Sequential has gone large with the Prophet X and added a larger keyboard and doubled the polyphony with a new performance mode.

The Prophet XL is a 76-key version of the flagship Prophet X and features the same samples-plus-synthesis hybrid engine. Featuring a premium-quality Fatar keybed, the XL now adds a semi-weighted action, which should appeal to the performers.

In addition, the new performance mode increases polyphony to 32 voices when using a single sampled instrument and a single oscillator. In standard performance mode, the instrument provides bi-timbral, 8-voice-stereo, or 16-voice mono operation.

Dave Smith commented: “We designed the Prophet XL for musicians who wanted more of a good thing. By adding an extended, semi-weighted action keyboard and enabling 32-voice performance mode, we’ve made it even more satisfying to play the acoustic and electric pianos and other instruments where increased polyphony is crucial. We’re making 32-voice mode available on the Prophet X, as well, so that all of our users will benefit.”

Both hybrid Prophets- Prophet XL and Prophet X provide 50 GB of internal storage for importing ad-ditional samples and support for user-created sample content is still on the cards and should be arriving in December, 2018.

The Sequential Prophet XL will be available in November of 2018

Yamaha MODX7 76-Key Synthesizer

Yamaha has unveiled a brand new synthesizer workstation, the MODX. This synthesizer workstation replaces the MOFX in their product range. The MODX is a new mid-priced synth with the Montage’s sound engine: AWM2 (Advanced Wave Memory 2) sampling and synthesis engine and eight-operator FM-X engine.

The AWM2 section can have up to eight elements, made up of either sample waveforms or oscillators, and is 128-voice polyphonic. The FM-X engine offers eight-operator FM synthesis with 88 algorithms and 64-voice polyphony. Via Yamaha’s online converter app, the MODX can load patches from the company’s classic FM synths, such as the DX7.

The MODX features Yamaha’s Motion Control system and Super Knob controller. This is effectively a multi-use macro controller that can handle complex automation and morphing between layers. For more detailed parameter editing and control, the MODX includes a 7-inch central touchscreen. There is also a complex arpeggio system and multiple performance ‘scenes’ to aid live playing.

In addition, the MODX also features a professional 4-in/10-out, multi-channel USB audio interface. Along with its built-in sample library, the MODX contains 1GB flash memory for user sample upload. It is expandable, with more sound content available from Yamaha.

The MODX is lightweight and is available now in MODX6 61-key, MODX7 76-key semi-weighted and the 88-key Weighted Action Synthesizer  MODX8 comes in at a svelte 30.4 lb.
