The Sequential Prophet 12 LE is a limited edition (100 units) of the Prophet 12 hybrid polyphonic Synthesizer with all the same features but in white!
The Sequential Prophet 12 Synthesizer is already a bit old, but remains very fine and an excellent polyphonic hybrid Synthesizer. Today Dave Smith announced a limited edition in white. All features are the same, only the interface has now a new colours.
If you would like to have this instrument in white you should not wait too long, as it is limited to 100 units worldwide.
Dave Smith had this to say about the Prophet 12 LE: “It’s nice to give the Prophet 12 a proper send-off with this special edition. The P12 was a real milestone for us in terms of pushing the synth envelope. As a hybrid instrument, it gave us a chance to explore the interaction of digital oscillators and analog filters and see how far we could take that idea. It’s still a great instrument and has found its way onto a lot of stages and studios, and into a lot of music.”
Sequential product designer Andrew McGowan recalled the genesis of the Prophet 12: “We’d just released the Tempest analog drum machine after several years of development, and we were turning our attention back to synths for the first time in a while. It gave us the opportunity to look at things with a fresh eye. Interestingly, when Dave and I sat down to draw up a spec, it was immediately apparent that we’d each been sort of designing the same instrument in our minds during our ‘time away’ — a hybrid synth with digital oscillators, dual analog filters, and new modulation possibilities. The Prophet 12 came together quickly after that and turned out really well for us.”
The Prophet 12 LE has the same combination of features as the original Prophet 12 — a bi-timbral, 12-voice architecture, with each voice boasting four high-resolution, multi-waveform digital oscillators, a sub-oscillator, analog low-pass and high-pass filters, analog VCAs, four envelopes and four LFOs, and a set of unique Character Effects for sound shaping. Linear FM capability was later added to the Prophet 12 as a software enhancement, giving the instrument even greater depth and making it one of Sequential’s most versatile poly synths.
Sequential Prophet 12 LE will be available in December, priced at a MAP of $2999 USD. A limited number of standard-finish black Prophet 12s are available while stock lasts.
