New Music Gear Monday: Dave Smith Prophet 12

Although I neglected to mention it in my NAMM overview, the Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 12 was one of the most talked about instruments at the show. Dave was the designer of the original Prophet V synthesizer, which was the very first truly polyphonic synth. That doesn't seem like such a big deal today, but believe me, back in the 80's it was an earth shattering development.

Dave really put everything into the Prophet 12, from 5 oscillators per voice (4 plus a sub oscillator), arpeggiator, analog filters (which is why it sounds so analog), and a load more that you'll see in the video. If you're into keyboards, this is one well worth checking out. It doesn't sound to try like any other instrument; it has it's own voice.
