Sequential Prophet 6

Dave Smith Instruments Sequential Prophet 6


The Sequential Prophet 6 Desktop Module is a brand new addition the Prophet 6 series which features the huge sound and versatility of the Prophet-6 synth but now in a compact desktop module. With two newly designed voltage controlled oscillators (plus sub oscillator), two filters and voltage controlled amplifiers the Prophet 6 Module combines power and portability to produce your new favourite synth module.

Vintage with a Modern Twist
The 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, an arpeggiator, and more. The result is pure, unadulterated analog tone with the stability and reliability of a state-of-the-art modern synth module.

Classic Tone, Classic Vibe
Central to the warm, punchy sounds of the Prophet-6 are its two newly-designed, discrete voltage-controlled oscillators (plus sub-oscillator) per voice. Continuously variable waveshapes provide the tonal palette with triangle, sawtooth, and variable-width pulse waves. There are two discrete filters per voice-a four-pole, resonant, low-pass inspired by the original Prophet-5 filter, and a two-pole, resonant, high-pass filter. Voltage-controlled amplifiers complete the all-analog signal path.

Poly Mod and Poly Step Sequencing

Also present from its classic predecessor is a Poly Mod section, with enhancements. True to the original, modulation sources are filter envelope and oscillator 2 (both with bi-polar control). Destinations include oscillator 1 frequency, oscillator 1 shape, oscillator 1 pulse width, low-pass filter cutoff, and high-pass filter cutoff. Another welcome reprise is Unison mode, which features configurable voice count (1-6 voices) and key modes. The polyphonic step sequencer allows up to 64 steps and up to 6 notes per step. You can create sequences polyphonically, with rests, and sync to an external MIDI clock. The full-featured arpeggiator can be synced to external MIDI clock as well.
