Sequential's Most Powerful Synth - The Prophet XL - Full Feature Rundown

Published on Jun 21, 2019 Andertons Synths, Keys and Tech

"The Prophet XL marks a brand new world for the Sequential Prophet Series. A 76-key, bi-timbral, 8-voice stereo (16-voice mono) synthesizer combining digital oscillators and high fidelity stereo samples, processed through stereo analog filters and the awesome sound and synthesis capabilities we all love and have come to expect on a DSI synth.

At the heart of the Prophet XL is a new sound engine that powers two simultaneous 16-bit, 48kHz sample-based instruments plus two high-resolution digital oscillators with waveshape modulation — all processed through stereo analog filters.

To start you off DSI have created a 150GB sample library, created with acclaimed sound developers 8Dio. The library includes acoustic and electronic instruments as well as ambient and cinematic effects. In addition the Prophet XL provides you with 50 GB of internal storage space so that you can load your own favourite samples and sample libraries.

In May 2019, sound developer 8Dio released the new T8 add-on pack for Prophet X / Prophet XL. As the name suggests, the samples included are based on the legendary Prophet T8 synthesizer, a flagship all-analog unit that's considered one of Dave Smith's greatest creations. For the new sample pack, 8Dio actually sampled Smith's own vintage Prophet T8 - the real deal!"
