Bill Wolfer Jams With The Legend HZ Synthesizer


video upload by Bill Wolfer

"Every sound in this video is coming from The Legend HZ.

I just got this thing a few days ago, and I've barely scratched the surface of what it can do. Here's a quick jam using 13 instances of The Legend HZ. I love this instrument. I was sold on a faithful Minimoog emulation with six oscillators and a Fixed Filter Bank. But wait! There's more! Ha! Sounds like a paid promotion, but I assure you that I bought mine just like anybody else.

This bass line popped out of my fingers the first time I fooled around with it, so I decided to expand it, trying to use only The Legend HZ for all the sounds and effects. It was a fun thing to do.

"A walkthrough of the LEGEND HZ from Synapse Audio. It sounds great and has some lovely presets that demo some lovely Hans Zimmer cinematic effects.. check them out at @10:43 which led me to realise the unique aspect of this is the amount of access the modulation matrix give you to all the parameters.

If this was sold as a virtual modular system there would be patch points and cables all over the place.. and an awful lot of confusion! But it somehow gets the flexibility without the complexity. Having even the effects and filter bank parameters as modulation destinations really opens things up.

You can go from super simple to suyper complex in minutes. The MSEG envelopes/LFOs are so easy to use but really drive you into sound design and experimentation."

Hans Zimmer presents THE LEGEND HZ Synthesizer

The Legend HZ Preset Demo

video upload by SynapseAudio

"Demonstration of select factory presets by Kevin Schroeder."


via Synapse Audio

"Developed in collaboration with iconic and multiple-award-winning film composer Hans Zimmer, The Legend HZ builds on the legacy of its predecessor, The Legend.

The result of this collaborative effort is an analog modeled software synth which is uniquely positioned for use in modern film scoring and music production applications. Most importantly, it retains this position while faithfully recreating the sonic characteristics of the original hardware.

The Legend HZ has been designed with great care and attention to detail, so that no opportunities were missed to create a software synth which is both highly usable and insanely versatile. It is at heart the product of the combined knowledge of a genre-defining composer and Synapse Audio’s experience emulating an industry-defining synthesizer.

Building on the success of The Legend, we’ve teamed up with Hans Zimmer to mark new ground in analog modeling synthesis. Multiple features have been added to The Legend HZ that were previously unavailable with The Legend. These include an additional three oscillators (and with them an added polyphony setting), a modulation matrix, a 32-step sequencer, an MSEG for added modulation controls, and an expanded effects section.

The Legend HZ even contains a fixed filter bank that was modeled after Hans Zimmer's personal Vintage 914 Fixed Filter Bank, an exceptional and rare piece of hardware.

Moreover, 200 factory presets developed jointly by expert sound designer Kevin Schroeder and Hans Zimmer have been added. The factory soundbank gives anyone access to a wide range of cinematic-style sounds, while The Legend HZ itself provides access to some of the very tools used by them.

The Legend HZ is available in VST®, AAX and Audio Unit formats, and supports MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE), as well as the Native Kontrol Standard (NKS).

The Legend HZ features summary
Accurate circuit simulation
6 high-quality VA oscillators
8x oversampled engine
Comprehensive effects section
Unison, Mono, 4-,8- and 12-voice Polyphony modes
Support for MPE (MIDI Polyphonic Expression)
Advanced Arpeggiator/Sequencer
Available as VST, Audio Unit and AAX

Thee Olde Tale of Moog Grandmother and thee Legend


video upload by Oblivion Corner

"Moog Grandmother analog synth and Synapse Audio The Legend VST are both played live in this loose dungeon synth jam. See how the much feted hardware analog synth plays along with a software emulation of the quintessential Minimoog.

Warm and relaxing synthesizer tones emanate from this live jam which has been edited from conciseness. Enjoy the blissful melodies accompanied by sundry picture in picture scenes from the Bayeux tapestry appearing to the right of the synthesizers.

You can see the Moog Grandmother lightly patched to expand its semi modular subtractive synth grandeur and allow for a richer palate of sounds. Meanwhile, the medieval figures echo the musical bewilderment and gently dissociative effect that synthesizer music can have on the listener.

The distinguished yet hesitant musical motifs counterpoint the genteel sonic timbre of the two synthesizer instruments.

Microbrute, Repro 5, PG8X & Legend Synth Music


Published on May 9, 2020 Synth & Sundry

"Three atmospheric and melancholic synthesizer tracks capturing sidelined scenes on the banks of the Thames. Enjoy the warm analog synth textures wash over the foliage and utilitarian architecture of the river.

Contents:
00:00 Arturia Microbrute and U-He Repro 5 VST (Prophet 5 emulator)
02:34 Arturia Microbrute
3:50 Legend VST by Synapse Audio and PG8X VST (Minimoog and Roland JX8P emulators respectively)

The Arturia Microbrute is monophonic analog synthesizer with a compelling analogue tone and focussed set of controls to dial in your sounds. There is no patch memory, so every sound needs to be programmed by hand for each track.

The U-He Repro 5 is a recreation of the Sequential Circuits Prophet 5. The first popular and (relatively) affordable polyphonic analog synth. The convincing recreation of the classic synthesizer is paired with a collection of effects to round out its sonic goodness.

You can hear the Legend VST in action in this dedicated video [posted here] This is a VST homage to the Moog Minimoog monosynth.

The PG8X is a free VST recreation which we have covered before [2nd video here] It has a convincing classic polysynth sound that is faithful to the Roland JX8P and a pleasing interface panel with all the design queues from the venerated synthesizer.
