Coffeeshopped Announces update to PATCH BASE, Supporting Classic KORG Prophecy Physical Modeling Synthesizer
AUSTIN, Texas /Music Industry Newswire/ — Chadwick Wood of Coffeeshopped announced this week an update to PATCH BASE, supporting the classic “KORG Prophecy” Physical Modeling Synthesizer. Patch Base for Mac (v1.15) and iPad (v3.21) now include editors and librarians for the Korg Prophecy, a virtual analog lead/monophonic synth released in 1995.
According to Wood, “I’d been hoping to come across one for quite awhile, and thankfully a generous fellow Texan named Jesús Navarro contacted me awhile back to offer some of his gear for testing and development! Many thanks to Jesús. This synth is capable of a wide variety of sounds, especially due to its different oscillator models, including some physical models of wind and plucked instruments. Lots of fun to be had for sound design.”
The Voice editor shows all of the voice parameters in 4 pages. To the right of these pages are the Envelope and LFO editors, which are always visible for editing, as they are used for modulation across every part of a voice. The Osc page has oscillator-related settings. Using the “Osc Set” parameter you choose which of the 7 oscillators models to use (Standard, Comb Filter, VPM, Mod, Brass, Reed, and Pluck). Each oscillator model has its own individual control page, shown based on which model you’ve selected.
The Filter/Amp page have all the parameters for your 2 filters and 2 amplifiers all laid out on a single screen. Above those are some general voice settings such as Portamento and Scale settings.
* Save your patches and banks as files on your iPad or Mac: Patch Base saves files as sysex that can be sent to your synth by Patch Base or any general-purpose sysex transfer app.
* Organize your sounds: Create folders to organize your patches and banks.
* iCloud integration: Optionally use iCloud to make your patch files accessible on any iCloud-connected device, and to automatically sync files between Patch Base on Mac and iPad.
* Import sysex files: Import existing patch and bank sysex files to Patch Base. On Mac, simply drop your files into the Patch Base browser. On iPad, easily import using iCloud or the Files app.
