The Prophet 12 is the next step for Dave Smith's revered line of Prophet synthesizers. Each of the Prophet's twelve voices is composed of a brand new hybrid digital/analog architecture that sounds different than any other DSI synth, yet retains the true Prophet vibe. With a humongous twelve voice polyphony, streamlined design, and sophisticated architecture, the Prophet 12 is ready to handle any sound you can dream up!
The Prophet sings :
The 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 tune-able 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 sixteen slot modulation matrix with 26 mod sources and 97 modulation destinations. The 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 :
The Prophet'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.
The Prophet'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 a myriad of controls for creation and performance of its innovative sounds.
> tech specs Oscillators :
Five DSP-based oscillators per voice (including one sine wave sub
Four classic wave shapes (saw, square, triangle, sine) per oscillator
Twelve selectable complex shapes per oscillator
Three noise types per oscillator: white, pink, violet
Oscillator cross modulation: frequency modulation (FM) and amplitude
Hard sync on each of the four oscillators
Character Effects :
Five high-quality digital effects. Thicken the signal and add harmonics
or completely destroy the signal pre-filter.
Girth and Air are high and low shelf equalizers with harmonic
excitement. Useful for thickening and/or adding air to the signal.
Hack and Decimate are sample and bit rate reduction algorithms which
can add subtle grit or completely destroy the signal. It's harsh yet
Drive is a soft saturator for adding soft distortion and harmonic
content to the signal
Famed Curtis 2- or 4-pole resonant analog low-pass filter (self
oscillates in 4-pole mode) per voice
2-pole resonant analog high-pass filter per voice
Feedback and Delay :
Four-tap syncable multi delay with feedback and amount per delay per
Four Delay + ADSR envelopes (LPF, VCA , and two Auxiliary envelopes)
Auxiliary envelopes 3 and 4 freely assignable to multiple modulation
All envelopes can repeat/loop
Four syncable LFO's with phase offset and slew per LFO
16 x 2 modulation matrix with 26 mod sources and 97 mod destinations
Modulation assignment buttons enable quick and easy modulation routing
Programmable Distortion :
Independent programmable stereo analog distortion per layer.
More than 50 knobs and 50 buttons enable deep and comprehensive editing
with little to no menu diving.
Backlit pitch and mod wheels are easily visible in low light situations
and have a smooth yet precise feel and response.
Independently adjustable upper and lower pitch wheel range.
Two assignable position- and pressure-sensitive latchable touch sliders
for enhanced interactivity and control.
Full-sized, 5-Octave, semi-weighted keyboard with velocity and channel
396 user and 396 factory programs
Direct program access using numeric keypad and dedicated User, Factory,
and Bank buttons
Playlist mode for generating easily accessible setlists of your
favorite programs. Create four play lists with up to forty programs
