ME80 manual.

Sounds:

ME80 2.0 played by Shaun Rylands. Track name "LA skyline 2019. His favorite reverb is NI Reaktor Space reverb.

ME80 2.0 played by Robin Grinnall in Vangelis style.


The ME80 is mostly about aftertouch expression. (and breath-control CC2 is routed to aftertouch). It is a synth for persons that like to play for hours.

Price is 40 dollar.

Sustain2 is a special mode that has release only for last played note(s). It feels like a mono mode.  

There are 2 synthlines with saw/square/sine waveforms. The sine is inserted after filter. Each synthline has its own filter and envelopes. A HPF and LPF filter combined produces a bandpass filter in each synthline.

The effect section has tremolo/chorus, delay and reverb. Wah is a filter with high resonance that can be controlled from a foot controller.

Each synthline has 11 factory presets programmed by Max Fazio. In addition there are 2 user memory slots and 1 panel slot. The instrument is in panel position by default. And panel is the recommended setting when you make presets.

Soundclips with added reverb from Cubase5. ME80 version 1.2. (Played with polyphonic aftertouch keyboard):

Alaska played by Georges Poropat

Hymn played by Georges Poropat

China played by Georges Poropat

The instrument was developed by Gunnar Ekornås, Max Fazio and Georges Poropat over a period of 2 years. Max Fazio has done much research in available data and expired patents. I have discussed every detail of the synth with Max, and he has been the driving force in this project. In many parts of the synth I have just followed his instructions. Georges Poropat is a CS80 owner. He has supplied all the soundfiles I have been asking for and like Max  given response about all parts of the synth.  Max and Georges did all this work for free because it was their dream to see it realized: To preserve it in digital form, and to make the special playing experience available to more people.   Version 2.0 is completely rebuilt and coded by Chris Kerry and use the CK_engine.
