for it to come in a rack, they would have to sacrifice quite a lot of the hands on front panel control...

also SCI/DSI stuff always sounds sharper, more focused than moog gear... if that makes any sense...

WOW. I thought those keyboards were moving towards extinction.
I read there was a small chip that was responsible for that "SCI P5" sound that couldn't be reproduced anymore. HUH. Looks interesting. can't wait to try.

There's a ton of audio examples online. It'll be alot easier to hear the differences with your own ears than to have people try and describe them for you.

For more info about the Prophet 08 check out the thread that's already been started;

If you look at the photo's on Dave Smith's site, there's a polychain MIDI out on the back. I think that's a good sign that there might be a rack version released.......

that could be for connecting it to a poly-evolver for more voices though.

Much more often than not, a rack version will follow, later.

Yeah it could, but how many people out there would really want multiple full-sized P8's in their rig? The polychain MIDI out is there for extra voices, which is why I'm betting "dollars to doughnuts" that we'll see a rack version follow in the not-too-distant future.

i cant imagine it not working w/ the poly evolver though...im sure those evil geniuses at DSI have a whole workstation concept cooked up....P8/PolyEvolver/BoomChick that would be a pretty nasty setup.
