Smile *** Classic 60s-90s Synth Sounds ***

Hi Everyone,

This is a subject that irks the heck out of me.

I would LOVE if there were a place - just one spot on the web - where we could all compile our combined knowledge of SPECIFIC keyboard sounds from specific tunes/bands.

I'm not talking about "oh...I think they used the Prophet a lot..." That's not too helpful for someone like me hoping to Nail these sounds with existing VST intrument technology.

When I've tried to search for this, mostly social information comes up about these bands...it's very frustrating.

Basically, the folks that MADE these sounds are out there - getting older and possibly more "has-been-ier" How great would it be if they had a place they could visit and be the HERO that reveals the PRECISE recipe for these sounds we all grew up on and loved.

Just my fantasy, I know...

Erik

Ok...

Maybe we could agree on a consensus of VSTs that would serve as the "Core" of ALL wanted synth patches.

For me, I'd like to nominate...

FM7 - Obviously for the DX7 Family of Sounds
Pro-5x - For Prophet-esque Sounds

Would other folks be willing to help come up with these Core VSTs, and maybe we could eventually build a small Database of settings to achieve specific key patches used in specific tunes.

Just an idea.

Erik

I know that there is a Fender Rhodes page dedicated to classic and newer albums that implement the classic sound of the Fender Rhodes electric piano. I have acquired some great albums as a result of it. I think that a search of eg. "Best Moog albums" or something of the sort would yield results for you.

Quadra... apparently you used the wrong search criteria, because:

Vintage Synth Explorer

Excerpt:

"The Vintage Synth Explorer was established back in 1996 in order to provide a fast and easy way to learn about vintage synthesizers. This has grown to include modern digital and analog emulators, software synths, plug-ins, and other new types of synthesizers and samplers.

Here you will find detailed descriptions and reviews, pictures, audio samples, technical specifications, famous users, patch files, manuals, links and more - for over 650 instruments!"


*******************

Navigate to the "timeline" tab first, and click the synths you're interested in learning about.
After you get done with that site, and want to get your hands on free VSTi emulations... just google them.
