wow! huge range of tibres, some really beautiful pads, 'spacey' tones, haunting, its sounds very atmospheric, could do some great 'Eraserhead' type soundtrack stuff on this!!! Has nice 'bell' tones too, sounds very versitile. Will be mine.
damn that things sounds amazing. so many different styles can be covered. sounds very versatile, even a lil bit of freak out type at the end. i dont need a synth like this since im covered but i would be after it if i was in the market. good shit
Yeah, I forgot to mention, I have two White Slim Phattys on top of that!!!
Very Cool !
so....You have twin-albino LPhatties
imho. the Moog LPhattty is a classic synth, love everything about this synth. I would love it if Moog makes a modern version of their Memory Moog with 6, or maybe 8 voices of polyphony. Now...That would be a killer analog synth. (just dreaming).
I quite like this.. a lot more than the 8. It seems more versatile. I really enjoy some of the older warbly sounds on there. I wonder how it does at brass stabs. I know that is a commonish sound but I have a hard time finding good ones on newer gear.
I'm really considering selling my Jupiter 6 to get this. The P12 sounds a lot closer to my taste. Perhaps I should sell my Microwave I as well, this seems to have those bases pretty much covered though it sounds like the wavetable system is quite different. Between those two I'd pretty much be there in terms of funds...
Hmmm, I'll wait until I get a hands-on experience. Some of those sounds really grabbed me. From about 16:00 on was just amazing.
Sounds good here, this is the sound I like. Here, I'll do a favor for the Gearslutz ITB guys.
It's been several months since we last had the Prophet 12 at our studio, and now, the Dave Smith Instruments team has given us a second run to create more factory bank patches. Much has changed, and all for the better, with the Prophet 12.
Firstly, it sounds much larger than before and there are more wavetables. Secondly, the stereo field is incredible. We were able to use very subtle panning modulations to create a strong and wide sense of space with the patches we've programmed. Also, the user interface has been incredibly streamlined providing us with a very speedy workflow while assigning very complex modulations. Lastly, the new arpeggiator is unbelievable.
Our many thanks go to everyone at DSI. It's an honor to be making patches for the next Prophet synth.
This demo was recorded via a Neve Portico Preamp into a Digidesign 192 Pro Tools HD interface. We recorded this synth no differently than we record all of our other synths. Also, there is no MIDI on this demo. Everything was played by hand and used the onboard controls and modulators present on the Prophet 12. And there are absolutely zero Emerson, Lake, and Palmer impressions nor any keyboard equivalents of the "Stairway to Heaven" solo. Nor will there ever be on this channel.
Awesome, didn't even know this was out - too busy making music to go on a gearlust session, but well, maybe its that time again.
Really cool, and am curious to the types of sounds you can get out of this thing. Whats really nifty is the ability to assign a delay to EACH individual voice.
Think this will really compliment the Jupiter 6 and OB8 (among our other toys) - since my production partner and I got rid of the Pro 5 due to it starting to get way too wonky, not worth the repair.
I really really don't understand some of the comments saying its 'digital and harsh'. Really? It sounds smoother than the JP6, so I dono what you guys are listening on. But I'm not comparing them side by side, or as a 'replacement for anything' really wanting a big voice with great sound, and a ton of on-board control that compliments the other stuff we have to work with.
Its cool that smaller designers like Dave are listening to the market (unlike the larger guys like Roland).
To me, Roland is a keyboard manufacture, not an instrument designer.
You know the 'band in a box' type thing where you see the 'musical director' of a cruise ship play sh*t renditions of Britney Spears songs with a "Calypso" or "Bossanova" beat backing it.
This IS going to be on the short list of new stuff to add to the mix this year..
Plenty of excitement over here.
