DSI Pro 2 & Prophet 12

The Pro 2 is the most useful synth I’ve ever owned

As I mentioned in articles on Create Digital Music and Synthtopia, the Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2 is the most useful synth I’ve ever owned.  In addition to its great sound and expressive capabilities, the extensive and flexible Control Voltage features really bring the rest of my (analog CV) synths to life.  The DSI Pro 2 is just a great all-round piece of gear.

I’m also very happy to hear that Yamaha recently gave DSI back the rights to the Sequential Circuit name.  Very classy move.  Bravo!

I was able to program quite a bit of expression into the sliders and mod wheel on this Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2 patch/sequence. Here the mod wheel and two sliders simultaneously control a wide variety of parameters including multiple delay amounts, 2 filter cutoff frequencies, multiple oscillator levels, oscillator FM, filter routing and resonance. Combined with the ability to mute and unmute sequence steps and tweak parameters with its wealth of knobs, this is a very playable sequence that can morph in a number of ways.

Using a Haken Continuum to control a Pro 2 via CV:

I had the opportunity to borrow a DSI Prophet 12 for a couple weeks. Time well spent.

Chris Stack Xenography Album

“…an album of inspired soundscapes. Feel free to stream it first if you have any doubts. Rest assured that mere seconds into the first track, you will know that you are in capable hands.” - Ted Stahl

On “Xenography” a vast array of synthesizers, piano, nylon string guitar, Moog Guitar, shakuhachi and voices pure and processed, come together to create a soundtrack for travels to oblique destinations.
