Sequential Pro 3

Post by digitalganesha » Tue Jan 14, 2020 6:14 am

Well, since the leak is sort of out... here ya go. Pretty radical synth and design. 2020 is the year of the wavetable.

I regretted not picking up a Pro2 when they were still current; it had that "player's synth" quality to it on top of the programmability.

Looks my regrets are about to be washed away.

I like the rather cheeky nod to the old Model D layout too.

agreed. too bad that'll be a special edition. apparently $1599 for the standard one, $2099 for the wooden/hinged one.

here's the standard one:

wow, it's a mono. I wouldn't have guessed from the design!

Fuck me silly, this thing looks like what I thought synths were like as a kid, very futuristic / cyberpunk-y aesthetic, like the Tempest. I love it.

Between the Matriarch, Pro 3, and ARP 2600, I'm not going to be able to eat soon!

One thing I definitely don't need is another monosynth. /rushes off to pre-order :hyper:

Oh no...I’m very disappointed....no trace of Prophet X here...and 3 notes paraphonic, one less than the pro-2

And too moogish...no way

Yeah, I like the look of this way less than the Pro 2, having three filters is quite interesting though, as is the programmable analog distortion and tuned feedback from the Prophet 6 and DSM respectively. On paper I really like this synth, but it's really hard to love something that looks like mutable instruments crossed with a minimoog, kind of "nuts and gum" situation. Doesn't help that the pro-2 is one of the best-looking DSI designs.

Still, it's basically a modular system with three filters, programmable analog and digital effects, I'm guessing 3 voice polyphony (individual articulation through each of the filters), analog and digital oscillators, etc. I could see myself swapping out one of my modular cases for this... If only it wasn't so ugly!

Here are a couple of factory sounds I've programmed for the Pro 3:

Can it do osc to osc fm?

I'm in love. It's got some MASS to that sound.

Looks very cool! I love my Pro 2 and I'm glad to see they're following it up with something new. That's a nice amount of wavetables for the digital osc, and it's extra cool that you can use it at LFO rates. And a 32 slot matrix! Beautiful.

Some great sounds in there. How would you say it the oscillators and filters compare to the Pro 2?

I felt this way at first. It isn’t my wishlist successor. But I’m kinda glad. Not an upgrade or replacement for the 2, but a new companion. And moogish ladder filter, sure, but pushing wavetable thru it. Yum.

Interested in this as well!

Also I wonder how well the paraphonic mode works if you want the same wave shape for each note as opposed to cycling them. For example if you want all 3 oscillators to be squares, the digital one will almost invariably sound a bit different than the VCOs.

it's a feature

This is the first time that a synth makes me wish to be single. Guess I have to work harder for money and think much harder to convince her to let me own this babe.

About to preorder it for $1,440 but my method must remain a secret.
