DSI Prophet 08 | Wonders a world away | An ambient soundscape

video upload by MIDERA

"Tomorrow, my daughter starts 1st grade. I remember last year how nerve-wracking it was sending her off to school. Would she be okay and meet good friends? Would she do well in class? It was a big change. It's nice to at least feel that there is some comfort in 'returning' to something she knows and feels comfortable doing. I'm at least excited about that.

But we're in an interesting time. Every day she gets panic attacks, crying telling us she 'thinks' she's 'going to puke.' Of course, nothing happens and we have to reassure her that she won't puke. I don't know if it's the amygdala developing and it's just part of growing up. I remember when I was little I would cry in bed, and my parents would come to me and I'd say I'm really sad knowing that some day they would die. They told me that wasn't going to happen... which was obviously a lie. Of course, one of these times our daughter tells us she's going to puke, she probably will.

As for this track - I've just been really pondering what DSI synths to keep. I actually find the P08 to be the best sounding, although the Poly Evolver is a very close equal, despite only 4 voices. I think the P12 is very similar, but it's also lacking something I can't quite put my finger on. I still think it's in the envelopes. Something about them just feel stiff. The P08 and PE seem to deal better with it. But then again, they're all 3 different instruments. I think the PE is theoretically the most interesting and best of them, at the expense of 4 or more voices.

This track used the Strymon Volante and Eventide Blackhole VST.
