Yamaha AN1X Sounds - Part 1

Published on Oct 14, 2017 ProckGnosis

"Skip to 03:20 to jump the preamble synth and beer babble. Just a rather LENGTHY listen to a very decent sounding and very capable virtual analog (VA) synth from Yamaha released in 1997. And yes, these are almost all presets I demo, and the opening music was recorded with just the AN1X and some drums.

You have to ask, if Yamaha made a VA this good 20 years ago, what's up with not being able to at least match its capability in all the stuff they have put out since? There was obviously a way, but maybe not the will.

Not counting the AN200 (which was sort of AN1X with half the voices), the CS ReFace is the only virtual analog synth Yamaha has put out in all that time since (unless I'm forgetting some other synth).

--AN1X Specs--
Polyphony - 10 notes
Oscillators - 2 osc: saw, variable width pulse, FM
Effects - Reverb, delay, 3-band EQ, chorus, flanger, phaser, enhancer, compressor, distortion, overdrive, amp simulator.
Filter - Resonant 12/18/24dB/oct low/band/hi pass filter + 1 more hi pass
Arpeg/Seq - Arpeg: 1 mon/poly, up, down, up/down, random; MIDI-capable. Seq: 16 steps, 1 track
Keyboard - 61 keys (with velocity and aftertouch)
Memory - 128 patches
Control - MIDI (2 parts)
Date Produced - 1997"

Crunchy Accidents (modular synth patch)

Published on Oct 14, 2017 Urs Heckmann

"Another self-playing patch, with a bit of live mixing, tweaking and patching. This time it's on the noisy side of the spectrum. It starts with accidental audio of putting the coffee mug on the table, pulling the clock cable for the sequencer to slowly, later on running the delay so hot it clips badly and all of that. First take, had to be it.

Some dark grungy, glitchy, twangy noise, atmospheres and drones, paired with some nice and thick synth sequences. This modular system is slightly modified over last vid (Clouds out, Polaris and Doepfer 138d CFX in), with Vermona Retroverb added for extra earth-shattering spring crashes.

Unfortunately I forgot to check the audio settings of the recorder. So it's maybe just 12 bits or so. Fits the vibe though.

Patch notes are a bit beyond comprehension on this one, even for myself. As so often, Batumi acts as clock source and clock divider. It also does a lot of the modulation, specifically on Rings and Maths. Maths controls Rings and Polivoks VCF Cutoff, with heavily bouncing cycles.

Oscillators (Dixie 2+ and MiniMod) are controlled by the two Tiranas going through uScale. One Tirana is occasionally transposed by some Batumi trapezoidal output.

Dixie 2+ does the bright, unfiltered PWM bass sound which also goes through the Retroverb. Its SubOsc output goes into Rings (which here does most of the Mayhem)

MiniMod goes into Polivoks VCF and plays the high arpeggios, which occasionally burst out in very fast trills and glicthy FilterFM from Maths.

Noise from Kinks and Snare from Peaks form the noise bits, with a lot of sweeping through Polaris and Kamieniec.

Black Hole DSP drenches everything in reverb and DLD does the echo, with occasional cross-patched feedback going into digital overload.

Vermona tiles and PanMix do the mixing, but I also used both Polivoks inputs and Optomix to max things out.

Lastly, uVCA control depth of PWM and Vibrato (sourced from Batumi) in the Dixie 2+ PWM voice.

That's roughly what it is."

Yamaha CS-80 Blade Runner 2050

Published on Oct 14, 2017 MrFirechild

"This track is using sounds only from the Yamaha CS-80, an iconic analog synthesizer from the late 70s. Vangelis used it a lot for the soundtrack to the original Blade Runner movie and it appears Hans Zimmer used it as well for the 2049. This track is produced and composed by using the Yamaha CS-80 as the only soundsource. Additional effects include the AVID Revibe Reverb, Oakley SE-330 Ensemble Chorus and Oakley Human Voice which give a choir like sound when feeding it with pure sawtooth waves. This piece of music is an original composition but of course inspired by the mood and vibe of the original Blade Runner soundtrack. Listen in big speakers for the best sound experience. Visuals created using Plane9. ("

"Korg KPR-77 Analogue Drum Machine, Fully working with manual. Like the TR-606 but with claps and individual outputs. Great Drum Machine I like it alot for that Depeche Mode - Speak and Spell era drum sound and fits great also with an Acid DIN sync setup. There are some scratches on the left hand side top around the buttons and a scratch on the lcd left also. Otherwise its all in very good and very clean condition throughout. The manual has some stains and a rip. Comes with an un original power supply."

"CLEAN vs. SATURATION -- CLAVIA NORD MODULAR G2 recorded clean in Cubase and then recorded the tracks processed by ELEKTRON ANALOG HEAT. Final mix also in Cubase without any add FX just the summing.

The task here was not the vast field of sound scaping with Analog Heat but more to add some analog feel to the purely digital G2-voices. So: There is no character change in the recordings.

First you here the unprocessed track by track recording and then the tune where each track was individually processed to taste by using differend filters and characters in Heat."
