This year at SUPERBOOTH18 event, Dave Smith announces the Prophet X, a brand new bi-timbral synthesizer with eight stereo voices (16x mono) that combines sampling and synthesis.
According to the manufacturer’s statements, the heart of the newcomer are the two sample-based instruments (16-bit, 48kHz) as well as the two “high-resolution” digital oscillators including waveshape modulation.
In sum, this makes four sound generators that go through analog filters to be buttered softly to a new sound.
The sample-based instruments of the Sequential Prophet X were created in collaboration with the sampling professionals 8Dio, so that musicians can access the highest quality sample instruments.
150 GB of sample content is contained in the Sequential Prophet X, which means a lot of material for acoustic and electronic instruments, cinema sounds, ambient effects and much more.
But even own samples can be incorporated because for Dave Smith has reserved a whopping 50 GB of space.
Of course, users can freely bend these sample-based sounds to whatever the synthesizer has to offer: envelopes, LFOs, dual effect engines (reverb, delay, chorus, flanger, distortion, etc.).
Incidentally, the modulation matrix and the polyphonic sequencer provide up to 64 steps for a lot of movement in the sound and enthralling melodies.
The Dave Smith Prophet X is expected to hit the market in the second quarter of 2018 for $ 3,999 and sounds like a really fat sound generator for demanding producers.
At the upcoming SUPERBOOTH18, you will hopefully learn more about the great novelty Dave Smith Sequential Prophet X.
