About the Prophet Rev2:
Dave Smith Instruments new REV2 16-voice analog synthesizer designed to be a successor to the Prophet ’08. Like its predecessor, the REV2 features two DCOs per voice and Curtis filters at the heart of its sound engine, but boasts a number of significant enhancements designed to make it more powerful. As Dave Smith puts it, 'The Prophet ’08 has been a real road warrior for 10 years now and people still love it. But we felt it was time to update it with new technology and new features and, at the same time, lower its cost.' Smith continued: 'The REV2 is essentially the result of our effort to enhance and improve everything we could about the original Prophet ’08 and, in many cases, double its power.' The most obvious difference between the REV2 and its predecessor is polyphony."
