Sequential have just announced they are re-issuing the Prophet 5 in the 21st Century - in the same form as the original programmable poly synth, but with updated processing, plus the addition of velocity and aftertouch - using a quality semi-weighted Fatar keybed. It’s “the best of all Prophet-5s” as Dave puts it because it embodies all three revisions of the legendary synth — Rev1, Rev2, and Rev3 — through the use of genuine Curtis analog VCOs and filters (as in the Rev3) as well as new 2140 low-pass filters designed by Dave Rossum, like the 2040 filters he designed in the original Rev1 and Rev2. $3,500.00 to $7,480.00 - apply Price filter. Sequential Circuits’ later product, the dual-manual, bi-timbral Prophet-10, was a different instrument in both concept and execution. [3] Unlike its nearest competitor, the Yamaha CS-80, the Prophet-5 had patch memory, allowing users to store sounds rather than having to reprogram them manually. [2], The Prophet-5 was equipped with a proprietary serial interface that allowed the user to play using the Prophet Remote, a sling-style keytar controller, but the interface cannot connect the Prophet-5 to other devices.

The Return of a Legend The new Prophet-5 is Dave Smith’s timely return to the analog poly synth that changed the world. The oscillators can be played in sync, or in "Poly-Mod", with oscillator B and the filter ADSR envelope modulating the frequency, pulse width, and filter of oscillator A. And I think even SCI knew it was pretty bland as well - it only seems to have ran once. The purity of the new Prophet’s sound is matched only by its simplicity to program. [11] However, the SSM oscillators rendered the instruments unstable and prone to detuning over time. With two oscillators for each of its five voices, a white noise generator, analog filters, LFO and envelope, this … Third-party MIDI interfaces have also been offered. With five voices of polyphony, the Prophet-5 is one of the first polyphonic analog synthesizers with patch memory. Each voice is assigned two VCOs. [10], Early Prophet-5s used voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO), filter and amplifier chips designed by E-mu Systems and manufactured by Solid State Music (SSM). Introduced at the Winter NAMM show in January 1978, the Prophet-5 was groundbreaking in that it was one of the first analog synthesizers to implement patch memory, a feature which stored user settings of every parameter on the synthesizer into internal memory.
