The tuning section
Like in real analog synths, VCOs, VCFs, ENVs and portamento times of each of the six voices are slightly and
individually (!) detuned by default. Four buttons let you tune or again untune each of these
sections individually for accuracy or analog feel, in any combination.
The VCOs' detuning can be altered too with the variable spread knob which also works in polyphonic mode. This gives you a level of control you have never experienced before!
Unisono and portamento
Stack all six voices at the touch of a button. Spread the voices if not detuned already.
Polyphonic(!) portamento is there too!

The modulation matrix
An lfo with sine, square and s/h lets you modulate VCOs, VCFs and pulsewidth. The mod amount
button for the VCOs has an extra designed double logarithmic response in the first quarter
for finest modulation control.
Crossmod, Sync and Ring Modulation
While X-Mod and Sync are available in the original, ring modulation is a special gift.
Unlike in many other VA synths, the Sync sound is outstanding.
The 12db SEM-based filter of the original is legendary and holds up to moog with different
and unique character. One of the great things of SEM filters is that they don't lose gain or
fullness at high resonance settings. This makes them sound very sweet even at high resonance settings.
You won't find self oscillation here but you will never miss it. Listen to the comparisons.
Stereo voice pans
This was a popular feature within old analog synths and you won't miss it here as well!
Every voice can be panned individually in the stereo field. This means real stereo and sounds
fantastic! Not to mention every panpot can be fully automated...
The unique arpeggiator
One thing the real deal misses. The opx arpeggiator is specially designed.
It's in fact a very intuitively handlable step sequencer. Every new played note
is saved in one of six steps which are continously read out in variable speed.
The number of read out steps can be varied as well.
Again a thing the real thing misses and a speciality of prophet synths. The filter
envelope can modulate notepitch and pulsewidth, positive or negative, oscillator selective or
not. Great in combination with velocity control of the filter envelope.
