To control Omnisphere using the Prophet ’08, you’ll need to do the following:

  • Connect the Prophet ’08 to your MIDI interface.

  • Set up the front panel controls to send NRPNs.

  • Make certain your MIDI interface is configured as the input in the host software you’re using (DAW, Standalone, etc.).

  • Activate the Prophet ’08 Hardware Profile in Omnisphere 2.6.


  • Press the GLOBAL button so the red LED is ON.
  • Then press +Yes button to reach the MParam Send page.
  • Using the Param 1 knob, set MParam Send to “NRPN.”


Open your host (DAW, Standalone, etc.) and make sure the Prophet ’08 is enabled as a MIDI input device.

Omnisphere Standalone Pro Tools


Open Omnisphere and from the header, select the HW menu button:

From the drop-down menu, select “DSI – Sequential>Sequential Prophet ’08” to activate that hardware profile.

Unassigned Controls

The following Prophet ’08 controls have no effect on Omnisphere:

  • Master Volume
  • Gated Sequencer


Not working? Here are some things to try:

  • Is the front panel of the Prophet ’08 set up to transmit MIDI?
  • Is your DAW receiving MIDI from the Prophet ’08?
  • If you are using the Omnisphere standalone host, make sure the MIDI output channel of the Prophet ’08 matches the MIDI channel of the Omnisphere part you want to control.
  • Make sure your DAW is configured to correctly route the MIDI output of the Prophet ’08 to the MIDI channel assigned to the desired Part in Omnisphere.
