Sequential REV2 16-voice Modul
Modulversjon av REV2 16V
A Modern Classic Reinvented
The Prophet Rev2 desktop module is just as powerful and easy to use
as its counterpart, the Prophet Rev2 keyboard. The module has the same
controls with the same the same ease of use as the keyboard
version. Best of all, it sounds just as awesome, because it’s exactly
the same on the inside — Dave Smith’s reimagining of his now-classic
Prophet ’08 poly synth.
The Prophet Rev2 retains all of the key features of the Prophet ’08
and expands on them. It has twice the polyphony, twice the mod matrix,
waveshape modulation on all waveforms, digital effects per layer in
stacked or split voice mode, a polyphonic step sequencer per layer, and
more. The result is a true analog powerhouse.
You can download any of the many existing libraries of Prophet ’08
sounds and they will not only sound identical, but can be enhanced with
the new features.
The Prophet Rev2 gets its bold, punchy sound from its 2/4 pole,
low-pass, resonant Curtis filters per voice. These are the same filters
used not only in the Prophet ’08, but in many classic instruments of the
70’s and 80’s. A separate Audio Mod control adds additional harmonic
complexity and movement.
A powerful new feature unique to the Prophet Rev2 is waveshape
modulation. You can now vary the “pulse width” of any of the four
waveforms (sawtooth, saw+tri, triangle, square). Using the Shape Mod
control, you can manually dial in a desired waveshape width or use an
LFO or other mod source for continuously shifting timbre. Even
single-oscillator sounds take on new depth and dimension. The tonal
possibilities are vast.
Effects Per Layer
The effects section provides reverb, delays (standard and BBD),
chorus, phase shifter, ring modulation, and distortion. In stacked or
split voice mode, you can apply a different effect to each layer.
Effects parameters can be modulated through the Mod Matrix.
Extended Mod Matrix
Also present from its predecessor is an easy-to-assign Mod Matrix,
now twice as big, with 8 individual slots and many more
sources/destinations. It’s a veritable sound designer’s playground.
Poly Step Sequencing
The polyphonic step sequencer allows up to 64 steps and up to 6 notes
per step. You can create a different sequence for each layer when you
are working in stacked or split voice mode, making it a powerful tool
for composition or performance. The sequencer also functions as a
modulation source in gated mode, allowing you to create up to 4
different 16-step sequences for complex modulation. Sequences allow ties
and rests, and can sync to an external MIDI clock. The arpeggiator
features note repeats, re-latching, and can be synced to external MIDI
clock, as well.
The knob-per-function front panel offers instant access to Prophet
Rev2 functions. Included are 512 permanent factory programs and 512
rewritable user programs.
All of this polyphonic muscle is packed into a compact desktop module
with an integrated power supply, USB support, and a crisp OLED display.
Whether you’re gigging or recording, it’s an analog powerhouse like no
