Sequential Prophet VS Synthesizer - eDrumming with Bidule
Published on Mar 7, 2017 BecauseDrumGeek
This is the legendary Sequential Circuits Prophet VS Digital Vector Synthesizer from 1986! added to an e-drum-setup.
This video is meant to show you that it is possible to integrate melody play from a hardware synth (or of course any soft-synth) into your e-drumming by playing only 1 zone (e.g. the bow of a cymbal pad) for each programmed cycle of notes/accords (no matter how many notes in one cycle!...).
A second melody is triggered by a second zone (e.g. the edge of a cymbal pad). It doesn't matter where you have stopped: hiitting the other zone will always launch the first note of the other cycle.
A third zone is meant to stop and reset it all.
Forget about using samples in a sampler tool. Triggering a synthesizer directly is so much more comfortable!!!
And please don't think that it is easy to handle a synth with drum pads: every new hit has to replace the note before...
So you'll need a wizard:
Plogue's Bidule makes it possible!!!
