ABOUT based on the first Oasys-concept the Prophecy is made for Performance, the ribbon-wheel combination is a very cool live performance control. the multi synthesis nature (MOSS) of the Prophecy provides combinations of: PM, VPM (FM), subtractive, waveshape and Comb filter-noise. PM: Brass, Reed, Pluck
ABOUT Aus dem damaligen Oasys-Konzept entstanden, der Prophecy mit MOSS bietet vierschiedene Syntheseformen: PM, VPM (FM), waveshape, subtraktiv, und Kammfilter-Noise sowie Kombinationen. Dazu ist das Ribbon auf einem Modrad ein exzellentes Steuerelement für Live-Aktionen. PM: Brass, Reed, Pluck
DETAILS very flexible Synth with lots of fast LFOs and ENVs and synthesis engines like 2 OP FM, comb filter morph from noise to a basic waveform, filter feedback, wave shaping on the oscs (by edge parameter) and pre-filter (clip and reso), physical models need both OSCs., the ribbon on the wheel is also touch sensitive. lots of modulation sources and destinations --- this is one of the first synths,that had several OSC models on board.. and even feedbackable filters! VPM (FM), pm (physical models), sync, waveshaping,comb filters that alled to "morph" from noise to some waveform etc.. lots of ENVs (4) and FILTERs!. and LFOs!! (up to 60hz!) midi syncable. more to come.. interesting ARP'er! very cool: the ribbon/wheel combination allowed perfect control of the sounds, the ribbon is also touch sensitive!
DETAILS sehr flexibler Synthesizer mit schnellen und vielen LFOs und ENVs und sehr vielen unterschiedlichen Modellen, 2 OP FM, Kammfilter noise-morph zwischen Rauschen und einer Wellfenform, Shaping und Formen der Wellenformen zwischen faktisch allen Wellenformen (edge und clip/reso shaper). Das Ribbon auf einem extra-Mod-Rad istauch drucksensitiv. filterfeedback zum andicken. nur die phys. modelle brauchen beide OSCs. alles kann vielfältig moduliert werden! LFO bis ca 60 Hz.
SOUND very experimental comlex evolving Leads and Basses, strange and new sounds, some plastic shimmering also in it..
SOUND sehr experimentelles und modulationsreiches, Leads, Bässe und jeder noch so abgefahrene Klang, etwas plastikschimmer ist aber auch drin.
