Patchwork

If you are a devotee of Yamaha's DX27, Roland's D50 or Casio's CZ1, there are patches for your synth in this month's Patchwork pages - if another synth is your passion why not make it a feature next month?


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).



YAMAHA DX27 - Pan Pipe


Justin Goodall, Eastleigh


Strangely enough, this DX27 patch is reminiscent of a strongly-blown pan pipe. It's very full sounding, with a convincing woody texture and an attack which benefits from a noisy, breathy quality. Justin recommends increasing the value of the D2R parameter on OP1 to shorten the release time.

ROLAND D50 - ElAccoustico


Frank Thomson, Stockholm.

Exiled American Frank Thomson has submitted an extremely authentic Spanish guitar patch for the ever-popular D50. The patch employs two tones in Dual mode, though each could equally as well be used alone. The sound is quite velocity-expressive, and hitting the keys hard will produce a "string-snapping" effect giving a miked acoustic guitar sound.

CASIO CZ1 - Bottle Bass


Colin Muir, Bournemouth.

'Bottle Bass' is an upfront metallic bass patch reminiscent of the DX7-style slap bass. Several good variations can be made by increasing detune (Colin recommends a further seven semitones), switching DCO wave two off, and/or increasing DCW and DCA velocity parameters.
