Sequential Prophet X Bi-Timbral Synthesizer


    Get A New Generation Of Synth Innovation With The Sequential Prophet X Synthesizer

      Now shipping with OS 2.0 - free download available to current owners. Significant features include:

      • 32-voice performance mode doubles the polyphony for single instrument/oscillator sounds.
      • In 16-voice mode, sampled instruments can now play in stereo
      • Arpeggiator/Sequencer MIDI out can now drive other sound modules
      • There are new “forward/reverse” Looping modes 
      • Ring Modulation is available as an effect
      • Hack and Decimate effects (bit/sample rate reduction) can be modulated
      • Velocity/pressure curves, alternative tunings can all be saved per program

      The Sequential Prophet X is a new, bi-timbral, 8-voice-stereo (16-voice mono) synthesizer that combines samples and synthesis. At the heart of its sound is a newly developed engine that powers two simultaneous 16-bit, 48kHz sample-based instruments plus two highresolution digital oscillators with waveshape modulation — all processed through analog filters.

      Dave Smith commented: “The Prophet X is a powerful evolution of the Prophet series. Musicians have been asking for samples through real analog flters for a long time. We’ve given them not only that, but also all of the synthesis capabilites and awesome sound you’d expect from a Prophet.”

      For sample content, Sequential turned to acclaimed sound developers 8Dio, known for pioneering “deep sampling,” a detailed approach to sampling that aims to capture all of the nuances and idiosyncracies of a particular sound or instrument. 8Dio co-founder Troels Folmann put it this way: “We’re known for going anywhere and everywhere with sounds. We embrace all sounds as music and feel that if you can capture the musical soul of a sound, you can make it into an instrument. The Prophet X gives musicians a very immediate and responsive way to access this expressiveness.”

      The 150 GB sample library in the Prophet X includes numerous acoustic and electronic instruments as well as an extensive collection of ambient and cinematic effects. Users can shape the samples through loop manipulation, sample stretching, and the synthesizer’s many sound-sculpting functions which include 4 envelope generators, 4 LFOs, a deep modulation matrix, and other tools. The Prophet X also provides 50 gigabytes of internal storage for importing additional samples. Several sample libraries will be available from 8Dio at launch. Support for user-created sample content is planned for December, 2018.

      A dual-effects engine provides multiple reverbs, two delays (standard and BBD), a chorus, flanger, phase shifter, rotating speaker, high-pass filter, and distortion. In stacked or split voice mode, you can apply two different effects to each layer. Effects parameters can be modulated through the mod matrix as can the samples themselves. A polyphonic step sequencer allows up to 64 steps and up to 6 notes per step, per layer. The Prophet X features a premium-quality, five-octave, semi-weighted keyboard with velocity and channel aftertouch, an integrated power supply, USB support, and three OLED displays.

      Dave Smith summed up the new instrument: “Composers will love the Prophet X for soundtracks and synth geeks will love it for its sound mangling potential. But it’s really for everyone because it covers such a wide range of sounds. The new analog filter design we’re using is not only fantastic for synth sounds, but also does something special for the samples.” Added 8Dio co-founder Tawnia Knox: “The Prophet X has almost infinite posibilites. But more importantly,it has a soul. It’s alive. You can touch your sounds in a different way than you ever could.”

    Fantastic customer service

    This was my first time buying from Chuck Levin’s and I was very impressed. I worked with Denar and his communication and quick responses were great. Great price and quick shipping. Will definitely be going back.
