Sequential Circuits Prophet 2000 Project Machine

“Here we have my Sequential Circuits Prophet 2000 which is sadly not in the greatest of health. I’ve owned it for over 10 years, done some gigs, lots of recording she’s served me well. A few months ago I powered it up after not using it for a while and the display showed no power. Flicked it off and back on again and it powered up but no sound. Every other function works. You can select and load sounds, arp works and will control other synths over midi keyboard likewise. With the volume cranked you can hear a click that should be the sound . The filter will even have effect on this click. It has the gotek floppy emulator which has always worked perfectly and has been in it a good 5 years which I retro fitted fairly neatly. It also comes with an original manual which is a binder type and is massively useful and as a bonus was signed by the man who wrote all the sequential manuals Stanley Jungleib. I also have a sound library of about 200 discs on memory card and about 20 odd floppy’s. I’ll be very sad to see it go but I just don’t have the time or resources to fix it and am in need of something functional to replace it with. Remember this is for repair or parts.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Sequential Circuits Prophet 2000

“Hello and thanks for reading this listing for my truly beautiful 1985 Sequential Circuits Prophet 2000 sampler. I really do think this one of the best 12-bit samplers of the era due to the flexible multi-timbrality, build quality and that fantastic rich Curtis resonant filter (as used in many a classic analogue synthesizer, as I am sure you know).

This Prophet is near as damn it in PERFECT condition. Barely a mark on it. I have recently serviced it, and cleaned every key contact ensuring every velocity-sensitive key works and also does so over midi, controlling other modules as required.

The fantastic futurist membrane-buttoned panel works perfectly with every button and LED working as it should. What a great design it is. No crackles from the balance or volume potentiometers. When cleaning the unit I did take note of how easy it is to gain access – 6 screws and the lid flips up, and another 2 release the whole keyboard bed for straightforward cleaning. It’s even signed by a Sequential Circuits engineer inside the case.

Not only is it in amazing condition but this particular 2000 has a library of about 40 disks loaded onto SD Drive which is fitted into the drive bay. This frankly makes the unit far more usable and you can add more to your hearts content. Oberheims, DX7 presets, Hammond samples, Emu library sounds, Synclavier and Fairlight library sounds, even complete EMU SP12 and TR808 kits spread across multi-samples….they are all on here at your fingertips in their 12-bit glory. Truly amazing what you can do with only 256kb of RAM. You can still buy a 512kb upgrade online, but this one is as it came out of the factory and this is just how I like it. If you want to start using the sampler to double up each sample and work in stereo I would suggest investigating that upgrade – Personally I have always used it in mono mode which to my mind gives it the true sound for which it is famous. In either case you have options to expand should you wish.

Did I mention the fantastic sound of this sampler enough already? Pop it through a reverb and away you go…instant Faltermeyer, Jan Hammer, Art of Noise etc. It’s a really, really rich and evocative sound. With a half-decent sequencer and a little planning you could produce a whole track with this item.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Collection only.
Prophet 2000 sampler. Beautiful condition, all working and has had the disc drive replaced with a SD card reader and has loads and loads of sounds on the SD card.
Lovely bit of kit that I no longer use. I bought this for a sampling project about a year ago where I needed the 12 bit sound and I payed over £550 for it on ebay (it is a beautiful example of this sampler). I have used this sampler only a handful of times and I no longer need it.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

Sequential Circuits Prophet 2000

“For sale by original owner, purchased 1986, serial #02241. Exterior condition: excellent; never left my studio – but diskette drive needs replaced (“Lh” locked head error msg, will not read disks). (There have been replacement drives on the market – also USB-based floppy emulators from companies like HxC and N-Drive that specifically support the Prophet 2000, but I have no experience with those.)

61-key velocity-sensitive keyboard (no aftertouch)
12-bit sampling at 42K, 32K, or 16K
512K sample memory (two banks of 256K)
8-voice polyphony
Great-sounding analog VCFs (with resonance) and VCAs
Samples can be mapped into 8 layers across keyboard
Loads samples via internal 3.5” diskette drive (or MIDI Sample Dump Standard, SDS, if you can find appropriate software)
Built-in arpeggiator
MIDI In/Out/Thru

Original footpedal & approximately 100 sample diskettes (3.5”) included. (Can’t guarantee that 100% of them will read, given their age and because I can’t load them with its current floppy drive – however, approximately 35 backup copies—smaller boxes in the photo—are also included.)

Spring for pitch-bend was replaced.

No original manual, but PDF copies are easily available online.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Collection only.
Reluctant sale of my prophet 2000, but I hardly get chance to use it so it has to go to someone who will. Comes with SD card reader which was professionally installed. The card reader makes saving and loading 100% reliable instead of having to use unreliable floppy disks. Comes with a large collection of sounds on the sd card. Loads of 808’s, linn drums, pads, keys, guitars etc.

This prophet 2000 is in beautiful cosmetic condition and works perfectly and has a great sound.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Classic 80s synthesizer!! looks and sounds great!!!all bottons and functions work! 4 minor flaws.1.the midi switch from thru to out is stuck..not a huge problem. 2. one key has a chip on the bottom as you can see in the picture. 3 tiny scuff above sample bottons.last but not least, the floppy drive only wants to work on some discs. factory synth filters sound amazing, and warm!! a lot of variation to each sound. this is an as is sale! no returns!! this machine us from 1985, please understand there is no returns. thank you, happy bidding..ps I would not be letting this go if I didn’t already have the prophet plus.happy bidding good luck! ” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“I recently acquired this from the original owner. I was able to load disks and the samples seem to work fine. All keys seem to be working as well. I was able to use the Arpegiator and Filters. Since I’m not an expert in the keyboard I’m not sure if it’s exactly 100% functional. Sold As-Is. Some of the included disks didn’t load but a lot of them did.” Click here to search for synths on eBay
