The dx archive is the best of the 3. But those early synths had some bad s/n ratios, and there's noticeable hiss on those waves. Also the looping is hit and miss -- some are really good, and others need improvement. I've done some work removing noise, and reworking loops. So if there's a particular patch you like, ask me to check whether I have a reworked version. I'll send it off to gmaq, who loves spending his income archiving the dx sound.

Hi Jeff,
i saw that you are working on many samples also orchestral. it is a lot of work to tweak, so keep up the good work/ i plan to also test your orchestral re-edited samples/ :)

Hey all,

Since I don't trust facebook and the magazine people to keep these files up in the future I've mirrored it on archive.org and added to Musical Artifacts:

Cheers and happy music making!
