When you say analogue synth, you say Sequential. Their latest creation is Take 5, a polyphonic analogue synthesiser that promises to be a staple for iconic sounds over the coming years.
An extremely powerful tool in your arsenal, the Take 5 is a 5-voice Poly Synth with 2 VCOs and a sub oscillator per voice, a classic 4-pole resonant analogue filter from the Prophet-5 rev 4 design, 44 full-size keys on a premium Fatar keybed. The synth's key-split feature allows you to divide the 3.5 octave keyboard into two different zones. To top it all off, you will have access to dual digital effects and FM synthesis, to experience all the nuances of Sequential power, from vintage to modern
- 5-voice polyphonic analogue synthesiser
- Two analogue VCOs per voice
- Front-panel FM (frequency modulation)
- Four-pole resonant analogue filter based on Prophet-5 Rev 4 design
- Two 5-stage envelope generators (ADSR + delay) with variable routing (filter, amplifier, gate)
- Digital effects include dedicated reverb, multi-effect (delay, BBD delay, chorus, phaser and more), dedicated overdrive effect
- Vintage knob to recreate the typical analogue sounds via micro-variations
- 44 full-sized key on Fatar keybed that can be split into two performance sections
- Built-in 64-steps sequencer and multimode arpeggiator
ALL OF SEQUENTIAL IN ONE SYNTH
The Take 5 was designed for all those who haven't had the chance to experience Sequential's analog legacy so far. It packs up many of the features that made Sequential a leader in the field, like Prophet-5 Rev 4 design's 4-pole filter, per-voice LFOs and a polyphonic 64 steps sequencer.
A POWERFUL SOUND ENGINE
The Take 5 is based on 2 voltage-controlled oscillators that provide all traditional wave shapes like saw, sine and pulse wave that you can model and enrich with the additional FM engine. The iconic filter shapes the oscillator and sub oscillator sound in classic fashion, while the Drive control adds some fantastic grit to it. Sequential also added a Vintage knob that adds variation to the filter, oscillators and envelope behaviour from voice to voice.
Take 5 also includes two LFOs, one global and one per-voice, ADSR and delay envelopes, dual digital effects (a dedicated reverb and a suite of time-delay and other effects) a separate additional overdrive effect, and extensive modulation possibilities.
If this wasn't enough, you can also enjoy a 64-step sequencer and a multimode arpeggiator.
