    DSI's latest Hybrid Instrument - Prophet X 8Dio product demo

    Sign in to disable this ad
    In brief, this is a product demo event that I recorded at Vintage King Audio. Gerry Bassermann (Dave Smith Instruments Product Specialist) gives an in-depth insight into DSI's ground breaking Prophet X. Out of ALL DSI Synths, this is the first time that I find a synth fully useful for my own playing style. The 61 keys goes for around $4k and that's all they have at the moment. Gerry couldn't comment on possible sound module or 76 key version...

    It comes with 150 GB of internal 8Dio samples. Of course they can all be manipulated through the Prophet X's sound sculpting features. There's another 50 gig available for user samples. 8Dio will also sell various sample packs for the PX.

    I forgot to ask if these 8Dio samples were specifically created for this particular keyboard, or they used a collection of their existing libraries. That'd be interesting to know especially if one already owns a lot of 8Dio sample libraries.

    This video doesn't do justice to the sonic quality of the instrument. It's an amazing tool for writing commercials, sound tracks, orchestral cues, cinematic stuff...etc.

    I had the chance to play with one of these at the DSI office when I was in there getting my Poly Evolver repaired. It's an unbelievable keyboard and shot to the very top of my to-buy list of gear.

    It's basically like a new ASR-10, minus live sampling capabilities. That part is unfortunate, but I can live without it. The thing sounds incredible.

    I loved it too. Now with added polyphony and the 76 key version? I might even get one myself.
