I know this isn't a totally fair comparison as Repro-1 is a fully programmable synth vs Pro-5 being a more limited romper, but I'd love to compare them regardless. Repro-5 is in open beta, but since that isn't fully out yet, I just included the mono version. I want to compare sound authenticity, not feature parity. Basically, is Pro-5 a reasonable Prophet sound source, or does Repro-1 outshine it? Repro-1 can be had right now for $99, while Pro-5 is on sale for $35 as a sound source for Sampletank CS or for as low as $150 as art of Syntronik. I got it for just over $75 buying gear credits in bulk, and using jam points. There is also a hard drive cost, Syntronik Pro-5 uses 2gb or so, but Repro-1 takes more CPU cycles.

Thoughts?

CPU cycles are a total non issue for me so I guess it's Repro-1
I was not impressed with Syntronik at all, the free version anyhow.

I think that this thread might need some popcorn, I'll get some ready.

Yeah, I wasn't terribly impressed with the free version sounds, but it is growing on me. And I definitely think Repro-1 is the superior experience, but I got Syntronik cheap and my machine didn't run even Diva as well as I would like, so I don't think I would get the best Repro experience. I also am pretty happy using Synthmaster One as a stand in for it, I reverse engineered a couple of Repro One presets and it can be a convincing Prophet emulator. So I think I am OK. I'd love to get Repro-5 when I get a new machine, whenever that may happen. I don't have immediate plans for that though, my old i7 is still a champ for the most part.

If you are considering Repro, it would be wise to jump in now. You can get it for $87 at audiodeluxe (automatic discount at checkout), as opposed to $99 from u-he. And this includes both repro-1 and repro-5. But that is going up to $149 when repro-5 is out of beta. On the other hand IK have deals all the time and you can bet there will be a bett deal some time in the future. Won't be the case with repro.

Funny enough it was the prophet-5 emulation that pushed me over the edge to buy repro, however I'm finding I like repro-1 much more! Cpu is less of an issue with the monosynth and I just like it for those kind of sounds. I like repro-5 as well, just not sure if it's worth the cpu cycles for most of the sounds for me personally.
This is a block of text that can be added to posts you make. There is a 255 character limit. Once I have something clever, I will certainly fill it in.

This thread LOL! Sorry, I'll shut up now....LOL! Sorry! I'll stop laughing now. LOL!

Yes, I'm also still a fan of Repro 1, even though I don't give a shit about CPU usage.

Wow, thanks for the tip. I may have to try and pick that up. And it ran fine for me mono, so I could live with leaving Repro-5 alone for the most part. Damn it, now I may have to sell a bunch of stuff.

Yeah, I just jumped on this. Got it from JRR for $84 with "group" code. :phones:

I'm still waiting on my code for Repro-1, so am getting static every few seconds still, but I have been playing it along side Pro-5 and there really is no comparison. I will use Pro-5 for some arpeggiations and stuff, and I frankly like its arp better than Repro-1, but for leads, hands down, Repro-1 is so much more nuanced and the filter is just sweetness and spice, where Pro-5 just kind of hints 'prophet'. Anyhow, I'm happy, the Prophet 5 was the first synth I ever wanted to play, and I'll get a lot out of it. I wouldn't be able to afford it once the price goes up, so yippee. I still need to explain the need to my wife though. Luckily she loves me.

With the open beta Repro-5, my computer uses 3-6%, usually 4-5%, I set it at 5 voices for authenticity :) and to lower demands on the processor. I think I can actually use this thing :) I'm a happy camper.

I bought into Repro-1 too and running it and Repro-5 together is bliss. Mapped so, I can tweak them both at the same time. Aahh!

Yesterday, I jammed with Repro-1 and 5 in HQ, Phonec 2 and Tremor with Echomelt 2 at the same time, no hassle for my "new" studio computer... Rock solid.

Haven't checked CPU usage, but no unwanted sound artifacts of any kind...

Yeah, I have a 3440 i& it is getting old but I don't think it is too old just yet, I'm happy. No artifacts here. And I do know how to freeze tracks still :lol: just in case.
