It's not overstating things to say that this five-voice synthesizer changed the future. The first synthesizer with a digital microprocessor to control the analog polyphonic synth engine and store sounds, it has graced hits from superstars such as Michael Jackson, Madonna, Peter Gabriel, Radiohead, The Cars, and countless others.

With great reverence and proven modeling expertise, we captured every detail of this storied synth's circuit, interactions, and factory presets. The result is a revelation: the authentic sound, feel, and performance of an industry-defining instrument perfected for modern production. Like a prophecy from 1980 fulfilled, so cometh Model 80 Five Voice Synthesizer.

The Art of Rock & Roll Science

Our reputation for creating tools that enhance workflow and offer superior sound quality is rock solid. Our partnerships with premium brands like Tube-Tech, Solid State Logic, Chandler Limited, Weiss Engineering, and Trident have spanned decades.

We built Model 80 Five Voice Synthesizer on this legacy of passion, expert modeling, and attention to detail. Because to create synth plug-ins that innovate and elevate, you have to have heart, soul, and Rock & Roll Science.

The visionary original recreated

Everything about the synth we modeled Model 80 after is iconic. Including the presets. To authentically recreate the experience of recalling them on the hardware, Model 80 offers the 40 original factory presets plus buttons on the programmer to call them up. The five voices and their relationship are exactingly replicated for authentic analog and organic sound. We paid obsessive attention to every detail of the circuit and interactions in our modeling to give you the real sound, feel, and experience of the original.


  • The industry-defining five-voice polyphonic synth from 1980.
  • Precisely modeled sound, interactions, and performance of the original unit.
  • The easy recall of original factory presets heard on countless classic recordings.
  • An accurately modeled and newly versatile Voice Mod section.
  • Workflow enhancements such as poly-portamento glide, Voice Pan Spread, velocity and aftertouch modulation, quantize filter cutoff, DAW sync, an Aging knob, and the Invert Voice Mod button.
  • Two versions included: the instrument and five modules for Modular.

This synth is a faithful recreation of the Prophet 5.
I love the sound and indeed looks like Softube nailed it.
They also added an extended panel with additional features as well as aging dial to create aging effect.
