Dave Smith Instruments Prophet '08 Module

From the product page:

With real analog oscillators, famed Curtis low-pass filters, and analog VCAs, the Prophet ’08 is capable of reproducing the familiar sounds of its legendary predecessors. But modern features like a greatly expanded modulation matrix and additional modulation sources—like three envelopes and four LFOs per voice—take it way beyond the vintage gear and make this a worthy and unique addition to the Prophet family tree.

Prophet ’08 Module features

  • 16 x 4 gated step sequencer.
  • Arpeggiator.
  • 2 digitally controlled analog oscillators (DCOs) per voice with selectable sawtooth, triangle, saw/triangle mix, and pulse waves (with pulse-width modulation), and hard sync.
  • White noise generator.
  • 1 Analog Curtis low-pass filter per voice, selectable 2- and 4-pole operation (self-resonating in 4-pole mode).
  • 3 Envelope Generators: filter, VCA, and assignable (four-stage ADSR + delay); Envelope 3 can loop.
  • 4 LFOs.
  • Glide (portamento): separate rates per oscillator.
  • Analog VCAs.
  • Rack mounted: 4U.
  • MIDI In, Out, Thru, and Poly Chain.
  • Main stereo audio output: 1/4″ unbalanced.
  • Output B stereo audio output: 1/4″ unbalanced.
  • Sustain pedal input: accepts normally on or normally off momentary footswitch.
  • Pedal/CV input: responds to expression pedals or control voltages ranging from 0 to 5 VDC (protected against higher or negative voltages).
  • Headphone output: 1/4″ stereo phone jack.

The Prophet ’08 Module has a suggested retail price of $1649 ($1499 street).
