Nord Lead Classic Analog patch for Virus TI

  • Trying to step up from beginner to a skilled user, this is my first
    attempt to re-create a sound on my 3 months old Virus TI2 Polar. After
    modifying presets and downloaded patches to create "new" "interesting"
    sounds, I decided to try to re-create a sound that I like.


    I chose a sampled Nord Lead 3 patch that I found in Nord's Sample
    Library - NL3 Classic Analog_ste PH_v2 that I downloaded to my Nord
    Electro 3 and used my Virus TI2 to create a sound as close as I can. I
    am not completely satisfied with the result as I discovered during the
    process that the sound changes a lot from lower octaves to higher
    octaves (yes, I already use a lot of animation based on key follow
    settings), so you may suggest some improvements.

  • To me it sounds like you got very close. In the Virus patch I hear a little bit more mid range so try to increase the filter resonance, if you are using only one filter try using two linked in serial or move from SER4 to SER6. Also disable or change the "analog boost" character (FX1 page) if you are using it, and remember you can always reduce the mids with the mid EQ.

  • I had the original nord lead and sold it so i could use simular pad sounds in my TI. :)

  • I have made some improvements to the patch today.
    I also tried flabberbob's recommedations. I was aware that proper EQing should help, but in the Matrix Modulation one can play only with the Mids to set as Key Follow target. After today's testing, I am afraid that the Bass and Treble frequencies would have to be included as well.
    I have no problem sharing the patch with anybody. However, I don't have any account for any filesharing service and don't want to create one just for this. Also it would be nice if the recipient could send one of his personal (non-commercial) patches in return. So, I'd prefer sending the mid file via e-mail (preferrably the one in your vCard in your access account).

    There's no need to upload the MID file, and you can link pics here :)

  • For anybody who is interested, I have just added the link to the pictures of the latest version of the patch setup to my initial message in this thread.
    If you like it, you can thank me with one of your original creations.
