Prophet 12 Mojo in a Space-saving Module

Everything you love about the Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 12 is in the Prophet 12 Module, in a compact format you can fit in your backpack. It's got the same voice board, the same analog filters, and even most of the same back-panel connections as its big brother. On top of flexible oscillators and awesome filters, the Prophet 12 Module's unique feedback section alone has every synth fan at here at Sweetwater wishing they had one. Factor in powerful wave-shaping and sound-sculpting capabilities, per-voice four-tap stereo delays, an arpeggiator, and bi-timbral operation, and you've got an ideal synth for both production and performance.

  • Designed by an synth legend
Mind-blowing sonic firepower

Dave Smith Instruments' Prophet 12 Module packs stunning firepower. The sonic range of this synth's voice architecture is staggering. With 48 oscillators in the engine room (plus 12 sub-oscillators), there's no limit to your creativity. And once you've created a patch (or grabbed one of the awesome-sounding presets), you get a universe of deep modulation and effects options to massage it into something never heard before. In addition to the Character section, the Prophet 12 Module offers an army of envelopes, LFOs, delays, and an arpeggiator that can all be synced.

Shape your sounds intuitively with Character

The Prophet 12 Module's Character section gives you powerful, intuitive wave-shaping and sound-sculpting control. With parameter descriptions like Drive, Hack, Decimation, Girth, or Air, there's little left to the imagination as to what it'll do to your sound. Prepare to be amazed. And delighted.

Designed by a synth legend

Dave Smith was the design engineer and driving force behind Sequential Circuits, whose first product was the legendary Prophet 5 in 1977 - the first polyphonic synthesizer capable of storing the value of every parameter within its voicing and control systems. This was a watershed technological breakthrough, and the implications were staggering. Think about this: before the Prophet 5, it simply wasn't possible to enter a patch number into a synth and recall sounds you had stored. The Prophet 5 and its successors were hugely successful, finding their way into every top studio and major act's keyboard rig, and onto countless recordings by artists as diverse as Madonna and Weather Report! Impressive, yes - but Dave also had a hand in inventing a little thing called MIDI.

Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 12 Module Polyphonic Synthesizer Features:
  • 12 voices, each with four oscillators, sub-oscillator, low- and highpass filters, and analog VCAs
  • Character section adds a variety of wave shaping and sound sculpting options
  • Tuned feedback path, a four-tap stereo delay per voice, expanded arpeggiator functionality
  • Deep modulation capabilities, bi-timbral operation
  • Four LFOs and four envelopes per voice for extensive modulation possibilities
  • LFOs, delay, and arpeggiator can all be synced
  • Easy to integrate, with USB and MIDI in/out/thru
Dave Smith Instruments' Prophet 12 Module is a sonic beast!

Incredibly deep synthesizer

Just around the holidays DSI released a new update to the OS, which adds 4 oscillator linear FM. So now we have an instrument that combines full FM and wave table capabilities in the oscillator section, passes the output of those through the renowned Curtis filter stage, and adds state of the art digital processing for various forms of distortion and delay processing. Add the truly versatile modulation matrix, and you've got one of the most capable electronic instruments ever created in front of you. If anything, try to get away from the traditional "Prophet" territory to discover the true potential of this instrument!


After some technical problems with power supply (promptly replaced), I can say it is a wonderful synth. Great sounds, easy to use, intuitive menu and very robust. Cons are not angled connections, what makes it difficult to install in rack (also the price for rack mounting ears is unreal).
