Sequential Circuits Remote Prophet

“If you’ve found this auction, you’re likely aware of this keyboard. You also know how rare it is!

This is a Prophet-5 remote keyboard designed for hook-up to your Prophet-5. It is a “dumb” terminal – there are no patches stored in it. Please be aware that you must have a Prophet-5 in order for this keyboard to produce sound!

I hooked this up to my Prophet-5 (Rev 3.2) and here is what happened:

1. It works! The patch and bank select buttons illuminate and I could change sounds (sometimes the buttons required more than one punch, though.)

2. The pitch bend and mod wheels worked, but I couldn’t make the “aux” wheel work. I don’t know what it’s for, and I might have been doing it wrong.

3. I can play the sounds of my Prophet-5 and the remote at the same time. So, for whatever reason, the Prophet-5 doesn’t go silent when the remote is connected. Oh, what I could have done had I had four arms! 🙂

4. The Remote’s keys are very clicky-clacky. If you want to use this regularly, you’ll need to have the bushings (little rubber parts inside the keys) replaced. You might be able to do this yourself, and I think the parts are available at Wine Country Sequential. I tested every key and they all work, but some more reluctantly than others. Don’t be surprised if you hear “chattering” from some of the keys when you depress them.

It comes with the original umbilical cord, which is in good shape.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Sequential Circuits Prophet Remote

remote “Remote Keyboard by Sequential Circuits for use with Prophet 5 synthesizer. Not a whole lot of these around. This one has been modified… the original owner preferred full sized mod wheels instead of the original mini ones “on a stick” so made that replacement. Also a cool custom paint job as you can see in pics.

This worked perfectly when I got it with my Prophet 5 – after messing with it a little I put it away in studio storage closet so it has not been used in several years. I have no reason to think it has any issues but have no way to test it (sold the synth), therefore selling ‘as-is’. It’s possible the key contacts need cleaned as they tend to oxidize on Prophets when not used, not sure that’s even an issue though. Key action is great and all are level.

Comes with the original cable. The original owner installed an external ground to avoid the issues reputedly caused by the original design and thus never had any problem. Also has original box though that is showing it’s age. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
