DSI Poly Evolver Tracks by Mason Chrysler


1. DSI Poly Evolver Multitrack - Spring Awaits
This is a short track made using only the Dave Smith Instruments / Sequential Poly Evolver Keyboard recorded into Logic Pro X. For this example, no further processing was applied - pure Poly Evolver.
2. Windchimes & Evolvers // Feeding Windchime to a Droning DSI Poly Evolver
This is a single droning patch with some slight improvisation on the Dave Smith Instruments Poly Evolver Keyboard. The external inputs are being fed a recording of some beautiful windchimes. This was recorded into Logic and I slightly rolled off the high end with eq. The video was recorded by myself. The Poly Evolver experiments continue!
3. Poly Evolver Patch 01.23.21 - LFOuterspace01
Here's another fun patch on the PEK that's a little rough around the edges as well. Full patch demo yet to come!
4. Poly Evolver Patch 01.17.21 - CrankTheMagicWheel

5. Not out of the Woods Yet | Multitrack Demo on the DSI/Sequential Poly Evolver
This is a multitrack recording demonstrating sounds from the Dave Smith Instruments / Sequential Poly Evolver. All sounds are from the PEK recorded into Logic Pro X, with the exception of 1 field recording of quiet forest ambience recorded at the scene of the video in the woods (Field recording is not processed by the PEK in this one. Video & audio recorded separately). Some EQ, compression, delay, & reverb were applied in Logic.

Roland Jupiter 6 - Bold sounds from little brother

video by JMPSynth

"Often overshadowed by it's better looking, big brother the Roland Jupiter 8, the Jupiter 6 gives a lot of 'sound for pound' at today's prices for the two. Here is a demo of my favourite programmed sounds recorded direct from the Jupiter 6, with only reverb added from the Strymon Big Sky.

Apologies for poor resolution of a couple of images."

Evolved Vol 3 - Patches 1 to 25 - Sequential Prophet 6

video by GEOSynths

"Out Soon...
It's been almost 2 years since I brought out Evolved Vol 2 for the Sequential Prophet 6 Synthesizer and wasn't sure I'd do another, however Sequential have updated the Prophet 6 with the "Vintage Knob" feature, from the Prophet 5 Rev 4 Synth. After making a 3rd Bank for the Sequential 0B6, it was obvious to do another Bank for the Prophet 6.

In this set I've also focused a little more on making Patches using Osc 2 as a Modulation Source and delving deeper. While there is the odd "Vintage" patch, it's more about getting new Synthesizer sounds."

Oxford Synthesizer Company OSCar

via this auction

"One of the top ten synths ever made, the Oscar is a surprisingly powerful monosynth. Designed by Chris Huggett (of EDP Wasp fame), this has the ability to work as an additive synth as well as a subtractive synth.

It is in good working and cosmetic condition though I can’t verify whether the loading and saving of patches to a cassette works."

Korg MS20 Analogue Mono Synth SN 143015 w/ Japanese Panel Overlay

via this auction

"This is not the mini version and not the recent re-released kit. This is the genuine thing. It has the MK2 filter and also includes the very rare Acetate overlay (text in Japanese) that has protected the front panel so well over the years. This is easy attached/removed, but I have left it on most of the time to provide more protection.

The entire machine is in great condition. Barely any marks on the paintwork. No corrosion, no splits in the end panels and all the keys are clean and undamaged. I bought in Japan many years ago, but have concerted to 230V for the UK mains. Im a professional electronic engineer, so this job has been done properly. Of course it works very nicely and sounds great."
