Sequential Prophet-5


The new Prophet-5 is Dave Smith's timely return to the analogue poly synthesiser that changed the world. It is "the best of all Prophet-5s", as Dave puts it, because it combines all three revisions of the legendary synthesiser - Rev1, Rev2 and Rev3 with each other. Using real analogue Curtis VCOs and filters (as in the Rev3) embodied as new 2140 low pass filters designed by Dave Rossum, like the 2040 filters he designed in the original Rev1 and Rev2. A Rev switch lets you choose between the two filter designs.

The result is such a pure renewal of an analogue classic, with the authentic, muscular sound of the original. A modern instrument at the cutting edge of technology.

  • Oscillators: Two authentic CEM 3340 VCOs per voice.
  • Simultaneously selectable waveforms. Oscillator A: sawtooth, pulse. Oscillator B: Sawtooth, triangle, pulse.
  • Pulse width per oscillator
  • Hard Sync: Oscillator 1 is synchronised with oscillator 2.
  • Low frequency mode (oscillator 2)
  • Keyboard tracking on / off (oscillator 2)
  • Mixer:
  • Oscillator 1
  • Oscillator 2
  • White noise
  • Low-pass filter:
  • Four-pole, resonant low-pass filter per voice
  • Switchable between authentic versions of the Prophet-5 Rev1 / 2 filter and the Prophet-5 Rev3 filter
  • The Rev1 / 2 filter is a 2140 designed by Dave Rossum, the modern counterpart to the original 2040 filter of the Prophet-5 Rev1 and Rev2
  • The Rev3 filter is a CEM 3320 designed by Doug Curtis.
  • The filter can be set to self-oscillate with the resonance control
  • Keyboard tracking: Off, half, full
  • Filter envelope:
  • Four-stage (ADSR) envelope generator
  • Speed modulation of the envelope amount
  • Amplifier Envelope:
  • Four-stage (ADSR) envelope generator
  • Speed modulation of the envelope amount
  • Low Frequency Oscillators:
  • Three waveforms: Sawtooth, triangle, square. All waveforms can be activated simultaneously
  • Both the initial amount and the mod wheel control
  • Mod targets: Frequency of oscillator A, frequency of oscillator B, pulse width of oscillator A and B, filter cut-off.
  • Poly mode:
  • Sources: Filter envelope and oscillator B.
  • Targets: Oscillator A frequency, oscillator A pulse width, filter cutoff.
  • Vintage Knob:
  • Restores the characteristics of various Prophet 5 models by varying the behaviour of oscillators, envelopes, amplifiers and other parameters. Go from a very stable "4" - as in Prophet-5 Rev4 (the new version) - to "1", as in Prophet-5 Rev1, the rarest and most temperamental of all Prophet-5s
  • Aftertouch:
  • Channel (mono) aftertouch
  • Targets: Filter cut-off frequency, LFO amount
  • Performance Control:
  • Full-size, high-quality Fatar 5-octave keyboard with velocity and aftertouch
  • Mod wheel
  • Spring-loaded pitch wheel with selectable range per program (1 to 12 semitones up and down)
  • Polyphonic glide (portamento)
  • Unison mode (monophonic) with configurable number of voices, from one to all five voices (10 voices for Prophet-10) and key modes
  • Preset switch: when this option is off, the front panel is active. What you see is what you hear
  • Patch memory:
  • 200 user and 200 factory programmes in 5 banks of 40 programmes each.
  • Direct programme access, including Prophet 5-style one-button access to the current set of 8 programmes
  • Connections:
  • Mono output (1 x 6.3mm jack)
  • Headphone output (stereo, 6.3mm jack)
  • MIDI in, out and thru ports
  • USB for bidirectional MIDI communication
  • Control voltage input / output (1 x 6.3mm jack) 0- + 5V input / output signal. Configured to operate at 1 volt per octave.
  • Gate In / Out (1 x 6.3mm jack). Accepts a 1.5 / 15 volt on / off signal to control the envelopes of a single voice of the Prophet-5. Outputs a 15 volt on / off to control the envelopes of an external synthesiser.
  • Low-pass filter cutoff expression pedal input
  • Volume control pedal input
  • Sustain footswitch input
  • Power supply:
  • IEC AC input for internal power supply.
  • Operates worldwide on voltages between 100 and 240 volts at 50 to 60 Hz; Prophet-5: 20 watts maximum power consumption. Prophet-10: 28 watts maximum power consumption
  • Dimensions: 95.3 x 41.6 x 12.4 cm
  • Weight: 14.06 kg
