The Sequential - Prophet 6 is the updated version of a classic synth and also the start of the new company reacquired by Dave Smith Instruments. The synth restores the sound of the company's signature synths, and it is also updated with modern digital effects and an unbeatable easy-to-use interface. ÿ


A CLASSIC — ENHANCED

The Sequential Prophet-6 takes the best qualities of the original Prophet-5—true voltage-controlled oscillators, filters, and amplifiers—and adds 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.

"The Prophet-6 is a tribute to the original poly synth that started it all — the Sequential Prophet-5. But more importantly, it’s the culmination of our effort to built the most awesome-sounding, modern analog poly synth possible.” — Dave Smith, Founder, Dave Smith Instruments and Sequential

PROPHET-6 SPECS

LOW-PASS FILTER

Four-pole, resonant, low-pass filter per voice, inspired by the original Prophet-5 filter
Filter can be driven into self-oscillation with the Resonance control
Bi-polar filter envelope amount
Velocity modulation of envelope amount
Keyboard tracking: off, half, full
POLY MOD

Sources: filter envelope (bi-polar) and oscillator 2 (bi-polar)
Destinations: oscillator 1 frequency, oscillator 1 shape, oscillator 1 pulse width, low-pass filter cutoff, high-pass filter cutoff
EFFECTS

Stereo analog distortion
Dual, 24-bit, 48 kHz digital effects, including: reverb (room, hall, plate, spring), delay (full bandwidth digital delay and emulated bucket brigade and tape delays), chorus, and phase shifter
Delay sync
True bypass maintains fully analog signal path when digital effects are off
SEQUENCER

Polyphonic step sequencer with up to 64 steps and rests
PATCH MEMORY

500 user and 500 factory programs in 10 banks of 100 programs each
Direct program access, including Prophet-5 style single-button access to the current set of 10 programs
PERFORMANCE CONTROLS

Full-sized, semi-weighted, 4-octave keyboard with velocity and aftertouch
Backlit pitch and mod wheels
Spring-loaded pitch wheel with selectable range per program (1 to 12 semitones up and down)
Transpose controls for an 8-octave range
Hold switch latches held notes on
Polyphonic glide (portamento)
Unison (monophonic) mode with configurable voice count, from one to all six voices, and key modes
Preset switch: when off, the front panel is live; what you see is what you hear
