Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 12 is the flagship in Dave Smith's revered line of Prophet synthesizers. Each of the Prophet's twelve voices is composed of a hybrid digital/analog architecture that sounds different from any other DSI synth, yet retains the true Prophet vibe. With a humongous twelve-voice polyphony, streamlined design and sophisticated architecture, Prophet 12 is ready to handle any sound you can dream up!
The Prophet sings
Prophet 12's brand new hybrid voice has a digital front end followed by an all analog signal path output. Each voice has five high resolution digital oscillators, a digital character effects section, a resonant Curtis low pass filter, a high pass filter, a tuneable feedback circuit, a four-tap delay line with feedback per line, four loopable five-stage envelope generators, four syncable LFOs with slew and phase offset, a sophisticated arpeggiator and a 16-slot modulation matrix with 26 mod sources and 97 destinations. Prophet 12 is packed with a plethora of sonic potential and power!
The digital oscillators can be frequency and amplitude modulated by each other with incredible accuracy. They can be freely assigned in whatever operator and modulator configurations you would choose. You can even assign each of the oscillators to modulate LFOs, envelopes, and filters.
The Prophet controls
Prophet 12's sleek and instinctive interface invites full control of the synth. Every parameter is fully programmable and editable from the front panel. The controls are laid out in a coherent and logical fashion allowing quick and precise access in the studio and on stage.
Prophet 12's full-sized, five-octave, semi-weighted keyboard with velocity and channel aftertouch is rugged without sacrificing great feel and playability. Two backlit, smooth and precise pitch and mod wheels are accompanied by two location and pressure sensitive touch sliders. The Prophet offers myriad controls for creation and performance of its innovative sounds.
A prophecy for the future
Prophet 12 is the most cutting edge hybrid synthesizer on the market and defines what a modern polyphonic synthesizer is. Designed and manufactured in San Francisco, Prophet 12 has a glorious combination of form and function in a sturdy, yet refined and elegant build.
Dave has been a pioneer in the field for 35 years. After creating such greats as the Prophet-5, '08 and VS, this is his favorite Prophet yet!
