Maybe...for sure there are 2 "Instruments" sections together with 2 OSCs sections, that "Instruments" look like imported samples, the "rompler" part of the synth, not sure if you fan create your own samples...

Here you can see an image of the synth:

Image of the synth on Synthtopia

Well it's a 5 octave keyboard (yeeeeaahh!!!), on the top right you can read 8DIO, this is a company which sells collections of high quality samples, so there are samples for sure on the Prophet X, but maybe you can only import new samples with an usb port and not create your own...not sure also about the OSC 1 and 2, are they DCO, VCO, Wavetables or VA oscillators? :dontknow:

Another thing that we can argue from the image is that there are 4 LFOs (on the left of the Instruments/OSCs sections), maybe only 1 analog filter (?????) with the digital ones hidden in the menu (??????), I'm saying this because it seems logical to have analog and digital filters on a synth like that...

Maybe it's a combination follow-up to the Prophet synth line but also the Prophet 2000/2002? That would be promising for sure. Some of that Prophet 2000 DNA would be great.

Except, it plays back samples. From SSD, is my bet. And it can import samples. Sample space is kinda dinky for four grand, tho. The other oscillators are 'digital'.
