We are incredibly excited to announce the T8 Add-On pack, our fifth official Add-On pack for Sequential Prophet X & XL Hardware Synthesizers.
The Prophet T8 was one of Sequential’s flagship instruments created in the early 80s featuring a pure analog architecture. Its substantial full size weighted keyboard combined with its range of features, from MIDI integration, velocity, aftertouch, sequencer, and a variety of keyboard modes (Single/Split/Double/Unison) made it a milestone in technology and instrument innovation alike.
One of its main selling points, other than its unique and powerful sound capabilities, was its high-quality velocity sensitive keys featuring polyphonic aftertouch (pressure activated modulation after a key is struck). These features separated it from other synths at the time and made it an extraordinarily nuanced and expressive instrument. Almost 35 years later these features coupled with weighted keys can be experienced once again with the Prophet XL.
The T8’s top of the line analog sound goes without saying as being a vital feature of the instrument, its diverse range and character have stood the test of time, making the instrument almost as iconic as its predecessor, the Prophet 5.
The Prophet T8 is considered one of the finest polyphonic analog synthesizers ever made, and with only 800 units produced the T8 has become a highly sought after luxury synthesizer by many synth enthusiasts and pro musicians.
The T8 Add-On is sampled with astonishing detail and laid out in the same intuitive format as our other Add-On packs, allowing you to access the full range of sounds easily, create entirely new instruments and presets or combine with existing sounds for unlimited variety.
We didn’t just sample any Prophet T8; we sampled Dave Smiths very own hardware unit. Being one of the best maintained T8’s in existence we were able to capture its iconic Prophet tone and the full range of every single original factory preset.
You can now combine the iconic sounds of this synthesizer with the latest features of your Prophet X or XL.
Stay tuned for more exclusive Prophet X & XL add-ons coming soon, including the Legendary Jupiter-4 (JP-4).
We hope you enjoy this authentic vintage experience on your Prophet X & XL.
