The Lost Prophet: Dave Smith's Forgotten Flagship

video upload by Jameson Nathan Jones

"The Prophet 12 was one of the first synths that caught my eye when I first got into synthesizers, but then I promptly forgot about it during the analog revival of the 2010s. I recently got my hands on one, and decided to do some digging into why this synth is seldom talked about, despite Dave Smith himself proclaiming it to be his favorite when it was released 10 years ago.
