The Yamaha Electone D-85 is the source of sounds in the fourth volume of the Vintage Keyboard Collection of Precision Sound.
The D-85 is completely analog and uses a technique called PASS (Pulse Analog Synthesis System) developed for the legendary Electone GX-1. The sound of the D-85 is rich warm big and very much analog synth and not typical organ. The Gothic choir sound of the D-85 is absolutely superb and Kraftwerk type of sounding. The strings and pads are rich and warm.
From Precision Sound have also programmed additional sound variations for EXS24, HALion and Kontakt by layering filtering etc. based on the core sounds of the instrument. The built in drum machine has a clearer more thin sound than for example the Ace Tone/Roland and the programming is a bit more progressive, explain the producer.
All grooves have been sampled in low tempo and different mixes and both with the fills they now come in A, B and Mixed versions.
The D-85 SampleSet contains:
– 511 24bit mono WAV samples of the instruments and 208 24bit mono WAV grooves
