One signal path !

One signal path !

Which synth also has only 1 signal path ??? The P12 !   >:(
How's that possible? The P12 is supposed to be one of the best synths currently available, but it has only one signal-path for the filters, vca and eg's in stead of one for each voice !
I owned a lot of synths since the 80's and only my cheapo Poly 800 has one signal path as well.
What a big bummer.
Can't believe that a renown magazine like Sound on Sound doesn't mention this... I really have to rethink my opinion about them.

Not quite sure what you are saying here, can you elaborate?

Some misunderstanding here. There is certainly two stereo signal paths all the way through to the outputs because I have been running Cassandra (my prophet12) in quadraphonic for over 18 months.

And is also has filters, VCAs and envelopes for each voice.

The original poster may be confusing the voice architecture of the Pro-2 (one voice, with 4-osc mono-/paraphonic operation, two series / parallel filters) with that of the Prophet-12 (12 voices, each with 4-osc, two series / parallel filters).

On both units, the delays can be panned in stereo as well.

Hey guys, can each voice be programmed separately? On a voice by voice basis.
