Dream Weeper | Sequential Prophet 10 and Rhodes Mark I Piano somber ambient

video by MIDERA

"The Prophet 10 really does start to shine when mixed with FX. Here, I use the Boss MD500 (only stereo tremolo active) going through (in stereo) to the Strymon DIG. I think this is a fantastic pairing. The Prophet just really sounds great when stereo FX are used. I had been missing my REV2 because I came up with some great pad sounds that I just didn't think I could replicate... but it wasn't the REV2 that was so great, it was the implementation of the FX (which, admittedly were internal mixed with reverb). Of course, the REV2 was good and because it used internal FX that was indeed part of the sound - so the REV2 is great. My issue with it was the filter just didn't sound that great to me and the oscillator bleed was really too much for me (listening back, I think I overestimated its annoyance). But I do kinda want that synth back. But I have the Matrix 1000 which I think is a bit better.

Now - what really needs to be said about the Rhodes piano? It's just awesome. The sound from the Rhodes goes through the Retro Flyer Preamp and then into the Strymon El Capistan and then to the Eventide Space.

Sadly - one of the angles of video was overblown - whoops. I noticed it while I was filming, but I just wasn't going to stop recording. So - enjoy an overblown video.
