A collection of rough approximations of M**g modules selected to reflect the basic resources of a Yamaha CS-80 'voice', enabling the creation of two independent VCO/VCF/VCA 'synthlines' :
From left to right:
-VCO 1 (used as LFO).
-VCO 2 > VCF 1 (w EG 1) > VCA 1 (wEG 2). This is 'synthline '1.
-VCO 3 > VCF 2 (wEG 3) > VCA 2 (wEG 4). This is 'synthline' 2.
A second version is available that arranges the modules in the order used in the M**g System 35 : VCOs > VCFs > VCAs > EGs.
These only approximate the basic functions of the modules - there's no claim they sound like their inspirations.
VCOs 2 and 3 veer from emulation to include internal PWM LFOs, like the CS-80, in place of the 'Aux Waveforms' sections.
The filters veer from emulation in each containing a 2-pole HPF in series with a 2-pole LPF that share common control inputs, again as in the CS-80.
The oscillators' waveform outputs have been implemented as individual level controls for each waveform, rather than each having a separate output; VCO 1's mixed waves are available separately from the 'Aux Waveform' out.
Patching is by drop-down menus at each input; input 'jacks' double as input level adjustments, saving on mixer/attenuator use.
32-bit, so will require jBridge, etc., (or a DAW that will bridge) for use on 64-bit systems.
The link on the website is to a Sync.com folder that also contains the .osm Synthmaker source 'schematics', so anyone with SM, or it's successor Flowstone, can alter it to suit. It's hoped that anyone who makes significant improvements will share the result with everyone.
As this was originally built for my own use only, there are no presets included; I wanted to come at the instrument anew each time, as one did with vintage analog hardware.
