Yamaha Dx100 & Zoom 1201 Synth Pads - Ambient Jam on Four Track

Published on Apr 6, 2020 ChrisLody

"I've had this Dx100 sat around the studio for a few weeks now as a friend brought it over just before the virus hit asking me to find him a power supply. I've not used it up until now as I didn't have time to read through the manual, well now I do!

This is a custom string synth patch that has a LOT of Zoom Studio 1201 Hall 1 reverb on it! Like, a lot. The trick is to get the sound a source 'moving around' a lot before it hits the reverb so I've added LFO to pitch with the LFO set really slow and then detuned the Operators away from each other too to get a much wonk into the patch as is possible on the Dx100. The Sanyo Talkbook is playing a field recording of passing traffic outside a house I used to live in, the recording is 15 years old or more. I was going to layer this up more but I decided two tracks is enough on this, simplicity is best sometimes. Recorded to four track for extra lofi vibes."
