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.
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.
