Relating to synths, when you talk about a patch does that mean a singular sound? Or is it a whole group? Im somewaht confused around this issue. thanx

' Referring to a particular sound created on a synthesizer. Comes from the use of patch cords on the original modular synthesizers. '

is how dj-media.com describes it...so presumably its one sound. im the wrong person to answer this really, sitting here in my 60s paisley shirt, burning incense and with my acoustic next to me

found an interesting site on making a patch that sunds like a helicopter, in case anyone fancies trying that...although i cant find the link now...

on a synth a "patch" is a saved sound. This can be made of only one sound or many sounds depending on the synth. hmmm. Alright, say that you've got a multieffects unit, and you have different effects to use, you press the button once and you get a nice reverb, the button again and it changes to a delay and so on... well each of these effects is a patch in the unit.... same thing as the synth. Does that make sense?

i think the "whole group" you're reffering to would be a "bank", which would i think be whole chunk of patches
