Sequential Prophet VS Digital Vector Synthesizer

   0 reviews  -  1294 views
    Description
    The Prophet VS introduced a revolutionary new type of digital synthesis called vector synthesis. With four digital oscillators per voice and 127 waveforms to choose from, the VS allowed players to dynamically crossfade between the oscillators in real time with a joystick. The sonic results were complex, evolving textures unlike anything heard before or since, making the VS an instrument that remains in high demand even today.
