Dave Smith Instruments Mono Evolver Keyboard – No Longer Available

Monophonic analog/digital synthesizer
MFR# DSI-2001

Product Description

This monophonic, performance-oriented synth is the latest addition to the Evolver family.  The voice architecture is identical to its siblings, but it sports a 3-octave keyboard, pitch and mod wheels, and enough knobs and switches to put a smile on the face of even the most jaded tweaker.

Features:

  • Monstrous four oscillator voice architecture: two analog and two digital
  • True stereo signal path with separate Curtis analog low-pass filters in each channel
  • Dedicated onboard effects (feedback, delay, distortion, high-pass filter, etc.)
  • Highly accessible sound control for easy, intuitive operation: 58 knobs and 33 switches
  • 16 x 4 step sequencer really brings the Evolver to life with evolving “pseudo-polyphonic” sounds
  • Stereo audio input for audio processing of external stereo or mono signals, enabling the synth to act as a unique stereo effects processor
  • Everything (sequencer, LFOs, and delay) syncs perfectly to MIDI
  • Easy-to-navigate matrix-style interface for quick editing and real-time control of 8 parameters simultaneously
  • Multiple Evolvers can be daisy-chained for increased polyphony


Specifications:

  • Three-octave, semi-weighted action keyboard with velocity and aftertouch
  • Spring-loaded pitch wheel and assignable mod wheel
  • 512 fully editable programs (four banks of 128) oscillators: two digitally controlled analog oscillators (DCOs) with selectable sawtooth, triangle, saw/triangle mix, and pulse waves (with pulse-width modulation), and hard sync; two digital wavetable oscillators with Prophet VS waves and wave sequencing capability, FM and ring modulation
  • White noise generator
  • 2 Low-pass filters: 1 analog Curtis filter per channel, selectable 2- and 4-pole operation (self-resonating in 4-pole mode).
  • 3 Envelope Generators: filter, VCA, and assignable (four-stage ADSR).
  • 4 LFOs.
  • Glide (portamento): separate rates per oscillator.
  • Analog VCAs.
  • Digital high-pass filter.
  • Digital delays: 3 separate, syncable, stereo delay lines.
  • Tuned feedback with "Grunge": use feedback as a pitched sound source.
  • Distortion and "Output Hack."
  • 16 x 4 step sequencer: one sequence per Program.
  • Arpeggiator: up, down, up/down, and assignable modes, and latched operation.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
