Sequential Circuits Prophet-600Published on 06/24/10 at 15:54
Sequential Circuits’ Prophet 600 is a vintage analog synthesizer. It’s got a lot of versatility, and is actually a bargain considering the price that these go for used. The keyboard spans about four and a half octaves and it has both pitch and modulation wheels. It’s got pretty standard connections in the back, and this is actually the first synthesizer to have MIDI capabilities!


UTILIZATION

The configuration of the Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 definitely has a good amount going on, but those interested in analog synthesizers certainly know that this will be the case with many analog synthesizers. In fact, that’s a main reason that I love both analog synthesizers in general and......

UTILIZATION

The configuration of the Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 definitely has a good amount going on, but those interested in analog synthesizers certainly know that this will be the case with many analog synthesizers. In fact, that’s a main reason that I love both analog synthesizers in general and the Prophet 600 in particular. The sections of parameters that this synth has to work with includes two oscillators, an in depth filter, and an amplifier, as well as an LFO and a variety of other parameters on the outskirts of the main sections. As is the case with all analog synthesizers, if you’re familiar with these sort of parameters you’ll catch on quickly, but if not you might want to do some research on synths in general.


SOUNDS

The sounds on the Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 are definitely versatile to say the least. In general it certainly sounds like an analog synthesizer, but it isn’t as clean cut as some of the more expensive synths out there like a Moog. There is a whole lot that can be done with the Prophet 600 if you know how to use it, and I’ve really only scratched the surface thus far with it. It’s probably best suited for use in the recording studio since it’s an older synthesizer, but no one would argue if you wanted to use this for gigs.



OVERALL OPINION

For the price that these can be found for used, the Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 is one of the best deals for an analog synthesizer that I’ve seen out there. While definitely not as great sounding as some other analog synths that I’ve used out there, this does have as much versatility as any of them. If you’re looking to get started with analog synths or simply add another color to your collection, you can’t really go wrong with the Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 if you can find it at it’s average price.

" Precision on the Prophet 600"

UTILIZATION

8/10

SOUNDS

Spend quality manufacturing, which was more cheap than the Prophet 5.

The Pro600 does not equal Pro5, there is a safe bet that the filters were not Curtiss. Nevertheless, the 600 delivers a big sound, maybe a little metal relative to Pro5.

The BIG default 600, which is rarely pointed, is the cruel lack of nervousness envelope filter and VCA. It is hard to believe that they were analog ... In my view, they were probably digital and .... coded on 8 bits! There, no attacks and decays as short slap on the Pro5 or MiniMoog but absolutely crippling weakness. Review!
Besides, I have kept a year.

Despite the quality of filters and polymodulation these catastrophic envelopes require me to note 2/10

OVERALL OPINION

I quickly resold.

I must say that I had at the time an Oberheim OB-Xa.

" Hangover ..."

poly synth

UTILIZATION

simple, one button = one function

SOUNDS

its rather aggressive, difficult to make it sound.
The filter is unusable, unless you do not turn the knob while playing the keyboard and all the knobs are very fragile, a synth any plastic not at all pleasant to grind.
The arpeggiator is not fun, I do not see how such a synth can take as much value.
It takes him to bcp effects c .. to catch this side "harsh" and save the furniture.

OVERALL OPINION

I used it for a year. I almost had all analos Polyphonic this time. Not at all endearing. There are better for a few hundred dollars cheaper, you will eventually see you as the spare. ...
