Prophet 6 + Prophet 08 best bundle ever?

Post by Quai34 » Sat Dec 05, 2015 12:52 pm

Hi, I have a Prophet 08 that I bought just when the Prophet 6 was annonced and I don't regret it, still learning a lot on it.
But as my last synth to buy, as I already have all the synth/Brand/sound that I've always been dreaming of( stage 2, Nord Lead 2x, Yamaha TX 802, Roland D50, Oberheim Matrix 1000, Emu Proteus fully loaded card wise, Roland XV5080 and Nord C2 organ,is the prophet 6 will be the perfect last complement synth for my rig?
What do you think?
Let me know
Thanks

Hi, I've both the Prophet 6 and Prophet 08.

Originally I planned on selling the 08, but they're different animals and now I'm keeping both.

I've uploaded some video comparisons. They can sound very similar, or quite different, but they both have their areas of superiority.

To attempt to summarise in as few words as possible - Prophet 6 is more immediate and richer, Prophet 08 is deeper and more aggressive. (from my perspective anyway).

Take a look - hopefully it'll be enlightening.

I've placed it as a new thread here..
