LOVE FOR THE DX7 AT LAST_MEMBRANE FITTING VIDEO_PLEASE WATCH TO END_IMPORTANT TIPS AND PITFALLS !
video by Sweet Discrete STUDIO

"POINTS TO MAKE FITTING EVEN BETTER / EASIER ( ADDED AFTER VIDEO MADE )

1. USE OF HAIR DRYER IS HELPFUL FOR REMOVING OLD PANEL - SOFTENS GLUE

2. DON'T PULL TOO HARD OR TRY TO STRETCH THE PANEL

3. WHEN CUTTING BACKING AND CAREFULLY FOLDING PANEL, TRY NOT FOLD TOO HARD AS ON VIDEO, BUT ALSO NOT TO GLUE A RIGID LINE WHERE 2ND HALF OF GLUE IS TO BE PEELED, LEAVE A GAP TO TACK DOWN, OR ELSE CREASE CAN OCCUR.

4. THE WASHERS SUPPLIED ARE 0.8MM HIGH ( IF NEEDED ) , SOME CUSTOMERS SAY POSS HALF THIS, IT'S GOING TO DEPEND ON YOUR SYNTH."

Sweet Discrete Sequential Prophet 5 Demos

1. THE BEST way to hear the NEW 'Sequential Prophet 5 Rev 4'_with Class A, Discrete, STUDER 189 MK II..
Oh yes, she finally arrived. the Prophet 5 landed 17th December 2020 and it's serial number 658.

@ 5.20 the Sounds start but you'll miss consumer opinion and a kid at Christmas ! - Thank you Music Matter & Dave Smith / Sequential.

This is just a quick unbox, and live tweaking of parameters, showing off the filter type differences and the vintage knob.More to follow soon. This video is somewhat experimental and intended as an alternative listen showing off the frequency / harmonics that can be found with noodling about. It is not drenched in FX. The 2nd part of the video failed on the camera, so an unedited chunk at end shows a few preset sounds, but they sound epic...watch this space for other videos soon.

What do you think to the filter differences, pretty subtle in places, huge in others ?

Recorded with this chain:

Sequential Prophet 5 rev 4
Studer 189 MK II mic pre into console master ( not direct out - this will be later )
Apogee Symphony @ 48Khz 32 bit floating

Only console EQ ( slight )
Compression to level
UAD Studer A800
Touch of reverb

Enjoy, stay safe

DSI Sequential Prophet Rev2 - No talking demo of all the internal preset sequences - Part 1/4


video by Andrea Di Lorenzo - Music Lab

"The Dave Smith Instruments Sequential Prophet Rev2 is an update of the Prophet '08 with more possibilities and modulation options in order to get much more complex textures without losing the "classic Prophet sound".

In this demo I will just let you hear what the amazing Dave Smith Instrument's sound designers have made for this amazing synth simply by scrolling through the presets. You will find single layers, split layers (A-B) or stack (dual) layers (A+B).

No additional effects or outboard processing here. 'What you listen is what you get'."

Nermal Eurorack modulated destructive distortion module by Neutral Labs

Neutral Labs Nermal Eurorack modulated destructive distortion Eurorack module demo

video by nyppy

Prototpy demo posted here



via Neutral Labs

Nermal is a destructive distortion Eurorack module that has some unique sonic qualities. There are 3 levels of distortion ranging from subtle saturation to utter destruction. An integrated modulator can switch or even blend between these modes, with the modulation frequency going well into the audio range, in which case, interesting harmonics and artefacts can be created on top of the incoming audio. Nermal rewards experimentation and unexpected sweetspots can often be discovered along the way. In addition to the onboard modulator, there are external modulation options via control voltages (CV) for the most commonly used parameters. LFOs and envelopes work great, but audio signals are accepted as well and make for the most interesting patches.

Nermal is available from May 2021 as a full DIY kit from retailers. It's fairly easy to complete, with a moderate component count and no SMD or other tricky parts.
