Free Prophet ’08 Ableton Instruments For Ableton Live

Synth guru and sound designer Francis Prève has released a set of free Simpler instruments for Ableton Live, based on the Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 08:

To celebrate hitting 10,000 fans on my Facebook page a couple of weeks back, I took a poll to see what synth in my studio you wanted me to sample next.

The overwhelming response was my beloved Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 08.

Download via Prèves blog.

The Simpler instruments in the file are as follows:

  • P8 Saw – Basic single oscillator Prophet sawtooth.
  • P8 Square – Basic single oscillator Prophet square wave.
  • P8 Pulse – Basic single oscillator Prophet pulse/rectangle wave.
  • P8 2x Fifths – Two octaves of fifth intervals. Super thick and Mau5-ish.
  • P8 Big Octaves – Four octaves of a basic dual-oscillator patch. “Undertaker” and “Ghosts-n-Stuff” fans are gonna love this one.
  • P8 Detuned Saws – One of the hallmark sounds of ALL Prophets.
  • P8 Deep Drone – Big, throbbing detuned bass drone.
  • P8 Sync Sweep – Long slow hard sync sweep with tight short loop at the end. “If you want to have a lot of fun with this patch, start by adjusting the sample start point.”
  • P8 Res Sweep – Resonant sweep with a touch of white noise and a tight loop at the end. As with the Sync Sweep patch, try tinkering with the start point.

  1. Opens fine for me on a Mac. Would’ve been more convenient if it was a LivePack (.alp) instead of a project (.als) though. I also tried the unzip command on Linux and it detected no errors in the zip file.

    Nag, nag :-p
