Patches

Article from Polyphony, July/August 1978


BASS GUITAR


KEYBOARD: low octave (transpose further with 4781 if needed, for proper range.
VCO 1: One octave above VCO 2.
VCF: Freq. HI; Init. Freq. MIN. Q 60%; Mode SWEEP.
AR: Expand ON; Attack 0%; Decay 40%; Variable 35%.
ADSR: Attack 10% (adj. for slight 'pluck' sound, 'thunking' attack) Decay 30%; Sustain 80% Release 45%.

When set up properly, this patch sounds quite a bit like an electric bass guitar, especially when played as accompaniment to other instruments through a good bass amp. Be first to fool that C & W bass picker down the street.

HAMMOND ORGAN WITH PERCUSSION


VCO's
2. No transposition — KBD C.V. out. Triangle.
1. One octave lower than VCO 2, P5 higher than VCO 3. Triangle.
3. Perfect 5th down from VCO 1. Pulse Width Modulation — 25 - 40%.
BIAS: Enough to accent harmonic P 5 up from fundamental — about 1 volt.
LFO: About 5 Hz. Variable output enough for 'vibrato' — about 20% P. W. change.
MIX: VCO 1-60%; VCO 2-80% ; VCO 3-60%; Output (one channel only) — 100%.
AR: Attack 0%; Release 20%; Variable 50%; EXPAND ON.
ADSR: Attack — about 5% (enough for initital 'pop' percussion sound, but not too much.) Decay — 15%; Sustain — 45% Release — 45%
VCF: Freq. — HIGH; Init. Freq. = 15% (accent VCO 1) Q — 60%; Mode — SWEEP.
REVERB: To taste.
KBD: Medium to high octave, no glide.

The main point in this patch is to accent the harmonics that are a P 5 above the fundamental (fund. = VCO 3). It takes some experimenting with parameters, mixing, etc. to get the right effect, but it's worth it. By varying filter freq., and/or oscillator pitches, you can go from Keith Emerson to Deep Purple. This one is another good one for multi-channel recording.
