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.
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.

In 1981 when I was a student at Middlesex Uni, the studio technician asked me what he should spend his budget of £20K on. I said, “get a Prophet 10.” I cut the keys to the studio and I learned it inside out at night while the lights were out! The Arturia Prophet V is a creepily close realization of the original. The spine tingling cross modulations are all there, and it's brilliant to rediscover the sound and feel of the original.Tony Colman

Leave it to Arturia and the Prophet V to bring classic synthesizers from the past back to life in such a way as to exceed all expectations.Steve Porcaro

With the possibilities offered in hybrid mode, this is infinitely more than just two classic synths bundled together. A real winner in my book.Lyle Mays

The prophet V has many sounds with a lot of presence... It is now my ideal synth for pad sounds. The problem is that I have to take care of not using it in each and every of my productions!2Square

Track made with 12 instances of the Prophet V. Additionnal drums have been programmed with an E-mu morpheus.
"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.
Drum'n'Bass. Track made with Prophet V only, except for the drums.
Demo track made with Prophet V only, except for the drums. Pad sounds programmed with Prophet Hybrid. Sequenced with Cubase SX.
