Celebrating 30 Years of Great Synth Design (a little early…)! This is the message Dave is giving us after the rumours on the new Prophet 8 emerged onto the internet. Several websites on synth- and music gear brought us the first details on this new 8 voice analog beast Dave was working on.
This is what the Dave Smith website is displaying at the moment:
“The rumors are true. (Well, most of ’em, anyway.) Dave has emerged from his underground lair (the Dave Cave?) with a fresh take on a classic, the all new Prophet ’08. It is an eight-voice synthesizer with a 100% analog audio signal path. And it will be shipping very soon. More details will be available here on the Web site in a few days. Following hot on its heels will be the Prophet ’08 Special Edition, each of which will be hand-signed by Dave and which will feature lighted wheels (RED!) and exotic leopardwood end panels. And for those of you who are wondering what happened to BoomChik, stay calm. Do not panic. Development is progressing nicely. Stay tuned!”
