As people have said elsewhere, the PO8 seems to have a noticeably different tonality to the analog half of the evolvers ; smoother, would be a good description, I think.

Well, truth be told, I was only using my PEK for "analogue" timbres anyway though I wished I didn't have to sell it...I may still get a PER down the road a bit. These were some of the sounds I was programming on my PEK:

...now maybe you can see why the Prophet'08 is so appealing to me. I have plenty of resources for the glitchy/digital stuff...

Of course, it is in the eye of the beholder, but I wonder if the P08 is the right instrument for these kind of sounds though.

Truth be told, I had an Evolver too and was using it for the analog sounds mainly ... and I was a little disappointed about the very weak sound. Let Dave tweaked away the very, it still leaves the weak. :wink:

Well, we'll have to agree to disagree then because I love the sounds I got from the blue-skinned beast :D
Remember, too, that MP3s are bandwidth-challenged and use lossy compression.

The PEK could nail my old P600 and Pro-one sounds dead on...the P'08 should be able to do even better.

What analog synths, in your opinion, provide a sound that is not "weak"?

Here's a FACT about the P'08: it has a Poly Chain output.

Here's my SPECULATION: we're not done with products in the Prophet '08 series.

Hopefully he'll follow it with a rack version which he did with the Evolver long before the PEK showed up. Last thing I need is another KB. I like programming my Evolver from MidiQuest too.

Cue the 30 posts of people who will complain that this thing is going to have a wall-wart.
