New Prophet X synth library from Goldbaby

New Prophet X synth library from Goldbaby

In case any of you didn't see the announcement or release for BlueWave over the past few of weeks, Goldbaby just released the Prophet X pack for his library yesterday. This library is based on samples of the PPG Wave 2.2 and I think it sounds great if you like some of those sounds from the 80's.

So I have all the 8DIO packs, and the Goldbaby BlueWave pack is easily the best of any pack released so far for the PX.

The quality is fantastic, heaps of really great sounding presets, and more interesting timbral content that any other offerings so far.  Stereo samples, stereo filters, lush.

I really hope this is the first of many Goldbaby packs.  I bought Dirt & Layers ages ago and made my own Prophet X packs of those, and they are also superbly good samples to have on hand.

Don't hesitate on these, worth every penny.

Where are these installed?

I.e the samples (User 1,2,3 etc...)  ?

And the presets are they installed into A1,A2,A3 etc... or one of the user preset banks ?

As I noted in another forum, I was fortunate enough to preview this one, and itís right up my alley as the kind of raw content I think suits the Prophet X beautifully. What Iíve listened to so far has that classic razor-edged bite that screams PPG, sampled by capturing a wide range of underlying tonalities rather than baking in decisions that should be made later when building presets.

After all, the Prophet X has both a perfectly fine analog VCA and the modern recreation of the SSM 2044 filter used in the PPG. The bite can be tamed to the sorts of wam, silky smooth sounds you might expect - but itís easy to create presets that let you dig in and find that aggressive tone lurking underneath. Really nice stuff.

Where are these installed?

As delivered, theyíre set up to install in the User 8 bank and thatís where the presets rely on finding them.  If you donít care about the presets or are prepared to update them, the samples can be installed in a different User bank.

The presets install in U4.

And this is where the problems lie with X sampling. All my user samples are in bank 8. So I'll need to rename all the GB ones or recreate the presets.

Why spend time making music when you can use substandard software? (not aimed at you LG!)

The sample management aspects of the Prophet X are extremely basic and itís likely they simply underestimated how interested people would be in actively creating and sharing samples.  Itís definitely an area where some additional tools could improve matters, no question.

As it happens, I have been thinking some about how to improve matters.  Thereís really no reason why a combined sample + preset librarian couldnít do a decent job of letting you move instruments and presets around prior to installing the, including renumbering them and fixing all the internal references automatically.  Itís just a question of time and effort.

I probably wonít take on something like this immediately, but Iíd definitely offer insight if a commercial vendor wanted to take it on.  Or people could wait for me to hit a workload lull and a burst of productive side-project activity again.

It never hurts to let Sequential know if you find it useful. ;)

I have! I pointed out I'm only complaining because I care about this synthesiser.

Hi everyone,

I've found this website on the net.
All the folders are in .wav, there are some pretty cool things.

Great find. Might not have to finish my Fairlight pack after all. ;)

I'm going to try to import some of these into the PX and see how it goes.

These instal in the same location as the Deckard dream samples :( - What to do ?

Is it enough just to change the folder name to u06, for example ?

Hello,

yes it is !!!
You can also rename the folder ( for example 4 Choir or 5 Cinematic etc...)

You can just rename the folder and the samples will install in the desired user bank.  No problem there.  The presets, however, will still point to the original location.  So if youíre not using the presets itís no big deal.  If you are, however...

I may tackle a preset and instrument management addition to PXToolkit at some point to handle all the required changes.  I havenít committed to doing so, however, and it wouldnít likely happen in the short term if I do.  I might be able to do a bulk edit tool for vendors, however, so Goldbaby and others would have an ugly but functional way to produce alternative presets pointing at different user banks.  Iíll give it some thought (but nothing is happening until I get my laptop back with a new keyboard!)

As logic would have it, someone else saw the logic of "starting at the end"... Oops.

These sound awesome!  Really a great compliment to the PX's oscillators and filters.  Very well done!

I wonder if the wavetable scanning on the old PPG machines is sampled as well.
