The Good News Is – The First Sequential Prophet-6 Is Here

sequential-circuits-prophet-6

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.

      1. You ever see that Bugs Bunny cartoon with “Dog pile on the rabbit!”? Never stand up in front of musicians and say you have money. That is like standing in front of actors and saying you have food. You will be lucky to come away with your fingers.

  1. The bad news is I do not have a space for this.

    The good news is that some of the space I have is filled with a Pro 2, P’12, and P’08 PE rack.

  2. Waiting for Prophet 6 rack version, and hoping it will have all the buttons and controls like my Prophet’08 rack does (let’s say I’m not crazy about P12 rack user interface). In any case great news from Sequential (…if only Moog would make a polyphonic that we mortals could afford….)

  3. I have the P12 and love it , I really don’t see the need for this myself , but a analogue purest will no doubt… it is a lovely synth though

  4. I would buy this as a 5 (or more) octave keyboard only – i.e. not a module or The current 4-octave module.

    Yes I understand I can control it with a bigger keyboard, but for jamming and improvising I think a synth this powerful deserves room for both hands on the keyboard, without the hassle of setting it up with a controller.

    3-4 octaves is fine for monosynths and even 4-note polys, but 6-note synths call for more.
