GRENOBLE, FRANCE: music software and hardware developer Arturia is proud to announce availability of iProphet 1.1 — updating its innovative iOS soft synth to include changes and additions.
Released earlier this year as an authentic emulation of the trailblazing Eighties-vintage Sequential Prophet VS Digital Vector Synthesizer — albeit one given a truly 21st Century virtual makeover fit for Apple’s popular iPad platform, the award-winning iProphet has been updated to version 1.1. Notable updates include compatibility with iOS 8 and also the latest version (2.1.5) of the (separately-sold) Audiobus app that provides next-generation live app-to-app audio routing. Arturia’s additional changes ensure a smoother workflow for all.
As before, iProphet includes hundreds of presets from top sound designers, all conveniently categorised to help get the creative juices freely flowing. Fortunately for the musical masses, it is easier than ever to access those history-making Vector Synthesis sounds thanks to Arturia’s innovative iProphet now that it is increasingly difficult to acquire an original Prophet VS Digital Vector Synthesizer due to the high prices that they can command. Take a trip down musical memory lane by taking a trip to Apple’s App Store to make a trouble-free online purchase — and all for not much more than the price of a glossy monthly magazine! Why wait?
Owners of Apple’s iPad 2 (or above) can now purchase and download the latest version of iProphet from Apple’s App Store for a celebratory 50% discount — returning to €8.99 EUR/$9.99 USD on January 2, 2015 — from here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/iprophet/id898449685?mt=8
About Arturia (www.arturia.com)
Founded in Grenoble, France, in 1999, Arturia specialises in the development of music software and hardware for professional and amateur musicians alike. Focusing on innovation, the company strives to integrate the latest advances in computer music research and technology into its products.This involves working closely with partner research institutions, such as IRCAM France, in the development of cutting-edge musical instruments and software, which have gone on to be used in making many hit records and Hollywood soundtracks. One of Arturia’s core technologies is TAE® (True Analog Emulation), an advanced proprietary technology allowing accurate modelling of analogue circuitry behaviour on personal computers. Developed by Arturia’s in-house Signal Processing team, this technology has been employed to successfully recreate the sounds produced by many classic analogue synthesizers. Having successfully launched Origin, its first hardware synthesizer (housing several synth classics and associated components in one powerful, no-holds-barred DSP-based modular system), and the hybrid hardware/software SPARK Creative Drum Machine (cleverly combining analogue synthesis, physical modelling, and samples with the intuitive workflow of a hardware drum machine), 2012 saw Arturia introducing the cost-conscious MiniBrute, an amazingly compact and bijou analogue monosynth (boasting MIDI, USB, and CV connectivity together with a host of unique features).Today Arturia has broadened its appeal further still by successfully entering the iOS soft synth market and building upon its analogue synth and hybrid hardware/software successes.
