We are proud to present our 100 brand new presets for the Akai AX-73 & Akai VX-90. These vintage synthesizers from 1986 are true classic analog synthesizers with a very special character. Underestimated by many, but the true connoisseur knows what these beautiful sounding synths can do. Both synths have VCOs and analog 24dB lowpass filter. Unique is the PWM that can be used on any waveform of the VCO creating all kinds of sonic flavours.
Many late 80's synthesizers suffered from the lack of knobs and sliders to program sounds. This resulted in the end users often not being able to understand the synths properly. Designing usable sound patches was therefore a challenge. This also applies to the Akai AX-73 & Akai VX-90.
Sonic Freaks has therefore designed 100 very useful and modern sounding patches. These patches are fully compatible with the Tauntek firmware upgrade for the Akai AX-73 & Akai VX-90 and can, provided this upgrade has been performed, be loaded into the synth using a sysex dump.
Also included is a high resolution tape dump (44Khz - 24Bit) which you can be loaded into the Akai AX-73 or Akai VX-90 using a traditional tape dump. For more details, please read the installation instructions!
Akai AX-73 or Akai VX-90
When using the sysex file you need the Tauntek firmware update. Also you will need a computer with midi interface for transfer of the sysex file. Please refer to our installation instructions.
When using the tape dump file you will need either a DAW capable of playing audio files (44.1Khz - 24 Bit) or a audio player. Please refer to our installation instructions.
No unfortunately not. You need the GliGli upgrade to use the presets.
No. Just upgrade your P600 with the GliGli mod and you gain so many extra features and sound possiblities. Its worth it.
Not at all. There are complete mods available online you just have to plug into your Prophet 600. You can also buy a teensy and do it completely yourself. Its not difficult and very cheap. The gligli software is completely free and can be downloaded here.
The developer of the gligli software is Fabrice AKA GliGli (from France). Checkout his website.
Sonic Freaks is in no way associated with the development, distribution, maintenance and/or support of the gligli mod software.
