S Y Z Y G Y X Gets their EVOLVER !!
« on: September 10, 2019, 08:56:52 PM »
Annnnnnnndeeeen we JUST purchased an excellent condition DSI Mono Evolver Desktop!  We have a Prophet Rev2 that we absolutely adore sooooo much.  This synth Can hit on so many different techniques and flavors itís amazing!  Plus the fact that DSI instruments all out of the box, all have such sonically rich depth in their instrumentís Stereo Field, (compared to any other synthesizer ďMoog Subsequent 37Ē ďKorg Minilogue XDĒ    my mind was already made up, and ready for the trip to Hell and back to go score our DSI Evolver!  Well Heís home in his Studio now and the sounds that I am effortlessly able to coax out of this lilí box of a machine, are hands down some of the most aggressive, crunchy, warm, Rubbery,  FAT, metallic, edge on a carbon steel blade sounding patches!!!  I thought my dream GAS synth for timbres like this would be the Moog Subsequent 37...I love the Subsequent, oh do I love it, but in no way can it come close to making sounds anywhere near what the Evolver can make! 

A mono synth has always been made to be just that, one note at a time with no stereo ear candy.  Iíve always been fine with that...until now!  For me, the Mono Evolver is the ultimate monosynth !  I hope to make sweet love to it, time upon time 🥰  Evolver - we love you 🖤

Very pleased to hear this. I'm pretty sure there's an admin lurking who'll keep us safe from any detailed "sweet lovemakings," but I hope you'll post some of the fruits of your Evolver's loins.

I hadn't used mine in a while, but plugged it in not long back and recorded a few new tracks with it. I'm normally a "Oh, I don't use presets" snob, but the sounds that came programmed by the DSI elves are utterly brilliant.

Hahah I will def post up some freaky sounds of this beast.  Itís an amazing sounding synth, I mean to have a Mono synth able to have stereo separation on sound is incredible!  I donít know why more synth companies donít do that, and I donít care about added cost as I would gladly pay any extra amount to have stereo filters and outputs!!

I've been using my Evolver in a funny double-duty mode... I was low on mixer channels, so I ran the stereo outs of my TR-707 into the stereo ins of the Evolver, which has a bank of groovy audio processing patches. I used a clean patch if I needed the drum machine straight, but usually I'd tweak the Evolver to get the drums doing all sorts of good, dumb things.
