    Dave Smith Pro 2 Keyboard Synthesizer, 49-Key Product Description

    The Pro 2 is Dave Smith's flagship mono synth, and as Dave himself puts it, his "most powerful mono synth ever." The Pro 2 shares the same exceptional ergonomics and playability as its 12-voice sibling, the Prophet 12, but carves out distinctly different sonic territory with an all-new dual analog filter architecture, a monster step sequencer, superwaves, digital bucket-brigade delay, and a lot more. Nothing else sounds like it and nothing else performs like it. It raises the bar for monosynths and redefines the word "fat."

    A Classic for a New Generation

    The Pro 2 is a fusion of classic analog synthesizer design and cutting-edge digital technology. It boasts four high-resolution digital oscillators, plus a sub oscillator. The oscillators produce both classic and complex wave shapes and can frequency and amplitude modulate each other in any operator and modulator configurations you choose for harmonically-rich FM and AM sounds. A set of Character controls adds high and low frequency boost, bit and sample rate reduction, and tape saturation emulation to the Pro 2s sonic palette.

    Two Filters Based on Vintage Designs

    At the heart of the Pro 2s gutsy sound is its all-new 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.

    Advanced Sequencing

    One of the most exciting features of the Pro 2 is its sequencer--possibly the most powerful step sequencer ever designed for a synth. With up to 32 steps and 16 tracks, it provides real-time input, rests, and variable-length sequences. It also syncs to MIDI clock and external audio input. Sequence tracks can control any parameter in the Pro 2s extensive modulation matrix.

    Plays Well with Modulars

    The Pro 2s flexible architecture opens the door to not only processing external audio, but also to interfacing with modular synths through its 4 rear-panel control voltage inputs and outputs and a dedicated gate output. Control voltages can be assigned and routed from within the modulation matrix and can run at audio rates for extreme modulation effects. Some of the many parameters that can be sent to the CV outputs include oscillators, LFOs, envelopes, and sequencer tracks, making the Pro 2 a natural choice for the center of your studio or live setup.

    Delays, Envelopes, LFOs, Arpeggiator, and a Multitude of Modulation

    The Pro 2s delay section provides three digital delays with pan, and high-pass and low-pass filtering controls. A fourth delay is a digital bucket-brigade delay (BBD) for analog-style effects. There are four loop-able five-stage envelope generators, four syncable LFOs with slew and phase offset, a full-featured arpeggiator, and a sixteen slot modulation matrix with dozens of modulation sources and destinations.

    Monophonic by Design, Paraphonic by Choice

    The Pro 2 was designed primarily as a super-powerful monosynth, but it's also a true, four-voice paraphonic synth that allows you to control each of its four oscillators individually with their own envelope. This makes playing four-note chords not only possible, but very expressive. Package all of this power in a three-and-a-half octave, semi-weighted keyboard with velocity and channel aftertouch, add two backlit pitch and mod wheels and two location and pressure sensitive touch sliders, and you've got one of the most feature-rich, awe-inspiring synthesizers ever created.

    Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2 Keyboard Synthesizer, 49-Key Technical Description

    - 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)
