iProphet has brought back this legendary synth and now anyone with an iPad® and enough money to buy a couple of magazines can have this rare masterpiece.
The digital textures iProphet will bring to your music will help you create some of the most spine-chilling, crystalline pads and ambiences imaginable, and then turn around and crank up the nastiest, most in-your-face-bass sounds you ever heard.
iProphet will open up a whole new palette of sounds for your musical projects.
The range of sounds you can get from iProphet is vast due to the number of waveforms and the sound qualities that vector synthesis provides.
You can get traditional virtual analog types of sounds by using one other traditional waveforms like Square, Saw or Triangle. But then you can take it much further because iProphet contains the same 96 waveforms the original Prophet VS had.
iProphet is loaded with nearly 500 sounds from some of the best sound designers in the world. This will give you plenty of sounds to use in your music as well as giving you excellent starting points for modifying and making your own sounds.
The main screen is where you’ll spend 90% of your time in iProphet. It allows access to all the major parameters for adjusting your sound. Here you can choose the waveforms and pitch of your four oscillators. You can choose from the 4 filter modes, set the LFO rate and wave, set the FX mix and edit the envelope generators.
Pressing the Keyboard icon reveals the keyboard and voice controls. You can set glide time, choose legato or non-legato play modes, and set voice priority modes and unison detuning. The keyboard can be scaled using the Zoom control or scrolled up and down using the Scroll control. The Scale function allows you to configure the keyboard to play one of 26 different preset scales and modes.
Pressing the Load button gives you access to hundreds of sounds created by top sound designers. For quick browsing, you can use the < > buttons to audition the presets in any category.
The Vector mode allows you to get into mode editing of the vector oscillators. This is where you can edit the parameters of the vector envelope in detail. By moving the points and adjusting the time it takes to go from one point to another, you can create all kinds of new sounds not possible with other types of synthesis.
The mod matrix is where you can route control sources like either of the 2 LFOs, the keyboard tracking, the envelopes or the built in accelerometers. You can create complex modulations that breathe life into your patches through an easy-to-use interface.
iProphet comes with 3 high-quality effects. The chorus has 3 modes that can have an impact from subtle to huge. The sound quality will remind you of some of the great analog chorus units of days past. The overdrive can give a slightly crisp ‘edge’ to thicken that bass or lead sound or it can growl like a wolf backed into a corner. The crystal clear digital delay complements the digital nature of the Prophet VS sound. You can create long stereo delays or offset the times for a nice pingpong delay. It’s perfect for that ambient soundtrack.
