Prophet 12 Choir and Sawtooth Solo Patches


Published on Aug 20, 2017 Sacred Synthesis

"Alas, this is from my last batch of Prophet 12 demonstrations, and who knows when I will have a Prophet 12 again? It has been a musical joy to play this masterpiece for the past month.

The first section of music contains the best choir patch I was able to design. I'm sure others could improve on it, but for now, this is my one mediocre contribution to the synthetic choir type sound.

In the second section, the Poly Evolver Keyboard provides a string accompaniment, while the soaring sawtooth solo is played on the Prophet 12. This is an immensely important sound for me, and I wanted to test the Prophet 12's ability with it. As a result, I spent a full two hours making one improvisation after another.

Note that all the Prophet 12 demonstrations I've made have used the two pair of output jacks as a means of producing a six-voice stereo sound, including the monophonic Sawtooth patch.

In my opinion, the P12 makes a superb sawtooth solo patch, and it even surpasses the Poly Evolver Keyboard's version of the same sound. With that, the Prophet 12 has officially passed its Music Room exam, and I hope and expect to own one some time in the future.
