James Wiltshire of F9 Audio has just released Mercury P5 - a huge collection of multi-sampled sounds formatted for a host of DAWs, inspired by the Sequential Circuits Prophet 5. We spoke to James about his amazing career as a Grammy nominated producer last year - watch the interview here.

As a modern music producer, you may find it challenging to capture the true essence of vintage synthesiser sounds that bring a nostalgic vibe to your tracks. The iconic analogue warmth of classic synths like the Prophet 5 is often missing in today's digital-heavy productions.
By using F9 Mercury P5 you'll have access to a treasure trove of meticulously crafted sounds, capturing the true essence of this legendary instrument using the built-in sampler tools of your DAW, or Kontakt. From lush pads to soaring leads, this pack is a must-have for any producer seeking to infuse their creations with the timeless character of a truly classic analogue synth.
The 144 Multi-sampled patches inside this collection perfectly capture the lush warmth and exhilarating motion of the P5.
F9 Mercury P5 Contains:
- 5 DAW Projects ( Logic, Ableton and Bitwig editions)
- 21 Bass Patches
- 23 Brass Patches
- 26 Lead Patches
- 16 Pad Patches
- 31 Pluck Patches
- 27 Synth Patches
- 5 Drum Kits
- 5 Sets of Drum stems ( Kontakt Edition )
- All related midi files
Only round-robin sampling can accomplish such a feat - This process records multiple samples at the same pitch, complete with the phase and pitch differences of the analogue sources and then rotates around this sample set, breathing life into what would normally be a static sampling process. Think of this as a miniature film instead of a single photograph. The results are full of energy, life and inspiration.
Multiple recording chains were used throughout the 5-month period of sampling. Everything from API, Neve and our new favourite - an A-Designs RED-DI that packs a huge tube punch before we even get into further analogue processing.
