Prophet Rev2 / Re: Prophet 6 patches
« Last post by Paul Dither on Today at 03:57:39 PM »
Hi discorules,

Since the Prophet-6 and the Rev2 are entirely different, you can't load patches made on one of them into the other. They have a completely different voice architecture with different parameters and settings. In other words: The Rev2 would have no idea what's going on if you were to load the Prophet-6 sound set into it. So your best bet would be to try to approximate these types of sounds on your Rev2 manually.

Prophet Rev2 / Prophet 6 patches
« Last post by discorules on Today at 03:51:35 PM »
Hi,

This guy sells patches for the Prophet 6, and the patches are very nice for my sound style.

Is there a way to load them in Rev2 , or any workaround ?

Thanks

Prophet Rev2 / Re: Disable Midi start
« Last post by discorules on Today at 03:49:01 PM »
Hi,

I'm trying to integrate Rev2 into my setup and i'm having the following issue :

I configured the Rev2 to be slave and receive Midi clock. Problem is, when i start play from my master Midi (an Elektron machine), Rev2 sequencer will start playing too and i don't want it ; the notes it will play will be sent by Ableton Live. What parameters should i configure to have such behaviour ?

Thanks in advance !

It should be in a setting under MIDI CLOCK called SLAVE No S/S. The synth will then receieve midi clock but not respond to start/stop messages.

Thank you, this did the trick !  :D

Poly Evolver Keyboard / Re: That Poly Evolver Sound

The company response to this dream has always been, "Unlikely," but I don't believe that response any longer.  Dave says one thing but then does another, and sometimes just the opposite.  We've witnessed this several times now.  I don't know what primarily drives the DSI philosophy, whether it's the market or pure whim.  But it seems to include an awareness of the chatter that occurs here and elsewhere; it's not entirely oblivious to the wishes of synthesists.  You can hear this in the Dave Smith interviews.  He clearly knows what's being said, and, to some degree at least, responds to it on the drawing board.

Prophet Rev2 / Re: Overdrive effect pedal for Rev2?
« Last post by jurfin on Today at 01:16:10 PM »
Itís unfortunate how few options there are for stereo drive in a pedal. For what itís worth Iíve built some pedals and I really love the Zvex super hard on circuit. Itís not super flexible, no EQ, but it has plenty of low end and makes everything sweeter. A version with a pre-gain knob adds the ability to go into overdrive instead of just boosting territory. Itís a very simple circuit. Iím sure someone out there would be willing to build you a stereo version if its tone and simplicity appeal to you. Or you could get wild and build one yourself if thatís something youíre interested in.

Probably not the most practical advice but I hope it helps!

I will say one thing. They are making the Grandmother and their modular gear affordable for a lot of users.

I think that's the real news behind the Grandmother: that they managed to make affordable versions of the classic Moog modular circuits available.

I firmly believe the next DSI synth will be a new Evolver. It may be called something entirely different but I believe firmly we will see Dave bring the big blue back. User waves, sequences per oscillator, VS waves with actual vector type synthesis, more polyphony (8 or 10 maybe), dual effects ala Prophet X and either a ribbon controller above the keybed or a joystick of some kind. He's mentioned the Poly Evolver during his synth room tour and seemed very proud of it "A lot of people didn't even know about this when it was released and a lot of people want them now."

I like the look and the on board Spring Reverb but sadly I have no interest in it as a product. I have a Moog Sub 37 and really like it. I think it was a step in the right direction for Moog. On some ways it was what a modern Minimoog should be in regards to functionality. Yet as cool as the Mother 32 is (although overpriced for what you get with it...or lack there of) I just feel Moog has been regressing in some ways. Doing away with memory, presets, and sort of getting back to its origins in some ways...thatís all well and good but Iíd like to see them take the concept of the Sub 37 and expand on it and no 8 donít mean just add CV capabilities I mean offer something fresh.

I've kind of turned around on Moog's whole retro gestalt. I think there's a place for it. We've got Dave Smith, who sometimes touches on the past, but also makes nigh-radical, innovative stuff. There are plenty of other innovators and disruptors out there (tons in eurorack alone). So I say, let Moog be Moog. Let's have the endless procession of monophonic dual-sawtooth-core-oscillator ladder filter stuff. It takes a tremendous amount of creativity to keep doing the same thing in new ways, and I've come to admire it, with no hint of irony in my admiration.

When they went off on their modular reissue course, I said that they were probably not doing it to sell lots of $35,000 synths, but to train their engineers in the nuances of the old modules in order to bring these modules back to musician-level (as opposed to university-level) instruments. And that's what it looks like they're doing with the Grandmother.

I think that the reissue project really broadcast Moog's philosophy for the foreseeable future; so if anyone still has hopes of them coming out with polyphonic synths or digital anything, or triangle core oscillators, that's a sure road to disappointment. The biggest concession to modernity you can expect is continued support of eurorack in lieu of their own 5U modular format. That's pretty big, actually.

I will say one thing. They are making the Grandmother and their modular gear affordable for a lot of users.

Sean Costello from Valhalla DSP recorded some nice demos:

I was happy to hear "Moog Grandmother vs Sleestak God." I can pretty much trace my childhood love of synth tones directly back to Land of the Lost.
