# Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 2

Prophet 5, Sequential Circuits @ 03 August 2017

“For sale is one Rev. 2 Prophet 5 synth. This unit has been professionally maintained by techs in the Bay Area, and is in great condition. It has the analog.fi firmware update professionally installed. More information on that upgrade can be found here: http://www.analog.fi/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=11&Itemid=9 Among other things, this upgrade improves the tuning and allows for a greater degree of usability on the front panel of the synth. Included is the original OS chip, in case you would like to revert to the stock OS at some point.

It had a full keyboard assembly rebushing done a year ago, as well as a PSU upgrade (see external heat sink in photos), which allows for a more stable and cool operating temperature. At that time, the eletrolytic caps were changed, and all voices were tested and calibrated.

This unit has been taken very nice care of, and would make a beautiful addition to any studio or collection. Here is what VSE has to say about the legendary P5:

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 is 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 lacked MIDI (a feature that came later on the P5 spin-off, the Prophet 600). But it is still loved even today for its great string sounds, analog effects, and punchy analog basses.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
