Dave Smith talks us through the all analog Prophet 08 features and plays a few sounds for us.
We knew about the Prophet 08 keyboard but the wood panelled Desktop Module version came as a pleasant surprise. Here's a few pics...

The Prophet '08 Synthesizer Module is a tabletop "knobby" module with all of the features and controls of the Prophet '08 Keyboard (minus the keyboard, of course) in an even more compact enclosure. We just loove those wooden end cheeks but it also includes rack ears for optional rack-mounting.

Pricing and Availability:
Prophet 08 keyboard: $2000
Prophet 08 desktop module: $1500. Shipping in March. More information:

    Hi Dave! You're the best. Thanks a ton for the new Rack. So many of us don't need another keyboard but the rack is very welcome. Also, thanks for using the Curtis chips. They sound great!

    I can't wait for the new rack to hit stores. I love my Special Edition '08, but I'm reluctant to bring it on a lot of gigs where it could get damaged. Now I'll have the rack good to go for live, and have double the polyphony via the poly chain function in the studio.
