Blade Runner Blues Lead Demo

"The Blade Runner Blues lead / harmonica patch is one of the most expressive patches Vangelis ever did on the CS-80. Among other things it features sensitive and fine-tuned velocity and aftertouch response, with quite different settings for each of the two synth lines. Since it is not directly derived from the CS-80's preset buttons (many of his other go-to patches were), and especially because it has so many expressive nuances, it is not a straightforward patch to recreate.

After many hours of micro-tweaking every possible parameter on the CS-80V3 and much A/B comparison, this is the closest I have gotten. The pad background was created with the Roland VP-03 strings to emulate Vangelis' gorgeous VP330, and some Rhodes flourishes were added.

If you own the Arturia CS-80V3 (upgrade to latest version), please feel free to download this preset here:…EVXhjeTNsMnFIR0U
