DSI is once again building the legend of tomorrow
IngoTB303, 06.09.2013
Hello Thomann fans and synthesizer lovers!

It is now almost 2 months since I bought the new Prophet-12. My conclusion so far: absolutely satisfied!
It is my first DSI hardware synthesizer and it fulfills my requirements absolutely. And if you are thinking about a company with about 10 employees, great performance!

The long wait was worth it. The hour-long tutorial and demo videos on youtube, the pre-reading of the PDF manual.

Appearance / Processing:

- robust, high quality,
- wooden cladding,
- high quality Potis,
- easy-to-read OLED display
- everything is beautifully packaged and taped, transport safe

The synth has good weight, but normal with all the analog circuits and the wood.

Synthesis / Routing:
With 5 oscillators per voice including Sub-Osc, you have numerous possibilities to create wide and individual sounds. The modulation matrix is ??versatile and easy to program, as there is a ONE KNOB PER FUNCTION paradigm. Just choose Mod Source and Destination, done!

Sound:
I'm not a physicist, but if you know what VCO, VCF and VCA means, you can genuinely create your favorite sounds. From simple to complex, multi-LFO modulated sounds. You can also just experiment and surprise yourself, which sometimes happens by chance.
Even elaborate electro bass drums can be synthesized within a short time. Within 1 hour I could create a bitimbral bass drum electro bass arpeggio.

In addition, there are 4 banks with 99 presets each. This all times 2, factory write protected and user, where one can assemble his favorite sounds.

Live options:
Since almost every function has its own knob or knob, the good part can be used very well. No wonder that greats like Trent Reznor mega are keen on the new prophet.
The two touch and pressure sensitive sliders are also really great if you want to combine several controller functions. So you can also modulate both patches with a slider.

Overall I miss really as good as nothing:
- Reverb can be reproduced with the delay function
- Wavetable is small, but by the 12-voice and the bitimbrale you can build very complex patches.

For example, you can run 2 arps at different speeds.

Mid-sized is also everything, whether classic via DIN port or USB Midi. Although I rarely use a sequencer, the prophet is played by hand!

I certainly forgot something, but I do not want to write a novel. So if someone has questions or wishes an opinion: contact me.

Have fun!

Ingo
