Dave Smith Instruments 49-Key 6-Voice Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer with 100% Analog Signal Path

Sequential Prophet-6 is Dave Smith's tribute to the polysynth that started it all: Sequential Circuits Prophet-5. But it's not simply a reissue of a classic; rather, as Dave puts it, 'It's the result of our effort to build the most awesome-sounding, modern analog polysynth possible.' 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.

Classic tone, classic vibe
Central to the warm, punchy sound of Prophet-6 are its two 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.

Dual effects
The dual effects section provides studio-quality reverbs, delays (standard and BBD), chorus and phase shifter. While the effects themselves are digital, with 24-bit, 48 kHz resolution, a true bypass maintains a full analog signal path. There's also an independent stereo distortion effect, which is 100% analog.

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.

Easy to program
The knob-per-function front panel offers instant access to virtually all Prophet-6 functions. Included are 500 permanent factory programs in 10 banks of 100 programs. In addition to these, you can create and save up to 500 user programs of your own. Toggling off the preset button enables live panel mode, in which the sound of the Prophet-6 switches to the current settings of its knobs and switches. In this state, what you see is what you hear.

Easy to play
All of this awe-inspiring sound is packed into a four octave, semi-weighted keyboard with velocity and channel aftertouch that's an ideal combination of portability and power for the project studio or the gigging musician.
