“Up for auction is a Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 – Rev 3.2 Analog Synthesizer, Original Model 1000 from San Jose, CA .
It is in great cosmetic shape, except for one or two scuffs on the backside of the synth and works 100%. It was last serviced approximately Ten years ago here in Los Angeles. The synth does need a new servicing, as there are a few scratchy pots when turning certain knobs as well as the occasion key, hence the lower starting bid price. I hate to get rid of this beauty of a Synth, but times have forced me to sell my favorite Synth sadly.
One of the first fully programmable polyphonic analog synths, the Prophet 5 is the most classic synthesizer of the eighties! It is capable of a delightful analog sound unique to Sequential’s Prophet series in which the P5 was King! Five voice polyphony – two oscillators per voice and a white noise generator. The analog filters, envelope and LFO all sound great and are extremely flexible. The P5 had patch memory storage as well, which scanned and memorized every knob setting for storing and recalling your sounds – a desperately needed feature at the time! If you know the power of this synth, then you know how amazing the sounds that can be made on this beauty.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
