2 legendary synths in one instrument.
The Prophet 5 was the first totally programmable synthesizer on the market, and the Prophet VS set the industry alight with digital vector synthesis. Now you can enjoy an inspiring hybrid of these profoundly influential instruments.
Most prophets foretell the future. These created it.
Playing chords, saving and recalling presets, and full synthesis architecture made the Prophet-5 a keyboard trifecta, and its huge stackable sound became a must-have. A few years later, a whole new way to think about waveforms arrived in the Prophet VS. Now these oracles of synthesis converge in a single powerful plugin that blurs the lines between analog and digital.
You're serious about vintage synth sound, which is why you need a Prophet in your rig. Our TAE technology guarantees realistic sound down component-level accuracy.
Create sparkling, crystalline, hypnotic motion patches worthy of a sci-fi blockbuster or dancefloor masterpiece with the digital precision of Prophet VS.
Two synthesizers responsible for the biggest hits throughout the decades, and still defining the charts now. Prophet V brings their sound locked and loaded for the future.
Inspiration can strike anytime and anywhere. With modern stability, CPU efficiency, and an incredibly intuitive interface, real Prophet sound is always at arm's reach.
From Silicon Valley to World Domination
An original tech startup success story, the Prophet-5 set the template for polyphonic analog synths for years to come. Later, the VS brilliantly broke that mold. The genius behind both invented MIDI along the way.
Now-legendary instrument designer Dave Smith had built sequencers and programmers for other synths at his San Jose home. Working with John Bowen, Barb Fairhurst, and others as Sequential Circuits, Smith came up with exactly the right synth at exactly the right moment: the Prophet-5.
Prior to the Prophet-5, keyboardists had a choice: a real synthesizer such as the Mini, or playing more than one note at a time on an organ, electric piano, or string machine. Many setups had one of each. A wonderful thing was happening to electronics in the '70s, though: miniaturization via integrated circuit chips. This meant more stuff in a given box, more affordably.
Discover the history of Prophet
When this Prophet speaks, people listen
A knob-for-knob, circuit-for-circuit model of the original Prophet-5, plus effects.
Bold and brash, the Prophet sound was versatile but never one to be upstaged. From hard sync to the signature Poly-Mod section, Prophet V has it all and then some.
The Prophet VS' spin on wavetable synthesis birthed several synths that came after, including the Korg Wavestation and Yamaha SY-22.
Single-cycle digital waveforms didn't take up much memory, so there was room for a lot of them. The waveforms in the VS covered acoustic instruments, additive waves with all kinds of harmonics, the usual analog suspects, and much more. Seamlessly mixing between four oscillators' worth of them made the VS a powerhouse for synthesists in search of new frontiers.
Two become one
Prophet V seamlessly unites two opposing forces of synthesis in a single plugin, so you don't have to choose. Create new pathways between analog and digital for spectacular and surprising sonic results.
Legendary Keyboards Reinvented
This instrument is also part of the V Collection -your complete dream line-up of the legendary synths, organs, pianos and more that made keyboard history. They're modeled with the most advanced technologies for authentic realism, and enhanced with new creative options. Whether you use it as DAW plugins in the studio or standalone at gigs, V Collection puts the greatest keys of all time at your fingertips for instant inspiration.
This is one of my favorite synths. Don't let the simple 'old' interface and limited controls to fool you, as there are lot's of sound design options if you know how this synth work. The prophet is really a fun synth to learn and teach synthesis with all the ingredients needed.
The filter sounds great and really give the growl expected from it.
Of course it's not just the Prophet 5 but also Prophet VS and the combination of both. This can produce modern sounding patches with ease and joy.
To me this is really a playground.
