More sounds from creative readers; this month LA meets FM as the Roland D50 and Yamaha CX5 are the favoured instruments.
Rudi Cazeaux, Whitstable, Kent
We think these are the best of the four useful patches Rudi sent, the first, 'Emutar', being a "steelish-guitarish sound inspired by an Emulator II demo disk". As well as being very easy on the ear, it has a convincingly guitar-like attack. The second patch, 'Orchime', is described by Rudi as "a strong orchestral sound, very powerful at the lower end". As the name suggests, it has some intriguing bell-like tones over a lush string base.
Tony Tory, Cirencester, Glos
According to Tony, this "gives a really raunchy, sizzling, powerful sound for slow or fast work", and he suggests using a hint of the D50 preset 'Resin Bow' in the lower register to enhance the bass. Although he's been using this sound for a couple of months he only sent it in to us when he "got round to reading the fine print about free subs!"
