Any synth with the 'Prophet' name has a lot to live up to given its ancestry. Not many designers could hope to recapture the sound or feel of a synthesiser like the Prophet 5 but if you were going to put money on one man, it would be Dave Smith. Given that he was responsible for the design of all of the previous Prophet synthesisers and co-founder of the legendary "Sequential Circuits" he'd be a pretty safe bet. It should come as no surprise then, that the Prophet '08 sets new standards for poly-synths in the modern world. It has a sound quality to rival all of the 'classic' synths you care to mention but with none of the disadvantages. It's affordable (a trend that goes all the way back to Sequential Circuits' days) compared to the other fully-analogue poly-synths around right now and it's, well, it's just a joy to behold really. We could go on but why don't you check out some of the videos or get in touch with us for more information or a demonstration? Trust us, you won't need any more convincing after that!
