Dave Smith Instruments has announced that it is now shipping the Sequential Prophet-6, a new 6-voice analog synthesizer, featuring voltage-controlled oscillators, filters, and amplifiers.
According to Smith, the new instrument is ‘targeted at musicians looking for vintage tone with the reliability of modern technology’.
“The Prophet-6 brings my 40-plus years of designing synthesizers full circle,” says Smith. “We wanted to pay tribute to Sequential’s most famous instrument, the Prophet-5, by building a truly awesome-sounding analog synth with discrete oscillators and filters. I believe we succeeded.”
The Prophet-6 takes the best qualities of the original Prophet-5 — true voltage-controlled oscillators, filters, and amplifiers — and adds enhancements that the original never had, such as stereo outputs, velocity and aftertouch sensitivity, dual digital effects, a high-pass filter, a polyphonic step sequencer, an arpeggiator, and of course, MIDI.
Here are official audio demos:
The Sequential Prophet-6 is available now for US $2,799.
