Prophet 5/10 Rev 4 vs Prophet 6

Blind test: Prophet 5/10 REV 4 vs Prophet 6

I usually make my own “VS” videos – this one, if you don’t mind, is a remix. Julian Pollack – or J3PO, a professional keyboard player, producer and sound designer, made an excellent comparison video between the Prophet 10 Rev 4 and the Prophet 6.

As I was watching it, I really connected with the “mojo” of the Prophet 10, but I have to admit that when I listened without looking at which of the two he was playing, I found the task of telling them apart much more difficult.

To me the real test of raw tone is a blind one, and both because I don’t have either synth and because Julian already did such a great job creating raw tones on both, I reached out and got his permission to make a blind test remix. Here’s the result:
