Dave Stewart (inventor of the original Prophet 5 and VS) has introduced a brand new analog synth, the Prophet 8 for the new millennium:
The Prophet '08 is an eight-voice synthesizer with a 100% analog signal path. While the Prophet '08's overall sonic character will be familiar to anyone who knows Dave's work from the '70s and '80s, it is much more than just a vintage reissue with a few new bells and whistles...The modulation possibilities are much deeper than anything Sequential ever produced, making it capable of producing sounds the "classics" simply could not. Dave has always said that he is only interested in moving forward. The Prophet '08 is the product of evolution, not nostalgia.
Looks very promising. Can't wait to try one at the local music shop.
