Those are Studio Electronic knobs - I think it's the ones they use on there modular gear. When they refurbished them for me (I purchased them used) they changed out the knobs at my request at there shop. They also changed out the really small knobs at the bottom with the ones with the white dots on top. Maybe they just painted in the dots on those.

Any of you guys by any luck have the Prophet Rev2 next to a Boomstar?
I would be interested how to they compare not on features but on raw sound.
(of course the prophet is polyphonic, so not talking about chords and stuff )
Thanks!

Depends, but without playing a Rev2 (so you already know this is going to be good ) the Boomstar is more raw. You are talking about DCOs vs VCOs. It's very obvious to me listening to a Novation Bass Station with DCOs and a Boomstar. The Boomstars have more juice. I think they can compliment the Rev2 quite well. The Boomstars have a sub and juicy raw Oscillators. The Rev2 is going to be cleaner sounding. I think between the 2, to put it another way, the Boomstar would sound more vintage and the Rev2 more modern. Great random analysis I know.

Kind of an apples/oranges comparison imho. Monos and polys have pretty different design criteria (in spite of the fact that some like to get multiple units of their favorite phat monosynth and polychain them ). Not sure how informative it would be to compare the oscillators and filters of a Prophet and a Boomstar. Certainly they will sound quite different, and each synth can do things the other cannot. Approved GS answer: get both!

Can you guys and gals make a recommend for two of these?

I make industrial type music and darkwave dance tracks ..


I have a P6, OB6, Rev2, Pulse II, Elektron Analog Keys, AS-1 for analog.

I was think the 4075 and SE80 but the 5089 seems like it might be more useful. Although the Analog Keys does do a pretty good Moog and the Behringer Model D might be a better route, which is why I keep coming to the Arp and SE.

What do you think? Recommendations?

Not a Rev2, but I have a Prophet 08 and a Boomstar 4075, and there's no comparison. The filter is a million times better, as you'd expect, but since you can distort/overdrive the Boomstar at so many different stages (the mixer can go into warm Moogy drive, which goes even further if you plug Osc Out to Ext In, plus filter feedback and overdrive) you can dial in warm, vintage-like tones and extreme distorted noises that the Prophet can't touch. On the other hand, the Prophet's modulation goes much deeper than any pure analog machine can.

I just snagged a brand new 4075 for $799. I guess I’ll just hear for myself.
