Prophet 5 Shootout: Softube, Repro-5, Arturia vs a Prophet 5 Rev4

video upload by Starsky Carr

"Get ready for a geekfeist. Softube Model 80 and U-He Repro-5 are the two main contenders for the Prophet 5 Rev3 plugin crown, while the Arturia Prophet 5V is carrying the flag for the rarer Prophet 5 Rev 2. There are minor differences in the 2 models - the filter and envelope responses are different, but they all sound like Prophets.

BUT... which is best for you. They all do slightly different things and approach emulations in their own way."

Softube Model 80 - Sound Bank '79

video upload by Polydata

"Drawing from the earliest days of polyphonic synthesizers, Sound Bank ‘79 for Softube Model 80 finds its inspiration in synthesizer music found in documentaries and library music from the late 70’s and early 80’s.

A bank comprising 30 patches for instant inspiration. The goal was to squeeze as much vintage analog juice out of this plug-in as possible, primarily working within the constraints of the original Sequential Circuits Prophet-5. Part of the magic of the Prophet-5 design was it's clear workflow, enabling you to get a wide array of sounds quickly. I'm happy to say that Softube have stayed faithful to this simplicity that has helped this instrument to endure all these years.

Sound Bank '79 is a series of vintage tones for different synths and plug-ins, so look out for future releases. Recorded completely dry with no external effects or processing.

The industry-defining five-voice polyphonic synth from 1980
Expertly modeled for the authentic sound, interactions, and performance of the original unit
Two versions included: the instrument and five modules for Modular

It's not overstating things to say that this five-voice synthesizer changed the future. The first synthesizer with a digital microprocessor to control the analog polyphonic synth engine and store sounds, it has graced hits from superstars such as Michael Jackson, Madonna, Peter Gabriel, Radiohead, The Cars, and countless others.

With great reverence and proven modeling expertise, we captured every detail of this storied synth's circuit, interactions, and factory presets. The result is a revelation: the authentic sound, feel, and performance of an industry-defining instrument perfected for modern production. Like a prophecy from 1980 fulfilled, so cometh Model 80 Five Voice Synthesizer.

And a user video by Starsky Carr:

Softube Model 80 // Sounds like a Prophet 5 to me.

video upload by Starsky Carr

"Softube Model 80 put up against a Prophet 5 Rev 4. The Model 80 appears to be based on the Prophet 5 Rev 3 - there are a couple of minor things that the Rev3 does compared to the Rev4 .. so minor I'm having difficulty remembering as I write this! This is an amazing emulation."

Allinaire Strakt SeenSound - Live Generative Video, Eurorack & Moog Minitaur

video upload by Allinaire

"Live at SeenSound / Vitalise Crosspollination gig, Petersham (Sydney) on 23rd April 2022
(Thanks to Mark Pedersen & Brigid Burke - & )

Allinaire performing as 1/2 of the duo ‘Strakt’ - A live and extended performance mix of the track ‘292.12 Induced psychotic disorder, with hallucinations’ from the album ‘Diagnoses’, available on Blurred.Vision.

‘Strakt’ is a collaboration between Fremantle based musician and producer -1 and Sydney based Allinaire.

Allinaire is playing live audio and generating live video simultaneously via a hacked and customised Max-for-Live video patch. All the geometric video is created live in response to the audio and various modulation. Additional prepared and added video (madness head shots) includes Vector Rescanning by Allinaire using an LZX system and an Oscilloscope.
Live video mixing and additional video on the day by VJ ATMM (includes partial treated excerpts of the short ‘Forever’ by Mitch Mcglocklin which uses LIDAR scanning tech)

Audio is produced using a eurorack system including a Pittsburgh Lifeforms primary Oscillator sequenced via the Mac through an Expert Sleepers ES-9, also featuring a Make Noise Morphagene and other modules. Baseline is the Moog Minitaur. Various other sounds and percussion via Mac Ableton devices manipulated and mixed by Midi controllers Softube Console 1 Fader and the Faderfox UC4.

I've been experimenting over the years with many types of modular and hardware setups for live performance - this is a first 'proof of concept' Live set utilising a Laptop (often controversial!) with outboard dedicated gear to handle audio and live video simultaneously which maintains the ability to be creative in structure, composition and live timbre manipulation - hopefully also allowing for the happy accidents that occur when playing live, as well as the adrenaline and fear of total collapse to keep it honest :-)"

Softube Model 82 vs Roland SH101// The Definitive Comparison
video upload by Starsky Carr

"A comparison of the Softube Model 82 vs Roland SH101 vintage synth. One is a 40 years old analog hardware synth and the other is a modern digital emulation .. so they're unlikely to sound identical (obviously) but does the emulation have the same character? \

Does it feel like the original? does it act like the original? would you know it was an emulation if you could only play then knobs and listen to the output? ... short answer... no, you'd never know :)"

Five Things You Can Do With Model 82!

video upload by Alex Ball

"A look at the new soft synth Model 82 from Softube.

In this video we explore five things you can do with Model 82 (chim-chim-cheroo). It's surprising what's possible with just one oscillator, filter, amp, envelope and LFO.

0:00 Intro
1:05 Play it live
2:33 Use it as a drum machine
4:11 Get Dirty
5:16 Sequences & Arpeggios
6:33 Go Modular"

• A ’90s techno idol accurately emulated for faithful sound and feelings

• The authentically inspiring sequencer and arpeggiator of the up-all-night original

• Two versions included: the instrument and five modules for Modular

The raw sound of the original hardware is the stuff of dance dreams. But the unique and inspiring sequencer and arpeggiator took it from a muted debut to full techno color. We recreated every speck of the original circuitry, interactions, and straightforward workflow to give you the only plug-in with a sound, feel, and interface that stays true to the most-used mono synth of the ’80s and ’90s.

Model 82 Sequencing Mono Synth is in the house."

J3PO - Softube Model 84 - "Delorean Fantasy"

video by J3PO

Softube Model 84 Announcement post here.

"@SoftubeStudios​ has just released their new synth, "Model 84" and I'm really excited about it! In essence, it is a highly detailed recreation of the Juno-106. They had me design some of the factory presets for the synth and in this video, I constructed a song using only the Model 84 synthesizer (except for the drum samples). This synth is super fun and easy to use, and just sounds great right out of the box. I hope you enjoy my Synthwave-y tune "Delorean Fantasy" in this video.

20 J3PO presets (some used in this video) come factory with Model 84. You can purchase an additional 40 J3PO presets for the Model 84 Synthesizer from my website ($10):"
