You may begin to feel some side effects: sleep deprivation, sudden inexplicable loss of time and missing appointments, difficulty breathing, skipping meals, excitability and rapid heart-rate. I have the strong feeling these sounds are just scratching the surface of what the A6 is capable. The selected programs represent approximately a decade of programming this beauty. This demo runs through a full range of different sounds condensed into a short time span so please don’t expect a full-on Grammy winning performance here.

“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.”
