Sequential Prophet 6 Analogue Synthesizer

Original price was: €2,700.Current price is: €1,990.

The Sequential Prophet 6 Dave Smith synthesizer is an unmistakably 21st century instrument in an authentic ’70s outfit. The future is now and it’s analogue! The control elements are affectionately reminiscent of its muse: the Sequential Circuits Prophet 5, which is pretty unique, since a retro push button, nestled between all those LEDs usually found on the face of new synthesizers, is pretty hard to come by. Any self-respecting sound-designer would happily offer up their right arm to have this brand new Prophet 6 as part of their stage or studio set-up.

Sequential Prophet 6: Sonic Potential
In its core, this is a very accessible 6-voice synthesizer, with two oscillators per voice, augmented by a sub-octave oscillator and a white noise oscillator. The classic wave shapes, including sawtooth, square wave, triangle, pulse, and hard-sync ensure the necessary sound variation. Besides a 24 dB low-pass filter, this synth also has a 12 dB high-pass filter and 49 semi-weighted touch-sensitive keys with after touch that feel amazing!

Old Meets New
Even though the Prophet 6 was inspired by its predecessor, the Prophet 5, it can in no way be dismissed as a re-issue or replica. The ‘P6’ has MIDI and USB-MIDI, as well as backlit pitch and modulation wheels; contemporary features found on most recently released synths. It’s sound might be described as a 70s built synth, literally looking deep into the future. It delivers analogue warmth with a subtle bend in pitch, augmented with a rich choice of effects that owners of the P5 could only have dreamt of. Adjust the volume and LPF with the optional expression pedals and start and stop the step sequencer with a further (optional) dedicated footwitch. In short, this synth offers a wealth of possibilities from the past and present that will keep proving their worth well into the future.

The Story of Dave Smith, Sequential, Yamaha and Roland
Way back in the world of synthesizers and under Dave Smith’s leadership, Sequential Circuits was busy setting the tone. The Prophet S5 from 1978 was one of the very first polyphonic synthesizers with patch memory. Later, Dave went on to produce contemporary analogue synthesizers under his own name, Dave Smith Instruments, and still does. Recently, Yamaha – who had owned the old Sequential Circuits brand name since 1987 – gave the name back to Dave Smith on the recommendation of Roland’s CEO. In a fiercely competitive music industry, you don’t see this kind of generosity every day and asa direct result, Sequential Circuits have dropped the ‘circuits’ and relaunched as ‘Sequential’. The Prophet 6 is a warmly welcomed and tangible offering from a deeply respected and experienced company and brings the past right up to the present.
