Product# 584789

      The Dave Smith Instruments Prophet '08 PE offers a tabletop "knobby" synth module with all of the features and controls of the Prophet '08 Keyboard (minus the keyboard, of course) in an even more compact enclosure. With real analog oscillators, famed Curtis low-pass filters, and analog VCAs, the Prophet 08 PE Synth is capable of reproducing the familiar sounds of its legendary predecessors. But modern features like a greatly expanded modulation matrix and additional modulation sources-like 3 envelopes and 4 LFOs per voice-take the Prophet '08 PE way beyond the vintage-ear and make this a worthy and unique addition to the Prophet family tree.

      The Prophet '08 Synth Module delivers a gated 16 x 4 step sequencer, arpeggiator, split or stacked key modes with separate stereo outputs per layer, and rack ears for optional rackmounting. The Prophet '08 module can also be used as an expander to increase the polyphony of another Prophet '08-keyboard or module-to 16 voices.

      Legendary vintage sounds in an affordable, all-analog polysynth.

      • Affordable, full-featured polysynth with a 100% analog signal path
      • Classic, real analog sound, including legendary Curtis analog low-pass filters, married to a modern feature set
      • Small footprint, huge sound
      • Tons of knobs for direct, realtime editing and performance

      Enjoy classic sounds using modern electronics. Order the Prophet '08 PE Module today.

      If your looking for whats missing in your mix, this is it... The VA synths are cool but if you are after the tool to bring body and life to your sound, this may be just what your looking for.
