This short video, via LA industrial band 3Teeth, offers an unofficial teaser of what Dave Smith Instruments is bringing to the 2016 NAMM Show, scheduled for next week in Anaheim, CA.
3Teeth notes, “That time Dave Smith came to our dressing room after the show and personally invited us to his shop to try out a new synth he’s unveiling soon.”

I vote for an Oberheim collaboration, a classic reborn. Poly, baby.
Regardless of what Dave Smith is trying to drain from our retirement accounts this year….
3Teeth is an excellent old school style industrial band. On tour with Tool now, I believe. Synths, samples, and electronic distorted vocals. Like Skinny Puppy meets Cubanate maybe, with some Pig guitars thrown in.
I am surprised I never heard of them (especially because it looks like I have friends that have remixed them) – listening and they aren’t all that bad considering the fact that post 2000 or so industrial music kind of devolved to crap that tended to be some sort of W: or suicide commando clone unless you went subgenre like powernoize, synthpop, etc. – that being said – I am not hearing a ton of real analog-y usage… and wondering why DS would show off to them….
I’m going to guess knobby, all analog mono synth because what other niche has this man not already filled?
is it the Linn Drumsampler?
It’s a pro 1
No, a Pro One M. (M for memory)

Bwahahaha! Who da f*ck are they? Hey, Dave, go to Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross instead!
What a joke, Trent Reznor hasn’t made anything industrial in years. His music sounds like a mix of prog and psychedelic with some electronic disco laid underneath. Have you been to a NIN show lately? I like what he does, but it’s a far cry from industrial these days. The LA scene is bringing it back big time with bands like Youth Code bringing the music to a new generation. Skinny Puppy, FLA and Haujobb kept it real over the years, while exploring new sonic territory and pushing the boundaries.
Poly Pro 2?
Prophet 7 already?! Wow Dave!!
With the Mopho being discontinued, i have a feeling they are replacing it with another short scale however more knobby replacement. Kind of a Sub 37/Phatty to the Little Phatty.
I was at 3Teeth’s first show in LA. Aside from the guitar, everything was playback, including the vocals. I hope and have heard they don’t do that anymore, but I stopped being a fan after that night.
I don’t think it will be a pro one reissue, but I do think it will be a monosynth based upon a p6 with enough of a twist to convince you to empty your bank account.
I said it last year and I will say it again he’s got a new range of pasta sauces out, his moved on from synths.
Are you referring to the Marinara 12 and the Alfredo 6?
A Sequential Prophet 1 mono synth.
I guess a New Poly Evolver-type of synth. That’s what I think it is. It’s a logical next step for DSI, considering almost cult following that the original Poly Evolver Keyboard (PEK) obtained since it was discontinued. Dave Smith aims for the higher-end pro market, and he obviously knows what he’s doing.
I’d LOVE for them to go hard original.
Whatever it is I will be getting fingerprints on it this Thursday. NAMM, here I come!
Something that replaces evolver?Something affordable? Something Digital?
3-octave monophonic Prophet 12 keyboard seems likely to me, given past history
Prophet 4. Full analog to extend the 6 and under $1000 in a module 19″ rack mount.
Dave Smith’s stuff is very overpriced considering it’s SMT, so there’s no reason his Prophet line should be so pricey, as Korg has proven with the excellent VCO Minilogue analog poly for $499.
The best synths Ive ever used have been DSI synths, you pay for quality and well designed products.
Try the PRO2 for a few weeks and tell me its not amazing with its state variable filter.
more digital/sampling oriented drummachine with some of the new pro2 filters.
You think DSI – SEQUENTIAL is expensive. .check out the Moog system 55 modular.
Pro One revision and if it isn’t that then it’s something totally new and mind blowing.
