CHROMA POLARIS vs PROPHET 600: Live Shoot-out of these Analog Synth Titans!

video upload by

"2 Voltage-controlled Oscillators per voice is expensive, especially in the vintage market! The two cheapest analog polysynths you can get from the 80's with 2 VCO's are the Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 and the rare Fender Chroma Polaris. In this livestream we'll compare the two and see which reigns supreme."

"Perfectly working Rev 2 SSM Prophet 5 with Kenton Midi; Upgraded, Serviced, Calibrated. Includes 1 hard to find SSM 2030 chip. This Prophet has been cared for over it's life, including keybed rebushing, quiet Toroidal Transformer upgrade and power supply rebuild, full recap, battery, Kenton Midi. The kenton midi makes playing and controlling it a breeze w/ CC filter and resonance control, volume, pitch bend and mod wheel, sustain. A really great version of the Rev 2 Prophet 5 - nothing sounds like them."

Vintage Dual Manual Sequential Prophet 10 Demo 2

video upload by Randy Piscione

"Another demo, this time a bit more involved. Patches are my own, playing is a little rough as usual, all sounds are from the Prophet except the drums. Actual tunes are not lifts, just for demo purposes. I also tried to duplicate a pair of famous bass sounds.

0:00 Chameleon
1:49 Bells jam
2:55 Birdland - I did this one for the FVS demo, figured I'd see how it turns out on the Prophet. This was interesting, I think the bass is better on the Prophet but the FVS certainly does nice chords.
3:48 Blues jam - two slightly different organ patches, using Double mode to combine them.
5:57 Nice to nuts - for the last 6 minutes, I played the controls live on both manuals, ending up with spaceships, machines, room tones and whatever else comes out of two Prophets."

Sequential Circuits Pro-One SN 9661 w/ Updated Keybed

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.

via this auction

"The backstory with this instrument is that I bought it used in Feb. 2020, replaced the keybed with the drop in replacement from Techsmechs, and then had it tuned and calibrated by Matt at Futura Electronics. I then traded it to a friend who didn't use it much for the past couple years. Then I got it back over this past summer.

Cosmetically, it's particularly nice and I'd even say a cut above the rest. Very few signs of use at all. This is a higher serial number, made in September of 1983, hence why I had to replace the old membrane keyboard.

Functionally, it's working great and it sounds beautiful. Just give it 30+ minutes to fully warm up just like any other vintage analog synth. All ins and outs are working as they should. Sold AS-IS, as described in vintage working order."

First quick Vintage Sequential Prophet 10 Demo

video upload by Randy Piscione

"I have traded the Oberheim FVS for a Vintage Sequential Dual Manual Prophet 10. As cool as the Oberheim is, and as much as I loved the sound, the P10 is much more of a player's instrument. This is just a quick first bit of noodling, both patches are mine."

Roland Jupiter-8 for Tyler

video upload by foleytronics fx repair

"Here is a demo of the Roland Jupiter-8 with a CR-78 and SRE-555 chorus echo. This JP8 had an interesting problem that many units with Encore MIDI have: an annoying click sound when moving any of the programmable sliders. It has since been solved and repaired and sounds lovely as ever!"

Seuential Circuits TOM with Tauntek TOM16 extansion

video upload by ohm_studi_ohm

"The Sequential TOM was already a great drum machine at the time it was released, with a lot of nice features, especially regarding MIDI implementation. You could play, record, synchronise the machine over MIDI and adjust sample direction, volume, pitch and pan of every sample either on the device or over MIDI, in real time and for every step ! That gives you lots of possible variations. Not many drum machines could could achive that at the time.

And now thanx to another amazing engineering by Tauntek you can have 16 kits in the instrument at all time, without the need to switch cartridges. And even more important: you can swap the internal kit samples as well as the cartridge ones, enabling for any combination of 2 kits you wish. This is impossible with cartridges or other upgrade available, and only possible thanx to Tauntek firmware. And that makes a huge difference. Note that you can only have 15 sounds at hand not 16. The 8th pad from the cartridge layer is always a trigger out message and won't trigger a sound, even if the loade kit has 8 sounds.

You can even make your own kits if you have access to an Eprom programmer.
Check Tauntek dedicated page for more info (
This unit also had its RAM maxed out, expanding the internal 8k to 32k and thus bringing the stock 2,300 notes capacity to a whopping 10,400. And believe me you run very quickly out of memory if you make some complex patterns with different variations.

So here is the demo, i didn't make patterns demos for each of the 16 kits but you'll get the idea, and I didn't go too deep into external MIDI playing/programming but bare in mind you can record instrument tuning pitch, volume, pan and sample direction (reverse) for every instrument on every step.

Here is the timeline:
00:00 stock kit patterns
02:28 TR808 kit patterns
03:56 TR909 kit patterns
05:08 TR606 kit patterns
06:25 CR78 kit patterns
07:17 sound preview of all the kits included in the box
11:18 quick realtime patterns programming using external pads

list of the kits included in the TOM16:
SCI Internal
SCI Basic Percussion
SCI Contemporary
SCI Latin Percussion
SCI Special Effects
Drumware Rock Drums
Drumware Techno Drums
Drumware Orchestral
Drumware Percussion 3
Drumware Hippefex
