The Last Prophet 5 is our first official add-on for the Sequential Prophet X and XL analog hardware synthesizers – featuring the Prophet 5.
We had the pleasure of deep-sampling the last Prophet 5 ever made, which is also Dave Smiths personal unit (unit number 6427 / rev 1.3). We sampled every single program and some extras in the greatest fidelity possible – using an advanced signal chain of Jensen and Cinematic transformer pre-amps. The end result is over 135 different instruments and a total of over 3.850 Prophet 5 vintage samples. The samples not only cover all the original patches, but also raw state oscillators in different states (ex.Pulse 1-3, Saw, Sawtooth, Saw 5ths, Square, Sync 1-2, Triangle, Triangle Dirty, Noise 1-2, Noise Circuit, Noise HPF etc” etc).
We wanted to preserve the most accurate fidelity of the original Prophet 5, which meant custom designing the signal chain used for the recordings. The Last Prophet 5 was deep-sampled using a signal chain specifically assembled to preserve vintage synth recordings – using a blend of JDI transformers, Cinemag Transformers going go into customized RME A/D converters. The end-result is a true life-like experience- and the most accurate sample representation of the Prophet 5. This add-on will soon be followed up by several other exclusive Prophet X and XL add-ons, including CP-70, Prophet T8, Arp2600, OBX and over dozens of others.
Hope you enjoy this true vintage experience on your Prophet X & XL.
