i talked about Tap Forms 5 for Mac and iOS just below in the A4 Synthesis Patch sheet
You can download my Database Model here (it’s free too) :
More explanations on this method i use for Sound Synthesis
(Reverse Engineering and Personal Knowledge and Experiment backup)
What is Tap Forms 5 ?
Tap Forms 5 is a database manager with few cool options
What is it for ?
i use it personally on my iMac and iOS device (iCloud Sync) to save a general GRAAL of Sound Synthesis (my patches and favorites i reverse engineered)
What is the file ?
it’s the Form model, it’s the setup of your Tap Forms 5 database and tailored especially for the Analog Four. You can put a screenshot, Rate the patch, record a preview of your patches (only with iOS device mic) you have it all and you can use it in conjunction with the Analog Four Patch sheet i’ve just upload to the Elektronauts file Section. (you can even save your sysex files inside if you want to)
What is look like ?
i know it will not be useful for Advanced users but For people who struggle with Sound Synthesis and Memory (because you can’t Save the Knowledge without practicing a lot, this method is fine you save for ever you personal knowledge in the lightest and efficient way) it’s like a synthesis of the synthesis
How to use it
Of course Tap Forms 5 is a paid app, it’s less expensive on iOS so you could simply buy the iOS version, but you can find it as well on the Apple Store for your iMac. Then import the file. You will have a Sound Synthesis database with a green laboratory bottle. Then you add records to your database. i added a third OSC section with the same setup like the Analog Four to match also in the same database all general retro engineering tasks (You can make it a 4 OSC by duplicate fields) then it become a layering sounds and take 2 voices of your A4… For editing Nature Patch list it’s in Tools > Editing category (then you can add Lead, Pad, String, Drums or whatever)
Tap Forms 5
My Advise then :
it’s like a collection of recipe you keep in Tap Forms 5, then i encourage you to recreate those recipe on each synth you have/use from Hardware to Software. And see where the sound travel will lead you… When you have those recipe you will always (95% of the time) get something you like at the END. Because you only Reverse Engineering Patches you really like, or backup yours…
