The company says that the updates ‘significantly enhance the expressivity of both instruments’.
Here’s what’s new:
- Support for MPE (MIDI Polyphonic Expression). This lets the Prophet-6 and OB-6 respond to MPE-driven controllers, including the LinnStrument, Expressive E Osmose, Roli Seaboard series and others.
- Prophet-5 Rev 4-style “vintage” mode. This gives the Prophet-6 and OB-6 a ‘looser, more organic sound’ that emulates the behavior of vintage synthesizers, where the behavior of individual oscillators, filters, and envelopes vary from voice to voice.
- Improved aftertouch curves for enhanced expressiveness, when using the Prophet-6 and OB-6’s own keyboard.
