I'm a newbie & I want to create that "Tom Sawyer" sound from Rush. I have the 50th Anniversary Edition with the glow in the dark panel. I need to know what sound name to start with & the settings to use. If anyone has that sound "nailed", plmk. Thanks in advance, Bill. Smile

Not the answer you want, but if you want to understand programming it's better to take the time to find your way there..

Unfortunately ... you have the wrong instrument.

That sound was created on a Yamaha CS-80. The Mini (even the new one) while a wonderful machine does not have the modulation capabilities the CS-80 had. Not even close. While a very similar sound can be produced, there are at least 3 modulation schemes going on. One to the oscillators, one to the filters (two filter types were used on this sound) and another modulating the modulation sent to the filters. Also the "briliance" control on the CS-80 was being modulated as well I beleive, but I could be wrong.

The mini is not this type of synth with these kinds of modulation capabilities. It's a lead synth. A really cool one with the fatest sounds out there, BUt if your looking to produce that sound accurately, the Voyager just won't cut it. Now a MemoryMoog? There ya go! I could lend you one maybe. How about a IIIc, got one those as well. Well maybe its just to damn big! Smile

Incidentially, why did you buy such a wonderful synthesizer when it's clear you know nothing about synthesis. A factory patch user eh? Read bro! Check out Dr. Deutsch's book on Basic Synthesis. Read on the web. It's all out there to learn. Don't be a factory patch jockey ... create your own work ... be innovative and creative on your own.

Along with reading the recommended book I would post asking about other books that have beneficial to others in your situation. There are
several available along with info that you can access via the internet.

Also, I would attempt to find a synthesist that would be willing to help you
understand what you will be reading with hands-on training. This approach
may cost you a little money, but in my opinion would be well worth it.

No matter how you decide to address your concern you can STILL enjoy
your synthesizer no matter what degree of expertise that you attain.

Best Wishes,
Harry

Geddy said it was his new Taurus II pedals. Basically a Moog Rogue. The Tom Sawyer sound is easy to replicate on a Voyager but remember to add echo and reverb.

L8rdood -

A new Minimoog Voyager site was started three months ago called SquareWave: The Voyager Resource. The purpose of the site is to give Voyager owners a place to upload and share patches, and collect and organize tips, advice and help on all-things-Voyager. This site is not in competition with the Moog Music Voyager forum, rather it is an additional resource for all Voyager owners that goes beyond what the Moog forum currently provides.

Among the many offerings, there's a Recommended Reading list posted in the Resource folder. Check it out at:
