Overview

The Prophet Rev2 is Dave Smith’s reimagining of his Prophet ’08 poly synth, a modern classic that has appeared on countless recordings and stages since its debut in 2007. The Prophet Rev2 retains all of the key features of the Prophet ’08 with twice the polyphony, twice the mod matrix, waveshape modulation on all waveforms, digital effects per layer in stacked or split voice mode, a polyphonic step sequencer per layer, and more. Best of all, you can download any of the many existing libraries of Prophet ’08 sounds and they not only sound identical, but are enhanced with the new features.

16-Voice Polyphony
With 16 voices to play with, you have the freedom to allocate them as you wish. Play two-fisted chords, stack two 8-voice sounds for massive, complex textures, or split the keyboard into two completely separate 8-voice instruments.

Bold Sound
The Prophet Rev2 gets its bold, punchy sound from its 2/4 pole, low-pass, resonant Curtis filters per voice. These are the same filters used in the Prophet ’08, as well as many classic instruments of the '70s and '80s. A separate Audio Mod control adds additional harmonic complexity and movement.

Waveshape Modulation
You can now vary the "pulse width" of any of the four waveforms (sawtooth, saw+tri, triangle, square). Using the Shape Mod control, you can dial in a desired waveshape width or use an LFO or other mod source for continuously shifting timbre. Even single-oscillator sounds take on new depth and dimension.

Extended Mod Matrix

Also present from its predecessor is an easy-to-assign Mod Matrix, now twice as big, with eight individual slots and many more sources/destinations. It’s a veritable sound designer’s playground.

Poly Step Sequencing
The polyphonic step sequencer allows up to 64 steps and up to six notes per step. You can create a different sequence for each layer when you are working in stacked or split voice mode, making it a powerful tool for composition or performance. The sequencer also functions as a modulation source in gated mode, allowing you to create up to four different 16-step sequences for complex modulation. Sequences allow ties and rests, and can sync to an external MIDI clock. The arpeggiator features note repeats, re-latching, and can be synced to external MIDI clock, as well.

All of this polyphonic power is packed into a five-octave, premium-quality, semi-weighted keyboard with velocity and channel aftertouch. Other road-worthy features include an integrated power supply, USB support and a crisp OLED display, making the Prophet Rev2 an ideal instrument for gigging or recording, and an analog powerhouse like no other.

Features

  • 2 digitally controlled analog oscillators (DCOs) per voice (plus sub octave on oscillator 1) with selectable sawtooth, triangle, saw/triangle mix, and pulse waves (with pulse-width modulation)
  • 1 analog Curtis low-pass filter per voice, selectable 2- and 4-pole operation (self-resonating in 4-pole mode)
  • 3 envelope generators: filter, VCA, and assignable (four-stage ADSR + delay); Envelope 3 can loop.
  • Polyphonic step sequencer with up to 64 steps (6 notes per step), and ties and rests. Separate 16 x 4 gated step sequencer. Each layer can have a separate sequence.
  • 4 LFO’s with key sync per LFO
  • 8-slot modulation matrix
  • Programmable arpeggiator with up, down, up+down, random, assign modes
  • 5-octave keyboard with semi-weighted action, velocity, and aftertouch
  • 52 knobs and 20 buttons enable comprehensive editing with little menu diving.
  • Spring-loaded pitch wheel and assignable mod wheel
  • 512 Factory Programs (4 banks of 128) and 512 fully editable User Programs with 2 layers (2 separate sounds) in each Program
  • MIDI In, Out, Thru
  • Main stereo audio output: 1/4″ unbalanced
  • Output B stereo audio output: 1/4″ unbalanced
  • Dimensions: 12.7 x 35.1 x 3.8 in.

Nice Synth for the Money!

Comments about Dave Smith Instruments Prophet Rev2 Synthesizer:

Nice sounding synth with a good 5 octave keyboard. Software is a little buggy, but only in its first version, and is currently being updated which should iron things out eventually. Hard to find a decent polyphonic analog synth in this price range these days. Even Moog still primarily focuses on monophonic keyboards. Not very practical thee days considering that polyphonic synths can do monophonic as well.

Complex Analog Synth in a Deceptively Simple Package

      Comments about Dave Smith Instruments Prophet Rev2 Synthesizer:

      I you want a basic analog polysynth like the Prophet 600, you won't find it here. This is a complex, modern synth that will having you scratching your head and wondering how they created some of these factory bank patches. The answer is in the mod matrix, in conjunction with the effects section, an impressive sequencer, and a feature rich LFO section. I miss the loud "in your face" (and out of tune) immediacy of my old Prophet 600. I hear some of that here, (especially with the "slop" knob) but this polished product is more a child of the twenty first century than a substitute for a 1980's polysynth I sold years ago.
