Dave Smith Instruments announced today that the first Sequential Prophet-6, SN 00001, is ready to leave the production floor.
The bad news is…..
SN 00001 is already taken. It’s going to Dave Smith himself.
For fans of classic Sequential Circuits synth designs, though, the fact that Prophet-6 synths are now coming off the production line is great news.
The Sequential Prophet-6 takes the best qualities of the original Prophet-5—true voltage-controlled oscillators, filters, and amplifiers—and adds enhancements, such as studio-quality effects, a polyphonic step sequencer and an arpeggiator. The result, according to Smith, is ‘pure, unadulterated analog tone’, with the reliability of a modern synth.
Details on the new Prophet-6 are available the DSI site.
