Yeah! read your manual and start twisting the knobs!

Should be a lot of presets waiting for you to create!

C'mon don't be lazy!

I've searched far and wide for free P08 patches. By a huge margin, the best ones are the James Terris banks on the DSI web site. Nothing else comes close.

After you've checked out the James Terris patches, follow this link to a GS thread on DSI patches.
Prophet 08, Mopho, Tetra Patches

There's also this thread where people discuss the patches: Discussion on DSI Patches.

I'm pretty sure you can upload any Mopho or Tetra patch to the P08 as long as the patch is saved in sysex format. Naturally, you'll lose the sub osc or extra layers that might be defined in Mopho or Tetra patches.

Also, take a look at the official Prophet forum (prophet08 [dot] org). They have a patch dump section.

Don't worry about the analog snobs. There's nothing wrong with using other people's programs. And if you're so inclined, you can learn a lot by dissecting and tweaking the work of others.

On a related note, I've found the factory presets to be generally pretty good once they've been tweaked. There are lots of places to make adjustments, but modulation is a critical one. They went over the top with the modulation on the factory presets. By reducing the modulation amounts and changing modulation destinations, the presets take on a more musical and useful character.
