Re: Quarantined for 2 months with one synth...

Easy. I’m currently self-isolating with my Oberheim Marrix 1000 which I bought last year for 600 Canadian dollars. It’s a damn deep little synth with enough modulation options to keep me busy with interesting and complex patches for the time being. I’ve grown to really enjoy the sound after being d...

Re: Behringer Pro 800, Prophet 600 clone

Prophet 600 is a great synth, no doubt, with the old classic vibe. The new Prophets are great as well, especial the P6, P12 and the Rev2. The new Pro 3 is promising. But still missing a modern P5, hope that’s on Behringer’s list - if not Uncle Dave get the brilliant idea of making a Prophet 5 (rev ...

Re: Behringer Pro 800, Prophet 600 clone

:hmm: i think it might be interesting if they came out with a full keyboard version of this at some point that used the ds-80 keybed to transform this into a sort of born-again prophet-t8. cheers now that would be quite something, especially if it added the T8's split/layers as well as its poly aft...

Re: Behringer Pro 800, Prophet 600 clone

I’ve had my GliGli P600 up against a Rev 3 P5 and concluded that the P600 resonance was considerably harsher. Also the filter didn’t seem to open quite as fully as the P5, resulting in a somewhat murkier, less hi-fi sound. I actually preferred the P600 to be honest, but can totally understand that m...

Never heard of Misantropen until now, I like it! Not much in the way of Acid but maybe Abdulla Rashim? Check out Asayita, I really like that one. Also, Acronym's "River Red Gum" is similar...maybe a bit faster than what you're after though....also both associated with Northern Electronics. :D I'd r...

Replies: 97

On the vintage side, in order of attachment:

Sequential Prophet 600 - The Prophet 5’s punk kid brother is my favourite poly
Roland Juno 6 - So simple, so good
Yamaha TG-500 - a hit of pure nostalgia
Korg EX-8000 - love that filter, hate the interface
Oberheim Matrix 1000 - useful but bland

For me it's the Sequential Prophet 600. I'm always amazed just how darn moody & lo-fi it sounds. I swear it's alive. Followed at some distance by the unique Dreadbox Abyss and Juno 6 both of which feel like "proper" musical instruments with characterful but limited sounds married to well-designed in...

Hi All, https://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/userpix2/4325_antiphonsq_1.jpg I just got an email from Dreadbox announcing their new kit https://www.dreadbox-fx.com/product/antiphon-diy-kit/ It appears to be a simple sine-wave harmonic oscillator with a built in spring reverb.

The price is slightly high, considering I picked up a minty P600 with the GliGli mod fitted for 1600 CDN last year. That said, it's an amazing little synth and easily my favourite analog poly. EDIT: There's actually one here in Toronto for the same price that looks in great condition: Kijiji Prophet...

That's a really interesting idea, can't wait to try this! Cheers

Nice to see and hear some love for the Harmonic Oscillator, still my favourite analog VCO and the heart of a small 9U ambient system I've been playing with a lot over the last week. I think of the VHO as a sort of mini additive synth voice the doesn't really require much filtering Lately I've been u...

If you can afford to, I strongly recommend packing the Euro away and taking a sabbatical before selling off at a hideous loss and regretting it in the future. If you can't do that, try concentrating on each module and how it interacts with its peers, and then embark on the the relaxing, zen-like jou...
