☆☆KORG DW-8000 | “Analog Pearl” 64 Custom Presets

Categories: , Tags: ,


“Analog Pearl” Soundset is here! 64 custom patches for wonderful vintage machine.

!!Working with Hardware version (sysex file & tape interface) & VST Version from Full Bucket!!

Korg DW-8000 is a great 33 years old vintage synth with deep sound & midi onboard.

While some people thinking that the interface is limited – we made deep vintage strings, warm pads & swells, fat basses, prophet 5 style leads & musical bells and plucks & fx to show that this machine is Deep!

All the sounds in this song made 100% with DW with no external fx – only mixing volumes & a bit limiting on master section.

You will get 64 highly usable presets.

The patch bank comes as an audio file (wav) for the built-in tape interface of your DW-8000/EX-8000. Included instructions how to load the bank. Also included is a patch list, to find the right sounds quickly.

The best soundset I have ever heard! From all the synths I ever heard, taking into account what the DW-8000 is…
Dan L

Nice work, these patches sound great. Keep in mind people, there are many sounds a DW8000 can do well. Like stings, pads, bells, organ sounds, leads, bass…80s kind of stuff, ambient, effects sounds. There’s a reason you don’t see any “acoustic piano” or super sparkly digital patches. I’ve owned a DW8000 for over 30 years, purchased new.

This is a really excellent bank. Is highly recommended. These patches just bring out the finest and best in this machine’s ability to sound warm and huge and fat which it does because of its beautiful analog filters that follow its clever digital oscillators. Its got a timeless sound to it. Many of the patches sound like other instruments as well as its own unique DW8000 sound. Putting some of these sounds into Unison makes them sound breathtaking to say the least.

I can’t tell you how many hours I have sat here designing my S2400 sampler with this playing in the background.. and yes, I bought these off you a long time ago..

The DW-8000 is such a wonderful synth! Extremely versatile but still a very distinct sound character mostly due to its amazingly warm filter. That kind of quality is still hard to find even with all the options we have today. It really shines in the brassy pads section where digital and analog get together for a true best of both worlds combination. And like so often Korg still managed to make it a really fun hands on instrument with just the right amount of parameters to keep programming simple. Perfect!

I just bought these and put them on my DW 8000 and they are amazing, you just want to stand there playing it all day! Easy to install as well thanks to the info supplied in the download 👍🏻
