14 Classic Rock and Other Patches

Postby WannitBBBad » 07 Sep 2014, 05:23

I have wanted to post for quite awhile, and now that I'm selling my Stage EX to get a Stage 2, I figured it's either now or never. This post has nine programs followed by a reply with another five. I hope some of you find them useful. Thanks.
Update: If you're interested in just the Synth patches, the second page (eleventh post) has quite a few from the Programs below.

Pedal Steel patch with Wurlitzer that I put together for the Pure Prairie League song "Two Lane Highway". The mp3 has another player fading in on Rhodes and then me following with the Pedal Steel.

Patch for the Intro to the Styx song "Too Much Time" covering both parts.

Another Styx patch for the song "Renegade" covering the Hammond with overdriven Leslie and Synth after the guitar solo.

In the 80s I had a Sequential Circuits Prophet 10 that was an incredibly flexible dual manual synth. A favorite patch back then used a square wave with pulse width adjusted to sound somewhat like a clavinet - this one comes close to my Prophet and then some with the addition of effects, organ, strings and clavinet sample.

Always love a blues harp - this one has a bit of distortion:

I put this patch together for a song by EastSouthern called "Whisper" - though it sounds heavy in effects, it fell right into the song well. "Studio Grand 2 YaC7 Sml 5.3" was used for the piano. Listen through the end.

I'm not sure if the original Billy Joel tune "She's Always a Woman" had a background accordion, but I like this patch putting one lightly with "Grand Lady D Stw D Med 5.3".

I tried to get close to the 12-string sound for Hotel California with this program while using one of the Synths for bass:

I know, I know - there are quite a few Van Halen "Jump" patches posted - I tried to capture the slightly decaying volume and closing filter as notes are held with this one.

Here are a few more - take care.

Steve Miller Band's "Jungle Love" intro - 3-split program. The lowest split is the first synthesizer, start with the "REL/DECAY ENV MODE" at about 9-10 o'clock and hit/hold two adjacent notes simultaneously, then slowly turn the knob clockwise to slow down the pulse. The middle split is the synth "whistle", hit quickly as in the song.

John Prine's song "Hello Again" has a great Wurlitzer in it with a very "flutey" Hammond sound - the synth section is used along with the organ to get close.

Emerson Lake and Palmer's "From The Beginning" has nice synthesizer solo in it. This patch uses both synth sections to get the sound.

My Stage 2 came today and I still have my Stage EX, so rather than start from scratch, I plan to write down the EX Synth settings for each of the sounds and see how they transfer to the Stage 2. I'd be glad to post the settings after I get done so you have something to work with if the EX patches aren't compatible with the Classic. Take care.

I would really like to have your patch for "I'm Your Captain" in a Stage 2 format. Did anyone ever come up with a converter from nspg to ns2p?

From what I can tell by the forum, a converter is not available yet - not sure if they can as there are some differences between the two synths. For "I'm Your Captain" for example, white noise is no longer an option with the analog waveforms, however I understand there's a white noise sample to work from. As soon as I get the patches rewritten on the Stage 2, I'll post them in that forum and put a link in this post. Thanks.

But will they work on the regular Stage Classic please?

They should all work also in the NS Classic without problems given the EX and Classic share the same file format.

From comments here and there, it seems that the main difference may be in the filter, so it would be smart if you try to find an equivalence.

It also may be of interest to use the CTRL software to see the classic parameter values!
