When New Ideas Don’t Work Try Old Ones

For SounDevotion Competition Round 85

This round featured Dexed, a great DX7 VST. Though I learned synthesis on a 4op Yamaha, 6 operators make a world of difference I wish I had a long time ago, to a point that I priced TX802s…. (For the price, a bunch of Dexed instances in Renoise beats trying to control and mix a TX or two, no doubt.)

Many of the tones have a Renoise LFO adjusting a modulator’s ratio. This causes the overtones of different hits to change slightly, creating a more realistic sound in some cases, an effect I exploited often when I was in college.
