Yamaha DX7 Patch Recreations by Valmont


Synclavier Church Bell recreated on Yamaha DX7 video upload by Valmont

"Check the Synclavier voices patch from Genesis 'Mama' recreated on DX7 as well here: [below]

The Synclavier being linear FM, one of the only suitable algorithm on a DX is the one with 3 parallel carrier/modulator. So in this patch, we have 3 partials but the original patch had 4. This is no big deal, as we can just detune more the DX operators. However, the Synclavier had a 1st harmonic on carrier 1 at 20% level, which is something we can't achieve on DXs because they aren't additive... Just use some feedback, to be honest it's absolutely unnoticeable ;p

The Synclavier vinyl: https://www.discogs.com/fr/release/67...

Based on 'init' patch:
Algorithm: 5
Output level: 99, 84, 99, 84, 99, 84
Coarse: 1, 1.43, 1.01, 1.44, 1.02, 1.45
Detune: 0, 0, -2, -2, -2, -2
Rate 1: 90, 75, 90, 75, 90, 75
Rate 2: 17, 0, 17, 0, 17, 0
Rate 3: 99, 20, 99, 20, 99, 20
Rate 4: 25, 20, 25, 20, 25, 20
Rate Scaling: 2
Feedback: 4
Transposition: C2"

Synclavier "Voices 1" from Genesis 'Mama' recreated on Yamaha DX7 [Supermax]

video upload by Valmont

"This one was more simple than the previous Synclavier patch. The subtlety is that the two triple-harmonic operators are doubled by the Synclavier chorus function, and that both use asynchronous LFOs. So you get a 2x6 linear operators sound, with two moving parts in the whole thing. We can't do this in a DX7, however we have the Supermax delay function which allows something in the very same spirit. Not having a Supermax results in a strictly halved-stack, which is noticeable but okay if you add thick chorus behind.

The two Synclavier operators both contain harmonic 1, 2 and 3. They're detuned from each other, so until here the DX7 can follow. Then with the trigger-delayer, we ask the DX to play each note a second time very shortly after, with an augmented pitch. We get twice the sound, twice fatter. But we still only have one LFO for the voices, delayed or not, so the sound is phasing out a bit less. Just add a lil chorus on the output and there it goes. Tho we can remark that the patch used on 'Mama' by Genesis has less LFO modulation, it's smoother. But I wanted to recreate the real Synclavier sound x)

Also note that Depeche Mode used this patch on 'Love in Itself', just like the ChurchBell sound I recreated a month ago. [above]

Based on 'init' patch:

Algorithm: 32
Output level: 96, 84, 80, 96, 84, 80
Coarse: 1, 2, 3, 1, 2.02, 3
Detune: -4, +4, -4, +5, +5, +7
Rates for all operators: 50/99/99/40
Levels for all operators: 99/99/99/0
LFO wave: sine
LFO speed: 36
LFO delay: 16
LFO PM: 28

Yamaha CS-20M like you've never heard before


video upload by Valmont

"Was tryna mod my CS-20M to get the CS-80 VCF configuration... Doesn't work yet, but has some interesting changes! CS filters have a frequency-dependent Q factor, coupled with a fixed LP filter. The CS-20M bridles the cutoff to max 7.5Khz, if you want to push it further you may lose some of the Q effect. Here I lowered the bandpass feedback R/C pair (R from 820K to 100K), this pushed the Fc but damped the resonance.
I am not quite sure how to change the max filter cutoff without affecting the feedback damping... Maybe some day I'll figure out x)

Tho I was lucky to record a test with a tempo click, so I could add those percussions afterwards! Apart from that this is 100% the CS-20M with no sync, almost no FX. Just everything at max values.

"Love Like Blood" sound on Akai AX-80


video upload by Valmont

"Waking up from a 9 minutes nap the other day I thought, out of nowhere, that the AX-80 had this OB-X resonance character... Immediately wondering about the hollow synth patch from Killing Joke, "Love Like Blood". So I went to recreate it, and well it sounds pretty close - especially when you know how far an OB-X and the AX-80 are from each other. The OB-X has discrete VCF, somewhere based on the SEM module, when the AX-80 has the CEM-3372 chip, which came later in the Oberheim Matrix-12 / Xpander. So that's some funny coincidence these sound in a similar way!

0:25 Creating the AX-80 patch
1:37 Effects
2:43 Sound check

Detailed AX-80 patch:
- OSC 1: Range 4' / Saw / Sub On / Out 99
- OSC 2: Range 16' / Detune 40 / Saw+Square / Cross Position 1 / Out 99
- VCF: Cutoff 55 / Resonance 63 / EG 50 / Key Follow 39 / High Pass 35
- EG: VCA=VCF mode / Attack 34 / Decay 46 / Sustain 70 / Release 23
- LFO OSC 1: Depth 10, Speed 21, Wave 4 (Triangle)

Detailed FX:
- SoundToys Decapitator
Brings some crunch material on the high part of the spectrum.
A gentle drive at 5%, in mode A, High Pass at mid range, tone at about 2pm. The whole thing 100% wet.
- Arturia Flanger BL-20
The closest plugin I had for that super slow phasing effect. I feel like the original sound had an additional chorus, before the flanger. Anyway, not too much doppler effect (Mix at 25%), rate at mid range, depth at 2pm. Add some High Pass on the wet signal at about 40%.
- Brainworx ACME Opticom XLA-3:
An opto comp that adds a bunch of super cool sounding harmonics. The input stage is always driving, so more than an opto comp I use it to give some super analog feeling. Basically slow response, overdriving the input (Input at 4) and well that's all x)
- Brainworx SSL4000-E
My favorite console sound :D Add some THD (-57dB on my slot), -6dB at 450Hz (LS), -2dB at 600Hz (HMF) and +5dB at 5.5KHz (HS). I really love the airy sound of this channel, it brings so much harmonic content created by the previous stuff!
- GoodHertz Megaverb 3
Depending of the mix version for the song, the amount of reverb is different. So I chose a nice long discrete verb for listening pleasure x) Basically reverb tone C, 4s decay, frequency range from 225Hz to 6KHz, at 9% wet.
- IK TR5 EQual
Remove some bits of the spectrum to get it less heavy: attenuation on the first harmonics (700Hz) and top-end content to avoid too much distortion sound in the balance. One more High Pass at 200Hz... And that's all!

Prophet 600 twins: Prophet 1200


video upload by Valmont

"I've been wondering about that one, I thought this would make a P10-esque stack, but happens that not really! The problem I had capturing this video is that P600s are phasing out, non stop. It drifts so much that it is impossible to merge them in a coherent mono signal! (Yo, 24 unstable analog VCOs at the same time??) So it's nice on headphones, sweet on largespeakers, but hell on mono devices. Also having twice the same instrument that has this very strong signature makes it not really simple to stack. It is more meaningful to have 2 different ones, like I did here: [previously posted here]

Anyway, it had to be done, and I'm happy to know I don't need a second Prophet 600 x))

Oh and about the question, 'Do two Prophet 600 sound different?', the answer is a bit yes! To my ears, one was brighter and thinner. The other one's VCOs were harder to tune, and it was darker in the way that it didn't bring as much overdrive as the other P600. The thing is that you can't trim the VCA load, so no way to adjust this. Also I have the voicepanning board installed, that I bypassed for this video (All trims to left side), but it may change the sound. I guess all of this is mostly due to different aging of CEMs? Like my friend's one slept for years, and mine is being daily used and taken on stage idk but I prefer mine x) Funny thing tho, they didn't have the same build quality, pots were feeling a slight bit different, and inside there was differences for capacitors used (none had ever been recapped tho), for connectors and power supply too. Early models look less reliable, late ones are safer.
