The Prophet Rev2 from Dave Smith Instruments is a reenvisioning of the Prophet ’08 poly synth that retains and expands upon all of the main features of the original. It has twice the polyphony - making 16 voices, as well as twice the mod matrix. Also included is waveshape modulation on all waveforms and digital effects per layer in split or stacked voice mode including delays (bucket-brigade and standard), reverb, distortion, phase shift, chorus, and ring modulation.
The polyphonic step sequencer allows one to sequence up to 6 notes per step for a length of 64 steps. Different sequences can be used for each layer when working in split or stacked voice mode, aiding in composition or performance.
It includes a five-octave keyboard with semi-weighted keys supporting velocity and channel aftertouch. Those used to pianos and traditional keyboards will feel right at home.
