“Selling one of my Prophet VS synths. It’s in lovely condition and sounds beautiful. It will be packaged safely with special care given to the joystick. There’s really no other synth like it. ” Link
” Hello and welcome to this auction. I am a home studio hobbyist and am putting up for sale some of my favorite pieces of gear. Please check my other auctions for nice vintage synthesizers and recording equipment.
For sale is my Sequential Circuits Prophet VS keyboard. These keyboards are getting rare and don’t show up for sale more than a few times a year. It’s fully functional, in excellent shape, only minor markings to be found. Check out the pics below for your own inspection. Backlight is out but the screen is still easy enough to read in well lit room and drop-in replacement backlights are now easily available on ebay. Everything is working as it should (no guarantees on the aftertouch, theses are known to have aftertouch issues). I’ll even include some extra sysex patches I’ve collected from ROM & RAM cartridges over the years, sent via email attachment to the winning bidder. Amazing vector synthesis sound with analog filters. Nothing sounds like the VS! Haunting pads, thick leads, bells, effects, it’s amazing every time I play it. Power cable included. Sad to see it go, easily one of my favorites, but I have a rack and don’t need the keyboard anymore. Grab this before it’s gone!” Link
Das Gerät im seltenen Rackformat hatte einen Vorbesitzer (Chick Corea) und war Ende der 80 Anfang 90 im Tour und Studioeinsatz, also somit auch auf seinen Platten zu hören! Also handelt es sich hierbei um ein Stück wahre Musikgeschichte!!!
Der Prophet VS hat Gebrauchsspuren am Gehäuse, funktioniert aber technisch einwandfrei. Alle Taster, Slider und Vector Joystick funktionieren tadellos.
Es wurde am Gerät nur die Batterie ersetzt. Sonst also alles noch Originalzustand!
Für sein Alter befindet sich der VS in einem optisch und technisch gutem Zustand und ist allein schon wegen seiner Seltenheit ein absolutes “Muss” für Sammler und natürlich auch für jedes gute Studio das etwas auf sich hält.
Wenn ein Musikgerät heute den Titel “Rarität” besitzen sollte so gehört ein Sequential Circuits Prophet VS Rack zu 100% dazu – denn er ist wirklich sehr sehr selten!” Link
Works perfectly well, recently serviced by Analog Lab, New York City.” Link
“This Prophet VS is in great physical and functional condition. The only issues are the data slider cap is missing and aftertouch is only functional via MIDI (typical for a Prophet VS). There are probably also some minor scratches, typical for a synth this old.” Link

“The front panel is in good shape. The body of the unit shows lots of rack wear but that is hidden when it is in a rack. I’m including a rack case to protect it during shipping and as a bonus. It will be packed well inside a box but the case will add extra protection” Link
Vector Synthesis was revolutionary when the VS was introduced in 1986 and opened up a whole new way of modelling sound in real-time. Using four oscillators per voice with 127 waveforms (of which 32 could be user), this 8 voice synth changed everything. It’s dynamic waveform crossfading via the joystick is a fantastic feature and mono-aftertouch and velocity brought Sequential into the modern age – just a shame this was their last synth.
These historic synths are rare to find in such good condition but remain very popular with EM musicians like Aphex Twin and Ulrich Schnauss etc. The use of the Curtis chipset for the filter IC successfully pulls the digital and analogue together to make the VS very musical and exciting synth to the ears.” Link
“Very impressive and lush sound.
Tested 100% for working condition.
Except aftertouch, it does not working” Link
“For sale is my Sequential Circuits Prophet VS rack. These racks are super rare and don’t show up for sale more than a few times a year. This is the best way to get the SCI VS sounds without having the huge keyboard in your studio. This rack is fully functional and in excellent shape. Minor markings on the sides and top, front is really clean (check out the pics below for your own inspection). Backlight is bright and easy to read. Everything is working as it should. Amazing vector synthesis sound with analog filters. Nothing sounds like the VS! Haunting pads, thick leads, bells, effects, it’s amazing every time I play it. Also included are two cartridges, one ROM and one RAM, so you’ll get plenty of awesome sounds to play with.” Link

Sequential Circuits Prophet VS – Matrix’s all-time favorite synthesizer! This monster synth is in really great condition and sounds amazing. Her warmth and lush tones will absolutely blow your mind. The Prophet VS, to this day, is still one of the most highly sought after synths in the film industry for its ability to produce the most hauntingly wonderful soundtracks. This Prophet VS spent most of its life stored away in a case at The Warehouse Recording Studio during the 80s and 90s. She has a bit of case rash on her sides but the front panel is nearly perfect. All keys, buttons, switches, levers, and joystick function as expected. The LED display is nice and bright, the LCD backlight has dimmed over the years but readout is just fine. The after-touch sensor has aged and requires a good amount of pressure. The analog chorus is stereophonic bliss and the Curtis lowpass filter is the best in the biz. ” Link
“Hi there, here a chance to purchase a nice piece of synth history, my beloved SCI Prphet VS with a custom made flight case, 2 cartridges – VSRAM Model 240 + VSROM Model 241-02 and a copy of the owner’s manual. The synth is in good shape and 100% working. It has been serviced a year ago. I did the diagnostics (LED, NV RAM, output signal, keys/keyboard) a few days ago and everything is working fine. I’d like to point out that one key is broken though it is still working. The broken piece is available. I’m happy to answer further questions. Feel free to ask! Item is located in Esch-sur-Alzette/Luxembourg. Insured shipping is available within the EU (some countries are excluded).” Link
This unit is in EXCELLENT condition!!! There are light surface scratches on the top and bottom of the unit, as well as on the front face; but nothing too major. Overall it is really clean! The joystick is missing the tip, but it still functions as it should (see close up photos). The backlight of the display is out (common for a synth of this age), but it is still easily readable with ambient light. No cartridges are included. ” Link

“The Sequential Circuits Prophet VS is in great working condition. The VS is in good cosmetic shape. The patch screen is a bit dim but easy to read if you view it from an angle. The manual and 6 sound cartridges are included.” Link
“Sequential Circuits Prophet VS, works fine and has some amazing sounds, HIGH D key has a crack and needs to be replaced.” Link
“Zum Verkauf steht ein Sequential Circuits Prophet VS in sehr gutem, gebrauchten Zustand.
Das Netzteil und die Speicherbatterie wurden überholt. Diverse Taster wurden vom Vorbesitzer mal getauscht, voll funktionsfähig.” Link
Cosmetic condition is fair. I would rate a 7 out of 10. Some paint chipping and scratches along the corners and edges.
Light surface scratches throughout the metal casing and along the keys. I added a few close up pics of the areas I felt needed highlighting.
Functional wise, all pots, buttons and slider function as normal. Pitch and Mod Wheel are normal. Waveform joystick is normal.
All keys function as normal with the exception of aftertouch(it was brought to my attention that the loss of aftertouch is a known issue with this model)
It should also be noted that the screen backlight is no longer working(also a known issue with most vintage synths) However, the text is still visible.
I added a close-up picture of the screen while powered on.” Link

“Verkaufe seltenen Racksynthesizer Prophet VS. Der Synthi befindet sich im guten Zustand und blieb seit dem ich ihn gekauft habe im rauchfreien Raum. Der Käufer erhält auch eine Card mit dazu.” Link
Er wurde vor einigen Jahren bei Virtual Music Wien “verbessert”.
Das Gehäuse ist bei den Prophets ab Werk in sich instabil, so dass es sich immer leicht nach innen bog, wenn man auf die Knöpfe drückte.
Diese Schwäche wurde beseitigt, indem Virtual Music von innen eine Verstärkung anbrachte, die die Steifigkeit verbesserte. Der Prophet fühlt sich seither sehr viel wertiger an.
Das Ersetzen des leicht summenden internen Netzteils würde laut Fachmann über 100 Euro kosten. Das war es mir nicht wert, zumal das leise Summen in keiner Weise auf dem Signal zu hören ist, sondern ausschließlich äußerlich- alle Prophet VS haben das, zumindest bei 220 Volt. Die Tastatur kann keinen Aftertouch. Das beruht auf einem Konstruktionsfehler von Sequential.
Es ist mir kein Gerät bekannt, bei dem Aftertouch je funktioniert hat.
Natürlich lässt sich über Midi die Aftertouchfunktion nutzen.” Link
“in very nice shape and 100% working with rom card and original manual.” Link
“Functions perfectly. Has some minor dings at the back. Please see photos.” Link
“For sale is a Sequential Circuits Prophet VS synthesizer. This synthesizer is in okay shape (see pics) with some corner shipping, but the face is still good. I put a new slider from Wine country as well as the latest ROMs. This synths works perfectly with the exception of the after touch. Pretty much all Prophet VS’s after touch doesnt work due to it’s stupid design…even if you see one that does work now, it will eventually stop working with use, really a terrible design. With that being said, the rest of the VS’s design is simply awesome, a wonderful wavetable synth with analog filters that still cant be matched by any synth available!” Link
“Up for auction is my Sequential Circuits Prophet VS rack mount vector synthesizer. The unit is in excellent cosmetic and working condition. It has had a new backlight installed so the display is very clear. It comes complete with original user manual and power cord. There is plenty of information online about the VS. The rack version is not as common and is known to be more reliable than the keyboard version. I have two rack mount VS synthesizers and they have never gone wrong. It is time to let one of them go though!” Link
“mit Analogfilter 24 db. -Nichtraucher Heimgerät, alles okay, alle Parameter funktionieren,Supersounds drin, Dispalybeleuchtung+Aftertouchet okay ,gebraucht aber schön.Er macht sowohl fette Analogsounds als auch abgefahrenste Digital-Analogsounds ala Tangerine Dream . Er macht auch PPG Sounds. Er hat 132 Wellen drin und 32 austauschbare. Super-Arpeggiator, Chorus, Split, Double, Unisono,Vector, SYSEXMIDI. Nie auszureitzen ewig. Er macht sogar Zufallsound per Knopfdruck. Ein UNICUM.” Link
