Vaporware filter on the V-synth by Roland.



To get a really soft filter on the V-Synth, the Lo-fi filter can be used over COSM2. Do not use the bit crushing. Bitrate can be about 9 or ten or not used. Turn the filter close to all the way down. Balance to the right. Something about this filter is different than the -6db and 12db standard filters! You can get rid of all the aliasing and harshness. Now you can make synth sounds with COSM1 standard filters before the lo-fi.

For added touch, the radio master filter can have noise set to 1. tuning Zero.
The V-synth also has super long reverbs that also have filtering. Not to mention this has the space echo and chorus. Perfect Vaporware style!

I suppose you could run your entire mix through it if you were crazy. Or just run some samples around.

You never know what I'll discover on this keyboard....

The Arturia Matrixbrute Should Get Synth of the Year

I kind of want a Matrixbrute. It sounds amazing. It looks like an analog programmer's dream. Nothing really steps up to my V-synth....I don't need analog sound at that price, but I still want to play with it. Matrixbrute is a big expensive TOY.

I kind of like the TC electronics FX they put in the Behringer analog machine. The tone is a bit limited and same-y IMO and it doesn't do as much. I wouldn't recommend that just by looking at it and other reports. I don't think people should pay that much money. Not a value. You have to pay too much to get analog sound. BUT sometimes digital is better. Go digital if you want to save yourself. Its cheap, it has less noise, and it does more.

Thoughts from my brain.

Guitar Emulation Video

It is 2017 and I'm back. Here is a short video I made today showing a guitar patch I've created. You can subscribe to my YouTube if you like following me. At one point in time I had a Reason tutorial that gained over a million views (or maybe it was over 100k? It was a lot and I can't remember). I deleted the channel because of abusive comments...My theory was naming my gear and keywording equipment grabbed the wrong people (like forum members and places I no longer post to). I used to have many synth videos, patch demos, and some PS2 gameplay. I'm not sure what kind of videos I want to put out next (I don't like editing). It may be artwork / synth / or gaming. I have to re-learn a lot of editing and possibly upgrade equipment. I want to put more artwork out there. Happy 2017.
