Not sure if someone posted this before, but it came to my attention recently that this track bellow from 1993 has intro ambience exactly like in Malstrom (patch ambientChord2).



Just curious now, which hardware synth this was sampled from, since many if not most sounds in Reason VST as far as I know are from real synthesizers.
My music history is quite poor especially in techno genre since this is not my cup of tea but perhaps someone else has more knowledge and can enlighten me a bit.

I can't help with your question, but I just wanted to chime in and say that I love that ambientChord2 sound. I remember using it in a couple tracks way back. I've always thought that it has such a Silent Hill 2 soundtrack vibe.

I used it a lot too back in the day. Very nice ambience.

I think it's either E-mu Emulator II/III or Korg 01/W

Great track and one of my favorite malström patches :) made a track in 2009 just focusing on that! But yeah, it could be a lot of synths. But good guess from cocoazenith. Maybe some propellerhead from the way back can shed some light on it.

Hi m8s, I can't find Ambient Chord 2 (or ambientChord2 for that matter) among the stock patches, where can I find it?

He meant the waveform "Synth: AmbientChord2".
