A few sounds I've programmed on the Prophet '08

Post by carbon111 » Mon Sep 10, 2007 5:23 am

Quick and dirty prophet'08 demos.
No effects, recorded directly into a field recorder in MP3 format.

No excuses for my playing, these are just to portray the sounds...

EDIT:
More awful demos. This time I've erred on the side of "softness" :)

If you don't like 'em, fine. :D

Sounds great, James. I guess you won't have much time for your new Model D now that you have the 08.

For those who are interested, I'll try to do some more "classic" analog sounds too - strings, brass, combo organ and the like...

Yes please! :)
If you take requests, I'd like to hear some nice long pads/chords (4+ notes) with osc slop, I'm curious how that sounds.

Nice! I want one. I'll trade my wife for it. :lol: j/k...

The 2nd demo you posted has some sort of auto panning in it. Is it random, LFO, alternating, or some sort of effect?

really great sounds!!. I'm about to reduce my studio to pretty much one main poly analog and my modular. It's between the obxa and the prophet 8. The P8 makes sense because its new, similiar price and will have support. Anyone pursued me either way. Thanks.

I''m just noodling, not really playing anything but listen to the sounds themselves...I love this machine!

The sound design on Demo 3 is choice! I want one really badly, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to wait until next year.

I really dug that 3rd demo, kinda FMish with the voice panning jumping around. I can't wait for my local GC to get one in so I can mess with it and maybe buy.

awesome demos they def sound like a good replacement for the gas i had for a p600 and a juno60. I originally bought a p600 on ebay (i kno its terrible but after missing two awesome p600s here for sale) i purchased one that was "100%" working condition i kno i should have stopped. But i bought it anyways and low and behold the keypad is fked and there is plenty of scratching sounds in the ocs. So im in the process of getting my money back which should actually happen :). So then once again i got the ebay bug in me and now have purchased a prophet 08 on ebay for 1850.00 i kno its to amazing to be true but i do have a failsafe the guy lives in the same crappy state i live in VA and he is only about 3 hrs away, so if the deal goes sour then i know where to go :) (plus he provided me with plenty of pictures to "authenticte" the item) i kno i kno i am a sucker..... we shall soon see.

again thanks for the demos

Thanks Guys for the comments - both positive and negative!

I'm really learning you can't please everybody. A lot of folks over on KSS really hate these demos...especially the third one with the filter FM.

I just didn't want to cover the same ground that Ski and Stefan Trippler did.

My Evolver demos were actually "smoother" than the P'08 ones ;)

I wouldn't worry about those folks over there. People want to hear the damn thing and then complain when they do. Personally I want to hear as many different takes on this synth as possible. Not everyone plays or programs the same way. All are welcome. Who are we to judge?

I don't know what KSS is :oops:

Demos sound great. I will go to a showroom at the end of september to try one out properly with various monitors. Noone gets it here in Norway until september/october :(
