DAVE SMITH INSTRUMENTS PROPHET 08
The Prophet '08 PE (potentiometer edition) has all the features of the standard Prophet '08, but many of the front panel's rotary controls use potentiometers (AKA "pots") for more "vintage-style" control. (The standard Prophet '08 primarily uses rotary encoders. For a complete list of the Prophet '08 PE's parameters and their control type, click here.)
