Throughout the '70s and 80's, synthesizers played a large role in defining the popular music of the time, and as technology continued to make huge advancements, the possibilities of what a musician could do with a synthesizer expanded along with it. Of course, when Dave Smith Instruments began manufacturing electronic instruments in 2002, it didn't take long before their synthesizers were the go-to choice of synth players from around the globe. In fact, David Smith himself is a legendary instrument designer, Grammy award-winner, and considered by many to be the "Father of MIDI". In other words, if you're looking to take your synth performance to the next level, you've definitely come to the right section.

New from Dave Smith, Sequential Prophet X pairs a bi-timbral synth and expertly crafted samples. Sequential Prophet X's fully enhanced sound engine powers two simultaneous 16-bit, 48kHz sample-based instruments. It also drives two high-resolution digital oscillators with waveshape modulation. The Sequential Prophet X's 150GB sample library includes acoustic and electronic instruments as well as ambient and cinematic effects. Plus, its 5-octave semi-weighted keyboard with velocity and channel aftertouch gives you comfort and control.
