Re: Looking at Proteus /1 and /2

You have Garageband so that can load EXS24 samples right? You can buy all of the Proteus range in one pack from the official licensed source: https://www.digitalsoundfactory.com/product/e-mu-proteus-pack/ Much easier to work with. The original machine was great back in the day but it's very clunky ...

Looking at Proteus /1 and /2

I love the sound based on demos. I’m planning to get these from EBay bundled together. I create mostly late 80’s early 90’s styles tracks when I’m doing originals. They even have the factory presets!

Re: Radiohead Climbing up the walls synth bass patch

It sounds like it has a slow filter envelope and some kind of unique monophonic mode. Guessing it’s a Minimoog or Alesis Ion that’s being used. The envelope is retriggering because of the specific way the sound was programmed. It sounds like the Minilogue monophonic mode without using portamento.

Re: Synths used by Wire (English post-punk group)?

I'm a synth noob working with an ensemble on songs from the English post-punk group Wire. There are some subtle synth effects I'm trying to replicate. Songs in particular include "The 15th" and "Map Ref" (both released in 1979; I think they tried to get Eno to do the synths, but their producer did ...

Re: Help Identyying synth used on childrens album

It sounds like Korg M1, DX7II, Proteus something, and JV-1080 and similar stuff. Basic ROMpler, AI, and FM sounds. You can get Dexed, which is an emulation of the DX7. Korg X5 and NS5R have these sounds a plenty. Some of the orchestral stuff could be from a Roland XP or similar. Most is ROMplers lik...

Re: A VSE Newcomer

Nice job!
I’ve been thinking about getting one of the older Casio or Yamaha PSR/PSS home keyboards and doing similar. Mine would be more Casio pop music than casiocore though, though I like both equally. You should check out PSS-270’s channel. He is excellent at the same genre.
