Sequential Prophet 10 Desktop Module

Fast on the heels
of the reintroduction of its legendary Prophet-5 synthesizer, Sequential
announces a desktop version of the acclaimed instrument. As with the
keyboard version, the desktop model will be available in both five- and
ten-voice configurations, dubbed the Prophet-5 desktop module and
Prophet-10 desktop module, respectively. They feature the same authentic
vintage sound and front-panel controls as the Prophet-5 and Prophet-10
keyboards, but in a smaller form factor designed for portability and
space-conscious studios.

“Our introduction of the Prophet-5 and
Prophet-10 Rev 4 keyboards has been hugely successful. At the same time,
a lot of people have been asking us for an easy way to fit them into a
smaller studio space or into a touring rig,” commented Sequential
founder and original Prophet-5 designer Dave Smith. “It was an easy
decision to create a desktop module to fill that need. The great thing
is, we managed to fit the same big, ballsy sound of the full Prophet-5
into a desktop model. It sounds every bit as awesome.”

Like the
original, the new Prophet-5 and Prophet-10 modules feature two
multi-waveform analog oscillators, analog resonant low-pass filters and
amplifiers, and a filter and amplifier envelope per voice. Modulation is
provided by a multi-waveshape LFO and Poly Mod, a ground-breaking
modulation scheme for its time that allowed the filter envelope and
oscillator B to be routed to a variety of destinations including filter
cutoff frequency, oscillator A frequency, and oscillator A pulse width.

just like the new Prophet-5/10 Rev 4 keyboards, the modules feature
genuine Curtis VCOs and filters as used in the Prophet-5 Rev 3, as well
as the Dave Rossum-designed SSI 2140 filter — the modern counterpart of
the original SSM 2040 Rossum designed in the Prophet-5 Rev 1 and Rev 2. A
Rev switch on the front panel allows users to switch between the two as

Also present is the new Vintage knob, which loosens up
the oscillators, filters, and envelopes from voice to voice as they
typically are in vintage Prophet-5s. Users can dial in progressively
more vintage character from a very stable “4,” as in Prophet-5 Rev4, all
the way to “1,” as in Prophet-5 Rev1, which was the most temperamental
of all Prophet-5s. The original factory sound set is included as well.

modern enhancements include velocity sensitivity and aftertouch to
increase expressiveness, as well as MIDI and USB connectivity. Control
voltage and gate ins/outs are also present for connecting modular synths
and other gear. The new modules are housed in a premium-quality, steel
case with hand-oiled sustainable black walnut heartwood trim.
