Sequential Circuits Prophet 5
From the Michael Lehmann Boddicker Collection
The Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 is one of the most iconic synths from the late 70's. It is one of the first fully programmable polyphonic analog synths and the Prophet 5 was the sound of the eighties! It is a very capable synth that had a unique analog sound The Prophet 5 had 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 Prophet 5 has on-board patch memory which scanned and memorized every knob setting for storing and recalling your sounds. This was a huge step forward at that time!
The Prophet 5 is still loved today for its great string sounds, analog effects, and super punchy analog bass sounds.
This is a Rev 2 model using the SSM chips, and has some differences in its control logic capabilities from the final version. This Rev 2 model is considered by most to be the better-sounding of the two 'common' P5s.
