Dave Smith Announces Prophet 8 Uber-Synth

Prophet 8

Here’s something worth talking about – Dave Smith, one of the pioneers of synths, has announced his latest project – an 8-voice update on the Sequential Circuits Prophet V.

Here’s what has been announced:

The rumors are true. (Well, most of ’em, anyway.) Dave has emerged from his underground lair (the Dave Cave?) with a fresh take on a classic, the all new Prophet ’08. It is an eight-voice synthesizer with a 100% analog audio signal path. And it will be shipping very soon. More details will be available here on the Web site in a few days. Following hot on its heels will be the Prophet ’08 Special Edition, each of which will be hand-signed by Dave and which will feature lighted wheels (RED!) and exotic leopardwood end panels. And for those of you who are wondering what happened to BoomChik, stay calm. Do not panic. Development is progressing nicely. Stay tuned!

  1. Way to go Dave !
    I have only had the PEK for a few months and am astounded by it each time I practice.
    Looks like Anu K. will have to write a new “Definitive Guide” ??

  2. Can’t wait to get the specs on this!

    I’ve been interested in Dave Smith’s polyphonic evolvover since it came out, but limited number of voices seemed like a huge limitation to me. 8 voices of new, reliable analog should be awesome.
