The Pro 2 merges classic analog synthesizer design with cutting-edge digital technology. It boasts four high-resolution digital oscillators (plus a sub oscillator) with both classic and complex wave shapes and is both FM and AM capable. Character controls add high and low frequency boost, bit and sample rate reduction, and tape saturation emulation.

The Pro 2's gutsy sound comes from its all-new dual filter design. Filter 1 is a 4-pole low-pass design inspired by the original Prophet-5 filter. Filter 2 is a state-variable design inspired by the Oberheim SEM and can be continuously varied between low-pass, notch, and high-pass operation, with an optional band-pass mode. The two filters function in either serial or parallel, or anywhere in between. Two of the four oscillators can be routed through Filter 1 with the other two routed through Filter 2 for broad tonal possibilities.

The Pro 2’s powerful sequencer features up to 32 steps and 16 tracks, real-time input, rests, and variable-length sequences. It also syncs to MIDI clock and external audio input. Sequence tracks can control any modulation matrix parameter.

The Pro 2 can process external audio and also interface with modular synths through 4 control voltage inputs and outputs and a dedicated gate output. Control voltages can be routed from within the modulation matrix and can run at audio rates. LFOs, envelopes, and sequencer tracks and more can all be sent to the CV outputs.

The Pro 2's delay section provides three digital delays with pan, and high-pass and low-pass filtering controls. A fourth delay is a digital bucket-brigade delay (BBD) for analog-style effects. There are five loopable five-stage envelope generators, four syncable LFOs, an arpeggiator, and a sixteen slot modulation matrix.

The Pro 2 also provides true, four-voice paraphonic playback allowing you to control each of its four oscillators individually with their own envelope.

Package this power in a three-and-a-half octave, semi-weighted keyboard with velocity and channel aftertouch, add backlit pitch and mod wheels and two location and pressure sensitive touch sliders, and you've got one of the most awe-inspiring synthesizers ever.

Controller Types • More than 50 knobs and 65 buttons enable deep and comprehensive editing with minimal menu diving.
• Backlit pitch and mod wheels are easily visible in low-light situations and have a smooth yet precise feel and response.
• Independently adjustable upper and lower pitch wheel range
• Two assignable position- and pressure-sensitive latchable touch sliders for enhanced interactivity and control
•Full-sized, three-and-a-half-octave, semi-weighted keyboard with velocity and aftertouch
Polyphony Mono
Wave Memory • Four DSP-based oscillators plus one sine wave sub oscillator
• Four classic wave shapes (saw, square, triangle, sine) per oscillator
• Twelve selectable complex shapes per oscillator
• 13 Superwaves
• Three noise types per oscillator: white, pink, violet
Preset Types 396 user and 396 factory programs
Effects Type Five high-quality digital effects. Thicken the signal and add harmonics or completely destroy the signal pre-filter.
• Girth and Air are high and low shelf equalizers with harmonic excitement. Useful for thickening and/or adding air to the signal.
