Song remake with Korg VSTs and Sound Canvas VA

https://soundcloud.com/pigeon-city/trio-kwek-kwek-belajar-itu-perlu-instrumental-remake Finally found the source of that elusive synth I’ve been looking for, it was nothing more than a few tweaks on the SC-55 tenor sax in Sound Canvas VA by adding full resonance, a bit of cutoff, and a bit of attack...

Re: What was the synth on Buddy Holly's “love is strange” ?

Doesn’t sound like a synth, sounds more like a Farfisa organ through chorus.

Re: The great thread of electronic/synthesizer soundtracks

That brass reminds me of something like an analog brass sound or even FM with a volume pedal. Stuff like Jupiter’s, Juno-106, Oberheims, Prophets, and DX7 were used. The first one has what sounds like a Roland brass lead sound. Perhaps a Juno-106? Second one sounds like either a Fairlight or Emulato...

If you’re still here I’d recommend the Alesis SR-16 drum machine, or a Behringer Crave.
Or a Yamaha DX11 or DX27. Two underrated FM synths.

What is this module or drum machine?

It’s from a picture of composer Raphaël Pesqua from the 90’s.

Re: Lets talk about post punk!

Would Talking Head’s early albums be considered post punk? If so, I think their keyboard player used a Yamaha YC-45D and a Prophet-5 as well as maybe another synth of some sort. I don’t know what Synth they used on their first 2 albums but I know he was a fan of the Prophet-5 and Yamaha organ.

Re: What other 37-key synthesizers have built-in speakers?

Reface DX and Reface CS as well as the other Reface models. But for non 37-key models: Also, the Casio VL-1 (ADSR mode) and SK-series, of which the SK-1 had a built in additive synth (I have one, it’s a sampler). Casio made the HT and HZ series in the 80’s which were synths with built in speakers, b...

Re: Can you help me ID this synth?

Definitely a sampler. Maybe an Emax or Emulator. I have an Emax II Kontakt library and it’s one of the presets in it.

Re: Would Behringer Poly D make a MicroMoog redundant?

Yes, Model D was the king of funk and electro basses and leads along with the Prophet-5 for poly parts. It also has more oscillators.

I like Synth1, Dexed, PG8X, OBXD, SQ8L, Kontakt, Massive, Sound Canvas VA, and Korg Legacy Collection. The last 4 are paid.

Re: The great thread of electronic/synthesizer soundtracks

I have Kontakt now so I got a free Emax II sample kit with all the factory samples. Sounds like Emulator or Emax I’d guess. It has those marcato strings.

Re: My (and Your) Favorite Minimoog Solos

Correct me if I’m wrong but these songs have some nice Minimoog solos, am I right? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ApGLQdebe3E https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5OvI-fbBui0 Minimoog (the cheesy 70’s portamento synths are Minimoog, right?
