Review of the Prophet Rev2 by Dave Smith – is it the analog poly synth for you?

Dave Smith has been making synths for 40 years, and traditionally has sold them at a relatively high price. With the Rev2, an update to the original Prophet 08 analog poly synth, that has changed.

The 8 and 16 voice keyboard versions of the Rev2 cost just like the newly announced Korg Prologue, but have substantially more modulation options. The 8 voice Rev2 costs as much as the 8 voice Novation Peak, but is multi-timbral.

Has Dave Smith come out with a “value” poly synth?

This clip is a comprehensive review and overview of all the features an options of the new Prophet Rev2.

  1. I know that in split voice mode on the 16 voice rev 2, it allocates 8 voices to each layer. For the total quantity amount of the other parameters in split voice mode, are they divide in half as well per layer? For example, are the 4 LFOs in split layer mode divide into 2 LFOs per layer or do you have 8 LFOs (4 per layer) total in split/stacked mode?

    I’m very interested in the Prophet rev 2 but confused about how the other synth parameters are allocated in split mode in terms of whether doubling or dividing the total available parameters on the synth.
