When a punchy, fat sound is demanded, look no further. iProphet recreates the unique sound of the classic Sequential Circuits Prophet VS synthesizer.

The Prophet VS's rareness and classic digital sound make it a mainstay for those who can find them. The sound is purely classic crisp digital sound that easily stands on its own, but at the same time is the perfect compliment to the sound of analog synthesizers. iProphet brings the crystaline vintage sound of four digital oscillators and allows sculpting them using a creamy and warm multimode filter.

iProphet comes with over 500 presets created by some of todays best sound designers. Use it in Tabletop to compose your music. You can morph the sound of the 4 oscillators using the joystick or the vector mode and the vector envelope. You can also swap presets between iProphet and Arturia's Prophet V synthesizer which allows you to work on the iPad and finish in the DAW of your choice.

iProphet is a Tabletop Ready app. The connect menu allows you to connect iProphet to the Retronyms Tabletop app, giving you an integration with a complete studio environment. Tabletop also features add-ons for more effects and instruments from other 3rd party companies.

iProphet supports Core MIDI, interapp-audio as well as Audiobus technologies for perfect integration. The use of the brands 'Prophet' and 'Sequencial Circuits' is done with permission of Dave Smith Instruments.

Features Include:
- Vector screen with joysticks to mix oscillators and envelopes
- Super flexible Modulation Matrix
- 3 DSP effects (overdrive, delay, and chorus)
- 96 different wave forms to control pitch
- 4 filter types
- Vector envelope featuring loop points
- Unison/detune for beefy sounds
- Full user MIDI mapping of panel controls
- Tabletop Ready app
- Soundcloud seeder (via Tabletop)
- Render to .wav file (via Tabletop)
- AudioCopy to paste your audio into another iPad application (via Tabletop)

Was elated to have Lyle mays lead sound... UNTIL

I found out this thing is a nightmare in both auria and cubasis. It sounds good ... 3 1/2 stars. Here's my issue. Arturia. You have a lot of people here complaining about something that's not even getting commented on by you. You gave us a substandard product, charged us a pretty steep price , given the market..
And we did it on your reputation for delivering the real deal. This doesn't represent well. And makes customers wait to see if future products will be the same. Thusly you lose money. That, I'm sure you care about. Because I'm not going blindly in excitement about anything you do until I hear it and read consistent positive reviews... diminished return on ignored customers rarely flies well. Musicians are retry savvy. Come on guys. We ALL expect a lot more than that from your reputation. Please fix this app. Everyone commenting had so much hope to have a real prophet under the hood. And... wah wah. It royally bummed me out. I'd love a refund. Or to trade for one of your good synths. Fix it guys. This is just bad business.

Sounds good but not a good investment

I think it sounds great but it’s pretty much abandonware and any iOS synth that isn’t an audio unit is a bad investment. I love Arturia desktop synths and h ardware but lost all faith in them on the IPad platform. Once upon a time I’d instantly buy an IPad app from Arturia, but give how they completely shown they don’t deserve support from IPad users I don’t see myself buying anymore future apps from the especially if Retronyms is involved. I still use Isem, that’s the one app they didn’t abandon and that’s an au, probability because Retronymnns didn’t have anything to do with it.

Unfinished, buggy

This product is not in a fully finished state. There is no user wavetable support, as with the real VS, though there appear to be slots for them in memory. There are four pan knobs which don’t do anything (presumably for 8 notes of polyphony - it looks like this is limited to 4 notes; reminds me of Casio CZ101). Stuck notes occur, and patches change attributes just by up/down selection of patches - they seem to turn on or off their own mono/poly status (???!!!). Lots of glitches and clicks/pops. Sometimes weird whistling sounds.

I have the Arturia Synclavier V2 plugin for my laptop and it is truly world class (I learned the Synclavier in college so I have experience with the real thing). How this Arturia product remains so incomplete and buggy is a mystery to me. It’s almost as if it wasn’t designed by the same engineers.
