However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Keeping the same Prophet vibe, the Prophet 12 module is ready to handle and sound in any setting with a massive 12 voice polyphony, sophisticated architecture and a sleek design. The brand new digital/analog architecture sounds different than any other DSI line of synths.

The new Prophet 12 module has a digital front end followed by an all-analog signal path output. Each voice has five high-res digital oscillators, a digital character effects section, a resonant Curtis low-pass filter, a high-pass filter, a tune-able feedback circuit and a four-tap delay line with feedback per line.

The sonic potential and power of the Prophet 12 module is backed up further by four loopable five-stage generators, four syncable LFOS with slew and phase offset, a sophisticated arpeggiator and a sixteen slot modulation matrix with 26 mod sources and 97 modulation destinations!

Frequency and amplitude modulate the oscillators with incredible accuracy. You can freely assign oscillators in whatever operator and modulator configurations you choose. You can even assign each of the oscillators to modulate LFOs, envelope and filters.

The Streamlined interface of the Prophet 12 makes it quick and easy to control every parameter of the synth. Each synth section can be selected at the press of a button. Easily create modulation assignments using the Assign Mod buttons. Dedicated Low and High Pass Filter potentiometers provide quick and smooth control of the filters.

At home on your desk, rack or on stage, the Prophet 12 module has a rugged steel enclosure. An extensive MIDI implementation covers every available parameter on the synth, you can easily pair the Prophet 12 with your favourite MIDI controller or DAW.

A cutting edge hybrid synth, the Prophet 12 defines what a polyphonic synth is. A combination of form and function, it is sturdy, portable and elegant.

Features / Specifications


  • Five DSP-based oscillators per voice (including one sine wave sub oscillator)
  • Four classic wave shapes (saw, square, triangle, sine) 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 destroy the signal. It's harsh yet musical!
  • Drive is a soft saturator for adding soft distortion and harmonic content to the signal


  • Famed Curtis 2- or 4-pole resonant analog low-pass filter (self oscillates in 4-pole mode) per voice
