Sequential Circuits Prophet 10 Midi Analog Synth

via this auction

"It would be difficult to find a better sounding or functioning Prophet 10 than this one. I have gone to great lengths over the years to make sure this machine was functioning optimally. It has NEVER been shipped the entire time I have owned it. I have always driven it to the synth doctor even if that means being in the car for 12+ hours. Whoever the new owner of this analog monster synth is, will receive it via freight. Professionally over-packed and strapped to a pallet with NO overhang of the box. This way no human can pick it up and drop it or stack anything on top of it.

Casio HT-700 Programmable Digital Synthesizer with Analog Filters

Published on Nov 6, 2016 Patrick Manderson

"This demo contains a number of short MIDI sequences and arpeggios highlighting the filter and wavetable-like oscillators. MIDI sequences were driven by the Yamaha RS7000 Sequencer. Arpeggios were provided by the Novation Bass Station II. One some sequences the Boss Dr-660 played drums. A few pieces of outboard gear was used. Alesis, Behringer & Art Pro Compressors. Delays and reverbs were added from a number of devices: Lexicon MX200, Behringer REV 2496, Zoom MS-CDR70, Digitech RDS 1900.

There is a built-in "stereo" effect using a BBD chorus circuit but it was disabled throughout. I found it a little noisy and a distorted.

The LFO only affects the oscillator. It has depth, delay, speed and 4 wavforms (tri, ramp, reverse ramp, square, random)

It has 31 waveforms for the upper voice and 16 waveforms for the lower voice.

4 part multitimbral - upper voice, lower voice, bass, PCM drums
(8 voices in single mode or 4 voices upper, 3 voices lower, 1 voice bass). The individual drum sounds cannot be triggered over MIDI but the drum patterns to transmit.

One programmable analog filter for the upper voice, another analog filter for the lower voice. The bass voice has no filter.

The resonant NJM2069 filters are very similar to the Korg Poly 800, DW 6000, DW 8000, DSS-1. The DCA and VCF envelopes have fast ADSR and level parameters. However maxing the attack and decay unfortunately isn't slow enough in my opinion. You can hear the filter envelopes at their slowest settings in the Filter Sweeps demo at 10:44.

The TOMITA Memorial Museum : Isao Tomita tribute exhibition at Gakki Fair 2016

Published on Nov 5, 2016 karenevil

"I had a chance to see his Moog modular and other his belongings.
Although I could not see the show because it was so crowded ;-p"

That would be magical to see. I'm curious who currently owns the gear.

Quicco Sound, dot red, and Clavia / Nord got primo spots by the exhibit.

Update: some pics via

Update2: some info from the AH list: "Notice Tomita's CS80 has a CV and Gate ("T" for Trig?) mod for each voice. I also see he signed some of his instruments presumably to prove they were his in the future.

Tomita's main use of the CS80 was on the album "Daphnis et Chloe" (called "Bolero" in the US and "The Ravel Album" in parts of Europe) he also used it on "Grand Canyon" though not as obviously. I've not heard mention of his using the CS-80 as a controller for presumably his modulars. He definitely was always into looking into techniques in speeding up his painstaking multitracking process.

One of the more unusual items is what looks like a small trade show display of high quality synthesizer pots that I guess at some point Tomita was involved in the re-manufacture of. The other, more of digital fans is the Casio Cosmo prototype system. My understanding is Casio wanted to do a high end sampler and Tomita was hired as a consultant and endorser. They eventually did put out the prosumer level FZ-1 but by then other companies had carved up the sampler market."

And: "The CS80 was also used on the 1984 "Dawn Chorus" album (also known as "Canon of the three Stars"), in one of the renditions of the Villa-Lobos pieces (some brass patch)."

You can buy these patches for your SEQUENTIAL PROPHET-6 - read the description for further details (scroll down).

Synthesizer demo of the new Sequential Prophet-6 analog synth from 2015.
The intro sequence was produced via multitrack recording (2 tracks). All sounds were recorded directly without any external effects or treatments. All effects come from the Prophet-6.



AnalogAudio1 released the new Prophet-6 patch bank!

The professional Prophet-6 soundset from AnalogAudio1 features 100 brandnew patches, stored in the 400-499 bank location. This bank is mainly focusing on classic, analog patches associated with big synthesizer classics like the SCI Prophet-5. Designed for creative production and live playing, these sounds will add a warm, analog element to your music.

This bank delivers timeless bread and butter sounds in highest quality, ready to use in your music: all kinds of analog pads, classic analog basslines, cutting leads, evocative arpeggios and modular style effects (all sounds you hear in the video and more).

The AnalogAudio1 patches have been programmed with wheel assignment and aftertouch pressure for further performance expressiveness and tonal effects. Also included is a patch list (PDF), to find the right sounds quickly.

The "ANALOGAUDIO1 PROPHET-6 PATCHBANK" costs 18.99 Euros, payment is via PayPal. If you want to purchase it, send a message to:

ADDAC102 VC FM Radio Demos

"With the ADDAC102 FM Radio you'll be able to tune-in FM radio. Besides the ability of station broadcasts as sound generators for your synthesis, you can also have a lot of fun with the fact that its a great noise generator. Static picks up all kinds of great electromagnetic interference!
It provides controls like tune, volume and seek (all of them controllable through CV input) and there's two outputs for stereo sound.

"Comes with an installed Kenton mod which adds sockets for:
CV - provides Volt per Octave control over the oscillator frequency
Gate - controls when notes play (0 volts = note off / >3 volts = note on)
Filter - controls the cutoff frequency of the low pass filter (from aux out of converter)
Accent - turns on or off the accent feature (0 volts = accent off / >3 volts = accent on)
Slide - turns on or off the slide feature (0 volts = slide off / >3 volts = slide on)

It also comes with the Kenton Pro Solo control box which is the hub in between your DAW and the TB 303. This way you can control the TB 303 from your computer iu ways not possible just using a 303 as stand alone."

"Rob Hubbard & Max Hall's "A New Frontier", performed live on Teenage Engineering Pocket Operators PO-20 and PO-28.

Everything filmed in one take as usual.

Two Pocket Operators were used:
* PO-20: Bass, kick, hats, chords bleeps & pads
* PO-28: Lead sounds, background bleeps

Since this song would need a Bb-note, which isn't available on the PO-28, I emulated this by quickly bending a B - always something :)"
