Prophet Rev2

The Prophet Rev2 is Dave Smith’s reimagining of his Prophet ’08 poly synth, a present-day classic that has shown up on endless recordings and stages since its making a big appearance in 2007. As Dave puts it, “The Prophet Rev2 is the realization of Sequential’s exertion to improve and progress everything they seem about the original plan, all at a more available price.” The Prophet Rev2 holds all of the key highlights of the Prophet ’08 and extends on them. It has twice the polyphony, twice the mod framework, waveshape balance on all waveforms, advanced effects per layer in stacked or part voice mode, a polyphonic step sequencer per layer, and more.

The result may be a genuine analogue powerhouse. Best of all, you’ll be able to download any of the numerous existing libraries of Prophet ’08 sounds and they will not as they were sound indistinguishable, but can be improved with the unused highlights. With 16 voices to play with, you have got the freedom to apportion them as you would like. Play two-fisted chords, stack two 8-voice sounds for gigantic, complex surfaces, or split the console into two totally partitioned 8-voice instruments. An 8-voice adaptation is additionally accessible, which can afterwards be extended to 16-voices with the Expander Unit in case craved.

The Prophet Rev2 gets its striking, punchy sound from its 2/4 post, low-pass, thunderous Curtis channels per voice. These are the same channels utilized not as they were within the Prophet ’08 but in numerous classic instruments of the ’70s and ’80s. A partitioned Sound Mod control includes extra consonant complexity and development. An effective unused highlight one of a kind to the Prophet Rev2 is the waveshape tweak. You’ll be able presently to change the “pulse width” of any of the four waveforms (sawtooth, saw+tri, triangle, square). Using the Shape Mod control, you’ll physically dial in a craved waveshape width or utilize an LFO or other mod source for persistently moving timbre. Even single-oscillator sounds take on modern profundity and measurement. The tonal conceivable outcomes are tremendous.
