8Dio has announced a new “T8” Add-On pack for the Prophet X and Prophet XL, which is now available for download from their website. The download is approximately 1.53 GB.
The $48 Add-On pack features over 3,869 samples, 120 custom instruments, and 32 custom presets including Layer A and Layer B for each. The Add-On pack was created by deep-sampling Dave Smith’s own Prophet T8 synthesizer.
The Prophet T8 was one of Sequential’s flagship all-analog instruments created in the early 80s. Its full-size weighted keyboard combined with its range of features, from MIDI integration, velocity, aftertouch, a sequencer, and a variety of keyboard modes (Single/Split/Double/Unison) made it a milestone in both technology and instrument innovation. One of its main selling points, in addition to its unique and powerful sound capabilities, was its high-quality velocity sensitive keys featuring polyphonic aftertouch.
The “T8” Add-On pack requires Prophet X OS v2.1 or higher.
The Prophet X was designed to accommodate up to 50 GB of 16-bit, 48 kHz user-generated and third-party content. Imported sample content can be used to create custom instruments and patches. Sampled instruments can be augmented with the Prophet X’s own synthesis engine, which features 2 digital oscillators, stereo analog filters, and a multitude of sound-shaping controls.
