single-cycle samples of 80s digi waveform synths

in particular i'm looking for the ppg wave wavetables; i found the waveterm library but cannot find the og ppg wavetables anywhere. also hoping to find esq-1/sq-80 waves, prophet vs, dw-8000, basically any single-cycle waveforms from the classic era of digital synthesis! if anybody has any links or ...

Re: Reverb, can anything sound this good?

you could always do your own shimmer effect by creating a simple feedback loop with a cheap pitch shifter in the path (the cheaper the better; it's all about those glitchy digital artifacts being smooshed together by a thick lustrous glorious reverb... like floating on a cloud of titties)

Re: yamaha CS-10 stuck LFO!

thanks so much for all of your advice gentleman, however i have somehow managed to inadvertently destroy the lfo circuit. somehow the trace from one of the ic lugs decided to come unstuck from the board. the annoying thing is when measuring both the new and old capacitor out of circuit they exhibite...

Re: yamaha CS-10 stuck LFO!

Also worth checking is the small tantalum capacitor between pins 3 & 4; it seems to set the base frequency of the LFO chip. hey doc, just to double check, do you mean the capacitor labelled 0.68/25 on the schematic? i can't seem to measure stable resistance on this, only occasionally a quick jump i...

Re: yamaha CS-10 stuck LFO!

for anyone else who may encounter this problem in the future and come across this thread, synthparts does indeed stock the lfo ic (IG00150), costs $50

Re: yamaha CS-10 stuck LFO!

hmmm adjusting the trimpots did nothing. however i can't get a reading off the little blue tantalum cap. i'll replace it and see what happens, other wise i guess i'll see about replacing the ic if it's not too expensive yes it is a bit of a hassle getting inside this synth, but the pcb is extremely ...

Re: yamaha CS-10 stuck LFO!

thank you so much for such a quick and succinct reply!

the pot reads smoothly, but only 0 to 8 for whatever reason

the trimpots are clean and shiny, but vr12 has a *tiny* spot of oxidisation. shall i replace it or is it possible to clean it?

once again, many thanks

yamaha CS-10 stuck LFO!

good day sirs *twirls end of moustache* has anyone ever encountered a stuck lfo on the yamaha CS series synths? i assume it is stuck because the led has gone out and anything effected by the lfo remains at a single point in its cycle, so for example if i flip between the two lfo waveforms while pres...

Re: Mixing software through an analog desk

man, the stuff on your soundcloud sounds like it's been mixed fine to me, pretty much genre correct anyway putting s**t through a desk is only worth it if it has some kind of character you want to impart onto your tracks, say from driving the pres or adding frequencies with the eq's. even if it's ju...

Re: how important is compression

Anyhow, I say stay away from compression as much as you can, the trick to compression is to not have to have it or use it as little as possible. It is something used for correcting, it is a prison facility for bad sounds. Good sounds should not have to go there, generally speaking. wow. Indeed. yes...
