It’s alive! This is an experimental drone/noise patch I was messing with on the Prophet ’08. LFOs modulating LFOs modulating LFOs for some self-perpetuating insanity. Music for asylums. The sun was setting so I just left it run for a while. Please subscribe, and feel free to post below with any questions or comments!

Dave Smith Instruments has announced that its Prophet 12 Module is now shipping.

“We have had many requests from professional musicians for a small, easily portable version of the Prophet 12 keyboard, with all the same features and incredible sound,” says Smith. “The new Prophet 12 module is just that: it has all the power of the Prophet 12 keyboard – in fact, it has the exact same voice board – and it fits into a backpack.”

“People like small these days,” adds Smith. “Many musicians also have more than enough keyboards, or simply don’t use keyboards. The Prophet 12 module offers a sleek design that still gives you easy and incredibly fast and intuitive control over all parameters.”

Lke its keyboard counterpart, the twelve-voice hybrid digital/analog Prophet 12 module not only boasts the greatest number of voices of any instrument from the distinguished designer to date, but each of those voices features four oscillators, capable of generating classic and complex waveforms, a sub-oscillator (Sub Octave), resonant low-pass filter and high-pass filter, and analog VCA.

Additional features include a tuned FEEDBACK path, a four-tap stereo DELAY per voice, expanded ARPEGGIATOR functionality, deep MODULATION capabilities, bi-timbral operation, and much more besides.

The CHARACTER section adds a variety of out of the ordinary wave-shaping and sound-sculpting options, like:

  • Girth (low shelf filtering that boosts low frequencies, with some extra harmonic modification at higher settings);
  • Air (high shelf filtering that boosts high frequencies, with some extra harmonic modification at higher settings);
  • Hack (reduces the bit depth of the mixed output from the oscillators);
  • Decimation (reduces the sample rate of the mixed output from the oscillators); and
  • Drive (emulates tape saturation).

The back panel I/O of the Prophet 12 module matches that of the Prophet 12 keyboard in almost all aspects – apart from featuring an external power supply in the interests of making it as compact and portable as possible. Headphones, Main/A Outputs, B Outputs, MIDI Thru, MIDI Out, MIDI In, Pedal 1, Pedal 2, Sustain, and USB connectivity are all available.

The Prophet 12 module has an MAP of US $2,199 and can be purchased from any authorized Dave Smith Instruments dealer. See the DSI site for more info.

Introducing the Prophet 12 Module, the same great sound engine of the Prophet 12 keyboard with enough portability to fit in a backpack! At twelve voices, the Prophet 12 boasts the greatest polyphony of any instrument designed by Dave Smith. Each voice features four oscillators capable of generating classic and complex waveforms, a sub-oscillator, resonant analog low-pass and high-pass filters, and analog VCAs. The new Character section adds a variety of wave shaping and sound sculpting options, like Drive, Hack, Decimation, Girth, and Air. Additional features include a tuned feedback path, a four-tap stereo delay per voice, expanded arpeggiator functionality, deep modulation capabilities, and bi-timbral operation. The LFOs, delay, and arpeggiator can all be synced, either to the internal clock or an external MIDI clock.

Sweet coverage of the Mopho SE from Dave Smith Instruments

It’s a Bigger Badder Mopho!
Mopho SE is the newest addition to DSI’s revered line of analog subtractive synthesizers. Building upon the same award winning voice architecture of the Mopho and Mopho Keyboard, the Mopho SE boasts huge sound in an ideally sized, portable, and elegantly designed package. Use it to create huge basses, creamy leads, and maniacal sequences.

The Mopho Sings!
The Mopho SE voice is composed of two analog oscillators, two sub octave generators, selectable 2- or 4-pole famed Curtis low-pass filter, three 5-stage envelope generators, four LFOs, a re-latchable arpeggiator, and a 16 x 4 step sequencer. Its voice also comes packed with 20 modulation sources and almost 50 destinations!

FM the filter to create metallic bell-like sounds and use the feedback path to add subtle or destructive harmonic content to your sound. Process external audio through the Mopho’s voice and add some analog warmth to any source. Mopho SE’s 100% analog signal path is powerful, monstrous, and sonically dynamic!
