Video + Audio Demos

Demo Zynthian: 8 tracks 1 synth, by Aven Project

All Tracks are coming simultaneously from the Zynthian. Triggered by MIDI and recorded with some EQ and Compression (DAW).

Multi-timbral Zynthian Demo, by Jofemodo

Using 5 layers assigned to different MIDI channels, like this:

  • CH#1: Vangelis PAD (ZynAddSubFX) => Solo
  • CH#2: Drums (ZaynAddSubFX)
  • CH#3: Analog Bass (ZynAddSubFX)
  • CH#4: Metal Drips (ZynAddSubFX)
  • CH#5: TR808 Drum Machine (LinuxSampler)

The keyboard is used for CH#1 and the Zaquencer for the rest. The audio is digitally recorded using the “record audio option” from the admin menu, so it’s HQ.
