New: Sequential Prophet XL hybrid synthesizer
Everybody’s heard of Dave Smith. One of the pioneers of MIDI technology and digital synthesis wizard has his name on many iconic pieces of music gear - Prophet, Tempest, Mopho just to name few. This year Dave Smith Instruments rebranded as Sequential (Smith ‘s first company founded in 1974) continue to work on their flagship product – Prophet synth.
Prophet XL – is a new hybrid synthesizer which offers a fusion of synthesis and samples in one single device. 2 independent sound engines offer unseen capabilities for this type of gear. One engine is meant for digital synthesis and has everything previous Prophet models were praised for: 2 high-resolution digital oscillators, 4 syncable LFOs, 4 loopable five-stage envelope generators and dozens of other sound shaping possibilities. Another sound engine is dedicated for sampled instruments and allows to play two independent, stereo, digitally sampled instruments per voice while shaping samples through loop manipulation, sample stretching and other sound modulation functions. Prophet XL comes with 150 GB of internal sample content created by 8Dio and has another 50 GB of free space for any additional instruments. Worth to mention that sounds from both audio engines are processed through additional FX processor and vintage design analog filters. Not that common polyphonic step sequencer can play up to 6 notes per step. 76-key semi-weighted keyboard, 3 OLED displays, Velocity and Channel Aftertouch control and many other features are packed in this one of the kind instrument build for the studio or a stage - Sequential Prophet XL.
