cool poly
Vangelis, 02.08.2017
So the REV2 came out and was lusting it a lot. Anyway i was an owner of a pro8 and the revision 2 with the better seq, pw in all waves and ofcourse the great fx, just made me sell the old one and buy the new in an instant. The box arrived in typical thomann quality packing and everything was nice, until i took it out and tested the synths' build quality first of all which unfortunately didnt follow the price tag. Most of the encoders feel wobbly, it doesnt affect the synth functionality but compared to my dominion 1 knobs which they feel like they are forged onto the chassis somehow made me fall into comparing them. I mailed immediately DSI fearing that my instrument might be faulty along with a video showing the wobble and the chassis bend in the middle and they responded that all REVS2 are like that and i should not worry and have fun with it. Im deffo gonna have fun with it and not thinking to resell it (at least now), however the build quality is a bit of a let down even compared to its predecessor.

Sounds great, feels great, looks great, is great.
allandbyallo, 27.11.2020
I've nothing bad to say about it. Okay, people say the filters aren't as musical as many other synths, and sure... but if you want a Moog or Juno, get yourself a Moog or Juno.

If you like sound design this is for you. If you like a smooth, beautiful sounding poly for a good price, this is for you. I've got the 8 voice and have never felt limited by that, but I'm all studio and make house/broken beat/some technoes and am not a live player. Works perfectly for me.

Anyway, you should buy this. It's the boss in my studio. I use it for pads, leads, and when I'm not using it I just kind of stare at it lovingly.

The best purchase of the year
afuhrmann, 10.07.2017
After owning a Prophet 08 for several years, I knew what were the things that in my opinion could be improved. With the Prophet REV 2 they have surpassed those needs and expectations.

The physical build is awesome, every part of it feels way robust and thicker than the previous one. The screen, the keyboard and the knobs are clearly better.

The sound is still wonderful as usual, and now better than ever with the addition of new features: polyphonic sequencer, effects, sub-oscillator, convenient and quick way to assign destinations in the modulation, etc.

I am 100% satisfied.

Amazing!
PsychoAndy, 10.08.2019
This is one of the best synth I've ever had!
It would make no sense to point out all the features it has, but they're all top quality to me: lfos, oscillators, filters, effects, everything!
Easy to program, much more than I expected considering all the possible routings, sounds amazing and is rock solid!
It delivers the best analog sound in my humble opinion, much better than any similar one.
I haven't found a single flaw up to now, it seems to really be my holy grail fo synths!
I don't feel to much the need of the additional 8 voices (macking it a rev2-16), but sure it can make the difference if you need 8 notes polyphony for stacked sounds.
Sure it sounds already incredibly powerfull with single layered sounds!
I'm still considering the 8 voice additional module, just because I love the sounds I can build with this machine, but it's aready the top synth for me, sure there's nothing I love so much in this price range!
