"Demonstration of how this box doesn't have to be used as a distorted, noise-laden resonant screecher. Bypassing the MiniBrute's Steiner-Parker to use a transistor ladder filter instead, offering Moog-ish warm & creamy vibes."

Prophet X Showcase With J3P0


1. Prophet X Showcase With J3P0 - Les
“Les” — Progressive Soul. This is a mellow and melodic groove built around the warm textures of Prophet X electric piano, tasty B3-style organ, a lush synth pad, and punchy synth brass.

It’s no secret that the Prophet X is Sequential’s most ground-breaking evolution of the Prophet yet. With an ultra-powerful synergy of two simultaneous 16-bit, 48kHz sample-based instruments plus two high-resolution digital oscillators — all processed through analog filters — it covers a vast expanse of sonic and stylistic territory.

To test the limits of what the P-X could do in the hands of one of our most talented artist friends, we asked keyboardist/composer/producer J3PO (Julian Pollack) to stretch it in every direction possible. He responded by unleashing his creativity on five original short pieces, inspired and created entirely by the Prophet X.

We share them with you here — proof that the Prophet X can take you anywhere.
2. Prophet X Showcase With J3P0 - Tribal Feud
'Tribal Feud' — Cinematic. Equal parts tension and release, this piece is a mini master class in film scoring. It features breathy Prophet X choirs, orchestral-style percussion, sparkling acoustic guitars, and silky synth strings.
3. Prophet X Showcase With J3P0 - Home With You
“Home With You” — Americana. The spotlight here is on an expressive, crystalline solo acoustic guitar, complete with hammer-ons and subtle, slide-type embellishments. This is the Prophet X at its most expressive, with its tonal richness and nuance on full display.
4. Prophet X Showcase With J3P0 - Neon Skies
“Neon Skies” — Synthwave. With a moody 80’s-style cinematic vibe, this piece showcases powerful Prophet X drums, thick synth bass, a swirling synth pad, and an anthemic synth lead.
5. Prophet X Showcase With J3P0 - Thunder
“Thunder” — Experimental Trap. A moody showcase of synth build-ups and breakdowns. On display here are sizzling Prophet X electronic drums, tuned percussion, atmospheric pads, and soaring synth leads.

Roland JU-06 Boutique Series Digital Synthesizer Sound Module

via this auction

Additional Switched On Listings

"This Roland JU-06 is fully functional and in excellent condition. Includes original box. The limited-edition JU-06 is an authentic recreation of the iconic JUNO-106 synthesizer. Sometimes described as one of the last great synths of the analog era, the JUNO-106 became a favorite thanks to its warm sounds and instant sound-shaping ability. The new 4-voice JU-06 module continues this approach, with 23 parameters controllable via the front panel and that classic JUNO sound – complete with the much-loved JUNO chorus effect. There are some new additions too, including a faster LFO and continuously variable hi-pass filter (HPF). You can even slide the JU-06 into the optional K-25m keyboard unit for a self-contained, go-anywhere synth experience."

via this auction

Additional Switched On Listings

"This DW-8000 is fully functional and in great condition. The Korg DW-8000 is a digital synth made by Korg from 1985-87. Sound is digitally generated from the DWGS (Digital Waveform Generator System) The DW-8000 has 8 voice polyphony in two modes, or one monophonic mode with all eight voices stacked. The analog VCF resonant filter and VCA both have independent ADBSSR envelopes. Parameters can be altered in real time via a single programmable slider. There are 64 presets that can be reprogrammed by the user, a velocity sensitive keyboard with programmable aftertouch, auto-bend, a simple arpeggiator and a digital delay unit. The digital delay was astonishingly good for the time, offering up to 512ms delay, phasing, flanging, chorusing and other time based effects. Both the Arpeggiator, Auto-Bend and Digital Delay make this synth an inspiring and great sounding machine to use."

"A classic synth for your consideration. Just back from a full servicing this month at Nightlife Electronics in Vancouver, BC (will provide paperwork). It is fully functional, calibrated, and has a clean bill of health. There is some slight speckling above the "BANK" section (pictured), but aside from that this piece is super clean. One pot was replaced, as well as one filter switch button. Great investment or studio piece.

Dream Machine/The Beast: Ex Bar-Kays Memorymoog SN 1493

via this auction

"This special and wonderful Memorymoog was a driving force behind the distinctive Bar-Kays super-funk sound, both on the road and in their recording sessions at Ardent Studios in Memphis.

Ownership History
When the music industry started going crazy for all things digital and the Fairlight Audio Workstation was all the rage, the ownership of this Moog went from the Bar-Kays to Ardent Studios, and then to me in 1985. It then continued on in recording sessions at Ardent, then from there to my Memphis home studio, and in the early 90s went into temperature controlled storage at my house, being occasionally set up and played over the past couple decades.

Now Fully Reconditioned
Thoroughly and meticulously reconditioned by the renowned analog synth experts at British Audio in Nashville, this Moog plays as new, right down to the newly felted key stops. The 100% original cabinet has not been altered in any way; the dings and scratches were all well-earned in its early Bar-Kays days, and I wouldn't want to do away with a single nick.
Model 345A w/Hold & Arpeggiator Functions
S/N 1493

Newly reconditioned to 100% as-new in all functions & operation, including quick 6 oscillator auto tuning from cold start, correct/consistent function and feel on all keys, all buttons, dials & wheels
Accurate, bright digital readouts

Owners Manual in excellent condition
Memorymoog presets cassette for downloading all factory sounds
120 VAC power cord"
