Prophet 6 Ships

Buying Choices

Dave Smith Instruments/Sequential tells us that they are pleased and excited to announce that the Prophet-6 is now shipping. The first several hundred units have left the factory and are speeding toward dealers even as you read this. They say that demand for the 6-voice analog poly synth has been unprecedented, with many high-profile artists eagerly waiting to put the instrument to immediate use on tour and in the studio.

As Dave put it, "We take great pleasure in creating all of our instruments, but bringing the Prophet-6 to life has been especially satisfying. In many ways it brings my 40-plus years of designing synthesizers full circle. We all felt that building the best-sounding analog poly synth possible would be a fitting tribute to Sequential's most famous instrument -- the Prophet-5, the poly synth that started it all."

The Prophet-6 takes the best qualities of the original Prophet-5 -- true voltage-controlled oscillators, filters, and amplifiers -- and adds enhancements that the original never had, such as stereo outputs, velocity and aftertouch sensitivity, dual digital effects, a high-pass filter, a polyphonic step sequencer, an arpeggiator, and of course, MIDI. DSI says that the result is an instrument vintage analog tone and the stability and reliability of a state-of-the-art modern synth.
