DX7 - Dexed 25th Anniversary_KUJASHI Soundbanks
(14-11-2016, 02:52 PM)Kujaschi link Wrote:To DEXED:
I have the 0.91 version and couldn´t find a MK I option?, ...
Hmmm... maybe you should try your other pair of glasses?  Old

The "engine resolution" options were introduced with v 0.8.0. The latest version 0.9.2b1 lost 3 of the buttons in the lower left corner, but the "PRM" button is still there, with the  "engine resolution" menu. Try playing around with it. It can really make a difference of day and night.

The other important thing is to check how things sound with lower velocity. Dexed sounds generally closer than FM8, but for some sounds it still needs a bit less velocity (just substract 5% to 15 %).

The only problem I have with the update is that FXP files saved with 0.8.0. (with tweaks and all) won't load in version 0.9.2b1. To transfer the selection I made to the new version, I have to use the SysEx file format (which works fine when exported from v 0.8.0). Hopefully this can somehow be improved, so it will be easier to update versions.

On the other hand, v 0.9.2b1 introduces a "master tune", which means it's now possible to properly stack the same preset with some detune, as many times your DAW can handle, and do those DX1/5/802/816 flavors  Confusedmoke1

Quote:... but some members of
KVR wrote in that thread, there are some differences in sound too.
And you heard that for yourself by the sound "DTaenzerin". Yah, it may come
close, but not too close.
Again, with the right settings - to me - Dexed sounds more like the TX802. But for this particular preset FM8 sounds better than both Dexed and hardware. This is encouraging of course, as it means there are still good and unique results to be had with it and things to explore.  Grins

Quote:I think, the DEXED can reproduce all that known DX7 sounds like those factory
sounds, but some special things (like the Atmo5) sound, you have to change
some parameters.
Really, try the above tips. You might (still) be amazed. Wink

Quote:These patches sounds completely different in HEXTER - for example.....
There's no comparison with Dexed and FM8, really. It was a good effort when it came out, but Hexter is now definitely obsolete.

Quote:And this is so true, what you´ve said: DX7 patches sounds very timeless.
For me this is nostalgia too - As I´ve played through my collection, old
memories and pictures of the past passed by.....


Yes, there are zillion of soundbanks for the DX-series out there. I´ve tried
the most (that comes with DEXED (the BlackWinny´s), and some years
before (loaded into my FM7). But in most times, I was dissapointed.
These are mostly reproductions of the factory banks, so many doubled
and threefold sounds and many patches seems likely made as with a
"random" function.
So there are only a few good designers, who made some interesting banks
and who has gone deeper into that synthesis.....
Well, it takes some time, but when you know what you're looking for and how to throw out uninteresting "doubles", and if you have the right method for organizing things, there's some great stuff to be found.

I've actually not explored the banks that have been included with Dexed very much. I've gone straight to what I've been able to find online. I remember liking Tim Conrardy's stuff quite a lot. But there's much more... I've counted more than 7800 banks on my HD, which I didn't check all of course (there are surely doubles) Confusedtars

Studio One has this very useful option to save presets in a Studio One format, which can make it really easy to assemble your own library. Once that's done, it's a breeze to get the sound you're looking for (if it's there).

As things are now, I find the way sounds are organized with Dexed awkward. You can't replace a preset within a bank, and it doesn't work with FXP, so that leaves things stuck and difficult to handle. Hope this will be improved. Library wise, with FM8 you can organize sounds in a number of ways. Great.

Quote:The DX1 and DX5 was big and truly masters of the DX-series.
So the DX5 has two FM-engines under the hood and the DX1 looks like
the master of the universe - that really huge chassis and sound - but
very expensive too.

And this is the point:
The nostalgia with those sounds too - but I can remember
the many hours of programming/playing and being lost in
the synthesis - It´s the same, some musicians are telling about the
fundamental difference between soft- and hardware.....
Just the smell of the DX7 - after some time, a special smell was in the air.
Something software lacks, cos it can´t. Not only the lack of sliders or
knobs - the haptic feeling (ok, the DX7 has only this one Data-Entry-slider),
but something for your nose, you´ll never forget.
But this don´t belong here.... just a private memory.

So, I don´t know, if a DX7 sound may sounds different in a DX5/DX1.
Or in the TX816? It´s the same engine....
They all sound slightly different  Dingo

For sure, with PC it's possible to make the best out of the digital sound engine. So with the right tweaks and processing, results can truly be stunning  :top2

Take care Wink
