Improvisation #84 for Poly Evolver Keyboard and Prophet ’08

This improvisation uses a choir patch from the Poly Evolver Keyboard for both melodic and harmonic applications. It’s an opportunity to hear how well the patch serves for single lines, rather than only the typical immense triads.

The Prophet ’08’s accompany the PEK or play solo, using either a reed organ patch or a bi-timbral patch having a dark flute chorus on one layer and a mixture of swirling shrill tones on the other. The latter layer is processed with an abundance of reverb to soften its shrillness, and to make it sound more dreamy. This is one of the obvious advantages of using the Output B jacks – the layers can be differently panned and processed. In addition, the volume of the mixture layer is altered at the mixer while I play, so that the Layer B increases in volume as the piece progresses.
