Sometimes you're on a yak and want to make some phat beatz and wikkid tunez.
Some synths have the right high-frequency characteristics and tweeter inducing properties to overcome a yak's high pitched squealing.

What would be your top 5 synths in this scenario?

Mine would be:

1) Zebra (it's not quite a yak, but I think a yak would like a Zebra).

2) Alchemy by Camel Audio (again, I think a yak would like anything by Camel, although it might not like the way in which naughty Apple nabbed this beauty)

3) Sounds of Nature by Xoxos (I think a yak would dig this sort of thing)

4) The Shepherd by Simple-Media (tbh, I'm not sure what a person who looks after a yak is called, but I think the skills of a shepherd would be respected by a yak).

5) Any synth that features presets by Himalaya (because that's where many yaks like to roam).


So what would be your top 5 synths for using on a yak?

ps, although many of you more knowledgeable yak travellers will know that a yak usually emits a low sort of grunting, in fairness you can sometimes make them squeal in a charmingly high pitched way too.

Imho a company such as iZotope should release a Yak plugin to compensate those natural weaknesses everybody meets soon or late. This is more than needed.

LinPlug's Saxlab. Although discontinued I still find it the best instrument to prevent the yak talking back whilst playing.
Feel free to call me Brian.

Can someone define what a YAK is please ?

I know the animal but I don't understand how it can be related to a virtual synth.

Delay Lama just puts me in the right mental space to appreciate that yak experience, you know?
