  • What is making this change?

    What is modified in the opening chord of this? Filter? Resonance? Pitch?

    Filter cutoff. Resonance is very high and that gives the whistly character.

      Thanks! Now I just need to get this programmed in my PC3.

        Can anyone ID the synth in the video? The best look at it is around 0:57. I can't figure out what it is.

        Whatever it is, it has rather horrendous stair-stepping in the cutoff knob, if that's what was used for that opening sound...

          I started watching the video to see what they are playing until I noticed they weren't even PLAYING.

          But you're right. The cutoff change is BAD.

            "Let It Whip" came out in 1982, what synths had digital parameter controls then (Prophet, what else?).

              Its a P5, with the common "mod" of making a tape visor over the program number LED readout so you can see it under stage lights.

                Isn't the 'stepping' just filter resonating with harmonics of the underlying tone?

                I think there is a critical amount of resonance where some filters will 'ring' only at resonant frequencies... sweeping the filter produces discrete pitches. If you turn up the resonance further, then it will whistle at all frequencies.

                  I think it also might be a Prophet 10, because it looks like the keyboardist has his left hand on a lower manual. Also, from the camera pointed at the stage, the synth looks very deep.

                  It also could be stack on a Rhodes or something.

                    P10 does not have that wood panel above the keys, it's a P5. And yes it is on a Rhodes.

                      I guess you're right, it is a P5. It's hard to tell with only one angle shot at the keyboardist. That said, the bass line sounds like a P5.

                      Don't know about that resonant filter sweep, it seems to be to "steppy". Maybe they had just gotten their paws on a Prophet 600 for the recording...
