The Prophet X Arrives - Two Demos by Lady Gaia

"First Patch - The very first preset on the Prophet X, 'PX Tease' allowed to sustain before tinkering with sliders and mod wheel"

"Preset #3 'Poly Super' consists solely of filtered oscillators by default, with a noise sample that can be dialed up if desired (not used here)"

This one was spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child.

Moog DFAM: 7-Step Sequencing

Published on Jun 19, 2018 Kris Lennox

"It is often assumed the DFAM can only run 8-note groupings. But it can do anything less than 8. Patching is simple: run the pitch into tempo. This translates to higher pitches being faster/of a shorter duration. So, if you want to omit a step, set the pitch of that step to max and the DFAM will jump by it :)

I've set the pitch of all other steps to be the same (i.e. null value). Pitch is controlled by VCO1. Given all pitches are relatively the same - even if VCO1 changes pitch - the tempo remains consistent. This is a handy trick, as if you try to determine each pitch, the beat pattern will be all over the place.

I overdubbed with a Matrixbrute solo. Very nice & subtle.

DFAM-only audio over on soundcloud:

Given Moog clearly take their stage setting seriously - and insist on placing quasi-philosophical hipster novels with a subtle political undertone in shot, I decided to go for my own setting.

Kierkegaard and Hegel would smack of elitism, so I went for:

1) Pumice stone (unsued)
2) Guidebook for finding dead bodies in Aokigahara Forest (forest visited, but not for purpose of finding bodies. I actually camped in it for a few days. Good story in itself. And this was before the shit American movie)
3) Play-doh scented cologne (used, unsuccessful. But an amusing product nonetheless)

I think I'm getting into the Moog spirit here.

On a serious note - I'm finishing off a tutorial RE the DFAM. Quite long & the accent will likely challenge most. It'll be ready for upload in a day or so.

Weather was terrible today, hence the pensive music. I think I'm actually in love with my Matrixbrute. I hear it speak to me at night. I remember a while back seeing a movie by US artist Corinne May Botz about a mental German woman who was in love with a building. I think this is me, but with the synth.
