Prophet 12 / Re: How to Set Modulation of OSCs Freq Greater Than 8va?
« Last post by martin3 on Today at 01:28:47 AM »

Hi,

second mod slot doesnt go over the first ones max. Second LFO synced to the first doesnt work either here but Env3 in repeat goes higher.

Hope this helps somehow,

Martin

Itís likely one of the projects Sequential is working on but I really do hope they have two VCOs and two Wavetable oscillators. One Wavetable oscillator just isnít enough, especially on a poly synth.

Oh I completely agree! Iíd even be fine with no VCOs as long as thereís two wavetable oscillators.
I mean, four like the prophet 12 would be amazing but I honestly donít even need it to be as deep as the P12.
Wavetables, three Analog filter options, three Analog envelopes and two of their fx engines in a desktop unit. Dream digital synth right there. 
What I wanted the Peak to be but it just didnít have the TONE sequential has been consistently bringing to the table with the rev2, ob6, prophet 6 and pro3. (No offense to any peak lovers out there)

A recent video interview he said he's sick of the name and so are most of the people at Sequential.

Jimmy Buffet said that he's sick of the name Margaritaville too.  Price of success. I don't think Jimmy Buffet will stop playing it anytime soon.  Dave Smith ---?

I remember when they first introduced the REV2...just REV2....everyone thought it was a dumb name (and it was) and they demanded the Prophet name be put on it....and Dave went with the Prophet REV2. Unless he is going to start resurrecting names like "Trax" "Max" etc from the old Sequential catalog I think the only name they can really put on a poly at this point is a Prophet ____ or Poly Evolver. Anything else is going to get a hard reception I think

I would also add that itís particularly essential on these two synths, since with the other polys you create envelope slop / voice mismatching with the mod matrix. The ďvintageĒ algorithm is a great and simple solution for adding flexibility to digital envelopes.

It's a completely different sound. Even Dave said it's nothing like Slop.

Pro 3 / Re: External Audio Processing! Tips, tricks, best practices?
« Last post by creativespiral on Yesterday at 11:02:31 PM »
I'm hoping to learn a bit more about how to best use my pro3 for processing external audio.

Maybe I should email the Sequential crew regarding best practices but I figured it could spark some cool conversation here.

I've gotten some fun results while experimenting but I feel like I could get more mileage if I made some improvements to my setup.

Currently I am using the Pro3 as an "External Audio Effect" in Ableton. I have a dedicated patch saved on the Pro3 just for this use.

Template patches like this are super handy. On this template I also have two matching modulations from the envelope follower to cutoff but with their amounts controlled by the fader. It's nice to just turn in this patch and be able to dial that in by ear for a given situation with the fader in one hand and the EF menu settings in the other.

I'm wondering if a reamp box could help as I am getting a fair amount of mid range hum only when using it with with the output of my interface like this. I have to play with the signal chain a bit more but I'm hoping for some thoughts here.

Another thing I'm really curious about is the External Audio gate setting in misc params and it's threshold. I can't for the life of me trigger the envelopes from external audio. I'm stuck droning a key press with the OSC turned down. Anything I'm missing here?

Attached two short early experiments with external processing a guitar. Just having some noisy fun  8)

Two more examples with more typical processing. For all stems of both of these I have the sound routed through the Pro3 for coloration and filtering. Then I bounce to audio and record another track. Fun stuff.

(Sorry for double comment. When I went to edit my OP, the original attachments disappeared.)

I haven't experimented with Ext In on Pro3 yet.  These sound cool though... nice grooves!   

I usually use an outboard rack unit for guitar, but if you're looking to do it all in Ableton, you might try a chain like Gate>Saturator>Amp>Cab>Pro3    Use noise gate to cut out noise/hum, set amp to clean and pick a cabinet of choice, and then adjust saturator/amp gain levels to taste.    The Cab block will take some of the edge off the sound, before hitting the Pro3 for effects/filtering.... or if you want to keep it more full range / chimey, skip the cab and you can just use filtering in the Pro3 to tame it.   That would be my suggestion for a native Ableton chain.

That "Vibin Up Some Breaks" sounds like the start of a good track... reminds me of Massive Attack... good stuff.

Doh! That was indeed the issue with the pedal and I remember skimming through that bit now... Thanks for the reminder!

Ö and my sustain pedal (that I've used on all other DSI/Sequential products) won't work with it.

The default on the Prophet-5 Rev4 is different than modern synths to match the original Prophet-5 mode of operation. Take a look at the Chapter 2: Prophet 5 Controls > Global Settings > GlobalsóBottom Row (p.15) of the manual for a description of the Release/Sustain switch setting. And, of course, that the sustain pedal is plugged into the Release jack.

Just in case that's the issue with your sustain pedal.

Hopefully you're right as that would make the most sense. However, that's not how it functions on my unit. It's acting really strange on mine and it becomes discernible on certain filter settings and acts differently on different notes... The vintage knob functions differently on D4 and E♭4, for example. My unit was damaged during shipping, so unless it's a bug, I'm now assuming that was one of the effects... There's something rolling around on the inside & the globals button is wonky. Other than that the P10 seems to be functioning normally... It certainly sounds incredible!  :P

Edit: my sustain pedal (that I've used on all other DSI/Sequential products) won't work with it. *This was my bad.
