What does a Yamaha CS-40m sound like?

25 Nov

What sounds can you make with a Yamaha CS-40m analog synthesizer? Here is a collection of custom patches that I programmed into my Yamaha CS-40m. The demo includes basses, leads, sound effects, and more. I recorded these patches dry into Ableton Live. No effects processing was done. All parts were played by myself.

What does a Roland Juno-60 sound like?

2 Nov

What sounds can you make with a Roland Juno-60 polyphonic analog synthesizer? Here is a collection of custom patches that I programmed into my Roland Juno-60. The demo includes basses, strings, pads, arpeggios, and more. I recorded these patches dry into Ableton Live, and then used Ableton’s Large Space Chorus reverb preset to add some ambiance. (Ableton’s reverb sounds great on synths.) No other processing was done. All parts were played by myself; no DCB-MIDI conversion was used.
