    I’ve been tinkering around with recreating these classic synth patches and didn’t see anything in the past forum posts.

    The 80’s Brass and Kalimba patches on my keyboards sound similar but a little off so I was thinking of programming it from scratch and wondered if anyone had done that yet here on this forum. I assume it’s easy for most experts to create this patch or something close.

    Been enjoying the Syntorial synth/lessons and learning a lot. Thanks!

    A classic.


    Synth: Primer

    Oscillators: Set both Osc 1 and 2 to Sine.

    Mod Envelope: FM is going to give us that kalimba-style tone, so set destination to FM, and set a quick Decay, around 550 ms. Then set Amount to about Noon. Then turn up Oscillator 2’s Semi knob until you get the bell-like tone you’re looking for. I liked it around 28.

    Amp Envelope: Sustain to zero, and a quick Decay and Release, around 400 ms.

    Reverb: decent amount of size (around Noon), and a light wetness (around 9:00)


    Check out this video, starting at around 2:58:

    Joe, thanks for the patch recommendations! The diagram for the “Brass” in the video is a little tough to read but I’ll give it a go. ­čÖé

    It kind of looks like the LFO is being routed through the filter as a saw wave but I can’t tell the rate or amount.

    Thanks again!
