Importing your own samples on the Sequential Prophet X hybrid synth is now possible

Sequential has come good on the promise of adding user-sample support for the heavyweight hybrid synths, Prophet X and Prophet XXL.

The instrument, which was developed with 8Dio, is now able to accept users’ own samples via an app developed by 8Dio itself. Importing and mapping is dealt with by the app, which is available for free.

Each version of the ‘X already comes with 150 GB of internal factory samples and the new updated feature will allow users to make use of the extra 50GB of space for 16-bit/48 kHz samples.

The free utility is currently in public beta and can be downloaded from the 8Dio website.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
