Catchy tune.   I actually like the P5 version better.  But I think its just that the bass line is a little softer in the mix.

Cheers, SQ. The timbre of the P5 bass patch is also a bit softer, as well as being mixed lower. I mixed the P6 version of the song through both speakers and headphones, whereas the P5 mix was headphones-only. I won't be back in Berlin until October, but I'm curious to compare the versions through speakers in my studio.

Of course, in the meantime, I did a mix combining both P5 and P6. It turned out quite alright - whatever differences between the synths, they certainly add up to something epic! I feel incredibly fortunate to have both Prophets in my life.

Here we go, my first ever tune featuring the Prophet Rev2. https://soundcloud.com/user-252754541/seeing-things-differently. I am a bit nervous about doing this, as I don't consider myself to be a good musician - but I am too old now to let anything hold me back  :)

Patch consists of two Rev2 layers, driven by Bitwig version 2 on different midi channels (multimode). Because of a small bug in multimode I made sure Bitwig never played the same note simultaneously on each channel (octave apart is fine). Also featuring my very first Blofeld Mellotron patch, sample based. Percussion provided by stock Bitwig samples.

Rev2 patches only have small amount of EQ added, no external effects. Blofeld Mellotron flute external effect is provided by Lexicon MX-400 (chorus + reverb arena in series mode).

Very nice, Gerry.  I especially liked the bass and the beautiful flute chorus.  There were some lovely chord progressions in the upper registers.  More, please!

Thanks Sacred, so kind. There will be more with the Rev2. It is a wonderful instrument and I have started to include it nicely into my work flow. Was worth the wait  :)

Absolute synthnewbie and the Rev 2 is my first and beloved Hardware. I made my first patches and a little piece with it. All sounds and fx come from Rev2.

Hi gang- a slight change of pace for normally pop-focused me. This is an improvised ambient track I made way back in maybe 1986. Prophet 5, Korg PolySix, Pro One and Korg MS-10 would have been the synths used, with the P5 shining as you'd expect. This has to be the most chill piece of music I've ever made, and it's almost weird for me to hear it now. Hope you enjoy.

Given the discussion about other (digital) synths in the sister forum, this is a track I wrote last weekend featuring the Rev2 and the Blofeld. Enjoy! I will post the patch sheet for the Rev2 shortly.

First time I used Evolver in a track. This track features only DSI synths, Prophet Rev2 and Evolver Desktop, no outboard effects (needed). Rev2 and Evolver effects sufficient for my taste  ;). Percussion are samples played by the Akai S5000 + some limited effects (Midiverb II).

Another track I wrote a while back with my friend. Decided to use it as a basis just test out the Prophet 6 after getting it back from the repair shop. So far so good.

Hi Gang - here's a different type of "Berlin School" for you - it's my attempt at a Kurt Weill sort of number. Apart from the MS20 drones at the start of the track, the minimal backing is all Prophet 6. Only two patches are used- a distorted organ and a basic plonky saw-tooth thing that sounds a bit like a piano in context. What sounds like a bass track is just the low left hand. The drums - kick, snare and hi hat - are also P6. The song is a bit to the left of what I usually do, and I'm tempted to have a singer I've started working with in Berlin have a go at it, as this is more her typical style than mine. For the moment, it's simply a fun song that came quickly together. Hope you enjoy!
