More Sequential Prophet X Sounds

A selection of patches from the new X      15/05/18

Prophet X was a big release from Dave Smith Instruments, which may have been a little submerged in the overwhelming tide of releases from Superbooth this year.

Not only have we got the REV 2 style synthesis engine with split and layer, but a complex and deep sample sound source (2 layers) which can be single stretched samples or full multi-sample sound sets. We shot a video with Gerry Basserman at Superbooth, which to be fair was the first of the show and as we mentioned, Gerry's sound bank had just been borked by a software update, but he did gamely give us a look a the new synth, though without his nicely prepared set of patches.

So here are a fe more sounds which give a broader perspective on what the new Prophet X can do:

A great workout from Tallshy 

And another

Prophet X will be shipping this Summer priced at around $3999 US
