Demo :: Prophet 8 vs Rev2 (no talking - just patches)

Published on Feb 15, 2018 SOLON Music

"Demo to compare the sound of the Prophet 8 and Rev2 playing the same patches. I used four patches from the factory presets for the Prophet 8 and three of my own patches:

1) Tom Sawyer
2) T8 Strings
3) Ice Planet
4) Analog Bliss
5) SOLON Arp
6) SOLON Swell
7) SOLON Homage to Synthmania

All patches were loaded up to the Rev2 via the Soundtower editor software.

I routed the MIDI from the Prophet 8 keyboard to the Rev2 and recorded the audio of both simultaneously so that the performances were exactly the same.

To hopefully make it intuitive to know which one is being listening to, the audio you are hearing is from the synth which is lit up - the other one is darkened."

Sequential Prophet 5 vs Prophet VS basic waveform comparision

Published on Feb 19, 2018 synthlegends

"In that demo I demonstrate the basic waveforms from the Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 rev. 3 and Prophet VS in comparision.

1. single saw
2. single saw filter
3. single saw resonance
4. two saw tuned
5. two saw detuned
6. two saw detuned (Prophet VS four saw)
7. saw lead filter
8. saw lead resonance
9. pulse and square
10. saw brass
11. saw pad
12. saw bass
13. unison lead

It is a Prophet 5 rev. 3 with curtis filter chips. So, both Prophets have the same filter chips, but the Prophet VS has digital waveforms, whereas the Prophet 5 has analog VCO. The Prophet 5 has only two oscilators, whereas the VS has four oscilators. You also can detune the oscillators and have a lot of modulation possibilites which I didn't demonstrate in this video. But you can really let the VS sound very analogue. Additionaly you have altogehther 128 waveforms (32 user and 98 in ROM).

Of my opinion the Prophet VS is a much more powerful and versatile synth, but the Propeht 5 is a bit warmer sounding. IMO the difference is not so big, also you can let him sound more broad thanks of four oscillators, a mixer envolope and also stereo pan modulation. In this examples I didnt use the onboard chorus of the VS, because the Prophet 5 has none. Also there are no additional effects. It is just pure playing the synhts.

Feel free to subscribe my channel in order to listen to more sound demos of vintage gear and synth legends.

Thanks for watching:-)"

Manny's Polymoog 203a Restoration (by Synthpro)

Published on Feb 19, 2018 synthpro

"Hey guys,

This video is actually for Manny but all are welcome to watch.

This was a very sad polymoog that I brought from the grave to Glory. I show a little slide show of what this unit looked like before the restore, it was a mess and was missing a lot of boards. I had a donor polymoog from a few years back that allowed me to bring this one back to 100% condition.

Thanks for watching!

All the best,

SN 1637 shell with a lot of guts from the later SN 3166.

Poly Evolver Keyboard: Icy Pad

Published on Feb 19, 2018 Sacred Synthesis

"This is the sort of sound a Poly Evolver makes when it first wakes up in the morning. It's natural to the instrument. Turn it on, and this is how it first sings to you. Glass, ice, blue water, cold mist - a magnificent mysterious character.

The pad uses an envelope to modulate the filter which, with this particular digital waveshape, has more than the ordinary effect. I also use the high pass filter to occasionally give the sound a distant nasal quality, as if the PEK were being heard from an cheap pocket radio.

Dave Smith Instruments In The Spotlight With the Prophet-6 and RJ Thompson

You can find the full interview on DSI's website here.

"RJ Thompson has built a name for himself in recent months as one of the UK’s strongest up-and-coming singer-songwriters. His poignant lyrics and deeply-felt songs are set against a colourful (and at times nostalgic) soundscape that goes far beyond modern-day singer-songwriter stereotypes.

RJ’s hard-won success has come through consistence and persistence, having played innumerable grass-roots music venues, pubs, and clubs in his native Northeast England. His breakthrough came when a sound engineer for Live Aid organiser and Ultravox frontman Midge Ure was working at one of RJ’s open mic performances. The engineer liked what he heard and recommended RJ as a support act, leading to more than 30 shows touring the UK and Europe. Support shows with Gabrielle Aplin, Deacon Blue and Jools Holland (including a performance at the Royal Albert Hall) soon followed, as well as several EPs and a live album.

We chatted with RJ about how he’s using the Prophet-6."

Oxypops - Virtual Mini Pops 7

Available at Kontakt Hub

"Oxypops is a virtual simulation of an old drum machine from the 1960s generally known as the Mini Pops 7. It was most famously used by a certain French electronic music composer in the 1970s.

The sounds in Oxypops are 24 Bit resolution samples and up to 16 round-robin variations are included. Noise generated sounds such as the Hi-Hat sound more natural and less “sampled” when variations of the sound are played at random.

All the original rhythms have been accurately reproduced and can be combined together like the real thing.

No doubt you'll want to use some of these rhythms within your song. Well, with Oxypops, you can record a performance and export it as a MIDI file or drag the data right onto a track in your sequencer or DAW ready to play back the sounds as recorded.

Please note - the FULL version of Kontakt 5.7.3 is required (not Kontakt Player)"

Behringer D vs MiniMoog Model D Reissue - Synth Shootout (& the Roland SE-02)

Published on Feb 19, 2018 Marshal Arnold

Do they sound the same??! - MiniMoog Model D - VS - Roland SE-02 video below.

"After finally receiving the Behringer D or Model D that was preordered way way back in June 2017 it finally arrived yesterday! To kick things off I wanted to do a Synth Shootout vs the real deal, a Moog MiniMoog Model D Reissue! I have pulled out the MiniMoog's user manual and configured a few patches on both synthesizers and played some tunes. Please forgive me, I'm not the greatest live synth player, but I thought this might be cool to line these synths up so to speak let folks hear what it sounds live vs the real thing.

For those who don't know what all of the fuss is about, the MiniMoog Model D is one of the most famous synthesizers of all time, it's quite expensive. Recently Moog Music reissued this iconic synth after many years of being out of production for a cost of around $3,500.00 USD. All good right? That had my attention and I was able to pick one up, but then about a year or so ago Uli Behringer made several posts referring to a possible Behringer version of the MiniMoog. Then came some pix of what one might look like and it about broke the internet when the Behringer D might cost around $300.00 USD! That's around 1/10th the cost of the new reissue from Moog. So yeah there was some interest in this thing.

Personally I think for the price the Behringer D does a pretty good job, but please realize that with synthesizers like this you can spend hours dialing in these patches, which I did :) but given more time it may be possible to get these to sound even closer than they do in this video."

Do they sound the same??! - MiniMoog Model D - VS - Roland SE-02

Published on Sep 20, 2017 Marshal Arnold

"Tonight I do a quick comparison with the 1st bank of oscillators on the Moog MiniMoog Model D and the new Roland SE-02. Both synths are 3 Oscillator mono synths. For this shootout I will be going though Triangle, Shark tooth, Saw, Square, Pulse 1 and Pulse 2 on both synths. There is an A|B comparison of the waveforms and then a quick check of the filters while using the Shark tooth.

Let me know what you think.. do they sound the same? which do you prefer?

Thanks for watching!"
