Sonic LAB: Plogue Chipsynth OPS7 - Forensic DX7 Recreation

Bit for Bit copy - how does it fare?      16/12/21

The Plogue Chipsynth OPS7 - is a bit level copy of the original DX-7 - warts and all. They are really into digital accuracy and emulation as with the others in the ChipSynth range. They've included the bugs, the envelope stepping and operator maths, as well as the insane compander and filtering.

They say:

This includes exact envelope stepping patterns that vary note-to-note, every facet of the convoluted pitch calculation, and absolutely identical operator math for each algorithm down to the bit.

The analog side of the original keyboards and modules is also recreated with lavish attention to detail: you want the unique crunchiness of the original DAC?

 We know there's a certain something about an original DX-7 and Owen Palmer is a man who appreciates such detail, so he's having a look at this new plug-in for us.

If you want to see the level of detail they go into, we recommend this video:
