1994 jungle pads?

Post by squatski » Tue Apr 12, 2011 11:21 am

ok I'm guessing this is the the best/only place to ask. Bascially, all the pad'y atmospheric jungle from 94, ltj etc Where are these pads coming from, they're very nice and swirly but I have no idea what was used. Are they just looped samples or from a soundmodule like roland d-50's and stuff. If it was samples what are they sampling? just newage cd's?

JD-800 had loads of atmospheric pad/string patches also a few years later the Korg Trinity

there is lots of akai cd's that have those type of samples "Best Service Dance Mega Jungle/Rave"
has most of those sounds used by peshay , bukem ect..

if your after a new module i would recommend the Roland XV-5080 it is a JD , JV and XV all in one
has the previous patches plus new ones and has 8 expansion slots 4x old SR-JV80 Cards & 4x New SRX Cards

thanks j3d, Don't have space/money for a jd800 (would love one though) but I'll look around for those sample cd's you mentioned. might get that xv module though.

Just have a look at what synths were affordable back then.

I reckon the Korg M1 and the Roland JV synths would have been heavily used.

Yamaha SY85/99. I have a TG500 with sample rom (sy85 in rack), with lots of great pads.
