Crankshaft: DX7 V
64 new lo-fi and ambient programs for DX7 V, the Arturia’s wonderful FM VST synthesizer
We targeted Ambient, Lo-fi, and Chill sounds for Crankshaft – 64 sounds in all for Arturia’s DX7 V. We didn’t design your typical FM sounds either. When we think of this library, we think of the words “pad”, “motion”, “low-fidelity”, and “noise”. Noise that you’ll be able to highlight or tame in your DAW with a little effects processing.
We imagined sounds that the Mellotron would make – not analog synths, not FM synths – sounds that only a DX could make, but with movement and character. Let’s get this straight, about the noise we mentioned – we’re not talking about bad noise, we’re talking musical noise and life – breathiness, shimmer, high-frequency tones – things that sterile, dead sounds just don’t have.
Make sure to try velocity and the Mod Wheel with these sounds – DX7 V is a close emulation of the DX7 itself, with tons of modulation options, so you’ll still find dynamic changes and movement in the sounds. Don’t forget to play with the Low-Pass Filter and the controller routings in DX7 V – they add a “depth of flavor” to each patch – we leave it up to you to apply to taste.
