“This Prophet 3000 is part of an estate liquidation. It was removed from the rack in a functioning studio. Cosmetically it is in pretty nice condition, there are some scratches on the case from putting it in and/or taking it out of the rack. There is one very tiny scratch on the face just above the remote rj11 connector, a few of the screw heads show some corrosion but I did not see any evidence of it anywhere else, inside or out (this is the reason I am offering it at such a low price). The musician/composer that owned this was a fabulous performer and performed in Vegas before he became ill and passed away.
What you see is what you get, except the line cord as it belongs to my monitor. I do not have an operating system for this sampler so I could not test it, but as you can see in the photos it does come up with the proper startup display. All I can say is that it did sit locked away for a few years and can probably use a good cleaning. It came from a working studio that I did personally hear operate as we were friends for years, all the other synths and equipment that I sold from this studio has been in working condition.” Auction ended.

“A very interesting piece of equipment. The Prophet 3000 is a rackmount sampler with sophisticated technologies for its time. Unfortunately just as it was produced Sequential went under so there are not too many of these things floating around. Its sampler specs are 16 Bit with variable sample rates up to 48 KHz at 21 seconds. 2 MB internal memory expandable to 8, auto editing features for quick sample looping and trimming, and very warm analog filters, SCSI, 8 individual outputs plus a stereo output. It also has a detachable face-plate with a great LCD display for more comfortable access and editing. If you gotta have a classic vintage sampler that’s fast and easy to use then the Prophet 3000 is a tempting offer.
These samplers are VERY RARE and VERY HARD TO FIND!
This auction is for 2 Prophet 3000′s, 3 controllers, 1 manual, 1 connecting cable and a bunch of sample discs.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“For sale is a vintage Sequential Circuits Prophet 3000 sampler. This is a very rare sampler and very hard to find. This is in excellent condition and works great. I believe it has 4MB sampling, which makes it even rarer as these were originally 2MB and this one was upgraded to 4MB. Comes with original manual, the main unit, remote controller with connecting cable, OS discs and a large sampling library, including several original sequential discs. Very simple and easy to use. A great collector’s item and awesome sequential sound.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
