Dave Smith Instruments Prophet '08 PE Keyboard Synthesizer

With real analog oscillators, famed Curtis low-pass filters, and analog VCAs, the Prophet '08 is capable of reproducing the familiar sounds of its legendary predecessors.

But modern features like a greatly expanded modulation matrix and additional modulation sources-such as three envelopes and four LFOs per voice-take it way beyond vintage gear and make it a worthy and unique addition to the Prophet family tree.

Features include a gated 16 x 4 step sequencer, arpeggiator, split or stacked key modes with separate stereo outputs per layer, and rack ears for optional rack-mounting. The Prophet '08 module can also be used as an expander to increase the polyphony of another Prophet '08-keyboard or module-to 16 voices.

The Prophet '08 PE (potentiometer edition) has all the features of the standard Prophet '08, but many of the front panel's rotary controls use potentiometers (AKA "pots") for more "vintage-style" control. (The standard Prophet '08 primarily uses rotary encoders.)

    Let's party like it's 1983!
    It's been 1 year since I bought the Prophet 08. This keyboard is amazing. DCO instead of VCO ? I don't care ! It has a complete analog path + MIDI capability -- the perfect combination of vintage analog and today's digital technology. I also have DSI's Mopho synth. Big thumbs up to Dave Smith Instruments !

    My last release was completely made with the Prophet 08:
