The advancements made in keyboard and MIDI technology has opened musicians and producers up to a universe of effects and soundscapes. One of the driving forces behind this technology was a man by the name of Dave Smith. In 1981, Dave not only coined the term "MIDI" (Musical Instrument Digital Interface), but his knack for innovation led to many groundbreaking instruments. Of course, he continues to flex his musical expertise to this day, and the wide array of keyboards and MIDI controllers in this catalog makes that obvious.
So the question is, are you searching for a synth or sound module? As you can imagine, you'll find plenty of both in this section, many of which just happen to be top sellers. If it's a synth that you're after, check out the Sequential Prophet-6. What you have here is Dave Smith's tribute to the poly synth that started it all: the Sequential Prophet-5. But it's not just a reissue: the Prophet-6 takes the best aspects of the Prophet-5's true voltage-controlled oscillators, amps and filters, and adds amazing new enhancements like a polyphonic step sequencer and an arpeggiator. Warm, punchy and loaded with dual effects, the Prophet-6 will take your keyboard skills to new heights whether you're onstage or in the studio.
Now for those who you are looking for a sound module, you're in for a treat. Any Dave Smith sound module is worthy of your attention, but for the sake of kicking off your search, we'll suggest the Prophet 12 Module.
