Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2

The Dave Smith Instruments Pro2 is Dave Smiths flagship mono synth and in his own words, his 'most powerful mono synth ever.' The Pro2 carves out its own identity in its field with all new dual analog filter technology. Nothing else sounds like it and nothing else performs like it. It raises the bar for monosynths and redefines the word “fat.”

Featuring a dual filter design, filter 1 is a 4-pole low-pass design inspired by the original Prophet-5 filter. Filter 2 is a state-variable design inspired by the Oberheim SEM and can be continuously varied between low-pass, notch, and high-pass operation, with an optional band-pass mode. The two filters function in either serial or parallel, or anywhere in between. Two of the four oscillators can be routed through Filter 1 with the other two routed through Filter 2 for a broad range of tonal possibilities.

Features

  • A monster step sequencer
  • superwaves
  • digital bucket-brigade delay
  • Four high-resolution digital oscillators
  • A sub oscillator
Specifications

SPECIFICATIONS

  • OSCILLATORS
    • Four DSP-based oscillators plus one sine wave sub oscillator
    • Four classic wave shapes (saw, square, triangle, sine) per oscillator
    • Twelve selectable complex shapes per oscillator
    • Thirteen Superwaves
    • Three noise types per oscillator: white, pink, violet
    • Shape modulation/pulse width/superwave detune amount
    • Oscillator cross modulation: frequency modulation (FM) and amplitude modulation (AM)
    • Hard sync, individual Glide, Oscillator Slop
  • PARAPHONIC PLAYABILITY
    • True 4-voice paraphonic mode with individually-gated envelopes 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 trash the signal. It’s harsh yet musical.
    • Drive is a soft saturator for adding soft distortion and harmonic content to the signal
  • FILTERS
    • Dual analog filters operate in serial or parallel
    • Filter 1 is a 4-pole resonant analog low-pass filter inspired by the original Prophet-5 filter.
    • Filter 2 is a 2-pole resonant analog state-variable filter inspired by the Oberheim SEM filter and can be continuously varied between low-pass, notch, and high-pass operation, with an optional band-pass mode.
    • Oscillator Split allows oscillators 1 & 2 to be sent to Filter 1 and oscillators 3 & 4 to Filter 2.
  • FEEDBACK AND DELAY
    • Tuned feedback
    • Three-tap syncable delays with feedback and amount controls, pan, and high-pass and low-pass filtering, all per delay. A separate fourth delay is a digital bucket-brigade delay (BBD) for analog-style effects.
  • ENVELOPES
    • Five Delay + ADSR envelopes (Filter 1, Filter 2, VCA , and two Auxiliary envelopes)
    • Auxiliary envelopes 4 and 5 freely assignable to multiple modulation destinations
    • All envelopes can repeat/loop
  • LFOS
    • Four syncable LFOs with phase offset and slew per LFO
  • MODULATION
    • 16 x 2 modulation matrix with over 50 mod sources and over 140 mod destinations
    • Modulation assignment buttons enable quick and easy modulation routing.
    • Mod Matrix runs up to audio rates.
  • CONTROL VOLTAGE INS & OUTS AND GATE OUT
    • Four 1-volt-per-octave control voltage inputs and outputs for interfacing with modular synths and other CV-compatible devices
    • Parameters that can be sent to CV outputs include oscillators, LFOs, envelopes, sequencer tracks and any other source within the modulation matrix. Runs up to audio rates
    • Gate Out for triggering external CV-compatible devices; any CV in can be used as a gate input.
  • SEQUENCER
    • Advanced step sequencer with two modes: 16 steps x 16 tracks or 32 steps x 8 tracks
    • Supports real-time input, rests, and variable-length sequences
    • Syncs to MIDI clock and external audio and CV input
    • Sequences can control not only oscillator pitch but any parameter in the modulation matrix.
  • ARPEGGIATOR
    • Sophisticated arpeggiator with up, down, up+down, random, assign modes
    • Syncs to MIDI clock and external audio and CV inputs
    • Re-latching arpeggiation
  • PROGRAMMABLE DISTORTION
    • Stereo analog distortion
  • CONTROLS
    • More than 50 knobs and 65 buttons enable deep and comprehensive editing with minimal menu diving.
    • Backlit pitch and mod wheels are easily visible in low-light situations and have a smooth yet precise feel and response.
    • Independently adjustable upper and lower pitch wheel range
    • Two assignable position- and pressure-sensitive latchable touch sliders for enhanced interactivity and control
    • Full-sized, three-and-a-half-octave, semi-weighted keyboard with velocity and aftertouch
  • MEMORY
    • 396 user and 396 factory programs
    • Playlist mode for generating easily accessible setlists of your favorite programs
  • IN/OUT
    • 1 MIDI In, 1 MIDI Out, and 1 MIDI Thru/Out 2 port
    • USB port for bidirectional MIDI communication
    • 4 CV inputs (4 x 1/8″ jack)
