Sequential Prophet-6 module
Dave Smith Instruments today announced a desktop module version of their Sequential Prophet-6 six-voice analog synthesizer.
Like the keyboard version, this model features an all-analog signal path and discrete VCOs, VCAs, and filters. The knob-per-function front panel is free of menu-diving and offers immediate access to virtually all parameters. A poly chain feature was also added, so that any two Prophet-6s can be paired for 12-voice polyphony.
According to the brand, a key to the vintage sound of the Prophet-6 is its two newly-designed, discrete voltage-controlled oscillators (plus sub-oscillator) and two discrete filters: 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.
The module weighs approximately 13 lbs (5.9 kg) and measures 21.25” L x 7.43” W x 4.4” H (54.0 cm x 18.9 cm x 11.2 cm). “It’s an ideal mix of portability and power,” Smith said.
The Prophet-6 desktop module will be available at the end of November with a projected MAP of $2,199.
