In the latest Sonic State Sonic Lab, synth guru Nick Batt takes an in-depth look at the recently introduced Sequential Pro 3.
Sequential calls this the Pro 3 the best analog mono synth that they’ve ever made. It’s the spiritual successor to the classic Pro-One, but it expands on the original in about every way possible, while retaining the original’s beefy sound and hands-on tweakability.
Batt says it “sounds really good” – check out the video and let us know what you think in the comments!

Wow, what a beautiful beast. Everything I learned once I got a big Korg workstation has gradually been farmed out to external gear like iPads, exotic pedals, my DAW & boggling modules. I sure understand GAS, but OTOH, with 2 or 3 instruments like this, you’re majorly covered. If the Pro 3 fit what I do, I’d be patching the crap out of it for a year.
It looks really good.
It could be the next minimoog….
that would be the Matriarch. 🙂
isnt the matriarch poly
matriarch is poly
Great synth. I wish I could afford it.
I’m waiting impatiently for sonic state reviews! don’t trust anyone else.
Nick should use a foot switch to swap between cameras instead of reaching under the table all of the time…
I did try that, but its really easy to hit the wrong footswitch…
Hi Nick… I know the feeling… I always hit the wrong guitar pedal when I’m on lead vocals… I’m singing into the mic and looking at the audience while fumbling around with my foot trying to find the right switch 😎
thats not a footswitch 🙂
but whats the difference between this and the sequential x?
By the way; have you made a video on Synth-speakers?
I really need some tips on what to buy.
And tips on how to best set up lots of synths for interface like UAD apollo quad.
Obviously a magnificent synth. A different league to the original Pro1. I think Nick admires it rather than loves it?
Nice review! Yep, it does sound really good!
“It sounds really good!”
lol, so does my access virus snow, and its POLYPHONIC… which brings us to:
> the best analog mono synth
oxymoron alarm! in times of polyphonic virtual analog synths, there is no such thing as “a best analog mono synth”. EVERY analog mono synth is a loser imo.
It’s a shame that it’s no longer updated, and you can’t use it on newer macs
Never mind. If you could have created a sentence that actually contained an oxymoron we could have put more weight to your comments on the quality of the snow. Hint, virtual synths are not analogue. You can have a best analogue mono and a best VA- they are different things. The choice on what is best is another question and not one i worry about
So cool to have you here 🙂
The Prophet Rev2 8 voice is EUR100.00 cheaper. That would be a tough call if I had the money…
I have the Pro3 SE and the Rev2 16voice. I do love my Rev2, but I LOVE my Pro3. Pro3 is so much more now, it sounds not just good or nice: it sounds FANTASTIC!!! Paraphonic is a great system, has even some advantages over polyphonic imo…..
