Free Prophet 12 Ableton Instruments

Dave Smith's Prophet 12 is one of the most buzzworthy keyboards of 2013. It's arguably the deepest analog-hybrid polysynth ever released - and since all of my previous packs have used single note samples, I decided to create a pack entirely from chord stabs.

Because chord stabs are all the rage with the kids these days.

I'm also breaking with tradition and including twelve presets instead of the usual six. See what I did there?

Since there are so many chord types and P12 patches in this collection, I'm just going to skip the usual descriptors and let you dive into this Simpler pack on your own. I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed.

All of instruments are in default mode, with filtering, LFOs and envelopes off. No looping. Full length samples, some have a touch of vibrato at the end.

Here's the Ableton Live file containing the presets.

(compatible with Ableton Live 8.1.5 and higher)

Btw, if you want to stay on top of these releases, follow me on Facebook.

Note 1: If you like any of these sounds and want to keep them for future tracks, just click the little save button in the upper right corner of the Simpler and add it to your library (it will copy the waves too).

Note 2: If you don't use Ableton and just want the C3 samples, you can download the file and fish the waves out of the "Samples" folder, then use them in your DAW or sampler of choice.
