DSI Prophet ’08 Module: Advanced Sequence
Audio & video by Arjen Schat
I bought the Prophet ’08 Module back in 2008 but never really used the internal step sequencer to its full potential. In this video I use three layered sequences which were all composed using the internal step sequencers. The first sequence modulates the pitch of oscillator 1 in layer A, the second sequence modulates the pitch of oscillator 2, also in layer A. The third sequence modulates the pitch of both oscillators in layer B.
I use key step triggers to trigger the different steps of the sequences and alternate between three different notes with yet another sequence coming from my DAW (Renoise). These notes transpose the pitch of the sequences at their respective steps and create intricate polyrhythms due to the different lenghts of the internal sequences and the key step trigger sequence from Renoise.
The notes in the trigger sequence are also transposed a few times to keep things sonically interesting.
The audio is routed through a Moog MF-104Z BBD delay, a Maxon AD999 BBD delay and T-Rex Room-mate reverb.
we are planning a music-project with only analog synthesizers from the wonderful synth-collection of martin forrest. he owns more than 140 instruments from every synthesizer generation und they are all in perfect condition! You find all the legends from moog, ARP and oberheim over sequential circuits to PPG, EMU, Roland and Yamaha and all the Samplers of Akai, Emu and Roland.

Roberson Audio has updated their site and released updated versions of three free virtual analog instruments for Windows:
- RA Mowg – The Roberson Audio Synthesizers interpretation of the MiniMoog Model D synthesizer.
- Oddly-Free – The Roberson Audio Synthesizers interpretation of the Arp Odyssey Mk. II synthesizer.
- Prophanity - The Roberson Audio Synthesizers interpretation of the Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 synthesizer.
Oddy-Free and Prophanity have been bumped up to version 1.4, and RA Mowg has been updated to version 1.2. The main changes to all have been the filter implementation so that these instruments have a bigger sound to them without being untrue to the original instruments.
Roberson Audio Synthesizers is the premier provider of vintage synth emulations as well as specialty request plugins.
Named after Chris Roberson, the lead designer of said instruments, Roberson Audio Synthesizers aims to build the best possible VST effects and instruments for the Windows PC platform.
Roberson Audio specializes in mimicking analog synth technology, but also builds model-based synths, and is open to specific commissioned requests if feasible.
Chris can be reached for questions about his synths and products, as well as questions pertaining to commissioning specific plugs, at email@example.com

“Annus Mirabilis 1983″ MARK JENKINS guesting with The Land of Yrx, Shrewsbury open air 1983. Mark Jenkins (Sequential Prophet 600 & Pro One), David Gate (keyboards, drum machine and MC), Rob Andrews (Bass), guests Ray Gordon (flute), Steve Collins (guitar), drunk audience (shouting). Video by Nick Elborough.
For this improvisation I think we’d been listening to Gong, Can, early Ash Ra Tempel, Guru Guru, Cluster and very early Kraftwerk…
The synthesizer sounds used were also used in my set at the first UK Electronica Festival also in 1983, from which there’s no video. This piece is also otherwise unreleased, but I have similar music from around that period on my CD “Analog Archives” available worldwide through Amazon.co.uk and on the CDR “Live Archives” available through www.markjenkins.co
This me like I Feel for You To…
“How the track was put together:
The original Chakakhan version is extremely over produced, so it took me a while to get the same sort of result.
The machine drums at the start, which keeps on running throughout the whole track, was originally done using a DMX, Linn and TR808. All these can now perfectly be recreated inside Reel Machines by XLN-Audio.
I wasn’t really pleased with Reel Machines initially, but having given it a second chance it’s rather convincing and pleasant to work with.
After the rap intro Addictive Drums kick in, to put another layer of drums ontop and to give it a live feel, which I do with all my tracks.
My aim is always to find the middle between the original recording and a live feel.
I could have left Melle Mel rap out, unless I had the original isolated track, but no one has that luxury, so I did it myself.
Only then I realized how difficult that rap was. Not having an American accent and of course Melle’s deeper voice makes it somewhat sound silly, but it’s effective enough (I hope?).
A lot of Prophet-5 and Jupiter-8 was used, especially all the brass sounds.
The harmonica was another difficult thing to replicate.
I used a sample from my TR-Rack.
The Minimoog is completely unprocessed.”
