91 - How to get some decent sounds from CS1x        

From: Oben
Email: oben@hem2.passagen.se
Date: 04-Apr-99


I've owned my Yamaha CS1x for about a year know, explored every single bit of it. And one thing is for sure, you can't make really thick and juicy synthloops with it (except maybe for some performance patches, which you have tweaked yerself.) My tip for getting some relatively good basslines and mid-leadlines(?), is to tune into the MSB63, LSB4 and patch 10-40. Here we have some little self-distorted 303-like sounds, which may come in handy. The few times i use it in a final mix, i've used the above sounds and modulated the sounds constantly with attack and release time, so you get a kind of Prophecy-bass feel to it. I let the attack/release value alter from tone to tone, giving it a random filter-feel. As in most patches on the CS1x, the cutoff freq. varies along the attack and release envelopes, which is very very handy in this perticular situation. Another thing to thicken yer loops is to vary the reverb and chorus (but make sure you've got a THICK chorus, 'cause the other ones suck.) Conclusion : use alot of varying parameters when dealing with the cs1x, especially when it comes to basslines and mid-sweep-lines. Hope you get some decent sound from this plastic bitch.
