Patchwork

MTs Programmers' Forum. Readers share their own patches for the ever-popular Ensoniq ESQ1 and Casio CZ1000.


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?

ENSONIQ ESQ1 - Steamroom


Volke Cat, Isle of Wight

The ESQ1 pops up yet again with this useful patch, which its creator modesdy describes as "a versatile sound that reminds of a steam whisde". There's more than a hint of deep, full, breathy vocals in there too, and as Volke says, "it's good for basslines, as well as sustained backing chords".

CASIO CZ1000 - Acousticon


Paul Reilly, Glasgow

Paul came up with this patch after realising that, though there was no shortage of electric guitar patches, good acoustic guitar sounds were few and far between. 'Acousticon' has a crisp attack and mellow sustain, is very realistic, especially in a mix, and as Paul points out, is an effective bass sound when played on the lower part of the keyboard.
