Dave Smith Instruments announce the REV2 at NAMM 2017. This 16-Voice Analog Poly Synth has been designed to be a successor to their popular Prophet '08 poly synth. Much like its antecedent the REV2 features two DCO'S per voice and Curtis again filters at the core of its sound engine. Boasting a number of significant enhancements since the Prophet '08 Poly Synth.

Talking about the REV2 Dave Smith stated:

"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 REV 2 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 immediate difference between the old REV and the REV 2 is polyphony. The Rev2 features 16 voices as its standard configuration- excatly twice the polyphony of the Prophet '08. (Though an 8-voice option is also available.) Since the synth features bi-timbral operation, two completely independent sounds can be stacked or split- layered together or assigned to two different zones on the keyboard.

A new polyphonic sequencer allows up to 64 steps and up to 6 notes per step. A different sequence can be created for each layer when working in stacked or split voice mode. An independent gated sequencer functions as a modulation source and enables the user to create up to 4 different 16 step sequences for complex modulation.
