When you use DSI's poly chain feature, do the chained synths automatically react to every knob movement and program change on the master keyboard? Capable of such diverse sounds. Even a Poly Evolver with 4 standard voices sounds big... but with 12 polychained voices, it starts to approach extreme wall of sound potential. 13 posts • Page 1 of 1. thesnow Super Deluxe Wiggler Posts: 1833 Joined: Sat Apr 28, 2012 10:40 pm. I've been pretty dang happy with my PEK and find more and more to explore with it. The racks + Poly Evolver audio levels do not have this issue, the levels are consistent across all 3 pieces of hardware. Hey there! by stikygum » Tue Dec 31, 2013 11:46 pm, Post Of course more often than not there are strengths of each that users might prefer one variable important moreso than another, which would make the decision easier. ;). If you have the MEK you can poly chain a PER (if you can find one). Prophet 12. I would take the PE any day over the P08. I ran a 5 voice evolved setup for a year or so. by digitalganesha » Thu Nov 28, 2013 11:40 pm, Post DSI’s hybrid products such as the Prophet VS, Poly Evolver and Pro 12 still deservedly have numerous users and in many ways the Poly Evolver is the prequel to DSI’s latest hybrid, the Prophet X. Badged as a Sequential product, the Prophet X looks menacing with its dark grey metal case and chassis, grey-stained wooden end cheeks, warm orange backlit wheels and switches and … If you could only choose 1, which would it be and why: Prophet VS PolyEvolver Prophet 12 If you could only choose 1, which would it be and why: Prophet VS PolyEvolver Prophet 12 Prophet VS vs. PolyEvolver vs. Prophet 12 - Gearslutz :), Hey all, FYI I've posted a 2nd demo on the 12-voice DSI Poly Evolver here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DECnyIxWy-8, New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast, More posts from the synthesizers community, Press J to jump to the feed. Yeah that's the way to go. thanks for all the opinions, lots to consider. The P12 seems great though--added polyphony, arpeggiator, etc. Of course that is my taste as far as the overdrive. Cookies help us deliver our Services. The power in it is incredible. Have fun! Yep, I know that. its pitfall is lack of any realtime control. I have never played a P12 but I had a P08 and a PE. But then you 'still' run the risk of missing out on stuff you didn't realize you would like from the other. Will create some demos soon... for those who have owned, what have your experiences been like with it? Moderators: Kent, Joe., luketeaford, lisa, Post i would never sell mine. the P12 in videos doesn't sound cool enough to spend 3K IMO. by thesnow » Thu Nov 28, 2013 6:17 pm, Post Which would you? Sorry for the op that this is off topic but not all days you can have conversation with the man himself. I do think it sounds huge, it provides a nice contrast to my analogs, and I like it's worth over twice what I paid for it. Any music gear discussions that don't fit into one of the other forums. But I do find myself gassing for a PEK or P12, but simply don't have the budget or physical space for either one.. Playing ambient chillout space music on 12-voice DSI POLY EVOLVER digital/analog synthesizer keyboard + 2 racks. The good thing in my opinion about the DSI stuff is it's new, so one day soonish it will be widely avail used. I would love to expand this thing further up to 20 voices, but the racks are getting hard to find... anyone selling? They don't turn up very often. I do not believe the PEK is capable of vector synthesis. Using 35 years of experience building synths, Dave Smith has created what he calls his "best synth yet." Completely agree, it has this alien-like futuristic sound that I haven't heard from other synths... also, the audio quality sounds pristine, so clear and hi-def, it's great.
