Introducing the Dave Smith Prophet 08 Pot Edition

Since the release of the Prophet ’08 in August 2007, Dave Smith has received numerous requests for a version with more vintage-style controls. The standard Prophet ’08 primarily uses rotary encoders for its front panel controls, but some customers prefer potentiometers (AKA pots) like those used on the vintage Prophets, particularly for the more performance-oriented parameters like filter cutoff and resonance. The new Prophet ’08 Pot Edition offers an alternative with 38 of the 52 front panel parameters controlled by pots; rotary encoders are still used for the remainder of the controls.
