Legendary Sound Reproduction

The Prophet '08 can reproduce the familiar sounds of its legendary predecessors, but also boasts modern features like a greatly expanded modulation matrix and additional modulation sources, including three envelopes and four LFOs per voice. The broad array of knobs allows for direct, real-time editing and performance with control right at your fingertips.

Integrated 16 x 4 Step Sequencer

Features on the Prophet '08 include a gated 16 x 4 step sequencer, arpeggiator, split or stacked key modes with separate stereo outputs per layer, and rack ears for optional rack mounting. When rack mounted the input and output jacks are on top of the module. They are recessed about 1", and using cables with angled MIDI and audio plugs will avoid interfering with the rack space above.
