Plugin Boutique has launched a sale on the Vector Pro, a virtual synthesizer instrument library by UVI, featuring the sounds of the Sequential Prophet VS and Yamaha SY22 vector synthesizer.
In the summer of 1986 a renowned American synth manufacturer released a machine with a remarkable new method of constructing sound. That machine was the Sequential Prophet VS and the method was vector synthesis. A ground-breaking instrument in its time and still a sought-after collectible to this day, the Prophet VS was ill-fated in the market for a number of reasons and its failure signaled the end of Sequential’s distinguished legacy. Needless to say the tonal range and sheer flexibility of the Prophet VS was brilliant.
The new digital vector synthesis engine was placed in front of an all-analog signal path with renowned Curtis amps and filters giving it incredible warmth and an unmistakable character. The palette of sounds that were possible with the VS was immense. Not only did it offer a world of never-before heard sounds but it could closely imitate both the analog classics and its modern digital peers alike.
Another first, the Prophet VS saw great emphasis placed on expressive control over a stereo sound stage allowing for great depth and dimension, leading in large part to it capturing the imagination of an entire generation of film composers including the seminal Vangelis and John Carpenter.
Vector Pro for the free UVI Workstation is available for 59 EUR/USD off until May 16th, 2017 (regular 149 EUR/USD).
