The George Hall Collection

Sometimes on Youtube you find channel gems. One such is Dave Clements' as he hosts some excellent tutorials of Synth programming by George Hall. George's tutorials are all done on the Studiologic Sledge but it seemed to me that these would translate quite well to the Peak, so I started programming them using George's Sledge settings, the results of which you can find in the attached sound bank.

These sounds range from traditional organ and piano sounds to some classic trance patches and sounds from artists such as Gary Numan, Tangerine Dream, Jarre and Vangelis. Most of them have transferred rather well but, owing to the differences between the Sledge and the Peak some sound a bit off. For instance, the Dr Who patches, and the Stairway to heaven guitar, which actually makes for a rather nice piano patch. The Thunder is pretty naff tho'!

In programming the Peak patches I've deliberately not used much in the way of the Mod Matrix, or the Animate buttons as the Sledge doesn't have these but you can employ these for your own embellishments. Likewise, the Peak is missing the Flange and Phaser effects of the Sledge so patches such as the Bladerunner Bass are a bit off, tho' still very usable IMO.

So, hope you enjoy and do watch George's tuts. They are well well worth the effort:-)

PS You can find all of the settings from George's tutorials here: http://goo.gl/aMUHG1
This covers all of Georges tutorials so far, tho the patches only go up to Tutorial 52.
