Ya mon, rock solid if you're smart enough to wait for the right one and not just take the first one you find. All my Prophets, Minis and Memorymoogs are rock solid. Sorry, maybe NEXT time you'll figure it out before you buy.

The dope below has such bad spelling that it's hard to dicipher what he's babbling about. The rev 3 sounds great, and is reliable; the 1-2 revs are a little better sounding but it's margin and not worth the bother. Good marketing by the rev 1-2 owners claiming that it sounds better ensures better resale prices-great!

I usually go a little further with my 3.3 ,and wait about 20 minutes, cause well old ocillators(reguardless of make,or model) need to warm up ,and of coarse the tuning which is truely rock solid after waiting 20,I have done the ten minute test before ,and at least for me that is not long enough!!!

To say that rev3 sounds better, is so totaly wrong I was luckey to speak with Dave Smith,the man behind the Prophet, he would have enjoyed reading that the rev3 sounds better, man the rev2 sounds so good, i belive that reputation from the prophet is not build on a chip,but on chip, filters,vco,and alot more. Its truley a wonderful synth it can sound so deep, thin, intresting, it can do it all. Simpley the best synt ever made ,with the Yamaha cs80 beside.

Rock solid??? Are you joking. Most are in tune for a minute or so. What about the mini moog?? The rev 1 and 2 prophet will drift constantly. The curtis chip sets held better than most. A 10 min warm up on the prophet helps stuff to settle down. Some weird out if you start to programme before that.

10 minute warmups are a given in the analog realm as a whole, especially earlier synths; nothing to do with the P-5 in particular. 10 minutes later, most are rock solid.
