Prophet '08 Bi-Timbral Soft Ethereal Pad


Published on Nov 4, 2017 Sacred Synthesis

"During this past summer in which I was blessed enough to borrow a DSI Prophet 12 synthesizer, I worked on creating a patch that was an imitation of a sound I had created on my Prophet '08 Keyboard-Module pair. It was a bi-timbral sound consisting of a soft flute coupled with a bright sparkly pair of tones in the upper register. The proper organ term would be "mixtures". While I was designing the patch on the Prophet 12, as is often the case, I took a bit of a turn and starting developing a variation on the original sound. Simply, I added random filter modulation to the mixtures and smoothed out the edges with a bit of Lag.

Now that I'm back working with my Prophet '08 pair, I decided to go full circle and see if I could re-create the Prophet 12 patch on the Prophet '08. This improvisation is the result. It's virtually the same sound, minus the smoothed edges on the Sample and Hold, since the Prophet '08 lacks the lag feature. As with the original Prophet 12 piece, the mixtures are slowly merged in during the middle of the improvisation.

I added a few melodies with a reed-like patch on the other Prophet '08, just to break up the monotony. This Improvisation is only an excuse to demonstrate the Prophet '08's version of the bi-timbral soft ethereal pad.
