Sound on Sound has sneakily published a preview of the unannounced Sequential Systems Prophet XL after receiving the exclusive scoop in an interview with the legendary Dave Smith.
The new synthesiser is a stretched out version of the Prophet X, offering 76 keys – perfect for players coming from piano, or those who like to stretch out their scales or sample bays.
David Smith has given an exclusive scoop on the Prophet XL, which is set to feature 76 keys and increased polyphony.
The Prophet XL will offer an all-new 32-voice filter section (as opposed to the standard version’s 16 filters), two of which are paraphonic and more suited to sample work. But don’t worry, if you’ve just bought the Prophet X, Sequential Systems has got you covered. The new 32 voice mode will be offered as a free download. The extra space will definitely make the most of the X’s 150gb sample storage space.
For now, it looks like we’ll all have to wait for the official announcement, so keep your eyes peeled.
For more information take a look at the Sound on Sound website.
