Sequential Prophet VS | Vector Victor!

video upload by Espen Kraft

"The Sequential Prophet VS (Vector Synthesizer) from 1986. A hybrid synthesizer, digital waveforms and analog VCFs & VCAs. 8 voices of polyphony with velocity and after touch.

You make a sound by basically choosing four waveforms, assigning them to the four oscillators (vector points), and then moving the VS's trademark joystick around freely until you hear something pleasing. Movements, or 'vectors' can then be saved, and the sound played back. You can also apply the recorded vector path to another sound altogether and see what happens. *
Separate programmable panned voices and a stereo analog chorus completes the output.
It can sound very lush and smooth while at the same time, crude and digital. Often at the same time. Stellar arpeggiating and everything you do, including moving the joystick, goes out MIDI.

A 33 minute longer version of this video can be accessed through Patreon. In that video I go much more in-depth on the different topics I just browse through in this video."
