Softube has introduced the latest in the Model series of software synthesizers. With a carefully modeled circuit, interactions, and performance of an industry-defining polyphonic synth from 1980, the Model 80 Five Voice Synthesizer aims to capture the genuine sound, feel, and experience of the Prophet 5 from Sequential.

It’s not overstating things to say that this five-voice synthesizer changed the future. The first synthesizer with a digital microprocessor to control the analog polyphonic synth engine and store sounds, it has graced hits from superstars such as Michael Jackson, Madonna, Peter Gabriel, Radiohead, The Cars, and countless others.

With great reverence and proven modeling expertise, we captured every detail of this storied synth’s circuit, interactions, and factory presets. The result is a revelation: the authentic sound, feel, and performance of an industry-defining instrument perfected for modern production. Like a prophecy from 1980 fulfilled, so cometh Model 80 Five Voice Synthesizer.
