Six of the best Hardware Synthesisers

Hardware synthesisers have made a comeback in recent years and are now an in-demand item for all studios. Here’s a MusicTech Buyer’s Guide covering the best six synths we have looked at in recent months…

BEST Analogue

DSI Prophet-6

We love a good remake, especially when it comes to classic synths – but when a company remakes something and improves it, then even better. Prophet-6 is the Prophet-5 reimagined, and it is sublime. The original ‘5’ was notable for its extras and the sequel will be noted for many more: and it’s these which set the Prophet-6 apart from other synths: the routing, flexibility, and the sequencer.

In his review, Andy Jones said: “Overall, Prophet-6 is a fantastic, solid, great sounding and easy (ish!) analogue poly synth. The modulation options are superb and surprisingly easy to get your head around. The effects are better than you might think – don’t be afraid of them. The Prophet-6 might not be the return of the Messiah, but it could well turn out to be an all-new synth god. ” Andy finally concluded: “TheProphet-6 is one of the brightest stars in a new era of classic synths.”
