TAL-Pha

TAL-Pha is an instrument plug-in that emulates the sound of the analog 80's synthesizer Alpha Juno II (MKS-50 is the rack version).

The plug-in produces the classic analog sound, combined with modern flexibility and many additional functions. The plug-in can read and convert sysex information from the hardware and can also be used as a controller.

This was a post on vicontrol which was either removed or moved because I can't find it anymore.

Basically, The Unfinished (https://twitter.com/MattBowdler) has some demos up of a new synth to be released tomorrow.

He gave some hints:

* "It's a mid-80s synth from one of the big hitters of the analogue synth world. Got used a lot in synth pop, techno, and rave."

* Apparently, 40 different synths were guessed and no one got it right.

* He also hinted something about the developer - that they have other synths available and that they're "pretty good" and that we all most likely have at least one of their synths.

* It's also polyphonic.

He posted some Youtube demos:

Demo 1

Demo 2

Demo 3

It's not Synapse. Not Cherry Audio.

Guessing it's from Softube.

Anyway...speculate away.

It sounds nice, whatever it is. 😎

I may be way off, but my guess is the Kawai SX-210.

I was thinking Kawaii, Akai, Crumar or Casio as "mid-80s" candidates. And in that, a SX or AX (60?). Something on the bottom end leans me more to Crumar though and some of the midrange presents feels a little Casio.

Anyone have the list of 40 already guessed?

Post

I haven't seen the list. I would have guessed an Alpha Juno but those demos don't scream Alpha Juno to me.

Yeah, that's LATE 80s anyway.

Arturia? Doing an Alpha Juno finally? (It came out in 1985).


EDIT:
Preset 68 SeqBass is mighty close! From this video at 23:00 (https://youtu.be/UdJZgOKsA7E) to that played in the Demo 2 bass.

Icarus 3

Kawai K5 (though not a hit synth) or impOSCar 3.

Edit: Just realized it's supposed to be based on an analog synth. What if it's actually a digital synth like the TX81Z, and the sounds in the video are designed to trick us into thinking it's something else?

Nice, but not an emulation.

Korg DW or DSS?

If he thinks we all have a synth by them it's probably Arturia. The wording suggests Roland and the Alpha Juno, or maybe Kawai and the K5. Not many combos that fit the bill.

Arturia JX-8P
THIS MUSIC HAS BEEN MIXED TO BE PLAYED LOUD SO TURN IT UP

Begs the question of whether the "synth we owned" is software at all though.
That does suggest one of the more popular in the 80s to start then. Korg, Moog, Roland, Sequential, Yamaha. The others we've suggested are not nearly as ubiquitous across the markets. Unless their advertising is to be believed.

Also, there's a question of it being analog or digitally controlled analog?
