Sorry for the bump :)

I want to add to my post, the preset apo:C3/M12 ESI with low pass filter is a better match for Ace of Base's Never Gonna Say I'm Sorry, Just 'N' Image and Dr. Sun synth pads.



With greatest respect to Rod (he is incredibly talented!) for the previous message and for showing the way, here is a way to have this preset:

This sound can be found on E-MU Keys Emulator X. Here is a great tutorial for achieving successful installation for E-MU Emulator X and obtaining the necessary libraries:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqGjOjc4S5g&ab_channel=YanAnselmo

We need to get the following:
E-Mu Emulator X (the setup is available on the YouTube Video Desc.
E-Mu Experience (this allows us to have the necessary directory structure)
Vintage Keys Sound Bank

All these three is explained in detail on the YouTube link

But to obtain the sound, after following each step, you have to choose apo: CP70/M12. This preset has both Yamaha Acoustic Piano (hence the apo name) and the Matrix Strings. At this point go to "Voices and Zones" section of apo:CP70/M12.

Choose Matrix String C4 as solo and mute all other instruments

Then apply a low pass filter to this (as an example I applied FL Studio Love Filter - Low Pass 2 preset)

Hope this helps.

I finally found a Vintage Keys (Plus) and uploaded in it the original .syx "new" presets from the original Vintage Keys.
Definitely the synth used by Cheiron for all the mellotron and violin sounds (particularly the intro of N'Sync's Bye Bye).
But the most used preset of this synth by the Cheiron team is definitely the String Wheel pad which can be heard in a lot of 1994-1999 productions (Papa Dee "The First Cut Is The Deepest", Ace Of Base "Lucky Love", Backstreet Boys "IWITW"...) and still in some in 2000's (Britney "3")

For those who are interested in, i sampled every single note of this preset (48/24bits) C0-C7 and made an .exs patch for Logic Pro.

And a very fast remake of Never Gonna Say I'm Sorry with the preset :

Thanks for sharing. Tano has proven to be an expert on this subject, see his remakes at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfmBYDD8bv1DmtCS_Cxxdyg. What do u think Tano, is this actually what Cheiron used on those productions?

Hi, I'm Luke and I'm sitting on my throne! Oh, and have you noticed that Denniz PoP songs are extremely hooky?

Uuuuh thanks a lot 😍😍😍 but I don’t use logic 😭😭 I already used the one posted in this board but samples were short. Is there any way to have the original and open this syx file on VSTs?

Samples can't be short, they are 10 seconds long and looped !
I converted .exs into .nki to use in Kontakt 5 or 6.
You can download patch and samples here :
