You can't go wrong with a Tempest, it's a fantastic little thing.


Well... It's a bit underspecced in the MIDI department still I think, but at least it will recieve full sysex dumps from the outside world... it should suit my needs for an editor until Pym gets down to implementing better specs.... if...


If you want a full or even basic midi implementation don't buy the Tempest.

I wouldn't even attempt to try to make an editor for it, it is a pleasure to program from the device itself though, I think I prefer it to the P12 module for programming.

@BogTheDog:

That's what I've been thinking about... the interface... if it's good for quick editing of sounds, but that's almost impossible to analyze from looking at pictures, so it has been intuition that governed my feelings on that.

If it's better than the P12 module programming it cannot be bad, as that's probably one of the easiest I've seen (very much like the old Ensoniq ESQ-1/80).

What is an absolute MUST for me is that I can browse single sounds intuitively in a beat... most drummachines work with kits, which are a pain in the neck to copy/paste from... I'm almost always not satisfied with all the drums in a kit, so I need to be able to browse a "drumslot" quickly for the drumsound I feel fits. If the interface of the Tempest allow for this, then I could probably live without an editor in sounddiver as long as the editor is fast to use.

But I'm almost certain that even if the SysEx dumps are compressed, that I can make a Sound browser in SoundDiver, which is really the most important use, a this allows for as pool of Sounds a large as I want.

So I'm probably getting a Tempest anyway... but until then, I'm using my Jomox Airbase99 and it's individual outs instead.

Hi Razmo,

Browsing sounds is easy, In Pad mode select the pad you want to change the sound for, then the right most encoder above the display lets you choose the sound, the encoder to its left lets you choose the folder. There are Folders for Kicks, Snares, HiHats, Toms, Cymbals, Percussion, Noise, Bass, Lead, Misc, and 4 user folders. Sounds are ordered alphabetically in each folder. Sounds are immediately loaded as you scroll through them.

Thanks for the info... well that sort of settles it then doesn't it? :) ... still hope for better MIDI specs though.

Nice to see that you despite the workload found time for a little living room dancing while making a nice demo. That sequencer looks like a master piece. Great work, DSI!

PS: Look forward to see how large the module version will be and how much it will cost! Would be cool with a side by side photo of the Prophet 12 and Pro2 voice boards!

Nice one, thanks! I really enjoyed the sounds. Hybrid at its best I'd say. I really like the character the new filters add to the digital oscillators. Sounds a bit fluffier than the Evolver, which I mean in the most positive way.

Yep, that doesn't sound like my P12 that's for sure.
