Prophet 12

F5D, 15.08.2014
Dave Smith Instruments brings this hybrid digital / analog polyphonic synth to the market, while many other companies go with fully digital designs. As a result, this is a synthesizer like no other available at the moment, offering warm and organic tones with modular-like patching capabilities built-in. Due to the wide feature list, this synth is like a chameleon and can easily produce tones that can fool you thinking it is a real analog, and with a twist of a few knobs becomes an FM-synth with shiming bells and noises.

In most cases, the Prophet 12 can quite authentically produce sounds of the fully analog Prophet '08, including those many sounds of the 80's. I own both synths, but have no intentions to get rid of the Prophet '08 because there are differences between the oscillators and how the noise behaves, both as a modulation source, and as a mix source. However, the capabilities of Prophet 12 go way beyond of the P'08 due to the included wavetables, tuned feedback, 4 delay lines, distortion, and new easier to use user interface and display. The included real wood finish give it the final touch of quality and looks. What a beautiful instrument! After Waldorf quite producing the hybrid Q+, this is practically the only hybrid polyphonic synth on the market, and does it brilliantly. Considering the sound quality and features, this is easily on par with the also discontinued fully analog Alesis Andromeda and some other legendary synths. You cannot go wrong with this one.

THE synth of 2013.

GustavA, 30.12.2013
The Prophet 12 from DSI is an amazing instrument. To me its not only important for an instrument to sound and feel good, but also to inspire its user to create music and the DSI pro12 does exactly that. With lots and lots of features you can just go on and on creating sounds, songs and beats with this synthesizer. Of course the basic sound of the oscillators and filters is so amazing that if you just want to recreate the Van halen "jump" and jam all night you can do that to. If you are a synthesizer enthusiast you owe it to yourself to try this instrument!
