NAMM 2013: Synth legend Dave Smith has unveiled his new Prophet 12 Analogue Synthesizer.

It was built from the ground up, and features 12 voices of polyphony, with each voice featuring four oscillators, a sub-oscillator, resonant analogue low- and high-pass filters and analogue VCAs.

The Character section offers wave-shaping and sound-sculpting options, including Drive, Hack, Decimation, Girth and Air.

The Prophet 12 features a tuned feedback path, a four-tap stereo delay per voice, expanded arpeggiator functionality, deep modulation capabilities and bi-timbral operation.

On top of this there are two programmable position- and pressure-sensitive touch sliders.

Talking about the synth, Dave Smith said, "It doesn't sound like anything else and I'm very excited for people to hear it."
