Perfect DCO synth
A D 17.07.2021
There's not much that can be said that hasn't already. It's a great synth!
For me, VCO's are just too unstable for what I do and so the Rev2 is a perfect DCO synth for sitting in a clean, modern, in-tune mix. Plays very well with VST's! Heaps of modulation options make this a sound designers dream.
The build quality is superb, and even the pcb-mount knobs have a satifying resistance to them. Makes a great midi controller too, with its superb fatar keybed and masses of assignability.
No problems with voice limits so far as I use it in the studio, though live players that use the dual layer feature or play complex chords with long releases may want to look at the 16 due to potential voice stealing.


Sounds great, feels great, looks great, is great.

I've nothing bad to say about it. Okay, people say the filters aren't as musical as many other synths, and sure... but if you want a Moog or Juno, get yourself a Moog or Juno.

If you like sound design this is for you. If you like a smooth, beautiful sounding poly for a good price, this is for you. I've got the 8 voice and have never felt limited by that, but I'm all studio and make house/broken beat/some technoes and am not a live player. Works perfectly for me.

Anyway, you should buy this. It's the boss in my studio. I use it for pads, leads, and when I'm not using it I just kind of stare at it lovingly.


cool poly

So the REV2 came out and was lusting it a lot. Anyway i was an owner of a pro8 and the revision 2 with the better seq, pw in all waves and ofcourse the great fx, just made me sell the old one and buy the new in an instant. The box arrived in typical thomann quality packing and everything was nice, until i took it out and tested the synths' build quality first of all which unfortunately didnt follow the price tag. Most of the encoders feel wobbly, it doesnt affect the synth functionality but compared to my dominion 1 knobs which they feel like they are forged onto the chassis somehow made me fall into comparing them. I mailed immediately DSI fearing that my instrument might be faulty along with a video showing the wobble and the chassis bend in the middle and they responded that all REVS2 are like that and i should not worry and have fun with it. Im deffo gonna have fun with it and not thinking to resell it (at least now), however the build quality is a bit of a let down even compared to its predecessor.


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.
