Sequential Prophet-6 Synthesizer
Key Features
  • Semi-Weighted Velocity Sensitive Keys
  • 4 Octave Keyboard w/ Channel Aftertouch
  • 6 Voices w/ 2 Oscillators per Voice
  • Low Pass and High Pass Filter
The Sequential Prophet-6 from Dave Smith Instruments is a modern, all-analog 6-voice polyphonic synthesizer that pays tribute to the original vintage Prophet 5, but with several enhancements. The synth features true voltage-controlled oscillators, filters, amplifiers, envelopes, and an LFO. Additional enhancements include studio-quality effects, a polyphonic step-sequencer, and an arpeggiator; all of which can be synchronized internally or via external MIDI clock.

The Sequential Prophet-6 from Dave Smith Instruments is a modern, all-analog 6-voice polyphonic synthesizer that pays tribute to the original vintage Prophet 5, but with several enhancements. The synth features true voltage-controlled oscillators, filters, amplifiers, envelopes, and an LFO. Additional enhancements include studio-quality effects, a polyphonic step-sequencer, and an arpeggiator; all of which can be synchronized internally or via external MIDI clock.

The four octave, semi-weighted keyboard offers velocity sensitivity and channel aftertouch, while the control panel offers knob-per-function control with no menu diving. There are 500 permanent factory programs and 500 user programs, which are organized into 10 banks of 100 presets. The Prophet-6 offers an ideal combination of portability and power for the project studio or the gigging musician.

Classic Tone, Classic Vibe

  • Two discrete voltage-controlled oscillators (plus sub-oscillator) per voice
  • Continuously Variable Waveshapes: Triangle, sawtooth, and variable-width pulse waves
  • One 4-pole, resonant, low-pass inspired by the original Prophet-5 filter
  • One 2-pole, resonant, high-pass filter
  • VCA: Voltage-controlled amplifiers

Dual Effects

  • Dual Effect Engine: 24-bit/ 48 kHz resolution
  • Studio-quality reverbs, delays (standard and BBD), chorus, and phase shifter
  • True bypass maintains a full analog signal path
  • Independent stereo 100% analog distortion effect

Poly Mod and Poly Step Sequencing

  • Modulation Sources: Filter envelope and oscillator 2 (both with bi-polar control)
  • Destinations: Oscillator 1 frequency, oscillator 1 shape, oscillator 1 pulse width, low-pass filter cutoff, and high-pass filter cutoff
  • Unison Mode: Configurable voice count (1-6 voices) and key modes
  • Polyphonic Step Sequencer: 64 steps with up to 6 notes per step with rests. Syncs to an external MIDI clock
  • Arpeggiator: Syncs to external MIDI clock

Easy to Program

  • Knob-per-function front panel offers instant access to virtually all Prophet-6 functions
  • 1000 Presets: 500 permanent factory programs and 500 user programs organized into 10 banks of 100 programs
  • Live Panel Mode: Switches from a preset to current knob and switch settings

Easy to Play

  • Four octave, semi-weighted keyboard with velocity and channel aftertouch
  • Programmable Backlit Pitch Wheel: 1 to 12 semi-tones
  • Backlit modulation wheel
