An old Minimoog, a Prophet 5…. To be honest, you want to have a whole studio with old vintage synths. Unfortunately, reality often looks different. Expensive, hard to get and many have to be repaired first. It is all the harder to get rarities like the Prophet 2000 in good condition. What is left? Waiting until you get a synth in good condition or switching to a good software solution.
One option is Synth Magic, which has been sampling old Synthesizer for a long time in detail for the Kontakt 5 sampler. He’s latest Kontakt release the P2000 is a virtual instrument that is based on the Prophet 2000 Synthesizer. This old Sequential Circuits Synthesizer was an interesting instrument because it was an affordable sample Synthesizer similar to the Emulators and old Ensoniqs.
For this release, Synth Magic teamed up with Divergent Audio Group and captured a wide range of different sounds from the vintage Synthesizers Sequential Circuits Prophet 2000 and Prophet 2002. All this is built-in an authentic Kontakt GUI interface.
An Instrument Was Captured in Detail
Over 1300 samples placed under the control of a very easy to use interface that allows for easy manipulation of the samples. Each sample set is loaded all at the same time and streamed from disc for small memory footprint and easy quick access to the sample material.
Comes supplied with over 200 snapshots for quick and easy access to the presets and 30 MULTI instruments.
Expect to find: haunting choirs, spacey synths, bass, leads, fx, ambient keys, 80’s stabs, electronic blips and sequencer sounds, dreamy arpeggiations, hard hitting and aggressive electronic sounds, MIDI time based LFO modulations and many more sounds.
P2000 also has MIDI syncable LFO’s, Delays and the ability to control the attack and decay of the Filter envelope with velocity.
