Tempest / Re: Prophet X divided by 2 = Tempest 2.0
« Last post by Stoss on Today at 08:06:01 AM »
I'm confident I can do 10x better now

Yes please.

Tempest 2.0 = an experienced rewrite of the firmware.

I don't get why Sequential doesn't see this as a business opportunity. Reputation management for existing users (champions of the product) and a grand rerelease for a bump in sales.

Prophet 12 / Re: Prophet Sundays youtube series
« Last post by Shaw on Today at 07:43:24 AM »
Here's an episode using tuned feedback to make a patch.
 There are many more subtle ways to use tuned feedback within a sound, or in it's own layer. 5his patch uses it for the main body of the sound in all its glory.
 Let me know if you have any ideas that I missed, and what parts of the p12 you want to explore with me next.
 I appreciate the interest and look forward to learning more about this synth with you all together.
 Cheers.

Tempest / Re: Is my tempest broken? Glitchy sounds
« Last post by Yorgos Arabatzis on Today at 07:28:22 AM »
Thatís why i always set the volume and velocity at max values so there wonít be any surprises..If you design your sounds based on that then with a little bit of tweaking you can work your velocity levels to get them right afterwards..Hmm maybe i should update my inconsistency post with this also..
Tempest has always been a love/hate relationship machine for many of the users out there and those little quirks are the perfect example  :P

Another quirk I discovered - I thought that the level knob changes the volume of the sound...how wrong I was...It seems it changes only the osc levels and in some sounds it makes the sound change completely when you turn the knob.

Off Topic / Re: No more MOPHO either
« Last post by Paul Dither on Today at 04:57:37 AM »
Anybody feeling nostalgic for the older instruments?  Probably not...just me.  I would have been happy with a tiny group of people who produced and maintained a small line of synthesizers.  I know, I know....

I realize Sequential is much more proficient now at dealing with problems, bugs, and OS updates, and that seals it for most people.  But I tend towards the smaller, simpler, more boutique experience.

By industry standards, Sequential is still a quite tiny company. The boutique status didn't really change that much in terms of the company's actual size. Even a small company like Moog is still way larger by comparison. But of course the designs became more streamlined, refined, and diversified over time just as much as the target market became more specific, not in terms of musical styles, but in terms of instrument categories, which in turn was a byproduct of how the market developed in the most recent years.

When Dave returned with the Evolver, it seemed like a completely carefree endeavour. It was before the big wave of analog resurgence hit the mass market and when many customers were less dogmatic about certain preferences. The Evolver reflected that openness by the combination of different analog and digital features and being very much its own thing (of course all Sequential instruments are its own thing, but I'm referring to this attribute within the context of certain consumer expectations here). It had its ties to the past, but it was not classifiable by certain trends or fashions because those didn't exist yet to the same degree as they do today. The nostalgia that used to characterize particularly the electric guitar market hadn't hit the synth market to the extend we're now used to.

I still do think, however, that the Evolver remains Sequential's primeval soup. There are still traces of that design in the PX, and before that it obviously influenced the architecture of instruments like the P12 and the Pro 2, the Tempest, the Mopho, and the Tetra. It was the basis for the first analog-only offspring Prophet '08 and its mod matrix philosophy still essentially shapes the flexibility of all current instruments with the exception of the P-6 and OB-6.

Dave Smith Modular / Re: DSM Discontinued?

https://www.sequential.com/product-category/eurorack-modules/

Ah, okay. That's a well-hidden link. You only get there if you click on "Store," but there's no Eurorack modules category in the according drop-down list and they are not listed under "All Instruments" anymore. It's a bit like they've been hidden on purpose.

Sequential Prophet-6 / Re: Prophet 6 stereo/mono
« Last post by IAA Music on Today at 03:02:09 AM »
I currently connect my P6 in stereo, but will likely move to mono because I need the inputs in my interface for something else. Iíll just add FX in my DAW. Iíve tried a few tests and Iíll be fine with this. If itís good enough for the P5 itís good enough for the P6!

Tempest / Tempest Circuit Bending External Audio IN
« Last post by van on Today at 02:44:22 AM »
Did someone tried to circuit bend the Tempest and use the audio signal path with an external audio input?
F.e. use the analog Distortion or Compressor?
