Pro 3 Standard Now Shipping!January 30, 2020 | Go back to previous page | Categorie(s): Products
Sequential is pleased to announce that the Standard Edition of the Pro 3 is now shipping! The Pro 3 is Sequential’s new flagship multi-filter mono/paraphonic synthesizer. A hybrid instrument, the Pro 3 features three classic analog filters (Prophet-6, OB-6, and ladder) and three oscillators (two VCOs and one wavetable oscillator) along with a powerful new 16-track sequencer, and the ability to connect with modular synths through its four control voltage ins/outs.
The Pro 3 features two voltage controlled oscillators with traditional triangle, saw, and pulse waves with waveshaping, and a third digital wavetable oscillator with 32 tables of 16 waves each and wave morphing. Three vintage-style filters shape the sound of the oscillators. Filter 1 is a 4-pole low-pass design based on the Prophet-6 filter. Filter 2 is a classic transistor ladder filter with optional resonance compensation to preserve its low-end punch. Filter 3 is a classic 2-pole, state-variable design based on the OB-6 filter that can be continuously varied between low-pass, notch, and high-pass operation, with an optional band-pass mode.
The feature set of the Pro 3 is rounded out with a multimode arpeggiator, three LFOs, four loopable ADSR+delay envelopes, dual digital effects (delays, reverbs, and various time-based effects), tuned feedback, analog distortion, and extensive modulation possibilities. The LFOs, delay, and arpeggiator can be synced to either the internal clock or an external MIDI clock. A programmable position-sensitive touch slider and pitch and mod wheels provide nuanced control over live performance. The synth is also capable of 3-voice paraphonic operation. This makes it possible to play 3-note chords where the three individual oscillators share a common filter and envelopes.
The sequencer provides 16-track sequences of up to 64 steps, with ratcheting, variable gate and sequence lengths, multiple playback modes, and paraphonic operation. It also syncs to MIDI clock and external audio input, and inputs/outputs control voltages. In addition to notes, sequence tracks can control any parameter in the 32-slot, 171-destination modulation matrix.
The Pro 3 is also compatible with modular synthesizers and other gear via its four rear-panel control voltage inputs and outputs.
The Pro 3 SE, a special edition version of the synthesizer is slated to begin shipping in late February. The Pro 3 SE puts the same synthesis power into a collector-worthy design that features a tilt-up control panel and full, premium-grade walnut trim.
The Pro 3 standard edition has a US MAP of $1,599.
The Pro 3 SE will have a US MAP of $2,099.
