Sequential's Most Powerful Synth - The Prophet XL - Full Feature Rundown

Published on Jun 21, 2019 Andertons Synths, Keys and Tech

"The Prophet XL marks a brand new world for the Sequential Prophet Series. A 76-key, bi-timbral, 8-voice stereo (16-voice mono) synthesizer combining digital oscillators and high fidelity stereo samples, processed through stereo analog filters and the awesome sound and synthesis capabilities we all love and have come to expect on a DSI synth.

At the heart of the Prophet XL is a new sound engine that powers two simultaneous 16-bit, 48kHz sample-based instruments plus two high-resolution digital oscillators with waveshape modulation — all processed through stereo analog filters.

To start you off DSI have created a 150GB sample library, created with acclaimed sound developers 8Dio. The library includes acoustic and electronic instruments as well as ambient and cinematic effects. In addition the Prophet XL provides you with 50 GB of internal storage space so that you can load your own favourite samples and sample libraries.

In May 2019, sound developer 8Dio released the new T8 add-on pack for Prophet X / Prophet XL. As the name suggests, the samples included are based on the legendary Prophet T8 synthesizer, a flagship all-analog unit that's considered one of Dave Smith's greatest creations. For the new sample pack, 8Dio actually sampled Smith's own vintage Prophet T8 - the real deal!"

Moog / Cordovox CDX / CDX-0652 / White Elephant - vintage synthesizer combo organ

via this auction

Pics of the inside below. Video demo in the listing previously posted here.

From the listing: "Here it is! That elusive beast, the White Elephant! If you don't know, this was produced in the mid 1970s as a joint venture between Moog and Cordovox, an organ manufacturer. The result is a massive instrument that combines an Italian-sounding combo organ and a Moog Satellite synthesizer. Plenty of information out there, so I'll say no more about the history.

This is a project, and one I have no time for. The organ section works well. All of the footage sliders function as they should. All keys on both manuals trigger.

The Moog section does not currently produce sound. Could be something as simple as a loose connector, could be something more. I have no idea. All boards and parts do seem to be present inside and in decent shape."

Animated Circuits Cozmic Oscillator - VCV Rack Tutorial

Published on Jul 25, Omri Cohen

"Well, the time has finally come that I'll make a video about this beautiful module, and what a better occasion than the new release for VCV 1.0

The Cosmic oscillator got a new look and it's now called Cozmic (as in the CZ synth from Casio). In this video, I go through all of its features (00:19), and then I build a patch from scratch (06:39), utilizing some of those features.

"This modular system is a modern dedication to Alan R. Pearlman (AKA ARP). It uses the instrument list structure from the arp 2600.

Instead of making another clone arp 2600, I wanted to make an updated synthesiser, like an Arp 2700 type of project.

So there are many extra functions on this system, not found on the original arp2600. The only Arp 2600 circuit that is an exact clone, is the Analog Switch."

"Yamaha's mid-70's ultra(ish) rare 1st analog monosynth in very good condition."

Not sure if it classifies as ultra rare as you see them come up now and then, but the more time goes on, the rarer it gets of course. At least in working condition.

"Right plastic end piece missing. Single piece which can be replaced.

Also, some cracks to the plastic casing on the left side of the synth. See photos.

These are purely cosmetic issues and the synth is working perfectly!"

"Classic analog synth, reimagined.

The Behringer Odyssey Analog Synthesizer is a reimagined version of an iconic synthesizer, made popular in the late 80s.

A tribute to the classic synthesizer, the Behringer Odyssey captures the very essence that made the original Odyssey-style synths so gamechanging. Powered by dual oscillators, the Odyssey delivers classic analog warmth and grit. It also features a wide range of sound design options including ring modulation, oscillator sync, sample and hold and two envelope generators.

Building on the original design, Behringer have incorporated a sequencer and Klark Teknik FX as well as an LFO and a VCA drive circuit. It also features USB/MIDI connectivity, bringing it into the modern world. It also retains the full-sized keys like the original synth design. Recapture your inspiration today."
