Thanks, Jok3r.  It's a sound quality that I feel no desire to improve (except for the recording quality, of course).  I'm completely content with the Prophet '08.

Hi all - I think I've posted this song before, but we've just had the video premiered today, so I'm back to present the song once more. I mean, clowns, right? Who doesn't want to see clowns in a pop video?

The song is pretty sparsely arranged... Prophet 5 is the main chordal synth, Moog Grandmother plays the "solo." Soma Lyra 8 is the distorted "guitar." Digitakt drums, P-bass and Pianoteq finish things off...

Ok, I got the "B" 2600 before the great "dist".   But it is a nice synth nevertheless. I can get some convincing flutes from it and nice basses too.  The Vermona paired with it always speaks for itself.    I have both in a rack with some other semi modular stuff.   Just a little ditty I did.

This is a very short (90 second) track that I recorded as an experiment in one take. I was playing a simple riff with lead on the Moog Model D, and pad/bass on the Prophet 6 that was controlling the Peak via MIDI and using a Nord to add some Rhodes-y sounds. The sonic "wash" made my ears happy. So I opened the DAW and recorded the MIDI of three keyboards and the audio of the Moog in one take. I re-recorded some of the audio by playing the MIDI back through the P6, Peak, and Nord. I had to keep the original audio from the Moog because it doesn't use after touch from MIDI. I then dropped the drum track on top of the four audio tracks. The result is, as one might expect, a big swirling mess of squishy sound. But it was fun to do and I found a bit of enjoyment in it.

Hey all - I know this isn't standard practice in the "Your Music" thread, but... I'm doing a livestream gig tomorrow (Sunday March 26) at 1pm (PST) on Facebook. I've been doing these streamed concerts with my wife (and our dog and cats) since the pandemic kicked off. The gigs are synth-free - I'll be playing acoustic 12-string and Wurli - but songs are songs in my world. You needn't have a Facebook account in order to view, and if you miss the livestream, the concert will be archived for later viewing. These have been fun gigs, with a small audience tuning in from all over the world. If you're looking for something to fill an amusing hour, please tune in! Thanks, Ant

Here's the event link...

I want to dedicate this to my awesome girlfriend. She has been such a huge support system for me through some hard times. Every time it feels like there is some immoveable obstacle in front of us she's always there to give me that extra push we both need to persevere.

I've been a big fan of John McCallum's work for a while, specifically his low budget synth oriented scores (Terror Eyes, Surf Nazis Must DIe etc) and one of his best is the score for the incredible Miami Connection. While his synth set up consisted of a Casio CZ-5000 and Sequential Circuits Pro One on Surf Nazis Must Die, I'm not sure if he had the same set up for this.

The Prophet X is doing my "cheap synth" patches that I created using the onboard synth samples (not the onboard oscillators) and cranked the filter drive to give it a really dirty lo-budget feel.

The Prophet 6 is in Unison Mode mimicking the Pro One's duties. Doing all the low bass tones and sound effects.

The Tempest is doing all the drum machine parts through use of a "Tom Cart" kit from Sequential's Tom (as well as some other onboard digital drum machine samples)

Glad to see you're back at it LoboLives,  the soundtrack meets the clips nicely.  Some of those 80's movies were so goofy looking and even more so now ;)

Mr. Crowley Keyboard Intro. (Ozzy Osbourne)

Prophet Rev2 does a surprisingly good pipe organ. I used two Rev2 units and later control them with the Yamaha Montage for some added Montage sounds. I tuned the four oscillators an octave apart, with C1 & C2 mixed a little quieter than C3 & C4. 33% Pulse Width with PWM. If I had another Rev2, I would have used it for the bass, which I like slightly more on the Rev2.

Thank you. I got laid off a week or so ago so I'm just trying to mentally focus on other things like music to distract me until something else comes along. Recorded a few more tracks the other day too.

I agree, Jason.  That pipe organ patch is wonderful.

That's pretty epic Sacred Synthesis. It would make a very fine soundtrack.

I've been on a big kick lately of late 80s early 90s martial arts films. Especially those with Cynthia Rothrock, Billy Blanks, Jalal Merhi and Bolo Yeung. I decided to pay tribute to one of those flicks, TC 2000. A super fun Terminator inspired flick with a kick ass soundtrack by Varouje.

I have no idea what the original score used but I wanted to give a different flavor than my 80s synth stuff. I used the onboard "cinematic" samples in the Prophet X as well as some factory presets. Massive horns, twisting metallic tones, ambient pads and thunderous percussion and hits.

I hope you enjoy!

A very odd one, if I say so myself. But... it's an all-Sequential tune, so there's that! Prophet 5 (chords, melody), Prophet 6 (bass) and Sequential DrumTraks doing the dumb drum thing. And... Kyle doing the singing!

After being laid off a few weeks ago, I've decided to really try and focus on what I want to do in life. As such, I'm really concentrating on using the gear I have currently to it's fullest capabilities.

Although I have used the Tempest as mostly a drum machine or handling background sequence parts in tracks, I've never used it as a full on polysynth in a multitrack situation. So this past weekend I worked on a few tracks with syncing the Tempest to my DAW and doing some overdubs using the synth engine as a polysynth for pads and such.

I always wanted to do a cover of Dennis Michael Tenney's work. His scores for Night Of The Demons, Witchtrap, Leprechaun 3 and 4 and Witchboard 1 and 2.

From what I've researched, Tenney's set up at the time included

Sequencer: Yamaha QX1
Sound Modules: Yamaha DX-7 FM Keyboard
Yamaha TX-81Z FM Module (x3)
Yamaha RX-11 Drum Machine.

I used the onboard digital wavetable samples in the Tempest and went for a purely digital type sound with 3 overdubs. The first handling all the main sequences, the second doing the main melody and the third doing some pads and strings.

I hope you enjoy!

Neat to hear the Non drum side of the Tempest.    PS> I remember seeing that movie.

Tempest is truly underrated as a synth itself.

Yeah the first two Witchboard flicks are awesome. The composer is actually the director's brother. lol

Hey all! I haven't done a track or video exclusively with the Prophet 6 for a while so I gave it a whirl last weekend and did this cover of Dick Maas' score of his film The Lift. Incredibly underrated film and brooding score.

The original was done with a Jupiter 8 and Juno 106 synthesizer but this cover was done 100% with the Prophet 6. As cool as the Prophet 5/10 reissues are, I still don't think I'd ever get them over my Prophet 6. The versatility, onboard effects and features are truly special to me.

Hope you enjoy!
