View Full Description
Keeping the same Prophet vibe, the Prophet 12 module is ready to handle and sound in any setting with a massive 12 voice polyphony, sophisticated architecture and a sleek design. The brand new digital/analog architecture sounds different than any other DSI line of synths.
The new Prophet 12 module has a digital front end followed by an all-analog signal path output. Each voice has five high-res digital oscillators, a digital character effects section, a resonant Curtis low-pass filter, a high-pass filter, a tune-able feedback circuit and a four-tap delay line with feedback per line.
The sonic potential and power of the Prophet 12 module is backed up further by four loopable five-stage generators, four syncable LFOS with slew and phase offset, a sophisticated arpeggiator and a sixteen slot modulation matrix with 26 mod sources and 97 modulation destinations!
Frequency and amplitude modulate the oscillators with incredible accuracy. You can freely assign oscillators in whatever operator and modulator configurations you choose. You can even assign each of the oscillators to modulate LFOs, envelope and filters.
The Streamlined interface of the Prophet 12 makes it quick and easy to control every parameter of the synth. Each synth section can be selected at the press of a button. Easily create modulation assignments using the Assign Mod buttons. Dedicated Low and High Pass Filter potentiometers provide quick and smooth control of the filters.
At home on your desk, rack or on stage, the Prophet 12 module has a rugged steel enclosure. An extensive MIDI implementation covers every available parameter on the synth, you can easily pair the Prophet 12 with your favourite MIDI controller or DAW.
A cutting edge hybrid synth, the Prophet 12 defines what a polyphonic synth is. A combination of form and function, it is sturdy, portable and elegant.
Features / Specifications
- Five DSP-based oscillators per voice (including one sine wave sub oscillator)
- Four classic wave shapes (saw, square, triangle, sine) per oscillator
- Twelve selectable complex shapes per oscillator
- Three noise types per oscillator: white, pink, violet
- Analog VCAs
- Shape modulation
- Oscillator cross modulation: frequency modulation (FM) and amplitude modulation (AM)
- Hard sync on each of the four oscillators
- Five high-quality digital effects. Thicken the signal and add harmonics or completely destroy the signal pre-filter.
- Girth and Air are high and low shelf equalizers with harmonic excitement. Useful for thickening and/or adding air to the signal.
- Hack and Decimate are sample and bit rate reduction algorithms which can add subtle grit or completely destroy the signal. It's harsh yet musical!
- Drive is a soft saturator for adding soft distortion and harmonic content to the signal
- Famed Curtis 2- or 4-pole resonant analog low-pass filter (self oscillates in 4-pole mode) per voice
- 2-pole resonant analog high-pass filter per voice
