Close encounter with Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 12

July 10, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

A second Prophet 12 demo from INHALT, details below:

For this next installment of demonstrations, I’ve recorded the more atmospheric, etherial, vocal, and ambient patches from the Prophet 12. What’s wonderful about this synth is the fact that envelope times have been designed to give a wide range of times. This means anything from the most percussive sounds to absurdly long release times are possible. As such, making evolving tonal beds is a breeze and they are sure to find a home in any sound designers tool box when working for film, television, and experimental sound.

Just like the previous demonstration, no sequencing nor external effects have been used. Everything you hear was recorded through a Neve Portico Pre Amp into a Digidesign 192 HD io and assembled in Pro Tools.

MrSynthmania treats us with another exploration of the Prophet 12:

Some nice presets dedicated to all people who want to hear them. All sounds played live and are recorded directly without any equalization, other effects or something else…this is the raw DSI Prophet 12 sound. It´s a mix around to define what a modern synthesizer is. Hope you enjoy it.
Sorry for playing some wrong keys :-)

A little instrumental track made with Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 12. All sounds, except the HiHats, are coming from this Synthesizer and recorded directly to Cubase.
“Hope you like it and you can check the very good quality of its sound.
As soon as possible I will make a video showing some of the best presets.”, Mr.Synthmania

Prophet 12 Features Overview- Dave Smith Instruments

April 14, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Full specifications available at www.davesmithinstruments.com
Introducing the Prophet 12! 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. Two programmable position- and pressure-sensitive touch sliders take the performance controls beyond the standard pitch and mod wheels.

Not sure the music is really up to my taste, but they are clearly having a blast LOL

A collection of short jams from the Dave Smith Instruments booth at the 2013 NAMM convention featuring Peter Dyer on Prophet 12 & Mopho x4, Carson Day on Tempest, & Zach Rudulph on bass. Camera mic only.

Background video description:

A synthy cover of the M83 x Big Black Delta remix of Daft Punk’s “Fall”….using just the Prophet 12 splits and Tempest (in playlist mode). More music at http://peterdyer.net/

Once again, the creative and talented Carson Day jammed on this w/ me at Namm ’13, tweaking the Tempest live, but since no video emerged of it, I wanted to share the sounds, as it was an absolute blast to play, and I’ve got to hand it back for now. I’ll try to abstain from anymore Tron OST or covers of remixes for a while. :)

Checking out Dave Smith Instruments’ Prophet 12 synth

WNAMM13: Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 12 – Video 12 voices, four oscillatore per voice – massive.

Dave Smith Instruments introduced a new polyphonic synthesizer, the Prophet 12, at the 2013 NAMM Show. “After 35 years of creating synths, this is simply my best synth yet,” said Smith. “We sort of started from scratch on this one rather than spinning off another product from our previous designs.”

At twelve voices, the Prophet 12 boasts the greatest polyphony of any instrument designed by Smith. Each voice features four oscillators capable of generating classic and complex waveforms, a sub-oscillator, resonant analog low- 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. Two programmable position- and pressure-sensitive touch sliders take the performance controls beyond the standard pitch and mod wheels (also included).

“We’re already blown away by the sonic breadth of this synthesizer’s new voice architecture,” Smith continued. “It doesn’t sound like anything else and I’m very excited for people to hear it.”

The Prophet 12 is expected to be available Q2 of 2013 and is projected to cost $2999
