Prophet 2000 Sampler | Fantastic sound! | Demo & Tutorial

video by Espen Kraft

"The Sequential Prophet 2000 sampler from 1985. Followed a few months later by the module version Prophet 2002. 12 bit glorious sound, analog filter and amp and a very difficult mapping structure.

There does exist several software editors for this sampler so you don't HAVE to use the sampler itself to do the editing. However, I get the most satisfaction, inspiration and reward by using the sampler itself. That's why I don't care much for software editors for any synth or gear.
Both the 'Prophet 2012' software and SampleWrench lets' you import/export samples so Google them if that's your thing.

The 'null disk' I use in this tutorial is made following the Paul Wiffen Prophet 200 clinic from Keyboard Magazine Oct' 1987.
Most of the sounds in my demo track is made from sampling some of my synths, like the Juno-106, DX7, and Alpha Juno. The drums are all coming from the Korg KR-55 as I show and I chopped it all up in the 2000 and recorded each drum hit in the DAW and arranged the beat in there.
Finally I sampled the entire song and played with the filter and resonance in the 2000, in real time, while recording that into the DAW, I then found the best parts and put it into the arrangement as you hear it.
Reverb used is Valhalla VintageVerb.
The final mix is done with stems through the SSL SiX with outboard processing and mastering."
