Dave Smith Instruments just introduced the new Sequential Prophet 6 at NAMM 2015. Watch the demo video above made by Dave himself.

OSCILLATORS

  • Continuously variable wave shape (triangle, sawtooth, pulse, square) per oscillator
  • Pulse width per oscillator
  • Hard sync: oscillator 1 syncs to oscillator 2
  • Triangle sub-octave generator (oscillator 1) per voice
  • Low frequency mode (oscillator 2)
  • Keyboard tracking on/off (oscillator 2)
  • Oscillator slop amount for increased tuning instability, from subtle to extreme

MIXER

  • Oscillator 1 amount
  • Oscillator 1 sub-octave amount
  • Oscillator 2 amount
  • White noise amount

HIGH-PASS FILTER

  • 2-pole, resonant, high-pass filter per voice
  • Bi-polar filter envelope amount
  • Velocity modulation of envelope amount
  • Keyboard tracking: off, half, full

LOW-PASS FILTER

  • Four-pole, resonant, low-pass filter per voice, inspired by the original Prophet-5 filter
  • Filter can be driven into self-oscillation with the Resonance control
  • Bi-polar filter envelope amount
  • Velocity modulation of envelope amount
  • Keyboard tracking: off, half, full

POLY MOD

  • Sources: filter envelope (bi-polar) and oscillator 2 (bi-polar)
  • Destinations: oscillator 1 frequency, oscillator 1 shape, oscillator 1 pulse width, low-pass filter cutoff, high-pass filter cutoff

EFFECTS

  • Stereo analog distortion
  • Dual, 24-bit, 48 kHz digital effects, including: reverb (room, hall, plate, spring), delay (full bandwidth digital delay and emulated bucket brigade and tape delays), chorus, and phase shifter
  • Delay sync
  • True bypass maintains fully analog signal path when digital effects are off

SEQUENCER

  • Polyphonic step sequencer with up to 64 steps and rests

PATCH MEMORY

  • 500 user and 500 factory programs in 10 banks of 100 programs each
  • Direct program access, including Prophet-5 style single-button access to the current set of 10 programs

PERFORMANCE CONTROLS

  • Full-sized, semi-weighted, 4-octave keyboard with velocity and aftertouch
  • Backlit pitch and mod wheels
  • Spring-loaded pitch wheel with selectable range per program (1 to 12 semitones up and down)
  • Transpose controls for an 8-octave range
  • Hold switch latches held notes on
  • Polyphonic glide (portamento)
  • Unison (monophonic) mode with configurable voice count, from one to all six voices, and key modes
  • Preset switch: when off, the front panel is live; what you see is what you hear
