Derived from 35 years of master synth design knowledge.
Dave Smith Instruments unleashes the Prophet 12 Synthesizer. Using 35 years of experience building synths, Dave Smith has created what he calls his "best synth yet." By combining the finest qualities of the Prophet '08 and Poly Evolver keyboards, adding a ton of new features, and bumping up the voice-count to 12, the Prophet 12 is well worthy of the name. As with all Dave Smith keyboards, the Prophet 12 has a knob-per-function interface that lets you start designing sounds immediately without having to dive through pages of confusing menus.
At twelve voices, the Prophet 12 boasts the greatest polyphony of any instrument designed by Smith. Each voice features four oscillators capable of generating classic and complex waveforms, a sub-oscillator, resonant analog low- and high-pass filters, and analog VCAs. The new Character section adds a variety of wave shaping and sound sculpting options, like Drive, Hack, Decimation, Girth, and Air. Additional features include a tuned feedback path, a four-tap stereo delay per voice, expanded arpeggiator functionality, deep modulation capabilities, and bi-timbral operation. The LFOs, delay, and arpeggiator can all be synced, either to the internal clock or an external MIDI clock. Two programmable position- and pressure-sensitive touch sliders take the performance controls beyond the standard pitch and mod wheels (also included).

Comments about Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 12 Polyphonic Synthesizer:
SOMETHING HAPPENED TO THE MAIN BOARD AS I SAID ON THE PREVIOUS COMMENT, COULD HAD BEEN A VOLTAGE CHANGE THAT HAPPENED A WEEK BEFORE, I DONT KNOW, BUT THEY SENT ME A NEW ONE AT NO COST, ALSO THE BOARD WITH THE WOBBLE POT WAS SENT TO ME FOR REPLACEMENT. IT SURPRISED ME HOW EASSY IS TO FIX THIS SYNTH, YOU JUST DO IT YOUR SELF. IT LIFTS LIKE A CAR HOOD AND STAYS THERE, THEN YOU CAN EASILY REMOVE ANY OF THE BOARDS, AND REPLACE WITH THE NEW ONES. THE FORMULA ONE OF SYNTHS. STELLAR COMPANY. GREAT SYNTH. YOU CAN GET LOST IN A PLETHORA OF SOUNDS. HOPE MY PREVIOUS COMMENT COULD BE ERASED.
