The Prophet '08 61-Key Analog Synthesizer from Dave Smith Instruments is an 8-voice analog synthesizer with 61 semi-weighted velocity sensitive keys with aftertouch.

Each voice features 2 digitally controlled oscillators that offer the selection between sawtooth, triangle, saw/triangle mix, and pulse waves. In addition, each voice has an analog Curtis low-pass filter. The Prophet '08 keyboard also has 3 envelope generators, 4 LFOs, a 16x4 step sequencer, and an arpeggiator to further alter, manipulate, and shape your sounds.

You can connect a sustain pedal and an expression pedal to the Prophet '08 keyboard. The expression pedal input doubles as an input for control voltage for further sonic manipulation. Designed to provide a hands-on experience, the Prophet '08's parameters are adjusted via potentiometer knobs. Four 1/4" unbalanced TS outputs provide audio output, while a stereo 1/4" headphone connection allows for playing in quiet environments. The Prophet '08 keyboard has 5-pin DIN MIDI input, output, thru, and a poly chain output that allows you to link it to a second Prophet '08 module or keyboard to increase the voice count to 16.
