Initial thoughts on MZ-X500

Recommended Posts


I was under the impression that the X500 has a couple of really good Wurlitzer "emulations" under "60's EP"??

I guess, maybe, they lack a specific "something" that you're looking for?!?


How about a little basic editing to get that "just right" sound that you have in mind?

My guess is that it's all there if you look for it!

I'm reasonably certain that that "growl" and "bite" that I was hoping to find when you dig into the keyboard (likely over 80 or 100 velocity) needs to come from a sample.  I haven't heard it in any of the keyboard samples, but who knows, maybe there's a bass patch or a trombone "blat!" that has a similar growl to it and i can make a hex layer, triggering it at the higher velocities.  Would love to be pointed in the right direction!  Or perhaps a good Wurli sample I can load into the x500.


I'm loving the sounds on this board more and more, but that is one crucial sound I'm missing.  The other parts of the EP / Wurli sound I can get thru this board are fine.
