Please Note: Our Prophet 2000/2002 sounds are now available as "Disk Images" only and delivered by our free "Download Delivery". Please check the above link, which fills you in on exactly how it works. We've tried to provide the sounds on floppy disks for as long as possible. However, I'm sorry to say that we have discontinued delivering libraries on floppy disk. The good news is the disk image files are exactly the same as the floppys and cost half as much. You just have to create your own floppys from the images. We provide a app that lets you do that. Or, if you have a USB Floppy Drive Emulator connected to your sampler that replaces the floppy drive, you can save the images to that device and load the sounds from that.

Sequential Circuits continued their innovative musical instrument designs when in 1986 they released the Prophet-2000 digital sampler. At the time, there were only a handful of affordable samplers on the market. Ensoniq had just released the Mirage and EMU was having great success with their Emulator-II. However, both of these were 8 bit machines. The Prophet was the first affordable 12 bit sampler which meant that it sounded a lot better then the Mirage or EII. Not only was it the first twelve bit sampler, but it was also the first true multitimbral instrument. At the time, all the other MIDI devices on the market would only respond on a single MIDI channel, the Prophet responded on all 16 Midi channels.

Once the word got around about the great sound and multitimbral features, keyboards players lined up to purchase the P2000. It sold very well for Sequential. When they released the Prophet-2002 rackmount version a few months later, they doubled the memory capacity to 512K. You could also buy an extra 256K for your 2000. The 2002 had some other improvements over the 2000. it responded to aftertouch and a more stable OS. Both the Prophet-2000 and 2002 have analog VCF's and VCA's which give you analog programming control over the sounds you sample.

Sequential continued development of the P2000 sampling concept, and by the US Winter NAMM show of 1987, they were showing the Studio 440, a combination sampling drum machine/sequencer with built-in trigger pads. The Studio 440 didn't have to wipe sequencer memory to make a new sample (like the Linn 9000), it was affordable and it loaded Prophet 2000 samples straight from floppy disk. The Studio 440 actually offered several improvements over the design of the 2000. The division of the memory into two separate chunks was gone, so you could now use the whole 512K to make a single 12-second sample if you wanted to.

Sequential Studio-440

On a personal note, the Prophet-2000 was my first digital sampler which I got directly from Barbara Fairhurst at Sequential Circuits. I was well known at Sequential for being the guy with the Rev-1 Prophet-5 (serial #101) which never worked right. It was in for repairs so many times that Sequential practically gave me a new Prophet 2000 to make up for all the problems I had with the Prophet-5. Great customer support. Thanks Barbara! When I first received the Prophet, I can remember loading in the factory drum kit disk and hearing drum sounds on a keyboard for the first time just blew me away. It was one of those musical moments that I won't forget.

The Kid Nepro sound library is available on floppy disks and compatible with the Prophet-2000, Prophet-2002, Studio-440 and the Oberheim DPX-1 sample player. Note that some disks are 256k and others are 512k so check your Prophet to make sure you have 512k memory before ordering any of the disks marked 512K.
