Over all a pretty great instrument
I love the possibilities that the DSI REV2 offers and it sounds and plays wonderfully. It would get a 5/5 review from me if it wasn't for a couple issues I have with it. One being the low end is a bit lacking and I also feel DSI went too cheap on the buttons on this thing. For what ever reason I have a Hell of a time getting the buttons (not knobs) to respond. The Record button for the sequencer usually has to be pressed pretty hard and usually multiple times before it gets a response.
Sound creating machine
I have this synthesizer for some time now. I use it to create new sounds for studio records. Also for soundtracks for movies. You have a lot op presets and a lot of patches to save your creations. De sound lacks some bass. That is a problem with most polyphonic synthesizers. That is why the moog is so popular.
When I finally decided I needed a polyphonic analog serendipitously this beauty just came on the market and I snatched up the 16 voice version. I am still learning something new about it every time I use it but even just the presets sound amazing! Am gradually setting up so that I can record this without a DAW and hope to have many years of making great tracks with this dandy!
The REV2 is Dave Smith’s reimagining of his Prophet ’08 poly synth — a modern classic that has appeared on countless recordings and stages since its debut in 2007. As Dave puts it, “The REV2 is the realization of our effort to enhance and improve everything we could about the original design — all at a more accessible price.”
The 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.
Best of all, 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.
