Sequential has updated the Prophet X firmware to OS 2.2 with numerous new user-requested features including 24 additional user sample groups, crossfades & more.

Not only does Dave Smith surprise us with a new Pro 3 Synthesizer (Interview + first look), but also with a nice update for the Prophet X / XL hybrid Synthesizer. The new 2.2 OS update adds several user-requested features including 24 additional user sample groups, support for crossfades on forward-backward loops, and the possibility to modulate between tempo-synced LFO values.

There is also news about two software editors that make it easy to design samples and patches. The first, PXToolkit, is a free application from developer ThinkerSnacks which offers drag and drop file creation with automatic extraction of pitch and loop metadata from .WAV files, as well as support for multi-sampled instruments, multiple velocity layers per key, and round-robin sample selection and playback.

Commercial Add-Ons

Sequential recalls in his press letter that there are numerous content addons for the Prophet X from third-party companies like 8-Dio who also worked on the factory library. They offer as an additional purchase sampled sounds from vintage instruments such as the Yamaha CP70, ARP 2600, Oberheim OB-X, Sequential Prophet-5 and T-8, Roland Jupiter 4, and Moog Prodigy and Minimoog Model D synths.

Other developers are Modulatable Synthesis (Replicants, samples of the Deckard’s Dream), Pianobook (Yamaha grand piano), Goldbaby (PPG Wave 2.2) or ThinkerSnacks (VCO samples from the Neutron, OB-6. Dreadbox Erebus and Moog Voyager).

“We’re excited about the support that the Prophet X is getting from third-party developers. Clearly they feel, as we do, that it’s a hugely powerful synth with incredible potential,” commented Dave Smith. “Having access to these new editing tools and add-on sample packs makes an already-awesome musical tool even more versatile. ”

As a little reminder for everyone who didn’t see the video, I had the opportunity to interview Dave Smith but also to get a first look at the Pro 3, Sequential’s new hybrid synthesizer.

Sequential Prophet X OS 2.2 update is available now as a free download.
