Arturia - Prophet V

Imagine... You’re looking at your computer screen and within two clicks you find exact recreations of two of the most influential analogue and digital synths existing in the 1980’s:

the Prophet 5
Then, with another click, you find a perfect fusion of both of these; an instrument giving you a remarkable spectrum of timbres ranging from the digital crystalline to the warmth of analog.

With the PROPHET V, you no longer have to imagine.

Arturia has taken the FIRST and LAST synthesizers created by Sequential Circuits and brought them to you in an easy to use software format. As with all other soft-synths created by Arturia, we bring you a replica of the Prophet 5 and VS both visually and sonically. Using the PROPHET V will be second nature for all you old-pros, and if you’re new to the synthesizers, the only thing you’ll miss by not having the hardware versions is the workout from transporting them to the studio. Since the PROPHET V is designed with Arturia’s TAE® technology, you can be sure you won’t give up sound quality. Click here to read more about the improvements we’ve made in TAE® especially for the PROPHET V.

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 goodies 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 Arturia's Prophet V, we 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 you an entirely new world of possibilities.
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. Our reproduction of Subtractive synthesis with TAE® guarantees the sound quality of the instrument.

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.

In the Prophet 5 you will find:

* Compatibility with the presets of the original synthesizer
* 2 analogue oscillators (TAE® technology)
* 1 white noise module
* 1 low pass resonance filter
* 2 ADSR envelopes
* 1 LFO
* Poly Mod section (which allows you to apply FM on oscillator A and on the filter)

Arturia adds two more options to the original synth with a monophonic mode and the sustain.

Here are a few sound clips with the Prophet 5 to give you a glimpse at your musical possibilities:

* Prophet5 Big Lead
* Prophet5 Brass
* Prophet5 Phil Pad
* Prophet5 bass
