Introducing an Extra-Large Prophet X - the Sequential Prophet XL is Here.

The Sequential Prophet XL adds 76 weighted-action keys to the sample-meets-synthesis formula of the Prophet X.

Sequential* has just announced an extra-large version of its flagship hybrid synth, the Prophet X. The brand-new Sequential Prophet XL is a 76-key synthesizer with weighted-action keys. This new instrument expands on the sample-meets-synthesis formula and makes the Prophet XL (in Sequential's words), "even more compelling for studio and stage".

Flagship Hybrid Design with Enhanced Features

The new Prophet XL is based on the same combination of high-fidelity samples and true synthesis as the Prophet X. A new 76-key, premium-quality Fatar keybed makes the XL an even more expressive instrument.

In addition to the expanded keyboard, Sequential has also enhanced the sound engine of the Prophet XL (as well as the Prophet X). The new sound engine enables 32-voice polyphony when using a single sample instrument (and single oscillator). This upgrade provides a more nuanced sound when playing acoustic pianos, electric pianos, and other acoustic instruments with higher note-counts.

Hybrid Sound Engine

The Prophet XL inherits the same hybrid design of the Prophet X, so users will find the same powerful bi-timbral, 8-voice synthesis that won the synth its rave reviews.

A 150 GB library of samples is provided, created by the acclaimed sound designers 8Dio. Two of these sample-based instruments can be played simultaneously, expanding the performance potential of this synth greatly.

The samples can be shaped with sample stretching, loop manipulation, 4 envelope generators, 4 LFOs, a deep modulation matrix, and a range of other tools. An additional 50GB of onboard memory lets you add your own sounds, with official support for user-created content expected to be ready for the end of 2018.

The Best of Both Worlds

The hybrid design of the original Prophet X blends synthesis with sample-based instruments. This makes it ideal for studio and live musicians who want the best of both worlds in one instrument. The new Prophet XL follows in the same footsteps but gives players an even more expressive playing surface to bring out all the nuances of their performance. If you're looking for the ultimate hybrid synth, the new Sequential Prophet X should be at the top of your list.
