Pomp by synthlib on Sep 30, 2016

A sort of classic synth tone with analog waves and filter cutoff controlled by the envelope with plenty of resonance. Chorus and delay round it out.

Categories: basic, resonance, analog

Slopit! by synthlib on Sep 29, 2016

Using slow LFO pitch modulation to create unstable-sounding oscillators like you might find in old, analog gear. This is similar to the “slop” setting on newer DSI prophets.

Round and deep bass with a clinkey attack.

microKORG Patch Usage

Select any preset on the microKORG, then send the sysex data from the patches here using a MIDI system exclusive utility for your computer. The patch should load in “audition” mode on the microKORG. Play and tweak as needed, then save the new sound using the “Write” button.

If nothing happens when transmitting the sysex data, try setting the microKORG to receive on a different MIDI channel.
