Nice one Urs! :D This Sonicstate video is great. Repro-5 really sounds incredibly good. The per-voice distortion section sounds f***ing awesome. :tu:


Ugh, that sonic state guy talks more than the presenters.

I'm not even watching the video. Make it easier on me not to and just wait till the actual 2.8 release.

I think Urs has a cold. ;)

Repro-5 sounds nice by the way. And i don't think Nick Batt talks particularly much. I much prefer reporters asking some knowledged questions, than just let the devs do their presentation routine.
Good synths don't have a sweet spot. They ARE the sweet spot.

Well, the new skin really improves Zebra usability... will add it to my wishlist.

I laughed as Urs was talking about Tangerine Dream who used a synth called a "Prophet 5". Never heard of it! :lol:

Hehehe, the bliss of trying to work around, you know, naming things.

I would love to find a way to say "this synth is inspired by that synth" without making it a possible copyright violation or unfair business.

Here's a tip then. Try "famous five-voice American synthesizer" or "late 70s American polysynth" for Prophet 5. It's what Korg uses in their manual for Kronos. :)

You did well but unintentionally funny ;)

Waiting for the public beta of RePro~5. I would be glad to contribute with some presets in addition to beta testing it :)

As I've said elsewhere, if anyone has the patience and skill to reproduce the original 40 presets for the <insert synth name here> then the patch diagrams are in the original Operations manual.

Last year in a thread at the U-He sub-forum i posted 39 Repro-1 patches based on the Prophet 5 factory patches.
As i do not find the thread at the moment here is the Dropbox link:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/532 ... 1.2016.zip

If i remember correctly i used Arturia Prophet V3 as a reference but also some audio demos of presets in the real thing.

An audio demo using the "P5 Mid Strings" and the Polymind Max 4 Live device to get Repro-1 polyphonic:
IW - Repro-1 - Polymind Demo 01
As an external FX the Lexicon MPX Native Reverb was used (all 5 instances routed into an audio track with the FX).
A Max 4 Live LFO device was used to add a slight random detuning to the "voices". Stereo paning was done in the tracks of Live 9 used for the multiple instances.

As mentioned earlier with Repro-5 this kind of "workaround" will no longer be necessary.

Maybe you can submit them when it's in Beta, unless Urs is getting them done in house. It would just be nice to have them as part of the release. I use the Arturia ones as templates for ideas.
