Best Ambient Synth Shootout #37: Korg Prophecy - Song 2

Published on Aug 28, 2017 Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the second song with the Korg Prophecy. It's a monophonic synthesizer with algorithms for Virtual Analog, Variable Phase Modulation similar to FM synthesis, and physically modeled brass, reed, and plucked string instruments. This song sounds like a scary zombie game soundtrack, nothing you would expect from a Prophecy synth ;-)

I used for the recording the following FX chain which I sparely used this time:
Prophecy - Alesis Ampliton - Elektron Analog Heat - Boss Tera Echo - TC Electronic Mimiq - Pigtronix Echolution 2 Deluxe - DigiTech Polara. The used fx varied depending on the recorded track but this time most tracks were recorded dry.

The signal goes via a small Behringer mixer straight into the pc.

To create the complete song I recorded consecutively several stereo tracks. The final song was then mastered with just a bit EQ and compression on some tracks and some limiting on the master track.

Well, I decided to go back to the basics, but at the same time make something useful for the synth community and do a kind of competition (I like competitions;-). What's my best synth for ambient music :-)"
