Re: Polysix, Prophet 600, Jupiter 6; (most like Prophet 5?)

Yep, Prophet-600 definitely closest to P5. It has a few shortcomings (envelopes, parameter resolution), but the sound is great and "Prophety". JP-6 has same VCO chips as P600 and P5, but doesn't really sound similar.

Re: Analogue effects units

Dynacord VRS-23. Analogue bbd modulation delay/reverb. I love them so much I have two. Other vintage Dynacord analogue racks are top quality as well.

There are a lot of options for great and relatively cheap analogue fx, but the VRS-23 is a piece I always recommend to others.

Re: Modeless Factory

Having owned an MS-10, I'd advice against it, if you're looking for something versatile. The sound is something else though. But I was constantly frustrated with the limited patchability. I'd much rather get something like a CS-15. Sounds good, can do a lot more AND it's relatively cheap.

Re: Synth examples, post them here.

That was nice! The Jupiter sounds great! Thanks dude :) The Jupiter indeed sounds great, much much better than my lousy demo, in fact. The "Noiseprofessor" has a couple of really impressive demos here . But yeah, the JP-6 is probably my favourite polysynth so far, until I manage to save enough mone...

Re: Synth examples, post them here.



A Roland Jupiter-6 pad demo ditty. It's mainly just pads of different types, a little "cs80" brassy lead and a lot of "reverb" from Dynacord VRS-23.

Re: Which Polys have Bandpass Filtering?

Great :D Also, I read the description of the SunSyn again, it sure can do BPF. It's actually an awesome idea to make each stage of the 4pole switchable independently between HP and LP, as well as cutoff freq. That should make some crazy sounds I guess :) It is a nice design, yes. But if I remember ...

Re: New Moog apparently...

Hey, AG, would you describe the Minitaur as a strictly bass synthesizer? How high can it go?

It's a shame it doesn't have osc sync.

Sorry, Jeff, still haven't managed to find the time to find a suitable tape deck to try the preset tape out.

Absolutely. Though the subosc probably was a cost-cutting measure at first, it really does have something unique to offer.

Re: Prophet 600 VS Juno 60

I have both (and a Polysix) and I much prefer the P-600. Like CfNorENa mentioned, the P-600 is the deeper synth, and with "that" powerful American synth sound. I like my Juno-60 (tight, focused) and Polysix (ethereal, soft) well enough, but if I had to pick one, the P-600 would be my choice for an a...

Re: Prophet 600 vs tetra

They do indeed sound very similar once you get the "oscillator slop" on the Tetra going. I don't think one sounds better than the other. It just depends on what is more appealing to you: the Tetra's sequencing, wild LFOs and sub oscillators or the P600's hands-on controls and arpeggiator. Regarding...

Re: Prophet 600 vs tetra

Had a Tetra on loan for a couple of days before I (re-)bought a P-600 and I've owned a dEvo. For some things the Tetra sounded better to me, than the P-600, and concerning analogue sounds, better than the Evolver. The low end is more focused and the envelopes are tighter, snappier, faster, etc. Ie. ...
