A Three-Generation Legacy

The Pro 3 SE is Sequential’s Special Edition of its new flagship
2-VCO + wavetable mono/paraphonic synth. It features a handsome,
multi-angle tilt-up panel and full premium-grade walnut trim.


The Power of 3

The Pro 3 SE boasts the same powerful sound engine as the standard
edition Pro 3: three oscillators, three vintage filters, three LFOs,
four loopable envelopes, a massive 32-slot mod matrix, and a 16 x 16 x 4
sequencer. Throw in dual digital effects and four control voltage ins
and outs, and you’ve got a hugely powerful instrument that’s as exciting
to program as it is to play.


A Next-Generation Classic

The Pro 3 SE is a hybrid of solid, old-school analog synthesis paired
with versatile digital technology. Its two voltage controlled
oscillators provide warmth and presence while its third wavetable
oscillator provides digital edge and grit. With 32 tables of 16 waves
each and wave morphing, tonal possibilities are immense. Tuned feedback
with grunge, and analog distortion deliver industrial-grade nastiness on
demand.


Three Filters Based on Vintage Designs

At the heart of the Pro 3 SE’s ballsy sound are its vintage-style
filters. Filter 1 is a 4-pole low-pass design based on the Prophet-6
filter. Filter 2 is a classic transistor ladder filter with optional
resonance compensation to preserve its low-end punch. Filter 3 is a
classic 2-pole, state-variable design based on the OB-6 filter that can
be continuously varied between low-pass, notch, and high-pass operation,
with an optional band-pass mode. An additional Drive control provides
still more punch when you really want to get down and dirty.


Expressive Sequencing

Possibly the Pro 3 SE’s most powerful performance tool is its
sequencer. With 16 tracks, 16 steps, and 4 phrases, it features both
real-time and step input, ratcheting, variable gate and sequence
lengths, multiple playback modes, and paraphonic operation. It also
syncs to MIDI clock and external audio input, and inputs/outputs control
voltages. In addition to notes, sequence tracks can control any
parameter in the 171-destination modulation matrix.


Plays Well with Modulars

The Pro 3 SE’s flexible architecture opens the door to not only
processing external audio, but also to interfacing with modular synths
through its 4 rear-panel control voltage inputs/outputs and a dedicated
gate output. Control voltages can be assigned and routed from within the
modulation matrix and can run at audio rates for extreme modulation
effects. Some of the many parameters that can be sent to the CV outputs
include oscillators, LFOs, envelopes, and sequencer tracks, allowing the
Pro 3 to become the central hub of a modular or multi-synth setup.


Effects, Envelopes, LFOs, an Arpeggiator, and Extreme Modulation

The Pro 3 SE’s Effects section provides delays, reverbs, time-domain
effects such as chorus/phasing/flanging and more. There are four
loopable five-stage envelope generators, three syncable LFOs with slew
and phase offset, a full-featured arpeggiator, and a 32-slot modulation
matrix with dozens of modulation sources and over a hundred
destinations.


Monophonic and Paraphonic Operation

The Pro 3 SE was designed to be a super-powerful monosynth, but it is
also a versatile 3-voice paraphonic synth. This makes playing 3-note
chords not only possible, but with creative use of effects and some
per-oscillator modulation, very expressive.


Put all of this sonic power in a three-octave, semi-weighted keyboard
with velocity and channel aftertouch, add backlit pitch and mod wheels
and a location-sensitive touch slider, and you’ve got one of the most
inspiring synths ever made.
