NAMM 2013 - Sonicstate Best Of Show Awards

We pick our very own best of - why not?      05/02/13

Best Synthesizer - Moog Sub Phatty/ Prophet 12

This award has to be split into two - who'd have thunk that we'd have two monster synths to choose from at this show.

Monosynth goes to the Moog Sub Phatty, even though I still can't pronounce the name correctly, anyone who saw our 30 minute, in-depth look with Amos Gaynes - the new synth-geek Youtube superstar, will understand the depth that this seemingly simple, fixed routing mono synth has to offer. With the addition of a noise source (yay) and multi-pole filter with multi-drive that lets you really change the character of the synth, it's got very good tweaking potential. Lots of really clever design, function and sound make this our choice for the synth category.

 

 

 

The polysynth goes to Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 12 - hands down its the most synthy polysynth commercially available - as Dave said in our video - "this one's my best one"

With DCOs running through analog filters, VCA and drive circuits, it has a monstrous 4 ocsillators per voice. From what we heard, its going to set the benchmark for the king of the polysynths right now.

The Prophet 12 has wavetable OSCs, and not Digitally controlled Analog OSCs.

Yes! Please make this happen. We need low latency drivers to make any audio app work on the android devices... ibn8.com supports your efforts.
