The Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2 is a deep and powerful hybrid analog monophonic synthesizer with paraphonic capabilities. Featuring 4 digital oscillators that can be played in unison or individually, the Pro 2 uses two filters per oscillator that can be routed in series or parallel, based on the low-pass filter of the Sequential Circuits Prophet-5 and the state-variable filter of the Oberheim SEM. The Pro 2 also offers a multi-track 16x16 or 32x8 step sequencer, sliders and wheels for control, a 44-key keyboard with velocity and aftertouch, a complex modulation matrix, and built-in effects such as delay, feedback, distortion, and the Character section.

    It's deep. I've been a synth guy for a long time and have a Dave Smith Tempest so I'm familiar with the software. If you want one, get it! It's too bad I'll die before coming to any end to this fine machine. I think it's the greatest synth ever made.. now If I can get a pro 12....
