Short of inspiration? MT's regular selection of readers' synth patches may be just the cure for your programmers' blues.
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).
Antonio Silva Reis, Portugal
An excellent gritty organ patch, with overtones of vintage Hammond C3. Use it for those Procol Harum impressions (if anyone out there still does 'em...)
Andy Morton, Birmingham
Andy's submitted a beautiful classical guitar patch here, which he plays in exactly the right manner on his tape. Although it's very convincing overall, we think the upper registers are especially authentic.
