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!

The DSI Prophet 12 Module is now shipping

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.
