Sequential Adds Patch Morphing to Pro 3 Multi-filter Mono Synth…
Sequential today announced a major enhancement to their acclaimed Pro 3 multi-filter mono synth — patch morphing. Users can now morph between two different sounds using one of the synthesizer’s many real-time controllers such as its mod wheel, touch slider, or key pressure. This provides many new possibilities for real-time expression and dramatic timbral variation.
To use the new feature, users will need to upgrade to version 1.2 of the Pro 3 operating system, which is currently available in pre-release or “Beta” format on the Sequential User Forum. The OS upgrade is provided free of charge to Pro 3 owners.
“The Pro 3 is already the deepest, most versatile mono synth we’ve ever designed — and we keep making it even more awesome,” said Sequential founder Dave Smith: “Now patch morphing takes live performance to a whole other planet. The sonic territory that lives between two different patches is pretty vast, and with real-time control of that, users will get to places they’ve never heard before.”
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 16-track sequencer, and the ability to connect with modular synths through its four control voltage ins/outs. The feature set 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 synth is also capable of 3-voice paraphonic operation.
Sequential is offering two versions of the Pro 3, the standard edition, and the Pro 3 SE, a special edition that puts the same synthesis power into a collector-worthy design with a tilt-up control panel and premium-grade walnut trim.
The Pro 3 standard edition has a US MAP of $1,599.
The Pro 3 SE has a US MAP of $2,099.
