I made this little doodle last night using the new unison modes.

All P12 with some reverb, sampled drums

Strange, I don't see the link in the post, yet when I quote it, it's clearly there. Nice doodle! You really have a knack for making that resonance sound juicy.

Thank you! Yes for some reason it wasn't showing up, so I put the regular link underneath.

To me the character section really shines with the new selectable unison modes

I've yet to try out those new unison modes as when I had the time they had already taken down that buggy os update. It's up now though, eh? I'll see if I can try it out later.

What kind of keybed does the Prophet 12 use?

I thought it was a Fatar, but it's quite different from the Prophet 6.
the Prophet 6 is a lot more soft and buttery, where as the 12 is relatively more clackey and plastic.
Anyone else notice this?
are all Fatar keybeds made equal?

The P6 needs a more softer and butteriery keyboard because it's a true analog synth. The P12 is mostly digital, so the keyboard needs to be more plasticier and klacky. Just more proof that anything analog is a million times better than anything digital.

Released a new song with a music video. Did loads of Prophet 12 goodness in it.

really impressed with DSI customer support. Pym is on the forums responding to feedback on the regular and it's really encouraging. New OS pushes the delays closer to where they were in the big linear FM update. Can't wait to try it out.

It's hard to keep up with the recent OS upgrades. Really excellent stuff.

Also, I've been meaning to mention this, but getting the P6 has made me appreciate the P12 all the more. They are a great point/counterpoint to one another.

At first I was all, "New unison modes? So what?" Then it hit me. LAYERS! Fun. Turned a crappy "All Powerful Prophet" preset into something really fun with a split.

Also, I now have a perfectly working delay!

This might shock some people but I sold my Prophet VS to get a Prophet 12 and am pretty happy that I did. Just what I was looking for in a new synth. I just wish I had more time to play with it.

I've heard this through two different sources now, really inspiring that you've picked one up! Can't wait to hear what you create with it.

Thanks, me too. Between the Prophet 12 and a friend of mine giving me his Kyma system on long term loan I have a lot of work cut out for me, but it should be fun. Looking forward to seeing where this takes me.

Both great synths. I would love to own a VS but hesitate over repair if something breaks as I understand there is some unobtanium in there. I ended up buying a Poly Evolver instead of a VS for that reason (not the same animal, I acknowledge, but there is some shared DNA).

Yep, that's why I sold it. It'd a great sounding synth but was getting a bit long in the tooth, plus I never really liked the interface that much. I'm not interested anymore in having a synth museum, time for some new stuff.

Yeah - zero knobs (other than master volume and L/R balance) and one slider is a poor cousin to the knobgasm that is the Pro 12. Once the DX-7 hit and sold like crazy it took like 20 years before synth designers figured out that interface was crap. I hear you on "synth museum".

Still, a truly classic and awesome instrument. I was 16 when it came out, owned my first synth - a used Prophet 600 bought relatively cheaply because the DX7 was already taking over the market - and got a summer job in a music store in the accounts receivable department that summer. Even with my 10 or 15% discount as an employee I couldn't afford the VS but I played it every day at lunch all summer and only girls held more interest.

Before you do, throw the latest OS update in and give it a spin. 2 different delay flavors plus Linear FM plus a bunch of other bug fixes and nice to have features added.

Thanks for sharing, so many things in this video that I like: The music, car, city, night, lady, ice cream!

this is an exciting month for Pro12 owners and fans of ambient electronic music. Loren Nerell picked one up a bit ago and just received word that another electronic music legend, and perhaps the most important artist in my life, just added it to his studio. _Really_ excited to hear what these two artists create with this instrument!!!

Not yet, unless he picked one up in the last couple of days. I spoke with him last week, he got a prophet but it wasn't a 12, maybe soon though.

I was in a local Guitar Center the other day and they had the P12 module for $1499. Its not used either. I am super tempted. I want to sell some stuff before or if I pull the trigger on it. We'll see.

That is a good deal indeed.

I'm currently waiting to see if my wife gets relocated. If she does I'll have to probably sell my keyboard and buy a module instead. I might be able to make it work if I make the 12 my main MIDI controller though...
