There are three interfaces in the Prophet V: Prophet 5, Prophet VS, and Hybrid mode. The Prophet 5 and Prophet VS emulations have all the features of the originals (5 voice polyphony, white noise modulators, dynamic waveform crossfading with joystick, etc). You can even import any existing preset banks from the original synthesizers in a format called SysEx sound data. This data was one of the truly unique attributes of the original synthesizers because it allowed musicians to save their presets for one of the first times ever. With the Prophet V, Arturia say that they have respected this spirit by allowing you to use the presets you've already created in the original synthesizer while playing the synthesizer in its software counterpart.
The Hybrid mode is both synthesizers stacked one on top of the other offering an entirely new world of possibilities.
Arturia tell us that the virtual emulation offered in the Prophet V is an exact replica of the original instrument and uses the same subtractive synthesis model. Subtractive synthesis refers to the filtering of sounds in a specific way in order to create harmonically rich waveforms and new timbres.
The Prophet V carries all of the original parameters, and the 40 original presets of the Prophet 5. The potentiometers or switches associated to these 54 parameters will permit you to create an infinite variety of sounds that were native to the original synthesizer.
Main Prophet 5 Features
The Prophet VS uses wave table or vector oscillators. In this type of synthesis, the oscillator waveforms are digitally stored in a table which the user can freely select, depending on the texture of the sound that is required. With the VS you can recreate that classic 80â€™s wave table synthesis sound within your computer. There are 96 digitally sampled waveform types at your fingertips. Use up to 4 oscillators simultaneously and mix them in real time by sweeping the joystick or the 5 point envelope. The Prophet VS brings you a unique sound that has the strength to stand on its own, but at the same time is complementary to that of the Prophet 5.
Main Prophet VS Features
In Hybrid mode Arturia believe they have brought something extra special. Hybrid mode provides a combination of the Prophet 5 and Prophet VS stacked one on top of the other. Thus an entirely new sound palette to mix and blend will be at your disposal: the analogue subtractive synthesizer in the Prophet 5 AND the digital wave-table or vector synthesizer of the Prophet VS.
