Sequential Prophet 5 vs Prophet VS basic waveform comparision

Published on Feb 19, 2018 synthlegends

"In that demo I demonstrate the basic waveforms from the Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 rev. 3 and Prophet VS in comparision.

1. single saw
2. single saw filter
3. single saw resonance
4. two saw tuned
5. two saw detuned
6. two saw detuned (Prophet VS four saw)
7. saw lead filter
8. saw lead resonance
9. pulse and square
10. saw brass
11. saw pad
12. saw bass
13. unison lead

It is a Prophet 5 rev. 3 with curtis filter chips. So, both Prophets have the same filter chips, but the Prophet VS has digital waveforms, whereas the Prophet 5 has analog VCO. The Prophet 5 has only two oscilators, whereas the VS has four oscilators. You also can detune the oscillators and have a lot of modulation possibilites which I didn't demonstrate in this video. But you can really let the VS sound very analogue. Additionaly you have altogehther 128 waveforms (32 user and 98 in ROM).

Of my opinion the Prophet VS is a much more powerful and versatile synth, but the Propeht 5 is a bit warmer sounding. IMO the difference is not so big, also you can let him sound more broad thanks of four oscillators, a mixer envolope and also stereo pan modulation. In this examples I didnt use the onboard chorus of the VS, because the Prophet 5 has none. Also there are no additional effects. It is just pure playing the synhts.

Thanks for watching:-)"
