Well, the Prophet 8 is a beast but the stock patches you might have heard weren't all that. I also wasn't extremely impressed by the patches.
This new one is much better because it has a sub oscillator to add that fatness to the sound and it has 4 oscillators per voice and 12 voices. It can create massive sounds.
It's expensive though. $3,000 is some change. I figure if I buy this in the future, it will be one of those synths I learn in and out and a workhorse for epic leads, pads, basses. I think this thing can cover all your poly needs.
