In the 1990s, PCM synths were at their peak, but club scene artists were already searching for a more flexible, analog sound, hinting at the coming analog revival of the 2000s. It was in this context that the Prophecy was announced in 1995, offering more flexibility and timbral capabilities than ever before heard. Defined by the cutting edge digital signal processing technology and a DSP chip formerly used exclusively for effects processing, the Prophecy Solo Synthesizer is now available as a software plugin, with the ease of use, polyphony, and modern features necessary for today’s music production.
Equipped with Oscillator Models from the MOSS Synthesis Engine
Prophecy for Mac/Win uses software to fully reproduce the original Prophecy’s MOSS (Multi-Oscillator Synthesis System) and is equipped with five of the seven total oscillator types.
Standard Oscillator for Analog Synth Sounds
This is a simulation of analog synth oscillators and is also equipped with Pulse Width Modulation (PWM), expanding the timbral capabilities beyond what is normally possible in analog.
Noise + Comb Filtering
This oscillator extracts tone components from white noise. Contrary to what some might think, this algorithm is capable of more than just noisy sounds. It offers a wide range of possibilities, from synthy basses to strings.
VPM (Variable Phase Modulation)
VPM creates rich harmonics by modulating the phase of a signal. The carrier’s phase is changed by the modulator, and the resulting signal is processed by the wave shaper, resulting in sounds with high frequency content.
Cross / Ring / Modulation and Sync
This oscillator is designed to replicate analog oscillators modulating one another. As a result, it can produce chiming, metallic sounds with rich harmonics like bells.
The physical modeling oscillator includes the three types below. All types feature the wide tonal range that is unique to physical modeling.
Brass Model Oscillator
This oscillator simulates brass instruments such as trumpets and trombones. It uses controllers like key velocity and mod wheel to modulate the strength of blowing into the mouthpiece, and can create performances that are similar to real brass instruments.
Reed Model Oscillator
This oscillator simulates woodwind instruments like saxophones and flutes. It uses controllers like key velocity and mod wheel to modulate the wind pressure, and can create performances that are similar to real woodwind instruments.
Plucked String Oscillator
This oscillator simulates plucked string instruments like guitar and bass. It can model different methods of picking the string, like using a pick or fingers, as well as modelling the condition of the strings, and the positions of strings that are played.
