A compact, computer-less performance setup that can create a wide variety of new (and old) sounds. The Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2 is the heart of the setup. In addition to its great sound engine, it provides the master MIDI clock to the H9 and sends tempo-synced LFOs, step sequences and more to the MicroBrute via one or more of its four assignable CV outputs.
The MicroBrute is in the cat bird seat here, but also shown is how that position can also be nicely filled by other analog, CV controllable synths. We also take a Moog Voyager for a spin.

Here is an introduction to an exploration of the Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2 Sequencer.

I don’t wanted to show wich one is better – but how good they play together 😉
this was a special wish from someone of the german forum for better comparing the two…
Background video description:
Here is the first in a series of videos which demonstrate the sound and functionality of the Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2 synthesizer.
In this first video, I demonstrate how to get analog-sounding sounds out of the digital oscillators.

Stack explores using the Pro 2s sequencer. Here’s what he hast to say about it:
The Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2 is the most useful synth I’ve ever played. I got to borrow one for a short while and it quickly became the central control and performance hub of my analog and digital gear. In addition to its great internal sounds, with four assignable CV Outputs (and four inputs!), it (much like the Moog Multi-Pedal) is able to lend new functionality to your older existing gear.
For example, a Moog Voyager sounds great but it has (for all practical purposes) no MIDI clock synced features. Pair it with a Pro 2 though and you can control things like the Voyager’s filter cutoff, volume, pan, wave shape and more with the Pro 2’s clock-synced LFOs, step sequencer tracks, envelopes and a variety of other elements.
I had a lot of fun connecting to multiple synths, starting the sequencer, and tweaking knobs. This video does not go into minute detail on showing how I did all this. It is meant as a quick look at some amazing possibilities. Think of it more as an “inspirational” than a “tutorial”. I wish I had more time to explore applications of the the Pro 2 while I had it.

Just finished spending some short quality time with the Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2. With USB/MIDI and assignable CV Ins and Outs that can be sent to or from just about anything in its architecture, It’s like a great synth that fits into any electronic music workflow.
Analog Solutions Leipzig-s and Dave Smith Instruments Mono Evolver battle it out in this mini jam. Love these synths!
Another work-in-progress demo of the Dave Smith Instruments Mono Evolver Keyboard, the Moog Sub 37 Tribute Edition synth, and the Korg Wavedrum Global Edition. Recorded into Ableton Live 9 Suite with additional Piano track played using the Ableton Push controller.
