Log Synth

Postby ginge6000 » Tue Jan 19, 2010 4:03 pm

Hi all. I'm programming a synth module for a show and one of the voices in the keyboard part is "Log Synth". What would anyone think this should sound like? I'm completely stumped (pardon the pun!) Any advice, or example sounds would be very welcome!

LOG Synth is a virtual analog style synth featuring two oscillators with Analog Pitch Modulation, one Pulse Mod control, a Sub Oscillator, Vibrato speed and depth control and Glide (portamento).

This dope I found on http://www.plugorama.com/customer/free_plugins.php

Press ctrl + F and search for log synth, or else manually do that.

Point is Log is nothing but a VST or AU or DX or TDM etc. etc. synth.

I hope it helps. ;)

Hmm, thanks for that. Can't seem to find a demo of it anywhere. Now I just need to work out how to replicate it on my JV1080.....!

Unless it's a reference to the 'log' patch that came standard on DX7s all those years ago. Sounded vaguely like someone hitting ... a log, would you believe. ;)

That's what I though when I read the thread title.

It was an acoustic yet synthy sound. Sounded half decent when layered with drums or basses.

My bet is it's log drum patch. Anything like a marimba or the like will be close, but I would imagine there's something 'loggy' in a JV.

Cue the lumberjack song :beamup:

Oh...

I'll get my coat :D

P.S. I'm siding with Tom, Zuke and Elf on this one, for a marimba-style sound.

"now then ... it's getting chilly... no, that is a DX7, not a log. Don't throw it in the fire... yes, I know all these synths are cluttering up the place but ... nooooooooo!!!!"

So is that why the DX-7 was brown?
