The Prophet V is a beatiful and very important musical instrument. If you want to own an analogue synth then this is the one to have. Your friends will envy you beyond belief and every analogue sound you have ever yearned for will be at your disposal. When people come into your studio, the first thing they admire/talk about will be the Prophet. In the tedious old music business, that is a pricless moment, belive me!

I love the way the thing goes out of tune when my beer fridge turns itself on. You've got to love it. It looks very cool and sounds very powerful. My 3.2 has 2 useless bus outs on the back but has had a midi refit. You feel very proud of it and it has a high wow factor when people come round. One problem is the screen printing which rubs off. They're all like it. You know what you're doing more or less straight away so it's not a problem really. Bits can be expensive, though mine is really quite reliable. Loads of spares available on the net, though people will aim for Winecounty for ease. Buy a good one and always check one out before you buy. Ebay crap is everywhere. And it is crap! Dealers can be cheaper in the short and long run. Don't pay a premium for revs 3.2 and 3.3. The 120 progs isn't that much of a big deal because it has a tape back up which works.The digital bus is pointless. 40 progs is enough, especially as they do dump the lot if the enable switch is left on. A power surge can cause the memory to clear. Very annoying and regular. You will love this synth if you buy one. Many have kept there's for 20 plus years. Tell's you something.

Mine dumps the programs even though it has had a new battery fitted. If you switch to record disable on the back of the unit it can cure the problem I understand, though we shall see. Besides that its great for everything. The filter sweeps are amazing and the poly-mods rocks!

I've got dramatic tuning instablity on my rev II which I think is normal. Besides that it sounds great. My minimoog is worse at keeping tune I suppose. Thr proph is a nice bit of furniture and a piece of musical history. I like watching 80s music on video and the proph is plyed on many a track. It is satisfying to play and is very warm. I wish my playing ability could match its potential.
