Patchwork

The delicate chimes of a Korg EX800 join Roland D50 and JX3P basses in MT's regular selection of readers' own synth patches. Why not submit one of yours?


If you're still waiting to see your particular synth featured in these pages, then why not be the first to submit some sounds?

Don't forget that if your patch gets published, you'll receive a free year's subscription to MUSIC TECHNOLOGY with our compliments. So send us your favourite sounds on a photocopy of an owner's manual chart (coupled with a blank one for artwork purposes) accompanied by a short demo-tape (don't worry too much about classic performances and impeccable recording quality; just present your sounds simply and concisely - and convince us you're the best of the bunch). Include a decent-length description of your sound and its musical purpose in life, and write your full name and address on each chart. And remember, edited presets are all very well, but an original masterpiece is always preferable. OK?

The address to send sounds to: Patchwork, (Contact Details).



KORG EX800 - Britvic 55

ROUND D50 - Bass & Hammers


Paulo Andre C Mosmann, Rio De Janeiro

'Bass & Hammers' combines four different PCM samples in two Tones to create an intriguing bass and percussion sound. Breath and Noise samples make up the bass part while Pick and Chink provide the percussive metal edge. Paulo recommends playing the sound in the lower register for a new type of bass sound - especially if you're a fan of Depeche Mode.

ROLAND JX3P - DX Bass


Paul Wells, Frimley


Yet another attempt to recreate a DX bass sound on an analogue synthesiser - and eminently useable it is too. Paul suggests changing parameter B7 from A to B, allowing the envelope to be changed to make a totally different envelope shape.
