Tony Banks Presets
« on: May 22, 2016, 04:49:17 pm »
Do you guys plan on putting a set of Tony Banks patches together? He used the Synclavier on the Genesis "Mama" album and on Invisible Touch and his solo works.  Specifically, the Mama voice and the lead sound on Second Home By The Sea.  I am not much of a programmer, I know you guys put the In The Air Tonight pad sound on the Prophet.  Also, how about the Gong patch from Beat It?  Or for that matter, why not a "Famous Patches" download for this and other products?

Thanks!
Rodney

Hi Rodney,

We don't have access to every patch that has been made on a Synclavier back in the days unfortunately.
But we've included the Beat It intro patch, you can find it under the "Original" bank, it's called "Phased Gong".

Have fun :)

Hi to all, new member here  :)

I've Just assembled some Tony Banks patches from the Synclavier's libraries for the Arturia Synclavier V, and added a bit of effects.

 Mama - Lead Voice
 That's All - Lead Organ
 Home By the Sea - 1st part Lead
 1st part Vibes
 Lead Voices
 2nd part Lead
 2nd part Ghosts FX (in background during the last guitar solo)
 In quiet earth: Lead

 In .synx bank format and also made a small demo wav file:

Little update to the patches above (V3). Minor tweaks, and also added the stacatto perc synth patch Tony plays on the verses for Home by the sea, so all Sync patches for that song are now accounted for  ;D

Sounds great! Thank you very much!! Another question which patches was the "Ghosts" sound and the "Second Lead" sound?

The 'Ghosts' sounds is 'Complex RTE FX' in the Original Bank. The 'Second Lead' is 'SYNTH LEAD 1' in Timbre Bank 4 (One of the downloadable banks in this forum).

I also discovered that 'Whistle 2' is in 'Silver Rainbow'. There also seems to be some Organ patch there too (IDK which one).

The "Synth Lead 1" sound from the Timbre 4 bank (used on Second Home By The Sea) seems to rely for its character upon a bit depth of 8 - however, this introduces hideous aliasing into the sound, particularly in the upper registers. Simply increasing the bit depth in Synclavier V doesn't work - the sound becomes completely dull. Any work around?
