This Prophet Has with Even More Vintage Style!

With the Dave Smith Instruments Prophet '08 PE (Potentiometer Edition), you get an evolution of a classic synth - with even more "vintage-style" control. That's because the Prophet '08 PE sports front-panel pots instead of the rotary controllers you'll find on the standard Prophet '08 - very cool. The Prophet 5 shook up music production as we know it... it's simply analog synth vibe personified. You'll find all that tasty, rich analog tone - with some new wrinkles thrown in for more functionality and sound-shaping capabilities, with your Dave Smith Instruments Prophet '08 PE.

Dave Smith Instruments Prophet '08 PE Analog Polysynth at a Glance:
  • Great new features
  • True analog
Great new features

The Prophet '08 PE Potentiometer Edition has eight voices with a classic 2-oscillator, 2/4 pole Curtis lowpass filter, VCA architecture, and 52 knobs to tweak. Prophet 08 goes well beyond the original Prophet by including Four LFOs, three envelopes, and a gated sequencer per voice. Each program has two layers, so the sounds can be easily stacked or split. A four-mode latchable arpeggiator is also included.

True analog

There are countless digitized imitations of analog synths out there, both in hardware and plug-in form. Many of them sound great, but nothing touches the real thing for true analog sound. Prophet 08 features an all-analog signal path and includeds an analog step sequencer. It looks like what you'd want the newest Prophet to look like, with a black chassis, wood end caps, white graphics, and slim black knobs with silver caps. The pitch and mod wheels are black, and are mounted on the panel.
