The Prophet '08 from Dave Smith Instruments is an eight-voice synthesizer with a 100% analog signal path. While the Prophet '08's overall sonic character will be familiar to anyone who knows Dave's work from the '70s and '80s, it is much more than just a vintage reissue with a few new bells and whistles. Dave has always said that he is only interested in moving forward. The Prophet '08 is the product of evolution, not nostalgia.
Of course, the analog synthesizer includes features we now take for granted, like velocity and aftertouch. Add to that performance features like an arpeggiator, gated step sequencer, and the ability to split and layer sounds. The modulation possibilities are much deeper than anything Sequential ever produced, making it capable of producing sounds the "classics" simply could not.

Comments about Dave Smith Instruments Prophet '08 Synthesizer:
Pure analog signal path, flexible modulation capabilities, 8 voice polyphony and featuring amazing Curtis filters give Prophet �ۡ���08 its ultimate sonic character and warm sound. Knobs are arranged and located in an ergonomic way so that sound programming is not complicated. Besides, if you have its editor program the sonic possibilities of this analog monster are just limited to your imagination. Layering concept of two programs, having arpeggiator, gated sequencer features give really flexible and fat results; creamy pads, strong basses, expressive leads. Keyboard action is good and comfortable. Cons: Presets could be better.
