Sonic Charge releases Cyclone                                 31st December 2013

Sonic Charge has announced the release of Cyclone, a free software emulation of the Yamaha TX16W sampler from 1988.

Cyclone is a true low-level hardware emulator. It simulates all the important circuits of the Yamaha TX16W, including the main 68000 CPU, the properietary Yamaha DSP circuits, the 12-bit sample memory and the 400kHz non-linear DACs. Cyclone not only looks like a real TX16W, it sounds like a real TX16W and it runs the exact same software as a real TX16W.

That last sentence is worth elaborating on. We have not merely created a new virtual instrument with a vintage sound, neither is Cyclone an updated version of Typhoon. Cyclone features a full 68000 emulator that runs the exact same version of Typhoon that was released 14 years ago. This implies that using Cyclone will require a bit more effort than your average modern virtual instrument. But this can also be a very rewarding experience. Regard Cyclone as a time travel portal to an era from the past. The era of the monster dinosaur samplers.

To get started with Cyclone I strongly suggest reading the FAQ while downloading the installer from our download page. Sounds for the TX16W can be found in various corners of the internet (the installers do not include any additional sounds besides the demo sounds for Typhoon 2000). We intend to collect links and files in this forum post

Cyclone for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is a free download.
