Dave Smith Prophet Rev2 8-Voice Desktop
The Dave Smith Prophet Rev2 8-Voice Desktop Module is an 8-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer that builds upon the success of the original Prophet ’08 synthesizer, but with an improved design and enhanced features. The Prophet REV2 retains all the sound capabilities — including two digitally controlled analog oscillators (DCO) per voice (plus octave on oscillator 1) — with selectable sawtooth, triangle, saw/triangle mix, and pulse-wave and pulse-width modulation, as well as the signature analog Curtis low-pass filter with 2-/4-pole selections (resonating in 4-pole mode). Additionally, the synthesizer offers three envelope generators to control the filter and VCA, with the 3rd being assignable and offering ADSR + delay and loop capabilities.
Other notable features include the doubling of the modulation matrix, waveshape modulation on all waveforms, digital effects per layer in stacked or split voice mode, a polyphonic step sequencer per layer, and more. The Prophet REV2 is compatible with any existing libraries or patches from the Prophet ’08. The instrument has inputs for a sustain pedal and expression pedal, which doubles as an input for control voltage for further sonic manipulation. Four 1/4″ unbalanced TS outputs provide audio output, while a stereo 1/4″ headphone connection allows for playing in quiet environments. The Dave Smith Instruments Prophet REV2 8-Voice Module can be expanded to 16 voices by installing the optional Expander Kit.
