Product Overview

In the lab, for years, covered by other instruments and things, there was this old Italian analog synthesizer from 1979: the Jen SX1000. Monophonic with just 1 oscillator, it was often called “poor man’s Moog”.

Further Details

It is always hard to sample analog gears so, instead of trying to clone it (which is obviously impossible for a sampler), we decided to use the samples of each waveform to build an hybrid synthesizer taking advantage of the Kontakt Script language.

It sounds both vintage and new! It is also possible to drift the oscillators to emulate the tuning problems of vintage analog synthesizers and to hear the usual knobs noise caused by dust while tweaking them.

The Performance View follows the original parameters scheme adding, of course, new features.

SX1500 un petit synthé original !

Synthé Kontakt, pas cher, réglage simple et efficace, 24 presets et un filtre trés sympa.
Son origine c'est un vieux analogue italien de 1979 le Jen SX1000.
Il faut triturer un peu le son pour en sortir du gros, quelques fois c'est émorme.
De préférence utiliser des effets externe (Hardware) comme Lexicon, DBX, TubeTech, Filtre Moog, etc, pour lui redonner du "Juice" et du grain, ce qui lui apporte juste ce qu'il manquait pour être parfait ;-)
A utiliser sans modération pour tout style de musique.
Bravo AudioThing
