A review of the Arturia Prophet V3 synth plugin, via Pastel Sonic, my new music production page on Instagram. If you need a beat, a mix, or help with songwriting or arrangement please leave a comment or hit me up on Instagram! I look forward to working with you.
TMoog. Dave Smith. Roland. These have been the biggest names in the synthesizer world since it began decades ago, but Arturia, just under 20 years old, may well have joined them in the Pantheon with its emulations of the formers’ flagship instruments (to say nothing of their own proprietary synthesizers!).
The Arturia Prophet V emulates both the Prophet 5 and Prophet VS, two of Dave Smith’s Sequential Circuits creations, bringing the fantastic and fantastically expensive synthesizers to your DAW for under $200. Including all the programmability of the originals plus expanded polyphony, modeled outboard effects and total MIDI controllability, Arturia may even have improved upon the originals. While the vintage synthesizer may not be capable of the otherworldly sounds more modern instruments such as Massive or Serum, it can nonetheless deliver pads, leads and thick synthesizer keyboard parts that sound as great today as their analog predecessors did in the 70’s.
If you're interested in my work and want to work with me, please follow me on Instagram and send a DM! I'm excited to work with fellow Steemians. I've also posted a demo of one of my beats below, as an example of my work. This one is Pastel Beat 009.
