Product Description

One Voice to Rule Them All

Dave Smith calls the Pro 2 his “most powerful mono synth ever.” It shares the same exceptional ergonomics and playability as its 12-voice sibling, the Prophet 12, but carves out distinctly different sonic territory with an all-new dual analog filter architecture, a monster step sequencer, superwaves, digital bucket-brigade delay, and a lot more. Nothing else sounds like it and nothing else performs like it. The Pro 2 raises the bar for mono synths and redefines the word “fat.”

• Four DSP-based oscillators plus one sine wave sub oscillator
• Four classic wave shapes (saw, square, triangle, sine) per oscillator
• Twelve selectable complex shapes per oscillator
• 13 Superwaves
• Three noise types per oscillator: white, pink, violet
• Shape modulation/pulse width/superwave detune amount
• Oscillator cross modulation: frequency modulation (FM) and amplitude modulation (AM)
• Hard sync, individual Glide, Oscillator Slop

Paraphonic Playability
• True 4-voice paraphonic mode with individually-gated envelopes per oscillator

Character Effects
• Five high-quality digital effects. Thicken the signal and add harmonics or completely destroy the signal pre-filter
• Girth and Air are high and low shelf equalizers with harmonic excitement. Useful for thickening and/or adding air to the signal
• Hack and Decimate are sample and bit rate reduction algorithms which can add subtle grit or completely trash the signal, it’s harsh yet musical
• Drive is a soft saturator for adding soft distortion and harmonic content to the signal

• Dual analog filters operate in serial or parallel
• Filter 1 is a 4-pole resonant analog low-pass filter inspired by the original Prophet-5 filter
• Filter 2 is a 2-pole resonant analog state-variable filter inspired by the Oberheim SEM filter and can be continuously varied between low-pass, notch, and high-pass operation, with an optional band-pass mode
• Oscillator Split allows oscillators 1 & 2 to be sent to Filter 1 and oscillators 3 & 4 to Filter 2

Feedback and Delay
• Tuned Feedback
• Three-tap syncable delay with feedback and amount controls, pan, and high-pass and low-pass filtering, all per delay. A separate fourth delay is a digital bucket-brigade delay (BBD) for analog-style effects

• Five Delay + ADSR envelopes (Filter 1, Filter 2, VCA , and two Auxiliary envelopes)
• Auxiliary envelopes 4 and 5 freely assignable to multiple modulation destinations
• All envelopes can repeat/loop

• Four syncable LFOs with phase offset and slew per LFO

• 16 x 2 modulation matrix with over 50 mod sources and over 140 mod destinations
• Parameters that can be sent to CV outputs include oscillators, LFOs, envelopes, sequencer tracks and any other source within the modulation matrix. Runs up to audio rates
• Gate Out for triggering external CV-compatible devices; any CV in can be used as a gate input

And More
• Control Voltage Ins & Outs and Gate Out
• 32 Step Sequencer
• Arpeggiator
• Programmable Distortion
• More than 50 knobs & 50 Buttons
• 396 user and 396 factory programs
