When Sequential introduced the new Prophet-5 & Prophet-10, one of the first things people wondered was how they compared to other Sequential synths, like the Prophet-6.
In this video, synthesist Julian Pollack answers that question, taking a deep dive into key differences between the Sequential Prophet 5/Prophet 10 (Rev 4) Reissue and the Sequential Prophet 6.
The video focuses on the sound and functionality of the two synthesizers; where they differ and where they overlap.

The two synthesizers were recorded directly into Pro Tools at 48khz with Universal Audio Apollo preamps. No external FX were used in the recording of the sounds, unless where noted in the video. The two synths were leveled in terms of gain as carefully as possible to create the most unbiased listening environment.
