Analog Synthesizer Demo: The Prophet 6

Published on Mar 10, 2019 Will Padgett

"I’ve been slacking on the YT channel this week, but I am proud to share with you the results of my 2019 Spring Grind—a brand new, immaculate analog synthesizer, the Prophet 6, by Sequential! Designed by Dave Smith himself. I came across an extremely ridiculous discount at my local music retailer, and I had to wait 4 weeks to know if I’d actually get it. And I did!!! Thanks Josh at Guitar Center!!!!!!

This thing sounds incredible! So I edited down about an hour of jamming and tweaking into a short little vid to give you an idea of the sounds this thing can make. These are all unprocessed sounds, meaning there’s no compression, EQ, reverb, or FX—it’s just the sound of the VCO oscillators. And boy, is it smooth! :)

Although the major benefit of a true analog synth like this is that all of the parameters are fully editable from the panel, without any menus/GUI, surfing through presets is a good way to dip your toes into a new instrument. The presets I used here are from the "Old Men of MIDI" Sound Set for the Prophet 6, which is free to download. Here's a link to the full patch list:"
