Arturia updates iProphet app for iOS to v1.1

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Dec 24, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Arturia has launched version 1.1 of iProphet, a synth app that recreates the unique sound of the classic Sequential Circuits Prophet VS synthesizer.

Arturia iProphet

The Prophet VS’s rareness and classic digital sound make it a mainstay for those who can find them and a seemingly out or reach dream for those who cannot. The sound is purely classic crisp digital sound that easily stands on its own, but at the same time is the perfect compliment to the sound of analog synthesizers.

It brings the crystaline vintage sound of four digital oscillators and allows sculpting them using a creamy & warm multimode filter. You can morph the sound of the 4 oscillators using the joystick or the vector mode and the vector envelope.

Changes in iProphet v1.1

  • Updated Audiobus to 2.1.5.
  • Updated for iOS8.
  • Fixed MIDI channel selector not showing devices opened if iProphet was opened before then.
  • Fixed the issue where every third oscillator would be the one before on preset load.
  • Fixed an issue where turning the Frequency knobs all the way to the right would act as if it was at 0.
  • Added the ability to delete custom presets.

iProphet is on sale for $4.99 USD until January 2nd, 2014 (50% off regular).
