Nice sounds!

I remember I bought one Wavestation EX to Michel Huygen (Neuronium), it came with all the factory sounds, nothing had been modified! I had heard he only used presets but this was the evidence. When I played it I recognized a lot of sounds used in his records. With the exception of the D-50, the M-1 and the DX-7, it's probably the most used and "recognizable" digital synth.

Hard to program, vectorial synthesis plus no knobs, I found easier to program a SY-22 I also owned at that time, although being less powerful as a sound generator, so I kept the Yamaha and finally sold the Korg. Not a clever decison, I know.

I don't think it is hard to program. There's a certain logic, but once you found that out, you can make any sound you like. I share this experience with more Wavestation users. Some of them find the M1 more to difficult to program.

thanks for the comments Smile

I never understood why people made such a fuss about Huygen... lousy synthesiser programmer. I remember that godawful track on the Dal album which exclusively used one of the most terrible factory patches of the D50. Shoddy stuff.

I never liked the tinkly wave-sequencing stuff on the WS -- this got obnoxious rather quickly and made the WS sound so redundant and instantly recognisable. The textural sounds are so much nicer (although so full of 1990s TD connotations...).

Would you consider sharing the sysex files?

No. These are my sounds which I will use in my music exclusively.
sorry

Nothing is more satisfying than creating ones own patches.

They bring out your musical wit, or they will make you sound like a tone-deaf psycho.

Lovely.

I think creating your own patches/presets is the challenge. Anyway sometimes there are useful sounds made by others.

Today I imported some sysex sounds from the hardware Wavestation to the software one. I wasn't disappointed at all.

I have a Wavestation A/D, the sounds are quite crap and too new-agey sounding. I just use mine as an effects processor as that's all it's good for.

yes, most of them they are. And so 1992. But for making some pads it is excellent.

I have a Wavestation SR that I bought in 1992 and, to this day, it remains one of my favorite synths of all time. Yeah, it's a major pain to program (especially the SR), due to the endless mining in and out of labyrinthine sub-menus, but some extraordinarily beautiful sounds can be achieved with the unit, if one knows what they're doing.
Sure, some of the sounds are unquestionably dated, but many remain quite useful in the hands of an adept programmer with some time on their hands. I certainly don't possess that luxury these days, but I'll never sell mine, that's for sure. I still love it too much.

Bear in mind that programming can be made easier with a good editor/librarian program, such as Sound Quest's Midi Quest. Beats that Godforsaken tiny little LCD screen on the SR.
