Sequential Prophet 6 - Divinity Vol.1 - Custom Patches 000 to 049 (of 100)

video upload by Orano Music

"This is the First of two demo Reels showcasing the first 50 Sounds from Divinity Volume.1

As always I aim to create great playable sounds easily translatable to your own Productions or for Live use. I have created basses, arps, leads, pads and my usual styled analog keys too.

The Prophet 6 deserves the commonly stated "best synth Sequential have ever made" it is truly a lovely synth, full of warmth and character. The Poly Mod section really brings the synth alive along with great oscillators.

Patches are available now at

Thanks for checking them out.

"STUDIO ELECTRONICS OMEGA 2 - Custom Built in Red Metallic Omega 8 Chassis.

This studio ANALOG MONSTER rack synth has been babied in my studio with very little use (unfortunately). Original owner I had this custom built with a special anodized metallic RED finish in the larger OMEGA 8 chassis for future upgrade which I never did. BLUE Led screen and Red lite-up buttons."

Access Microwave Hardware Programmer SN B19500196

via this auction

"Access made these hardware programmers in the mid 90's to program the Waldorf Microwave Mk 1.

The synth is not included, this is only for the programmer and it can only be used to program the Microwave mk 1 (A or B) where you connect your midi into the programmer then the programmer goes into the Microwave.

The condition of the unit is fantastic, not a mark on it and it all functions correctly.

Complete with power supply."

Mystics Vol 1 - DSI Prophet 08/REV 2 - Patches 1 to 16 (Dry + FX Presets)

video upload by GEOSynths

"Mystics Vol 1 contain 64 New Patches for the venerable DSI Prophet 08. I used to have one years ago and sold it, but had the opportunity recently to pick one up on Ebay, not to make Patches, just...'cause! Even though I have a Prophet Rev 2 and have made 2 Banks for it, there was something about the Prophet 08 that got me hooked on making new Sounds for it....Here they are....Mystics Vol 1.

Of course, there are no FX onboard, however I have previously use 2 Free Plug-Ins (below) and have made 64 FX Presets for each to match up with each Patch. I have also demonstrated the Patches both Dry and with the FX.

1 - Blue Cat Audio Chorus
2. Valhalla Supermassive

All you need to do is set up an Insert in your DAW, add the chorus in Slot 1 and in Slot 2, Supermassive. Then just match up the Preset Numbers/Names...That's it, levels are all done!

Here are the first 16 Patches with 3 more Videos to come.

Sequential Prophet 5 & Prophet 6 review | @premikjolly | Vivin Kuruvilla

video upload by ProMusicals

"In these video series, they show you in-depth on the award-winning sequential Prophet 5 & Prophet 6 analog synthesizers

The new Prophet-5 is Dave Smith’s timely return to the analog poly synth that changed the world. It’s “the best of all Prophet-5s” as Dave puts it because it embodies all three revisions of the legendary synth — Rev1, Rev2, and Rev3 — through the use of genuine Curtis analog VCOs and filters (as in the Rev3) as well as new 2140 low-pass filters designed by Dave Rossum, like the 2040 filters he designed in the original Rev1 and Rev2. A Rev switch lets you choose between the two filter designs. It also adjusts the Filter Envelope’s shape and response to match the original Prophet Rev 1/2 or Rev 3 respectively.

The Prophet-6 is Dave Smith’s tribute to the poly synth that started it all—the Sequential Prophet-5. But it’s not simply a reissue of a classic. Rather, as Dave puts it, “It’s the result of our effort to build the most awesome-sounding, modern analog poly synth possible.” The Prophet-6 takes the best qualities of the original Prophet-5—true voltage-controlled oscillators, filters, and amplifiers—and adds enhancements such as studio-quality effects, a polyphonic step sequencer, an arpeggiator, and more. The result is pure, unadulterated analog tone with the stability and reliability of a state-of-the-art modern synth."

Michelle Moog-Koussa: Remembering Herb

An excerpt:

"I would visit Herb and his wonderful wife Nancy every time I was in New York City, which allowed Herb and me to take long walks around their neighborhood. During those walks he would talk about Dad, the early days of pioneering the Moog synthesizer, about the darker period when Dad had to sell the business, the couple of times that Herb and Dad had significant disagreements, and the years Herb served as marketing director, and then sales director for Moog Music in Buffalo, in the period after Dad had left the company."

Introducing the Arithmophone

video upload by Arithmophone

"The Arithmophone is a new tool for exploring musical intervals from your computer, tablet or phone. It is a musical keyboard for touchscreen devices, you can play it directly from your browser using the built-in sounds or connect it to other instruments via MIDI.

To play the Arithmophone directly from your browser:

For more details and for using the MIDI version:"

"The Arithmophone is a new kind of musical keyboard, a rethinking of the way we interact with electronic music instruments. It provides easy access to many familiar and unfamiliar notes in colourful two-dimensional layouts and is a tool for exploring different kinds of tuning schemes, both just and tempered.

It currently exists in two forms:

The Arithmophone web app is a self-contained instrument that you can play from your computer, tablet or phone. It works best on touchscreen devices in landscape orientation (try an iPad or something of similar size if possible: the bigger the screen, the easier it is to play the keyboards).

The Arithmophone MIDI is a keyboard interface for controlling synthesizers. If you work with a DAW and software instruments, or if you have a hardware synthesizer you’d like to control through your (touchscreen) computer, this might be interesting for you.

Future ambitions for the Arithmophone project include a native iPad app with MIDI output as well as a hardware prototype.

I’ve made a manual that provides more details about the Arithmophone. I’ve also made an interactive guide to the building blocks of melody and harmony that explains some of the basic principles behind the Arithmophone in an accessible way."

Alesis A6 Andromeda 61-Key Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer w/ Tuning Issues

via this auction

"All knobs, buttons, keys, wheels, ribbon, and screen etc. work great. This A6 has a voice issue with voice #6 and on occasion voice #1 (if you get trigger happy with autotune). The error shown in both cases says "too high" but the voices seem to be working if you wish to ignore the error and enable all voices. If you use autotune, Voice 6 will fail however you can go through the rest of the manual tuning features that normally follow osc tune and put it to use. The tuning fail of voice #1 is intermittant if you use autotune frequently and is easily recreated if you jump the gun tuning cold it but again works fine and it does not disable. When you let the synth warm up for a solid amount of time (30 mins) it's in it's prime state. I rarely ever use the autotune, instead if tuning is off just temporarily enable the other built in temp-correction and background tuning intermittently if I feel the need to align the tuning but then turn them all off again. This is an analog dream synth and works and sounds great, use it as a 15 or 14 voice (at it’s worst) if you play a gig with temp fluctuations and want to use autotune all night but everything works well over multi hour sessions. I've attached images from a few months ago when I went through all of the tuning, and the images were taken in the sunlight to highlight any imperfections around the chassis. It has the latest firmware installed and is ready for a new owner."

Stoicism //SIG+/XPO/QPAS/Mimeophon//

video upload by Aleatoric Machine

"A self-playing Eurorack modular synthesizer patch featuring Make Noise’s XPO, QPAS & Mimeophon, and Stochastic Instruments’ Stochastic Inspiration Generator (SIG+). Plus many more modules described below.

Everything you hear in this is coming from a single monophonic sequence from the SIG+ and a single Make Noise XPO. I’m pretty amazed by how much variety of tone and texture can come from this single oscillator, all at the same time. The different waveform outputs are each running through their own VCAs, filters, triggers, and effects, but the melodic content is all the same. I’ll go through the sequencing in a minute, but first I’m going to focus on the audio signal paths.

Overall, the XPO’s L & R modulation are controlled by a triangle LFO coming from Acid Rain’s Maestro.

The first output is the stereo square wave, which goes through QPAS and Mimeophon, then into the mixer. QPAS’s L & R rotation and Q are modulated by two different smooth random waves from ALM’s Pamela’s Pro Workout. Mimeophon’s repeats are modulated by a smooth random wave coming from Maestro. This voice is triggered by a bouncing ball coming from Make Noise’s Maths.

The second output is the mono triangle wave, which first goes through an Intellijel 1U VCA, then uses Intellijel’s 1U pedal I/O to go through a Chase Bliss Mood (repeats tuned up a 5th) and Chase Bliss Dark World, then into the mixer. This voice is triggered by another bouncing ball from another Maths.

The third output is the mono sawtooth wave, which goes through channel one of a Make Noise ModDemix, an Intellijel Morgasmatron (with panning controlled by separate LFOs going to the L & R FM1 inputs - LFO 1 coming from Mutable Instruments’ Tides and LFO 2 coming from Intellijel’s Rubicon 2), then a Happy Nerding FX Aid XL running a flanger algorithm, then into the mixer. This voice is triggered by a repetitive Euclidian rhythm coming from Acid Rain Constellation and Doepfer Dual ADSR.

The last output is the spike wave going through channel two of the ModDemix, a Doepfer Multimode VCF, and Strymon’s Magneto in shift mode, then into the mixer. Magneto’s repeats are modulated by another smooth random wave coming from Maestro. This voice is triggered by a slower Euclidean rhythm coming from Constellation and Make Noise’s Contour.

Each voice goes into Doepfer’s VC Stereo Mixer, which has a built in VCA on each channel. The level of each voice is independently controlled by a separate smooth random wave from Pam, so the mix is constantly evolving. The voltages coming from Pam are further slewed by Mutable Instruments’ Stages, since the smooth random wave from Pam can still have some sharp edges. Then the whole mix goes through a 2HP Verb, with the reverb mix modulated by another smooth random wave from Pam, and finally through Endorphines’ Golden Master, which connects directly to the Intellijel 7U Performance Case’s built in audio outputs.

Now for the melodic content and harmonic structure. This is all driven by Stochastic Instruments’ Stochastic Inspiration Generator (my first patch with it!). This is an incredible module. I won’t go into everything it does, as there are already a couple very helpful videos out there on that, but suffice it to say that it lives up to its name! I’m using multiple channels, each with its own tonality, then cycling through those via an ALM Boss Bow Two switch to determine which channel will control the v/oct pitch of the XPO. The Boss Bow’s channel is control by a sequence coming from another Stages. Channel one is just a low C, to establish the primary key. Channel two randomly selects pitches from a C major chord, with low C in the bass. Channel three selects pitches from an F minor chord, with an occasional 2nd and 4th and a low F in the bass. Channel 4 selects pitches from a D flat major chord, with an occasional 6th and a low D flat in the bass.

I’m not sure if this is indeterminate enough to be considered generative, since the harmonic content is fairly structured, even if the melody, rhythm, and balance of the parts are all random. It’s more, well, aleatoric. I hope you enjoy it (although I realize than if you are into this sort of thing, you are born of a special breed!)."
