My Prophet 64 cartridge arrived today. The program is a suite of applications featuring a fully-fledged sequencer, mono synth, bass synth and a drum machine for the Commodore 64. The whole thing comes across as highly professional.
Finally, I have had a quick chance to check it out. I played around with the sequencer for a short while, and I must say I am very impressed. It sounds great (of course) but offers heaps of flexibility and control over sound whilst still being an intuitive interface. You can listen to a crappy example I made here (344kb).
The only bad thing is that the commodore amiga mouse I ordered on ebay does not seem to work with the commodore - I need to find another one so that I can see which device it is. So in the meantime I have been using a sega megadrive controller instead. Does not work half as well as I would expect a mouse to, but it is a start.
