Smaller, more stable, more voices (click to enlarge)
The second in the ASB series takes the form of the Pro-12, another classic model, this time of the Prophet variety. The original Prophet V had 5 voices, but the Pro-12 has, um, 12. The original P5 was the first to have total digital recall of itâ€™s voices (or put simply memories) and took the 80â€™s by storm with almost anyone who was using synths owning one. The Pro-12 ASB benefits from the same sound engine as the Minimax ASB. While the sound was designed to be â€œgenuinely oldâ€�, other features have been taken to a contemporary level: Pro-12 integrates with your computer via USB and offers 12 voices of polyphony. Patches can be edited directly on the hardware panel or using the supplied remote-control software which is available for both Windows and OS-X. The Pro-12 is now available at a suggested retail price of 789 EUR net.
