Sequential Prophet 10 | An exploration of the Poly-mod section


MIDERA Prophet 10 posts

"Warning: This video uses FX like reverb that may upset purists. Additionally, the sounds you will hear are exploratory. Please bear that in mind when listening.

So - my first day with the Prophet 10 was frustrating. I just don’t think I understood it for what it was (I thought - wow this doesn’t sound 10x better than my other synths), but mostly because I was making a lot of the same sounds I normally make with it. Not that it does those sounds poorly, but that I just didn’t think that was worth the money per se.

But I suppose one does not buy a Prophet 5/10 purely for its sound, but also it’s looks, build quality, etc. Also - after I published my last video I sat down with it and had way more fun. I was probably mostly in a bad mood.

So today - this is my exploration of the Polymod section. I just sat and messed around with it. Maybe it’s not good. I dunno. Was fun though, going through it.

Towards the end I discovered a loose knob... you can see I end up testing all the knobs - I suppose it’s funny to leave in something like that, the moment of realization. Hopefully it’ll be a simple fix.

Finally, my studio session ended with me dropping a camera battery on my Moog Matriarch and causing a small divot in the overlay. So that was fun..."

Update: See this post for a change of opinion. I actually posted the above because I thought it sounded pretty amazing.
