SUPERBOOTH16 – Synth Expo Berlin (Part 2)

We met Dave Smith. The famous synth pioneer is very agile and inventive, and he doesn’t seem to become older! He proudly presented the Prophet-6, OB-6 and Pro-2 – the current first class instruments of DSI. I had some questions regarding the family’s prehistoric ancestor Prophet-5, but Dave was not very much interested, which is, admittedly, quite understandable. True pioneers don’t live in the past. They look ahead!

C15 is a FM-synthesizer without MIDI (!), aimed for synth PLAYERS. It gives you access to every single aspect in sound. There’s a high-quality 61-note keyboard and two ribbon controllers … and it generates its own network, so you can hook up your iPad (or whatever) for convenient programming via touchscreen …
