A messy bank with this and that...
« on: January 31, 2015, 03:02:26 PM »
Although it's a mess, I feel like sharing some presets that I use. I didn't come up with all of them: some of them are straight DX7/sysex imports, others copycats of DX7 presets, some inspired by the default presets of the Shruthi (4 & 15) and there is also a preset that widdly shared on the forums (12 & 16).

Those are keyboard playing oriented. I recommend using reverb, I have a TC Hall of Fame and an echo, it helps a lot.

I hope people who know the DX7 will recognize patches 36, 38, 41, 42 and 43, as those are copies from the ROM1A presets. Importing sysex was not providing great results (as Xavier mentions on the website the point is more to start working on sound rather than getting accomplished patches), so I used the freeware "DX7 Librarian" to check out how they were made. I also used this video as a reference for 36 & 38 mainly.

The presets that I came up with and use often would be 1, 8, 11.

The rest are mainly sysex imports. I often use 33.



As you can see most of them are pretty soft on the FM side ;)
Some of them have mod wheel / pitch bend / performance pots active, some others don't.

Thanks a lot clément for sharing this.
I had a try yesterday night, and that's a great bank to have.
I found some really nice presets... from memories, I liked a lot "Pull Marine" and it made me smile. Needs a little chorus to sound like the song, but it's a nice one :)

I linked this thread from the download page.

My pleasure! Ah ah, glad the reference name is paying off, giving a preset the right name is 20% of the sound, I should not neglect this  ;D
A lot of them are just tests or unfinished, but it's always nice to have some stuff to start with.
I'll post here any updates so that they follow on the website as well.

I just uploaded an extended version, same it's pretty rough and not polished, but why not sharing?

Thanks Clément for this update. Yes keep on sharing, don't hesitate.

I'm trying to restock a little the prennfm shop so the forum should be a little more alive in the next few months.

Yep, I noticed there were no full kits available anymore right now ;)

I should really do a video to demo some patches... also, as I'm using mine pretty often, some PreenFM sounds will definitely be on a few records & soundtracks within the few months!
