Prophet-5 Analogue Rennaisance Downgrade


"Demonstration of the new Filterchip Downgrade of Analogue Renaissance which uses new created SSI Filter Chips from Dave Rossum to Downgrade the Rev. 3 to the former Rev. 1 and 2 Filter Design.

For this mod you have to replace the CEM Filter Chips with a small board of 5 SSI Filter Chips. Additionally there is also a 12 dB Filter and Q-Compensation to compensate the loss of volume in high resonance sounds.

After modding the Rev. 3 gets much, much loader; I had to decrease the volume of the oscillators in the mixer.

I let install the mod through my tech, because the old sockets must be desoldered in my opinion, otherwise you get contact problems.

In this Prophet 5 I didn't do the calibration of the filter chips, because I was not sure if I want to go back to my old CEM Filter chips. But meanwhile I won't go back and I also have to calibrate the unit.

I like the mod very much and the variation of sounds increase. The Q-Comp ist a really great feature which allows making really ultra fat resonance sounds, like Tom Sawyer Filter sweeps and other Oberheimesque Sounds (also thanks to the 12-Pole Filter).

The sound goes directly to the audio interface without any mastering, FX or equalizer.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me."
