From the blurb
The return of a legend or the beginning of a new era? 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. Of course, it includes features we now take for granted, like velocity and aftertouch. Add to that performance features like an arpeggiator, gated step sequencer, and the ability to split and layer sounds. 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.

Comments About the Sounds:
Classic Dave Smith pedigree. Not everyone loves em, but they are impressive and pretty organic

and Sonic Bot for the pic
