Prophet's next generation

Aaron Sim, 06.08.2018
Build quality is solid metal and knobs are firm. Love that every knob controls a parameter and it is super easy to map mod/lfo to a destination.
DSI is also constantly listening to feedback from users and enable features where possible. There are a few bugs in the software but nothing serious that will affect your enjoyment with this baby as the support team is fixing them all the time.
Price point is unbelievable too, who could have known that you could own a Prophet at such a price. Sure the Rev2 uses DCOs and not VCOs like the P6, this becomes negligible when you use external effects e.g. pedal or software plugin to mix layers together.
High recommend this if you are looking to expand your arsenal with a Prophet!

A Prophet today.

chris196, 14.02.2018
Presentation - Originally interested in the Mopho X4, I finally chose the Prophet Rev2-8 rack for my home studio. Subsequently, I went from 8 to 16 polyphony channels through the acquisition of the expansion card.

More - I really appreciate the Osc Slop which simulates the instability of the oscillators and the Pan Spread which widens the sound in stereo. The modulation matrix is ??easy to use and the sound search possibilities are extended. The LPF filter makes it possible to obtain rather round and warm sonorities, with this small side "juicy" that I look sometimes when I create sounds of bass electro. I enjoy stacking two stacks resulting in a huge sound.
The sequencer is fun and easy to use. We can create small sequences on the fly and play on it.

The least - The display is legible but a little too small. The Unison function is not usable in polyphony but by stacking and detuning stacks A and B, very good results can be obtained. There is no separate volume setting for each oscillator. I do not really like the side plastoc knobs, identical to those of the Pro 2 (which I also).

Conclusion - The Rev2 is a beast of programming just waiting to be explored. You have to spend a lot of time on it to get all the quintessence.
A very good polyphonic analog synth nice to use and that brings me a lot of satisfaction.
