Sequential have released a major enhancement to their acclaimed Pro 3 multi-filter mono synth — a full set of 32 new wavetables that significantly expand its sound palette. As a hybrid instrument, the Pro 3 features two VCOs plus a third, digital wavetable oscillator. The new wavetables are derived from an eclectic collection of sources including the Fairlight IIx, a vintage Sequential Circuits TOM drum machine, dual TAU 20-stage phasers, a boutique Frequency Shifter, an Equinox EQ Phaser, and classic 90’s-era Turbosynth sound design software. Also included are a selection of heavily processed acoustic instruments such as Chapman Stick and human voice.     

To showcase the new wavetables, Sequential is also providing an all-new bank of 128 sounds that put the wavetables to use. Each sound in the set includes, extensive modulation routings, effects setups, and its own accompanying sequence to demonstrate the sound in context. 

The new wavetables and sound bank are available for download free of charge on Sequential’s website. 

“Our whole concept behind the Pro 3 was to make it the deepest, best-sounding, most endlessly creative mono synth  you’ll ever own,” said Sequential founder Dave Smith: “And by continuing to expand its capabilities with new wavetables, new sound banks, and new software features like Patch Morphing, we’re not only keeping it fresh, we’re keeping firmly at the leading edge of hybrid synths. There’s no other way to say it: the Pro 3 is a beast.”

A hybrid instrument, the Pro 3 features three classic analog filters (Prophet-6, OB-6, and ladder) and three oscillators (two VCOs and one wavetable oscillator) along with a 16-track sequencer, and the ability to connect with modular synths through its four control voltage ins/outs. The feature set is rounded out with a multimode arpeggiator, three LFOs, four loopable ADSR+delay envelopes, dual digital effects (delays, reverbs, and various time-based effects), tuned feedback, analog distortion, and extensive modulation possibilities. The synth is also capable of 3-voice paraphonic operation. 

Sequential is offering two versions of the Pro 3, the standard edition, and the Pro 3 SE, a special edition that puts the same synthesis power into a collector-worthy design with a tilt-up control panel and premium-grade walnut trim. 

The Pro 3 standard edition has a US MAP of $1,599. 

The Pro 3 SE has a US MAP of $2,099.
