You can now update the 5 to a 10! https://www.sequential.com/2021/09/prop ... nd-new-os/

Personally, I just use my other Prophet 5 for the left hand bits.

Prophet 5 was a good name, a name can make a synth, I don’t like the Take 5, very naff, I’m inventing the next Sequential synth right now, it’s going to be the Sequential Spectre, let’s put the name before the synth.

SEQUENTIAL SPECTRE

Looks great, sounds great, and leaves open lots of room for sonic exploration.

Track 1, this track of mine was done with an original Pro 5 Rev 3, hired for the session, it’s still one of my favourite tracks done with a 5.

Thanks John, you know when you listen to something you’ve done and you think "who’s that?…….not bad" that’s me every time, it has to be a good sign of something!

I've had the album for months, if not a year or more; the whole thing is a great listen :thumbup:

I can tell you exactly how that track was done, Pro 5, Bel BD80s, Hill 22-8-2 desk, with a Lexicon LXP1 reverb, I was recording a guitarist, and did this when he had a tea break.
The rest of the tracks were all entirely different, different equipment, but all in chronological order, all done in one take, improvisations.
I drew the album cover, while I was selling clothes in Camden market, to pass the time.
The Prophet 5? yes, fantastic, you don’t really need a 10, the 5 is fine, the modulation section is where it’s at, it’s so immediate, and easy to use, and can get really "WTF" interesting at the drop of a hat.

Thanks for that info. I love reading about how tracks were made.

I never associated the Prophet with that kind of sound. I don't know why.

We were having quite a radical improv session, then in the break, I just called up a preset, and tweaked the envelope a bit, that was it.
I think the Bel, and the desk all added something, the Bel was on long delay mode, with lots of feedback, so god knows what was going on there.

Arpangel,
Thank you for reviewing my music! I bought my first synth in 1981, a Sequential Circuits Pro One. I still have it, but don't play it often since it has no MIDI. Enjoy the Prophet 10, if you own one! Now listening to your End Of the World: first song: very nice strings. Second song: it sounds like you play piano (or equivalent) very well. Nice melodies and audio quality on both songs. I took piano lessons for 5 years; did you takes lessons? :)

Thanks Aaron, your music is great stuff, keep on with it.
Tom Robinson is a very approachable person, if you haven’t already he’d probably be pleased to talk to you, he does the occasional under cover gig, I’ve been to a few, good place to meet and talk to people.
We got picked up by Stuart Maconie, the Freak Zone guy, these shows, like Toms, are a great platform, it’s good they exist, if they choose a track, you’ve instantly got access to a huge audience, what I’ve found is that you have follow it up, and keep up the momentum.
