It's nice to see a new Prophet '08 demo; I watched it yesterday and again today. I think we like some of the same progressive music.
Was the final "OB8" sound based on a preset or did you do it from scratch?

Thanks!  That was one I did myself.  Yes I like the prog stuff.  Can't play like any of those guys though :)

Hey hey

I wanted to share one of my newer Texture & Light tracks, "Heart Throb". It starts out as a pretty up beat synth pop track and then shifts into more of a somber electronic shoegaze-y thing.

The Prophet 08 is handling the main synth line in parts one (2 layers) and the lead arp line in part 2.

Most of the drums are coming from a Tempest FYI.

Wow- What a sublime sound!! Perfection.
You say: "three simultaneous octaves of pulse width modulation." Does that mean that a single note is playing three octaves at the same time, with quieter amounts of the upper and lower octaves... like a three oscillator synthesizer?

Thanks, Jason.   

Yes.  By "three simultaneous octaves" I mean that the oscillators are tuned to 16', 8', and 4' pitches, to use organist terms.  So, every note sounds three octaves at the same time; and yes, the lower and upper octaves are softer than the main octave. 

When you play the lower end with double octaves...oh boy, it arranges the furniture!

Very nice piece. Its hard to believe that its only four notes played at any one time. Impressive!

Very nice winter scenery too. We haven't gotten too much snow this year so nice for scenic views to supplement the great music.

Thanks, Dslsynth.  The pictures are always taken by my wife on our walks.  The woods never look so beautiful as they do immediately after a snowstorm when the sun first comes out and the new snow is still clinging to every limb and branch.

You can tell your wife that she takes great photographs, Sacred Synthesis. Oh and the forest does look really pretty in early spring when captured as near infrared monochrome images! ;-)

@Sacred Synthesis.  Listened to the track.  It is amazing!  You mentioned in another post that you thought the filter should have been opened more.  I don't agree.  The filter in the track was spot on.

Thanks, JDT.  I think the last 1 1/2 minutes would have reached a higher peak with just a bit more from the filter, but in general, I'm happy with the piece and the patch.  You should hear it from a stereo, though.  Yikes.

Thanks, JDT.  Just a demonstration of the nice organ sound the Prophet '08's can produce.  The only aspect I'm still not satisfied with is the pedal sound.  It needs to be quite a bit more prominent and clear.

It's more than that. There's a real passion in that recording.

It's the very noble spirit of the music.  There's goodness within it.  It edifies you, makes you better.

I think you're minimizing the participation of the performer who's bringing the life to the music.  :)

Clocks - Mostly DSI stuff programmed by me!

This is my most recent post on Youtube I call "Clocks." Seems like time just slips away from me when I am programming this synthesizer! I have made just about 64 patches on it and I love programming it! I have had it for just about 4 years now, and I still run across interesting sounds from it. Most of the magic in this song was done by recording the Prophet 08 on my MPC-1000 and overdubbing it, with some MIDI-fied drums and Ultranova on top. Best part is combining the Prophet 08 with a Lexicon which I got for X-mas! I am stoked to be using 90's technology! Now if only I had a REV-2 with 16 voices AND the digital effects onboard! Sigh. I'll have to do with what I have!

Something for everyone's prophet attuned ears, down the electro pop route. Pads and chorus bass lines provided by our trusty little musical workhorse, with some MS-20 thrown in for good measure.

@Sacred Synthesis Just had a listen to your P08 x3 brass track, beautiful sounds and composition, haunting. love it.

Thanks, Komino.  You have a fine voice - very smooth and lyrical.
