TOP 10 Iconic Synth Sounds (that ruled the world)

video upload by Espen Kraft

"In this video I present a list of my top 10 iconic synth sounds. Sounds that ruled the world in terms of chart hits. Sounds are coming from synths as Yamaha DX7, Roland Jupiter-8 and Juno-106, some sampler sounds from the Fairlight and Emulator 2 and Korg M1, D-50 and many more.

In the case of the 'synth brass', lots of other analog synths were used for different songs and hits, like the Oberheim OB-Xa, Elka Synthex, Prophet 5 and more. The same for the 'sync' sound.

External reverb, delay and chorus were used on some of the sounds. All sounds has been mixed and processed in various way to sound good. All the sounds are coming from the gear you see in the video. No softs or VST synths were used.
Two added bonus famous sounds in the video, one in the very beginning and one at the end. First is a variation of the infamous "Orch5" sample from the Fairlight, while the other is from the D-50.
