I released this 3 track ep a few weeks ago. Used my prophet 6 for all the chord progressions!

This has nice sound, it sort of reminds me of New Order.

It's rather primitive... but it's a little something...

PEAK on bass, Rev2 with Strymon pedals on the noisy arpeggio in the back, ableton on drums, Kronos everything else.

Iíve only just learned how to use Ableton so am shamelessly late to the party. This is my first attempt. Still need to work on this a fair bit, including replacing the one-bar drum loop with something for each section and tweaking the synth voices.

I find this track quite funny... sounds like the menue screens in some of our Nintendo Wii Games   ;D ;D ;D

This is a mix of synths but all doing their specific purpose.   The P-12 is doing some fiddle/cello in the middle.  The Nord Lead 4 is doing the breathing, random noise thruout (via Polyend sequencer), as well as the radio sound at the beginning and end.  Made a patch on DM-12- that is plucky strings -that I use quite a bit in conjunction with the Linn Instrument for slide and tremolo effects..  The Summit is used for the LFO bass and voices, best noticed in the beginning and ending minutes.

I've posted a few of my teenage synthpop things here before, but pretty sure I've not posted this one. It's me in the basement, back in 1986, I think. The main synth is Prophet 6, with a bit of PolySix choir amongst. TR-707 drums. I was into Kate Bush and Peter Gabriel at the time, which comes across for better or worse! This was done on a Yamaha MT-44 4-track cassette deck.

Cheers, jok3r! I have started re-making some of my teenage tunes, and this one would be a blast. One of these long C-19 days, maybe!

I love it! I would like a high quality remake of this song!

I almost missed your answer inside the quote...  :D :D :D

Yeah, the C-19 crisis is hard for many... but it gives oppotunities to others and to do stuff you couldn't for years. I'm training my classical piano skills at the moment. If I had some spare time for music, I needed to program sounds for my cover band in the past years. Now all gigs are canceled and I can play for myself... and I enjoy it very much, to be true. I started to build up a little home studio, too.

I know this may sound like sheer mockery to people that need the gigs for a living. I hope you don't feel offended by me and that you will find your way through the crisis.

I'm still not the world's great Tech Guru when it comes to forums and text formatting!

And I'm not sure if you're speaking directly to me or to the gigging musicians on the forum in general, but I, for one, took zero offence at your words. These are deeply challenging times and we've all been affected by the pandemic, in all sorts of ways. I know people who've had C-19 and recovered, and I know people in hospital at the moment. Still, it's human nature to carry on however we can. In the face of this frightening tragedy, Tiger King has become a "comforting distraction!" And I say this having watched it myself. But meanwhile, on the "why we're here" front, many of us are trying to find ways to keep making music, keep getting it out into the world. I don't know if I miss gigging, oddly. I'm probably making more cash writing for a French band I'm in than I would from gigs right now. My gig life is scrappy and inconsistent lately. I would've done a small solo Spanish tour in July followed by recording and gigging with the French band, and that would be my income for summer. Instead, everyone in the French band is stuck at home, and the bandleader keeps writing and sending me tracks to which I add melodies and lyrics. Because it's all we can do right now towards a second album, everyone is extra keen to make it work.

There's no shame in finding an upside in this unprecedented and freaky time! That said, I'm having a harder time working on my own songs. My gf is working from home and I don't have the blocks of open writing time I normally would if she was in the office! And I'm sure this won't be weird to the folks of the forum, but I'm trying to find a way to buy a second-hand Prophet 6 here in California. Mine lives in Berlin and the thought of being without it for months is unsettling! Priorities, eh?

Oh, well... in the beginning it was more directed to you personally... but then I remembered that we are on a forum and that others will read this, too. So I added something more general.

I felt a need to add the last line, because I have strange feelings about being so happy because of the crisis, while the existence of others is in pure danger. I have really great luck that my (and my partners) job is not affected by the crisis at all... and in fact almost no one of our friends is in trouble, too. At the moment of writing the lines I remembered being in a musicians forum where a lot of professionals are, and that there might be a lot more people having troubles than I have in my little world. I just wanted to show them, that it's not a matter of course for me being happy at the moment and that I know that it's really, really bad what is going on.

Perhaps I'm reading too much newspapers, but when I read about well known politicians, other VIPs and countries that talk the whole thing down, I thought when writing the above lines in an international forum I have to point out that I'm not such a dumbass who doesn't care about this (If someone feels offended by that, then he/she should ;-) ), because this seems not to be a matter of course, too. Sad, but true.

I agree w jok3r,  this deserves a remake.  Great happy 80's sound.

Thanks, Soundquest... I'm glad you like it. A remake would be a blast to work on.

Funny that I've ended up with a second P5, a second TR-707 and I now have the same PolySix again that was mine at the time I wrote the song. I'm easily set to do a remake, I guess. I'd love to get a real drummer and bassist on the case this time around. Of course, the bass would have to be a fretless for proper '80s vibe!

I lose track of what I've posted to the forum, but I did indeed recently re-do another song of mine from the same era. My current California band are on it, with me playing a nice squash of Prophet 5 and Prophet 6. I'll upload it to SC one of these days...

Just got a prophet 6, having a lot of fun with these INHALT patches, they're right up my alley. I really want to complete this DAWless rig with a Zoom recorder, MPC (in lieu of a Cirklon), another poly (maybe a Multi-Trak, Matrix 6, or Rev2), and possibly a Bass Station II, because currently my Tempest is tasked with bass duties.

I'm unfortunately locked out of my studio space for the foreseeable future due to quarantine so I've been going through some files on my computer and decided to put a few tracks out. This one is longer and pretty chilled out.

Allan is on the Strat running through the Roger Linn Adrenelinnn iii Guitar Effects Box (Which is also doing the tribal drum beat).

I'm on the Prophet-X playing a Rhodes patch with a phaser on it and a nice blend of orchestral strings and Solina-esq synth strings near the end.

Enjoy!

The title comes from the 1945 film of the same name.

Vermona DRM Mk3 and Mopho sequenced form my daw. I accidentally sent my drum sequence to my synth and it sounded surprisingly groovy. The result:

Here's one of mine from a forthcoming album called Manbird. The song is "Space Force," and it's based on the real deal, not the Orange Man's chewing gum fantasy! SCI synths only make a cameo here, with a touch of Prophet 6 and Pro One doing the "beeyyow" drone note once or twice. Drumtraks (mixed with bits of poorly mic'd Ludwig) make up the drum kit. That's a Korg Prologue doing the solo. I love the Prophet 6 as a lead synth, but the Prologue is a lovely one as well. Bryan Poole on mad, wiggly guitars! Hope you enjoy!

Renewal by Callistella, an ambient EP to accompany psychedelic journeys, used the Prophet 6 and Ob6 as the main synths.
