NE5 : Summer of 69 Patch

Postby Berties1 » 11 Oct 2015, 22:19

Evening all,

New to Nord having just purchased an Electro 5 after a lot of years in retirement and I am loving it :thumbup:

Does anyone have a compatible patch for Summer of 69 please or can tell me what settings they use? Patch I have found on forum is 'nspg' and is not supported by Electro 5 and to be honest I'm a bit lost.... :crazy:

Cheers
Bertie

There are two basic sounds you'll need. The first is a generic "rock organ" sound for the choruses, and a simple synth patch for the little keyboard riff. Unfortunately, the NE5 doesn't have a synth section, so you'll need to look through the Nord Sample library to try and find something similar. You're looking for a basic pulse-wave patch with a piano-like envelope on it, nothing too fancy. Add a bit of chorus to finish it off.

Personally, I also play along with the verse chords with a general chorused piano sound just for something to do.

Edit:

1. For the organ sound, first select B3 Organ Model.

Then switch on the Leslie simulator: select Rotary in the SPKR/COMP part of the Effects section.

Add some overdrive buy using the DRVE/COMP knob in the same section. Try setting it between about 3 and 6 to start with.

Then set the drawbars to something like 688855000 to start with. If you need it closer, try starting with 6888 and then fiddle with adding some of the higher drawbars to taste.

(No VIBRATO/CHORUS or PERCUSSION necessary).

Use plenty of Rotary Slow/Fast switching for dramatic effect ;)

2. For the Synth sound, try "Fat Clav" on this page: http://www.nordkeyboards.com/sound-libr ... -2-0/synth

and add some chorus to thicken it up.

Try some of the Fairlight Clavs as well, the Clav Orch worked well for me http://www.nordkeyboards.com/sound-libr ... ht-keys-20

You might want to try to use the cp80 electric grand piano instead of the synth clav on this one.

I asked Tommy Mandel (the keyboard player with Bryan Adams at the time) what sound he used for the song. His answer:
"It was an edit of an OB-Xa patch, but I don't remember which one."
So at least that narrowed down the search a bit.

He also gave some info on the sound used at Run To You:
"On Run To You, we used a DX7 patch that I had previously edited from their Orchestra factory patch for a session out at Fred Guardino's Tiki Studios (as my friend and co-keys brother, Spyros Poulos will remember!) which I'd renamed Ork-Tiki. Bryan thought that was funny."

For the second sound, i use a keyboard/bells sound. My favourite one is the d50's fantasia sample, available on the stage 2 section
NS 2 EX 88
Kronos v3...61 + exs
Triton
DX7
P80
Mainstage 3

Here's my first take on the patch. It is a tweaked Clavinet preset from the OBXD VST instrument. I'll post an mp3 sound example soon. It does need some extra reverb and a bit of adjusting of the decay/release.
