Hey, thanks Functionform, but did you hear my crashes!? Epic tom roll followed by pssssshhhhhhhh lol

I was pretty surprised when I came up with the tom patch. They sound more acoustic than synth. My tune's a little too happy sounding right now, so hoping to mean it up.

I'll grant you're wish and keep the tom patch to myself, but feel free to ask for the crash patch! :hihi:

NeverScene haha, I'll ask for the them after submission deadline, so do save it!

Blamsoft, you were right, the HQ filter used equally tough cpu on the older patch. I don't get it - I swore it didn't. I had to change all my patches to Standard filter. So weird. Standard is more than good enough, but I'll miss that crispy HQ. Onward and upward!

Hi, first time here! Fun - and frustrating as well, to work within such a limited framework, especially with a monophonic synth. Polyphony is definitely my thing. But I learnt a lot about the possibilities of this synth - I'm a lot more favorable to VK-1 Viking after spending some time creating this little snippet.

DAW:
PreSonus Studio One Professional

Fx:
2 Limiters
2 ProEQ's
2 Binaural Pans
3 Room Reverbs
1 Beat Delay

all PreSonus stock plugins.

* Update: Listening again this morning, I have added a bit of Variety of Sound's excellent and free Boot EQ MKII on my master channel. I had planned to stick with stock fx only, but I'm totally addicted to this old 32-bit EQ. *

Synth:
- 33 x Blamsoft VK-1 Viking

That's a lot of memory ...

With Reaper and 28 VK1's and 73 FX online, I see 8852.6 MB memory usage and 20% cpu use.

Hey Schiing, sounds much better with the eq.

Thanks, TheNeverScene!

I have to admit that I tidied up the kick and added a few bits here and there while I was at it, but yes, it definitely needed some eq shaping. And there's a subtle tube/drive effect as well on that eq that really benefits the sound.

You have some interesting things going on with your track! Those toms fascinate me quite a bit.

I agree - much much better. I used to use BootEQ MKII myself - now I am addicted to using TDR SlickEQ and Ferric TDS combo. Similar effect, but you can control the added dynamics/saturation more closely with Ferric - and be more subtle about it :wink:

Thanks, doctorbob! I like Ferric, too - I have only used it on instrument buses so far, though. I almost always use BootEQ to subtract from the upper and lower frequencies, so I don't know to what degree I actually activate the saturation effects, but it often ends up sounding right to me in the end, so I don't question the process too much :-)

Blamsoft, is there any chance you will add a dark skin?

Was the direct download link taken down? It looks now like you have to pay at least something to get the download link?
