Improvisation #109: Prophet ’08 Organ Patch

You can purchase some of my material on Bandcamp:

This patch from the Prophet ’08 isn’t intended to perfectly emulate an actual pipe organ, but only to resemble one. As different as it is, the patch allows me to play liturgical organ music, or an improvised prelude type piece such as this one. I’ve always thought the P’08 served superbly well as a substitute for a true organ.

Improvisation #108 for Poly Evolver Keyboard and Prophet ’08

You can purchase some of my material on Bandcamp:
https://themusicalsynthesizer.bandcamp.com/

This piece is a more expansive improvisation from the previous session and follows some of the same musical ideas. The Prophet ’08 pair provide a flute chorus type patch, with the pulse slightly off from a strict square position and slightly modulated. The Poly Evolver provides the string patch. Oh yes, there are bass pedals used this time. There must be bass pedals!

Instrumentation:
DSI Poly Evolver Keyboard
DSI Poly Evolver Rack
DSI Prophet ’08 Keyboard
DSI Prophet ’08 Module

Bass: Hammond XPK 200L Pedalboard
