Great all round poly synth
Iccapod, 02.01.2019
I got this to replace a mopho keyboard and Tetra rig I had been using for a while. I opted for this over the rack as I don't own any full size keyboards so wanted this over the rack version. I will primarily use it for recording but it's actually smaller than I expected it to be so could be carted around to shows quite easily.

Some things that I really like about it.

The Split and stack functions are cool. I like the idea of splitting two sounds across the keyboard like a bass on one side and a lead or pad on the other. Totally opens up the possibility of playing more live, couple this with a set of stereo outputs for each side and it's like having two 4 voice synths in one package. Stacking two sounds also makes for some cool sound design options.

Some things I don't like

Personally I don't think the onboard effects sound great. Especially the reverb, it has this thinny, ringy kind of shrill quality to it. Not my cup of tea. I'll mainly be using external effects anyway. It's by no means unusable and doesn't sound too bad on some of the presets.

Overall it's a great sounding poly, great for pads, leads. The bottom end is not as meaty as I thought it would be but it's sufficient for my needs. The synth has a lovely feel to play and I really like the interface for programming. Knobs are solid and build is really nice. I suppose one small thing is one of the buttons is slightly lopsided and it's noticeable when you switch it on, minor detail really.

The best purchase of the year
afuhrmann, 10.07.2017
After owning a Prophet 08 for several years, I knew what were the things that in my opinion could be improved. With the Prophet REV 2 they have surpassed those needs and expectations.

The physical build is awesome, every part of it feels way robust and thicker than the previous one. The screen, the keyboard and the knobs are clearly better.

The sound is still wonderful as usual, and now better than ever with the addition of new features: polyphonic sequencer, effects, sub-oscillator, convenient and quick way to assign destinations in the modulation, etc.

I am 100% satisfied.
