Famous Synth Sounds Vol #1


Here’s the first volume of famous synth sounds for the Korg Kronos.  Hopefully there will be others, but there’s no guarantee.  These were created primarily from scratch largely using the powerful AL-1 virtual analog engine on the Kronos. 

I want to acknowledge the useful information I derived from Mitchell Sigman’s book “Steal this Sound” as well as the programs found in the OP-X Pro soft synth by SonicProjects.  For most of the sounds I was able to find drum tracks that fit the song and tempo.  You can use these for practice or performances.  Please read through the performance notes (found in the ZIP file) when available as they make sense of how I intended the programs to be played.  If no performance notes are available, the program should be played straight up.
