    Wie klingt es ? Soundsample

    Grab on to the world’s foremost guitar preamp, the Rocktron Prophesy. Nothing compares to this outstanding DSP processor that provides the ultimate control over your tone and effects. Guitar Player Magazine wrote that the Prophesy "provides unprecedented depth and flexibility. From a pure processing standpoint, the Prophesy is a tremendously powerful tone-shaping tool."

    The depth is truly amazing and the control is top notch. As Guitar Player wrote: "If you’re a player who yearns for extreme real-time control…my prediction is you’ll go nuts over the Prophesy."

    Take the Top 4 guitar sounds used in today’s music:

    Clean American
    Texas Blues
    Vintage British
    Mega Drive
    And combine them with the best sounding effects available:

    Ducker Delay
    Reverb
    Tremolo
    Chorus
    Flanger
    Phaser
    Compressor
    Wah Wah
    Pitch Shifter
    Rotary Speaker Simulator
    ....and you have the most versatile, powerful, user friendly, all in one guitar signal processing system available - ever!

    The Prophesy is even more than that!

    Features:

    Dynamic Tube Replication Technology (DTR)
    User Definable Effect Configurations
    User Assignable Stereo Effect Loop
    Tap Tempo Delay and Tremolo
    Built-in Chromatic Tuner
    Stereo XLR Outputs
    Real Amp Knobs for On-The-Fly Tone, Volume and Preset Adjustments
    "Pluck Detector" (patent-pending) and ADSR for Dynamic Effect Control
    Pre and Post Distortion and Global EQ
    Pre Distortion Effects and Post Distortion Effects
    Programmable Speaker Simulator w/ Parameters for Speaker Size, MIC Position, Reactance
    Preamp Section

    The preamp section of the Prophesy features four channels each with their own distinct "voicings" to provide a vast array of desired tube amp sounds. Each voicing may be thought of as a "channel" and each channel has it’s own basic gain and master controls with bass, mid, treble and presence controls, all easily accessible with "real amp" knobs on the front panel, just like a regular amp head.

    Channel 1 or Clean American, replicates some of the most sought-after clean vintage tweed amps of the late 50’s and 60’s.
    Channel 2 or "Texas Blues", is a vintage tweed with a bit more "kick" and "bite" often heard from the famous southwest bluesers ala "Billy Gibbons, Stevie Ray, Eric Johnson, Etc.".
    Channel 3 or "Vintage British", is a traditional "Plexi Style" tone offering some of the most dynamic rhythm tone available.
    Channel 4 or "Mega Drive" is considered the Holy Grail of almighty heavy tone of modern music pumping out everything from early Van Halen to Megadeth and everything in between.
    The preamp section also features a parametric Pre EQ, which allows you to "pre-shape" your tone to simulate the characteristics of several different guitars (such as fine-tuning your Strat to sound more like a Les Paul, Etc) as well as an additional parametric Post EQ to add extra Lows, High, or scoop out the Mids. And if that’s not enough, we also included a Global Parametric EQ which adjust the overall output of the Prophesy on all presets.

    Effects Section

    The effects section of the Prophesy is divided up into two sections, Pre distortion (or pre-preamp), and post distortion (or post preamp) for unlimited configurations of effects. The pre-effects section features Wah, Compressor, HUSH(r), Pre-EQ, as well as one assignable effect of your choice. The post-effects section provides ultra-transparent, high-quality effects which completely preserve the tone of the preamp-thick reverbs and lush choruses can be used without coloring the sound of the preamp’s tone. Four assignable "effect blocks" allow you to assign 1 effect pre-preamp and 3 post preamp effects in any order you choose, including Phaser, Flanger, Chorus, Pitch Shift, Rotary Speaker, Ducker Delay, etc. Prophesy also features a versatile mixer section to control the mix between dry and wet signal output of every effect used in the preset.
    If the effects in the Prophesy are not enough, we included a true stereo effect loop which may be assigned anywhere in the effect chain just like an internal effect. Want just an incredibly powerful effect processor? Just bypass the preamp section completely and use the Prophesy a stand-alone effect unit.

    The ADSR (Attack/Decay/Sustain/Release) function features Rocktron’s Pluck Detection patent-pending, and allows you to configure any of the Prophesy parameters to be controlled dynamically by each pluck of a guitar string. More about the ADSR as Guitar Player Magazine says: "it’s an incredibly musical application that is very different from the usual expression-pedal tricks. You could do some groundbreaking stuff with this killer function!"

    Other features include a visual representation of the assigned effects signal chain, preset title, the voicing (channel) being used, are all conveniently displayed on the first preset page. The buttons in the 16 button matrix show the effect status (in or out) as well as allow you to instantly jump to those effects’ parameter pages for instant adjustment.

    Of course, the Prophesy maintains the high quality operational features that Rocktron processors are well known for, such as glitch-free preset switching with no signal drop out or lag time and the most natural sounding effects.

    For more in-depth information on the Prophesy, see the instruction manual in the SUPPORT section of this website.

    Wie's aussieht ein schönes Spielzeug. Klingt nicht schlecht, aber ich hätte mir schon gewünscht dass Rocktron Röhren eingebaut hätte. :D

    Gruß Andi.

    Hi Andi,

    das Prophesy ist jetzt nicht wirklich neu, und ich haette es auch schoener gefunden wenn du selbst was dazu geschrieben haettest (oder zumindest uebersetzt), denn die Beschreibung kann man so auch auf der Rocktronseite lesen (ein Link waere da angebracht gewesen, so als Quellenangabe ;) ).

    doch doch, da ist eine ECC83 drin wie beim vooduvalve. den/das prophesy gibts seit 1999. berühmtester long-time user ist wohl dave mustaine. die sound-samples auf der rocktron-seite geben dem gerät keinen guten kredit, auf www.proguitar.de gabs mal ein 6MB zusammenschnitt, der zeigt, was das gerät wirklich kann - und zwar so einiges.
