Yamaha PSS-140
Small, but lots of potential, with some great FM voices and blippy drum pads.


Yamaha Portasound PSS-140 (1988)

The PSS-140 has a 2 operator FM synth on board with some interesting and unusual sounds.

All sounds you hear in the track were made using the PSS-140; some were run through the very synth-friendly Yamaha SDS CH-10MII chorus pedal. All parts were recorded to a DAW, where compression, EQ, delay and reverb were added as required. Individual drum hits were sampled from the drum pads and processed to allow fresh beats to be built, rather than using the rhythms found on the PSS-140 itself.

This track is on the ALF album...
