Prophet '08 Keyboard Synthesizer


The return of a legend or the beginning of a new era? The Prophet '08 is an eight-voice synthesizer
with a 100% analog signal path. While the Prophet '08's overall sonic character
will be familiar to anyone who knows Dave's work from the '70s and '80s, it is much more
than just a vintage reissue with a few new bells and whistles. Of course, it includes features
we now take for granted, like velocity and aftertouch. Add to that performance features like
an arpeggiator, gated 16 x 4 step sequencer, and the ability to split or stack sounds.
The modulation possibilities are much deeper than anything Sequential ever produced,
making it capable of producing sounds the "classics" simply could not. Dave has always said
that he is only interested in moving forward. The Prophet '08 is the product of evolution, not nostalgia.
