What do we want next from Dave Smith?

Post by Pete » Thu Nov 15, 2007 1:19 am

These threads seem to make dreams come true, so I guess we should do them more often. The Prophet 08 and the Boom Chik...

I say, 2 vco mono and an 8 voice sampler with analog filters. Basically, a Prophet 08 with samples playback instead of DCOs, and one with 2 VCOs instead of 16 DCOs. It seems like the sampler could be made with parts already used in the Prophet and the Boom Chik.

Your thoughts?

I say Dave Smith should take on Moog once and for all time. A 3 VCO minimoog/voyager- killer complete with most of the great features of the MEK...4 LFO's, insane modulation matrix, multitrack sequencer etc. It should also have a ribbon controller And it should be called the Infinity.

That or he could just rehash the pro one and actually make it with a good build quality and lots of flashing leds.

Uhh, I think you misunderstood. I am asking what product we hope Dave will make next. I very much intend to get a Prophet 08 and possibly a Boomchik when it finally arrives.

I'll go simple on this one and just say that I'd love to see a rack/desktop version of the 08.

At least he's said several times in interviews that he is not interested in "remaking" one of his older classics like the Pro-One.
The Pro08 is so much more than the Prophet5 that it cannot be regarded as a simple remake.

No I did not. Think about it. Read the f**k post. S L O W L Y if it helps. I hate this f**k next next next attitude. No wonder we have shagged the f**k world up the arsepiece and whispered; "Did you enjoy the pain ?"
Thank f**k Beethoven and Wagner never had Pro Tools; or Cubase or a Prophet 8; or even a public that could voice their opinion every f**k minute, without though of what the opinion actually entails.
Yes f**k it, a Prophet 601, except this time, thats the number of oscillators. All analogue.
Sexy number non ?? :evil:

I take it you are both a very stupid, as well as angry person. I am sad for you. If every one was like you we wouldn't have a forum or synths to discuss.

At least a 4 voice poly evolver in a small box with lots of knobs and at least 4 tracks of sequencing. Like the Monomachine...but made by DSI.

I'd love to see a modern version of a Pro-One myself, but the P08 does look pretty fantastic!

for once I agree with crow-this whole post is a loaded question. We heard it here first when the Pro8 was released, and before it was even available, people were slagging it. What was that, a couple months ago? And now we are wondering "what will be next?"

and frankly, the ideas I've all heard so far = an all analogue MEK, or some variation of... not exactly original or likely.
Do you even post on vse bro?

Modern Pro-one for sure and a nicely priced desktop version ala the DEVO.

Forums also mean that people have different opinions, Pete. Just because you don't like crow's opinion, doesn't mean he has to leave to make the world a better place.

You say with people like him there would be no forums and no synths?
What's the point of a discussion forum if everyone are just licking eachothers backs all the time in perfect beautiful harmony?

Oh, and scots are supposed to be angry. Nothing more pleasing than hearing an angry scot go on a tantrum.

Mind that some may be, but not all are. ;)
