Limited Edition of a Modern Classic
The Prophet 12 LE is a special numbered, limited edition of our acclaimed Prophet 12 Analog/Digital Hybrid synthesizer. It features a custom, arctic white finish with maple end caps, making it a visually striking contrast to the standard Prophet 12.
The Prophet 12 LE will be strictly limited to 100 instruments worldwide and will commemorate the last of these synthesizers that Sequential will create. After that, the Prophet 12 will no longer be available.
Each of the Prophet 12 LE’s voices is composed of a hybrid digital/analog architecture. With 12-voice polyphony, streamlined design, and sophisticated architecture, the Prophet 12 LE is ready to handle any sound you can dream up.
Prophet 12 LE Voice Architecture
The Prophet 12 LE’s hybrid voice has a digital front end followed by an all-analog signal path output. Each voice has four high resolution digital oscillators (plus a sub oscillator), a digital character effects section, a resonant Curtis low-pass filter, a high-pass filter, a tune-able feedback circuit, a four-tap delay line with feedback per line, four loopable five-stage envelope generators, four syncable LFOs with slew and phase offset, a sophisticated arpeggiator, and a sixteen slot modulation matrix with 26 mod sources and 97 modulation destinations. The Prophet 12 LE is packed with a plethora of sonic potential and power.
The digital oscillators can be amplitude modulated and frequency modulated with either standard or classic DX-style linear FM. They can be freely assigned in whatever operator and modulator configurations you would choose. You can even assign each of the oscillators to modulate LFOs, envelopes, and filters.
The Prophet Controls
The Prophet 12 LE’s sleek and instinctive interface invites full control of the synth. Every parameter is fully programmable and editable from the front panel. The controls are laid out in a coherent and logical fashion allowing quick and precise access in the studio and on stage.
The Prophet 12 LE’s full-sized, five-octave, semi-weighted keyboard with velocity and channel aftertouch is rugged without sacrificing great feel and playability. Two backlit, smooth and precise pitch and mod wheels are accompanied by two location and pressure sensitive touch sliders. The Prophet 12 LE offers a myriad of controls for creation and performance of its innovative sounds.
