Product Description

Featuring a full bold sound, the Prophet Rev2 is a modern classic reinvented. The Prophet Rev2 features 16-voice polyphony, waveshape modulation, effects per layer, extended Mod Matrix, poly step sequencing, per knob programmability and excellent playability.

The Prophet Rev2 is Dave Smith’s reimagining of his Prophet ’08 poly synth — a modern classic that has appeared on countless recordings and stages since its debut in 2007. As Dave puts it, “The Prophet Rev2 is the realization of our effort to enhance and improve everything we could about the original design — all at a more accessible price.”

The Prophet Rev2 retains all of the key features of the Prophet ’08 and expands on them. It has twice the polyphony, twice the mod matrix, waveshape modulation on all waveforms, digital effects per layer in stacked or split voice mode, a polyphonic step sequencer per layer, and more. The result is a true analog powerhouse.

Best of all, you can download any of the many existing libraries of Prophet ’08 sounds and they will not only sound identical, but can be enhanced with the new features.

16-Voice Polyphony
With 16 voices to play with, you have the freedom to allocate them as you wish. Play two-fisted chords, stack two 8-voice sounds for massive, complex textures, or split the keyboard into two completely separate 8-voice instruments.

Bold Sound
The Prophet Rev2 gets its bold, punchy sound from its 2/4 pole, low-pass, resonant Curtis filters per voice. These are the same filters used not only in the Prophet ’08, but in many classic instruments of the 70’s and 80’s. A separate Audio Mod control adds additional harmonic complexity and movement.

Waveshape Modulation
A powerful new feature unique to the Prophet Rev2 is waveshape modulation. You can now vary the “pulse width” of any of the four waveforms (sawtooth, saw+tri, triangle, square). Using the Shape Mod control, you can manually dial in a desired waveshape width or use an LFO or other mod source for continuously shifting timbre. Even single-oscillator sounds take on new depth and dimension. The tonal possibilities are vast.

Effects Per Layer
The effects section provides reverb, delays (standard and BBD), chorus, phase shifter, ring modulation, and distortion. In stacked or split voice mode, you can apply a different effect to each layer. Effects parameters can be modulated through the Mod Matrix.

Extended Mod Matrix
Also present from its predecessor is an easy-to-assign Mod Matrix, now twice as big, with 8 individual slots and many more sources/destinations. It’s a veritable sound designer’s playground.

Poly Step Sequencing
The polyphonic step sequencer allows up to 64 steps and up to 6 notes per step. You can create a different sequence for each layer when you are working in stacked or split voice mode, making it a powerful tool for composition or performance. The sequencer also functions as a modulation source in gated mode, allowing you to create up to 4 different 16-step sequences for complex modulation. Sequences allow ties and rests, and can sync to an external MIDI clock. The arpeggiator features note repeats, re-latching, and can be synced to external MIDI clock, as well.

Per-Knob Programmability
The knob-per-function front panel offers instant access to Prophet Rev2 functions. Included are 512 permanent factory programs and 512 rewritable user programs.

Eminently Playable
All of this polyphonic power is packed into a five-octave, premium-quality, semi-weighted keyboard with velocity and channel aftertouch. Other road-worthy features include an integrated power supply, USB support, and a crisp OLED display, making the Prophet Rev2 an ideal instrument for gigging or recording, and an analog powerhouse like no other.

What is your opinion of this product?
This is one of the best synths I’ve heard. I’m not old enough to remember, or be able to compare it to, the sounds of earlier Prophets. But for a modern take on a legend this thing is a beast. Coupled with my OB-6 the sonic quality is nearly unmatchable from any other modern synths. This thing evokes creativity constantly. Bi-timbrality with 16 voices is perfect, not too much, not too little, just right. Amazing sequencer as well. The keybed feels very nice too. Only thing is I wish the encoders were arranged differently near the screen, I’m often blocking my own view or having to position my hand a certain way to see the relatively tiny, yet crystal clear screen. Aside from that this synth can’t be recommended enough. I chose it over the Peak and I’m glad I did, even though I’ll probably get the Peak one day, I think they’d go very well together.

Useful presets that are easy to tweak. 16 voices give you unlimited possibilities. What you get for the price is a great deal! The quality and feel of the keys is also great!

Incredible Synth!!
What is your opinion of this product?
This board has brought me back to the early to mid 80's. The ability to add in effects is a nice touch to the analog sound, and the ability to adjust on the fly is simply fun. Some of the presets are simply ear candy, but I've already created patches that I intend to immediately. There are some critics who may state that the sound is harsh--not up to the warmth of Prophet 6, or the bass is not as heavy as a Moog. Well, this is not a Prophet 6, and not a Moog. It's a Prophet Rev2, and can cover much of the analog ground that I need (plus more than I will ever use.) I'd highly recommend for anyone wanting to get into the polyphonic analog world, or to anyone that likes to modify sounds when playing live. The key bed is very responsive, and feels solid. The same applies to the knobs and buttons. Very glad I purchased this board.

I absolutely fell in love with this synth within the first five minutes of playing!
What is your opinion of this product?
For the price this is hands down the best analog synth available. The sounds are rich, clean, and right out of the box there are enough presets to keep you busy for countless hrs. I highly recommend this keyboard to anyone who is looking for amazing synth action keys along with unmatched quality sound for the price. The build is also very solid and ready for the studio but absolutely road worthy as well.

What I've always wanted...
What is your opinion of this product?
I'm so glad I went ahead and spent the money on a keyboard I can use at home or on a gig! Being old school,I love the knobs and controls to create my sound on the fly but,I'm also impressed with the new polyphony features! I had to get the 16 voice so I can play it more like a full keyboard! Great decision! The new USB features are also great,along with the plugin editor and vst/au plugin features! Sturdy keybed too! Definitely a keeper!!
