I appreciate the kind words Chaparral.
 I've read your posts here with great curiosity and admiration in your approach to this instrument.
 Take care.

Sequential Prophet X / Re: Some PX mellotron Samples for you
« Last post by Lady Gaia on Yesterday at 09:31:48 PM »
Yes, I do have to adjust the oscillators. These are samples I found online and converted.

I can see the tuning being part of the charm, but if you wanted to produce a pitch perfect set you might want to try PXToolkit which will let you describe how far out of tune each of the original samples are.  In addition to the original note thereís a +/- pitch adjustment for each sample.  Enter positive values if the original pitch is sharp, negative if itís flat.

Awesome samples! I absolutely adore Mellotrons. I have had the ElectroHarmonix Mel9 Mellotron pedal to fill the void.

Do you too have to pitch your oscillators to match the tuning of them? Seems to be a whole step plus quite a bit of fine tuning. What do you recommend?

Sequential Prophet X / Re: VCO Pack for Prophet X
« Last post by blewis on Yesterday at 06:12:01 PM »
I would avoid trying to use the MPC Live for this. I did a write up of my pains trying this method on the Gearslutz forum.

Both AlanC and Lady Gaia ran circles around me using Sample Robot. Basically it all came down to start samples and looping, both of which the MPC sucked at. Mind you, the way MPC handles itís Start pointer works great on the MPC - but horrible for exporting a wav for another sampler.

Mainstage on the Mac was similarly painful, but better, but not much.

I spent days cursing at this stuff. LOL. Downloaded at least a dozen free audio tools - all of which destroyed various pieces of critical metadata.

Similar to SampleRobot, the MPC Live and X now have auto-sampling. I have a Live so could set up some multisamples of my own, but it sure is nice when very experienced people have already done so and shared their hard work! :)

Multisampling is far too much of a headache for me to accomplish with any level of quality on my own.

The secret here, for me at least, was SampleRobot.

LadyGaia suggested it in a thread on GS. I was initially sceptical, but since I have a Yamaha Montage and Yamaha were offering the Montage-specific version for free I decided to give it a go. It turned out to be an excellent product that can fully automate the process of sampling a MIDI controllable synthesizer and, with some practice, can also automate the otherwise extremely time-consuming process of looping the resulting samples. So I upgraded the Montage-specific version to the full product with a view to using it to create samples for an unrelated project I'm working on.

The process of creating the OB-6 and Erebus sample sets was basically one of setting up a series of SampleRobot projects to record the relevant note ranges for each waveform, making sure the levels were appropriate, and then leaving SampleRobot to get on with the job. LadyGaia subsequently handled the looping of the samples, and did an excellent job. There's something of an art to setting the parameters that control this process, and at the time I was still very much at the learning stage.

I'm happy to hear that you - and others - are enjoying the results. :) But if you are interested in doing something of this kind yourself then SampleRobot really can take the majority of the pain out of multisampling, particularly when sampling a synthesizer.

Also, notice that the Inst1/2 sample loops are set to Sync mode with the loop size/center modified. Play with that, too.

Off Topic / Re: Your Music

I've no idea where this might sit amongst the collective ear here, but it's a cover I did a few years back of Dylan's "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight," imagined, I imagine, as the Magnetic Fields doing the Velvets. There's an obvious and obnoxious Pro One featured throughout the track...

Sequential Prophet X / Re: Turning OFF the MIDI clock

With F4P79 (X-Short Str Wub), some things to consider:

  • Inst1 & Inst2 Loop disable/enable; in this path, both Inst1/Inst2 are set to loop the samples.
  • LFO2 ó take a look at the LFO Destination (Cutoff) and Sync Freq; that's having an effect on the oscillators.
Also, it can be helpful to adjust the Inst/Osc levels in the Mixer as you experiment with settings. The Clock BPM should adjust the tempo of the loop and LFOs, also.

Hope that helps some.

Sequential Prophet-6 / Re: Alternate Tuning / Scales editing improvement
« Last post by Kja on Yesterday at 03:26:08 PM »
Do we load this like a normal os update? I don't really get what this is? So as it was before if you use custom timings they will be wrong? I'm sorry for sounding like a stupid meat head but if the shoe fits right?

Sequential Prophet-6 / Re: Feature request: A large reverb!
« Last post by Kja on Yesterday at 03:12:37 PM »
I really wanted a cutdown version of the super plate.. that would be insanely cool. For now I'm kidding the reverb with the digital delay and can get pretty good reverb's.. but I really want the super plate.
