marvelous for Mendelssohn. (There'll be another goodie for your gadget next month.)
