Wow!!what is the sound that comes in at 208-230 its like a haunting pad type sound its beautiful.I would love that sound.

Listen to the track 'Dreams' by Ultravox, it's the same sound/theme. They used about 3 or 4 sounds from that soundbank on that track. I got it on a 5.25" disk in a library of about 50 but don't recall coming across it in the Sound Designer banks.... Huh

I did have sound designer but could never get the mac  to communicate with the emu :-(

Could be several reasons for this, you'd need to advise more details on the EII, Mac, OS, ports used etc.

You can find the haunting pad sound on the Greytsounds Volume 1 CD-ROM available for many classic samplers as well as in their Akai S-900 floppy sound library - there it's called Fairlight II Soundtrax.

JMP - Please when you can you post the list of sample names and their banks for your demo? What's the name of the preset in Black celebration of Depeche Mode?
Thank you.

Ah sorry, I'd forgotten....  It'll take me a while tracing back and re-loading the sounds to check which they were so bear with me.

I'm part way through it. Problem is I'm having to load up all the sounds again to find the ones I chose for the demos, didn't bother writing them down you see.....  Roll Eyes

I can list about 2/3 rds of the sounds used in both demos if you want, not sure when I'm going to have the time to find the remainder....

Found it !
Expensive Synth Stack indeed, on UOS volume 2, Synthesizers section.
And the presets are called LIQ STK.
Yes, this sounds really great !

Thanks

///E-Synthesist

Note that the “usual” Expensive Synth Stack bank contains several incarnations of the “Liquid Stack” stuff, but none of them is “decomposed” so as to e.g. show the pad-like, string-y basis for it. In fact they sound quite similar to each other, the 4 or so patches in the bank, at least when you use it in converted form to soundfonts or EMulator X soft, etc.

Instead there are other versions of this bank around, for instance if you watch one of the EMulator showcases from Youtuber SynthMania you can see he uses 4 variations of Liquid Synth, and the last one is just the pad base. Sounds great for a change!:

https://youtu.be/9nr_IX_KpqY

(I know, I posted a question to him about this issue, but lacking an answer I put myself to task and browsed thru the available converted libraries to see the truth by myself hehe...) (yeah I am too freak!)

It turned out, the EMAX version of the OMI Universe of Sounds comes with the “varied” bank. If someone out there in the forum reading this wants to try the difference, I can provide him/her with a converted soundfont or whatever. (btw I also programmed a different fifth variation myself touching it a bit with the tools provided by EMulator X2 soft, which is great for some of us lacking real access to a real EMulator!)

See attached mp3 file for a listen to my modified pad element-only Liquid Stack variation. I also attached a little screen capture that shows the preset loaded into my EmuX2.

Some interesting trivia: The usual, say, preset 1 for this, can be clearly heard in the line beginning “Love Resurrection” by Christian pop-rock artist Kim Boyce, see how evident in this link:

https://youtu.be/N0ozhOZEoY4

Or is it just me who hears the liquid synth patch there? (with some extra stuff layered, I know...)


Well this is my 2cents worth of patch trivia and parafernalia,for now Smiley

Happy Emulating!!

This is wrong, IMHO, i just checked (being a preset freak as I am lol!), the preset used is Orch Chords2 in bank Orchestral Chords from the EMU EMulator II original library (disk 65 it seems).

You can listen to the attached mp3 in this message to confirm this (I recorded myself one of the motifs of the JMPSynth demo showcase for this particular patch.) I also upload a little screen capture that shows this bank loaded into my EmuX2 (yep, I love it!)

You’re welcome hehe!  (someone has to do the remaining patch matching as JMPSynth seems out of touch and did not get to complete the list regarding his excellent 2 demo showcases on YouTube...)

Happy Emulating!
