Sequential Circuits Prophet 2002

“Zum Verkauf steht ein Sequential Circuits SCI Prophet 2002 Racksampler.

Der Sampler funktioniert zu 100% bis auf den rückseitigen MIDI OUT/THRU Umschalter für die dritte MIDI Buchse. Dieser Schalter ist bei dem Prophet 2000/2002 bekannt für einen Defekt. Wer die Umschaltung braucht kann ihn einfach tauschen.
In dem Sampler wurde mal vor Rund 5 Jahren ein Schaltnetzteil eingebaut (der Originaltrafo ist weithin im Gerät). Dies sorgt für deutlich kühleres Klima im Gerät, und erhöht somit die Lebensdauer. Zudem verbrennt man sich an der Rückseite nicht mehr die Finger am Gehäuse.
Das letzte ROM 4.3b ist verbaut – somit kann wunderbar auch mein Editor mit diesem Prophet eingesetzt werden ( ). Das Diskettenlaufwerk wurde mal von meinem Vorbesitzer getauscht – auch dieses funktioniert zuverlässig.
Die Anleitung ist leider abhanden gekommen, aber im Internet findet sich diese als PDF. Kann ich auch gerne auf CD beilegen.
Der Zustand ist recht gut – es gibt ein paar kleinere Schrammen. Eine ‘größere’ ist auf der Beschriftung des Bedienpannels beim Parameter ‘Sound Number’. Für die Funktion allerdings irrelevant.
Der Sound von dem Gerät ist – wie soll ich sagen – dank der analogen Curtis Filter sehr schön. Es geht von Sanft bis Brachial. Als Speicher sind 512kWord verbaut (also mit einer Erweiterung).”

Sequential Circuits Prophet 2002

“I turned it on and ran through some of the switches, buttons and knobs and everything responded affirmatively. You can see in the pictures that different lights are lit/ Plus it goes to 11. The floppy drive seems to work but I have no way of testing it. THere is also a disk that has some files, but as I gave away my MacPlus sometime last millennium, I have no way to see what else is on it. But as far as I can tell, this unit is very clean and is in Mountain View, CA just 10 miles from where the Sequential Circuits products were manufactured. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Sequential Circuits Prophet 2002 Plus

“Sequential Circuits Prophet 2002 Plus Digital Sampler Synthesizer Rackmount version of Prophet 2000. Has analog filters. 12 bit resolution in an age of 8 bit, this thing was Ace in it’s day and still a strong tool for sound design.
Sequential Prophet 2002 Plus is with the upgraded memory and individual voice outputs. Including a printed and bound manual, IEC power cord. No wall wart or bulky brick!

Used condition is:
Minor scratches and rash and slight bit of paint splatter on one side, also missing one knob on the balance control but all of this was purchased this way. All functions work with only one particular quirk: the switch on the back that provides midi thru/out select wore down and broke off but has been adapted with jumpers accessible by opening the unit. Disk drive is great and have successfully formatted disks to ensure all is working well.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Good shape, everything works, some physical wear is evident. There is some rust around the holes for the rack screws and a few minor scrapes in the finish. There is also some residue on the bottom, where there may have been rubber feet? The pictures give a good indication.

I just today tested loading and playing sounds, as well as all the buttons and knobs. All controls and lights are functional. The disk drive has been replaced years ago, and it does work. The new drive is smaller than the original, so there is a gap between the drive and the control surface of the sampler. This is shown in the pictures. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Prophet 2002+ sampler (upgraded from baseline 2002 model). Cosmetically it’s seen better days. Function is perfect. The + version has 8 outs and twice the RAM. HxC floppy Emulator installed. I will include external USB floppy drive and a stack of floppies from original owner. I should also have original floppy drive but message me if that’s a deal breaker. ”

Sequential Circuits Prophet 2002

“It is in nearly great condition as you can see from the photos. Comes with two original disks, a handful of custom disks of my own, and digital copies of dozens of disk images. This particular sampler has had the 512K memory upgrade installed. There is a software editor available online.

Schematic and service manuals are available as PDFs, however this unit is in perfect working order – checked it out yesterday.

I believe this sampler is a hidden gem, sounds just as good if not better compared with EMU Emulator II. Feature and sound-wise one of the best designed samplers and sound quality. It also has a very nice MIDI arpeggiator that is unique. Leave it to Dave Smith for the ingenuity of this beast.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Sequential Circuits Prophet 2002

“This is like a hybrid digital/analog sampler, because it has 8 analog curtis filters. So you can load analog synth waveform samples into it, and with the filters you have a very analog sound. There are separate envelopes for VCA and VCF, and an LFO with lots of stuff that you can use it for, as well as a pretty cool arpeggiator. 12 bit sound but it’s like a fairly high quality 12 bit sound. So the sound is actually kind of unique just on the digital side.

The disk drive does work! Included are several disks, with a nice variety of sounds on them. I remember having trouble with getting at least one of them to load properly but most of them do load. 10 are new disks I bought and copied some other disks I had onto them, but 3 of those new disks are BLANK, so you already have all you need to start sampling your own sounds! i imagine you might find a few of the disks with things on them to be not to your tastes and you could use those for your own sounds as well. i’m going to list what is written on the labels of the disks, which sometimes tells you a good idea of what’s on it, and other times is kinda vague. One of these is an official disk from sequential themselves (the first on the list):
Sequential Sound Disk Model 875-03 revB – includes- Acoustic Guitar, Organ, Electric Bass, Slap bass, and various layer setups with combinations of those

these are all on older disks of various brands:
a disk that says ‘Tu Ritmo disk 4’ not really sure what that one is, one that simply says ‘strings disk’, one that says ‘marcato strings’, one that says ‘fairlight’, one that says ‘pan pipes & recorders’, one that says ‘string effects’, one that says ‘606 stuff’ (drums from 606), one that says ‘flute’, one that says ‘fairlight and 5 DX7s’, one that says either ‘aut disc’ or ‘ant disc’ (no idea about that one), one that says ‘bazouki’, one that says ‘bass, organi, harpsichord’, one that says ‘oberheim four-voice drums, etc, 1987’

these are disks i copied myself onto new blanks:
a copy of a prophet sound disk with- grand piano, muted bass, wah piano, honky tonk, and lots of other variations
a copy of a wine country wurlitzer electric sample disk
copy of a wine country moog disk
disk with an accordian
one with a cello
one with acoustic drums+bass
one with strings and brass
and again there are the 3 blank ones” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Sequential Circuits Prophet 2002

” Sequential Circuits Prophet 2002 is a classic digital analogue hybrid synthesiser / sound sampler. The synth case condition is reasonably good except for a few of minor scratches and scuffs. It is in full working order, all buttons and knobs work, all inputs and outputs work, the disk drive works. All eight voice channels work, the sampling system works. I bought this synth from Mark Kelly, the keyboard player in the band Marillion in 1988 it has only had light, studio use. The synth was completely overhauled not long after I bought it.

The synth was upgraded by Mark to the SCI 2002+ standard with the full 512k (12bit) memory expansion and double sided disk drive. It dates from late 1986. The firmware has been updated to the final revision release. It comes complete with the owner’s manual and a cd copy of the circuit diagrams from the service manual. There is a library of sounds on disk that includes the usual standards (Choir and Strings, Piano and Bass etc..) but also some great Moog and PPG samples..” Click here to visit listing on eBay
