This week’s sonic smorgasbord contains sample packs for Yamaha’s new SEQTRAK and Kontakt, a free bank of CS-80 style sounds for KORG’s modwave and a new way to store sounds on vintage KORG synths!

Easy Sounds Drum Machine Libraries

No sooner had Santa distributed his Xmas goodies last year, Yamaha gave us a brilliant start to the new year when they out-Teenage Engineered Teenage Engineering with the SEQTRAK. Making tunes on the move never looked or sounded so good!

And now long-time Yamaha supporters, Easy Sounds, have released their first two sample expansion packs for the new baby Yamaha. Taking inspiration from two classic drum machines, LD and CR expand your SEQTRAK with some classic beats.

CR, which honours the Roland CR-78, has roughly the same amount of samples and projects to get you started and give you the feel of that first-ever programmable drum machine. That machine is certainly having a bit of a renaissance, isn’t it?

Each SEQTRAK pak costs a mere €16 and is available as a download only from the Easy Sounds online store.

Void and Vista – FOLDS

Void & Vista are pretty new on the sample library scene and got off to a cracking start with STRANDS. Now we have their sophomore release, FOLDS. Based on the human voice, FOLDS delivers something that is truly unique. You don’t often get to say that these days.

Featuring samples from both male and female voices, they have captured an eclectic blend of vocalisations not normally heard in such libraries. These sounds can be layered, shaped and processed to make them even more unique.

Void and Vista FOLDS

FOLDS comes with 4.5GB of samples that populate more than 300 presets. The interactive UI has over 150 controls and features two morph layers with a multi-mode filter. There’s even a convolution processor that allows users to import their own impulse responses.

Hypersynth H-101 Card for Vintage KORG synths

I have been a fan of HyperSynth and their modern-day storage options for vintage synths for a long time. I own at least three of their cards which have made using my DX1, DX5 and DX7-IIFD an absolute breeze.

However, the H-101 card represents a big advance in their technology. Instead of a 2-digit LED display, the H-101 now features a large, OLED screen that delivers a wealth of useful information.

H-101 in an A1 Performance Signal Processor

The H-101 is specifically designed to be used in classic KORG digital synths such as the M1, Wavestation and T Series, as well as the A1 Performance Signal Processor. It can support up to 126 banks for multiple synths at a time and comes with 73 pre-loaded banks, drawing from many classic original cards. The H-101 also features 11 new banks from HyperSynth themselves.

More Information

The display is 128×128 pixels and super clear. It can be easily viewed from any angle. Better still, it auto rotates depending on the angle it is positioned in. This is really useful for synths where the slot is vertical and not horizontal.

Having such a detailed screen means you can now view patch and bank names without having to refer to a separate document. The four touch-sensitive buttons allow you to easily navigate around the banks. No battery is required and the case is a CNC manufactured metal affair and scratch resistant

HyperSynth H-101

If you own one of the supported KORG synths, this is an absolute must. The prices that original cards command these days mean that the H-101 represents excellent value for money. And it’s infinitely easier to use than an original card and/or SysEx device.

Blade Runner Inspired: CS-80 Sounds for Korg Modwave

Let’s be honest. The CS-80 is rightly revered as one of the greatest analog synths of all time. Maybe even the greatest synth of any kind. Whether you agree with that sentiment or not, countless sound designers have striven to recreate its unique tone on other synths.

And now the KORG modwave gets a chance to have a go with this new FREE soundbank from Ian Dixon. Ian has a website and YouTube channel called ‘The Digital Lifestyle’ where he covers all sorts of music tech. There are interviews, tutorials and, as featured here, some great sound sets to download.

The Yamaha CS-80 Collection for KORG modwave

This particular collection contains performances and programs that draw inspiration from the mighty CS-80. As with most banks like this, Vangelis’ Blade Runner features heavily as an inspiration and Ian aims to capture these using the KORG modwave.

This bank is compatible with every version of the modwave including the Mk.1 and Mk.2 keyboards, the Module version and the modwave native plugin. Check out Ian’s video below for a demo and walkthrough the sounds and how he made them.
