The virtual emulation offered in Prophet-V is an exact replica of the original instrument and uses the same subtractive synthesis model. Subtractive synthesis refers to the filtering of sounds in a specific way in order to create harmonically rich waveforms and new timbres. Our reproduction of subtractive synthesis with TAE® guarantees the sound quality of the instrument.

Prophet-V provides all of the original parameters and the 40 original presets of the Prophet 5. The potentiometers or switches associated to those 54 parameters will permit you to create an infinite variety of sounds that were native to the original synthesizer.

In the Prophet 5 you will find:

  • Compatibility with the presets of the original synthesizer
  • 2 analog oscillators (TAE® technology)
  • 1 white noise module
  • 1 low pass resonance filter
  • 2 ADSR envelopes
  • 1 LFO
  • Poly Mod section, which allows you to apply FM to oscillator A and to the filter.

Here are a few sound clips of the Prophet 5 to give you a glimpse of the timbral possibilities:


The Prophet VS uses wave table or vector oscillators. In this type of synthesis, the oscillator waveforms are digitally stored in a table which the user can freely select, depending on the texture of the sound that is required. With the VS you can recreate that classic 80’s wavetable synthesis sound within your computer.

There are 96 digitally sampled waveforms available. You can use up to 4 oscillators simultaneously and mix them in real time by sweeping the joystick or by creating a 5-point envelope. The Prophet VS brings you a unique sound that has the strength to stand on its own, but at the same time is complementary to that of the Prophet 5.

In the Prophet VS you will find:

  • Compatibility with the presets of the original synthesizer
  • 4 digital oscillators
  • 1 4-point mixer with joystick
  • 1 multi mode filter (LP, HP, BP, Notch)
  • 1 panaoramic module
  • 2 LFOs
  • 3 5-point envelopes
  • 1 Modulation matrix

Here are a few sound clips with the Prophet VS to give you a glimpse at your musical possibilities:


In Hybrid mode we believe we have brought something very special to life. Part of what’s great about having a new synthesizer is the unexpected things you can discover with it; those delightful moments of inspired creativity when you stumble across a sound that you weren’t looking for.

Hybrid mode provides many such opportunities through a combination of the Prophet 5 and Prophet VS, stacked one on top of the other. This means an entirely new palette of sounds will be at your disposal to mix and blend: the analogue subtractive synthesizer in the Prophet 5 AND the digital wavetable / vector synthesizer of the Prophet VS.

Hybrid mode is made up of all the parameters of both instruments plus:

The audio connection matrix

The audio matrix allows you to activate or deactivate the audio module outputs of the two synthesizers (oscillators, filters, noise generator, etc.). You can connect the filters in series for a unique mix of the two synthesizers, or you can connect the filters in parallel for a fatter sound. This gives you a huge potential for variety in the sound.

One modulation matrix integrating both synthesizers

The modulation matrix of the Prophet Hybrid allows you to add modulation inputs that would be impossible to add with the Prophet 5 alone. The velocity, aftertouch and all of the other modulation sources present on the Prophet VS are now available to the Prophet 5.
