Readers' patches for the Korg Mono/Poly and Yamaha DX7S in this month's Patchwork.
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).
TP Waters, Leamington
This is a deep and dramatic string patch which TP created to emulate the theme from Casualty. It's a dead ringer, and usable for monophonic lead lines and for upfront chordal work. Keep this one for when you need impact - it won't merge well into a musical backdrop.
Rob Norman, Edinburgh
This patch, from contributor Rob Norman, is a shimmering random freefall which "uses the arpeggiator at the high-speed setting to produce a bright, sparkling effect". There's life in the old dog yet.
