The Studio Electronics CODE Synthesizer, With CS80 Filter, Does A Mean ‘Blade Runner’ Brass Sound

Vangelis’ Blade Runner brass sound – one of the iconic sounds of synthesis – is a challenge to get right.

This demo of the Studio Electronics CODE, with a Yamaha CS80 filter, nails it pretty closely though, don’t you think?

The Studio Electronics CODE is a unique semi-modular synth that allows you to choose from several filters, including the classic Roland TB-303, ARP 2600 and Yamaha CS-80. The Yamaha CS-80 is considered by many to be the greatest classic keyboard synthesizer of all time, and has been a big part of Vangelis’ sound for over thirty years.
