The Prophet 5 was the first totally programmable synthesizer on the market. This revolutionary synth became the basis for all other polysynths to this day. The Prophet VS was the last synth made by SCI and again it set the synth world on its ear. Its digital vector synthesis brought a new soundscape that was then carried on in products from Korg and Yamaha.

The original prophet

While the Prophet 5 was known for its 2 oscillator analog warmth, the Prophet VS used four digital wave table oscillators giving a crystal and clear sound. We have recreated both of these classic machines to give them the detail heard in the originals.

Prophet Hybrid

Perfectly balanced yin and yang

The Prophet V's combined personality of analog warmth and thickness blended with thehard edge digital sound of the VS make it perfect for the throwback 80's sound or the modern techno chord stabbs.

Press Clipping

"With the Prophet-V, Arturia's product line breaks new ground by taking classic sounds yet pushing them further than mere emulations. The sound is both familiar and new, criss-crossing the boundaries between analog warmth and digital sparkle. Exploiting the Arturia Prophet-V to the fullest is a challenge, but one well worth undertaking."
Keyboard Magazine
"There have already been numerous soft synths purporting to emulate the Prophet 5, and I have not been impressed by any of them. Arturia have created something closer to the original than any of these, and I am confident that Prophet V will continue to improve. Furthermore, by creating this strange marriage of the Prophet 5 with one of my all-time favourite synthesizers, the Prophet VS, the company have shown the imagination needed to take their offering way beyond those of their competition."
Sound On Sound
"Arturia has done a frighteningly good job of capturing the beloved gritty characteristics of this American-made classic. Being the first polyphonic analog synth, the Prophet 5's sound was all over records from '80s artists like Talking Heads, INXS, and Gary Numan, and as such, the presets do well to cover the sounds used in those days. However, Arturia includes emulation of the Prophet VS and a hybrid mode, meaning this synth goes far beyond churning out throwback fare. Certainly a great all-around plug-in that especially excels with leads and percussive sounds."
XLR8R
"Overall, Arturia Prophet V replicates the sound and feel of the Prophet 5 very well, while adding a number of features that modern synth users will want. With the inclusion of the VS model and Hybrid mode, Prophet V offers plenty of bang for your buck."
Electronic Musician
"Prophet V is easy to load and learn, it sounds excellent and looks stunning, it is relatively CPU friendly and it carries a sweet price tag (especially versus the hardware). If you want to go deep into the heart of both traditional analog and vector synthesis without going deep into your pocket, look directly at Prophet V."

"Another Arturia triumph. The Prophet V is a beautifully re-created, amazing sounding and very flexible instrument. - MusicTech Excellence Award -"
Music Tech Magazine
"Prophet V is a worthy addition to the roster of Arturia soft synths. It autentically imitates the originals while going beyond their limitations with up to 32 voice polyphony, decent chorus/delay effects and the endless potential of hybridising Prophet 5 and Prophet VS sounds."
Music Mart Magazine
"France's Arturia continues it's string of hits with the Prophet V. With Arturia's devotion to quality, excellent user interfaces and bringing this all to the musician at an extremely low cost, other virtual synth makers are now all looking up at the new high water mark."
Futuremusic.Inc
"Prophet V belongs to a new generation of virtual instruments that take full advantage of today's processing prowess to deliver a sound that even the most synth obsessed would be hard-pressed to tell from the originals. While I remain a fan of analog hardware, this is one soft synth that will definitely be finding its way onto my own tracks."
Create Digital Music
"A savvy software recreation of Sequential Circuits' groundbreaking Prophet 5, and the equally influential wavetable synth Prophet VS, Arturia's V is literally two synths in one, a mightily flexible instrument that takes both software instrument design and sonics to new levels. The must-have soft synth of 2006. - Future Music Ace Awards 2007 - "

The perfect blend

While Prophet 5 and Prophet VS were great machines, what if you could blend the two?

Our Hybrid mode is an astounding combination of Prophet 5 and Prophet VS. The result is an entirely new sound palette at your disposal: the analog subtractive synthesis plus the digital wavetable / vector synthesis of the other, both available at once in one massively powerful instrument.

Pfunk 5 (Christian Laffitte )

"I have chosen to create a track from the period in which the Prophet 5 and VS rained supreme synth: the 80's. The bass sounds are deep, the highs very airy and atmospheric. It was easy to achieve the 80's funk disco style of the time using the Prophet V.
