A lovely, little rhapsody. There were some sounds I'd really like to copy onto my P12. The timpani and the triangle-like sound around 3:13.

Thanks silvain,   The timpani drum is actually a factory preset 4-48  with the delays off.  Best timpani I've heard from a non-sampled source.  The cymbal is a real Chinese cymbal I have.  The triangle was a real triangle.  I'll often use real percussion if I can't synthesize it.

Would love to see some examples of the Prophet 12 doing Synclaiver type tones.

Just a repost of a song I posted last week (lost during the forum glitch).  All Prophet 12, except cymbals.

Here's one a little out of my normal style.  The melody is Korg PolySix software.  The rest is Pro-02 and P-12

Never would have got these sounds out of the P-08 (I assume Rev. 2 also)

Pro 2; Prophet 12; EastWest Orchestral soft synths; Yamaha S-90; Yamaha Montage 8, Yamaha DX-7; KARP Odyssey; Ensoniq ESQ-1.  All run through a Cubase DAW with a Tascam DM-24 board.

It was a probably the most difficult sound for me to make on a synth...but thanks to the P12 I think I got a pretty decent river with some faint gurgling over the rocks.  Also from the P12 is the banjo, upright bass and harmonica intro..and the shimmer pad and sequence.

Birds - peewee, robin, blue jay, mourning dove, and flicker are from the Nord Lead 4.

Woodpecker, owl, frogs, locusts and crickets from Roland Gaia- which by the way I keep it for that purpose ;)

 Deepmind 12 for violin string pad and guitar.

And finally,  the crow.....That's an actual crow call I blow into.  I can't figure out how to synthesize a crow.

That is a superb gurgling stream sound - very convincing because not static.  And you are undoubtedly the synthetic bird man.

Thanks Sacred Synthesis!   Yes, I think those birds are becoming my niche ;)  But some of that inspiration might be from replacing the birds so slow to arrive this unusually cool spring in Ohio :(

 I do enjoy the P12 very much so far, though I've used it surprisingly little so far due to distractions.   Recently got tangled up with the PEK (which is a good thing).   Plus...I'm going to be replacing the computer that I use for music this week with a beefier set up.   I don't enjoy that aspect of making music in some ways.  For example, not looking forward to re-buying the soundtower editors and various other other software I'm using. Yet, something as simple as as a software oscilloscope can add a lot of usefulness that I wouldn't want to not have anymore,

This isn't all Prophet 12, but the high synth string, the lead and one of the bass parts is. :)

Entirely P12.  Effects used are Strymon Big Sky and Lexicon 200.

A nice variety of matured distinctive sounds in this one.  That harpsichord/clavinet tone is excellent.  And the music is almost cinematic, with a touch of fear or suspense.  Great job as always, Soundquest.

@WytchCrypt- I really liked it.  You developed some good sounds on the P-12.  I like 70's too!

I had never really listened to Holst before.   So, I listened to the whole Planets suite on Youtube.  I didn't realize what I had been missing.   He was definitely influenced by Wagner. 

I am becoming more and more impressed with the P-12.  It's capabilities are amazing.

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for your kind words!  After getting through the learning curve I've found that developing new P12 voices is almost as much fun as playing them  8)  I think I also took it as a challenge because there are so many anti-P12 posts out on other forums who claim it can't do vintage analog sounds.  I think it's a brilliant synth because it can do so many things so well and has so many mod matrix options.

Re: The Planets, other than Mars (which I knew well from King Crimson & ELP's cover versions) I had never heard any of the other pieces before recording them with the P12.  It was great fun to discover them this way and I was blown away by the compositions.  I'd been aware of the work forever but had no idea it was so cool!  The style reminds me a lot of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition and Night on Bald Mountain along with Saint-Sens' Dance Macabre.  I believe these are often referred to as "symphonic tone poems".  Very cool melodies and harmonies going on all over the place with a dash of dissonance here and there to spice things up  ;)

I'm always on the lookout for other similarly styled classical pieces to do a P12 adaptation on...anyone have suggestions?

Check out Sibelius’ tone poems if you’d like some more source material to play with.

Sacred Synthesis,  RE: song:    thanks for the kind review.    For that arpeggiator  at the beginning with the clavinet sound- I played the one arp track over top the other with identical pattern.  Same deal at the end- where I have 4 arps stacked (but played individually).

I know Free Improv is not everyones cup of tea, but I have a duo ‘Hedge’ with a guitarist and this live gig recording shows how versatile the Prophet 12 can be. (4 six minute tracks and a 14 minute track - I mainly use one home made quadraphonic voice per track)

Chaparral,

The metallic sounds (i'm assuming this is all P12) are really convincing.

I did this one up for anyone surfing for P12 sounds. This is a 2 layer patch, composed in midi and tracked once; no overdubs.

That's a magnificent sound, very dramatic.  The bass register is superb.

Thanks Sacred!
 I'm really loving my P12. It has never not done what I wanted it to do and, more often than not, taken me in directions that I wouldn't have thought of on my own.

@standingwave: I can only agree, what I lovely sound in Rain protocol! It's gorgeous! I also like the atmosphere and sounds of Fool in the morning.
