i have bought my vs in 1986 as new. got a bad one (serial# 11) and cause my dealer in germany was not able to get serviceparts for that brandnew prophet, i did get a new one. and from that days, it do its work until now, exeptionally aftertouch (does anybody have one with working aftertouch?). it came out 1year after dx7 but was quite more expensive. i paid 5450dm thats about 2450$. and for that, the vs was not only the best thing sequential made, it was definitively the device, that killed sequential! the aera of the dinosaurs (pro5/10, OBX, CS80, PPG2.3)has just been gone and they came out with one. if i was asked by other musicians in that days, witch intrument i use. they pull their faces for such a "boring" instrument. and it tooks until the early 90s to earn a "o.k.", when i list my divices and mention the vs. and about since 1996 i hear an "ohh" and "aaahh".

today its the most whanted instrument in my setup. but sci is dead for a long time, cause they have had a lousy marketing. korg and yamahas where much better (it seems a bit like win/apple to me). they where alltime worth its price, but to few people would buy.

im glad to be one of them!

A wonderful machine which will retain your interest forever. The filtering is great as is the modulation. The sounds are unique...and you can easily spot them, especially on t.v and film soundtracks. The random edit feature is such an intelligent and cool idea. I have created sounds of quality by pushing two switches which would take me at least an hour of thought and tweeking to nearly replicate....and the result would not be as good. A great, classic synth which will always be in demand. The prophet 5 is not as nearly as good and lacks half of its features. The only concern that I have is the aftertouch. It has died on me. So if anyone can tell me how to get it working again I would be most grateful.

I bought one in 1993 from a guy in the city. Turns out its a prototype, has everything the production model has, just a little more point to point and the PC boards are a little different... I kinda think of it as the stratocaster of the synth world! Could have been the only competion to the PPG. The one thing I personally love about it (aside frome the sounds and easy programing) is its got that great metal chassis.. The final words... Built like a tank... Digital vectoring... Great anolog filtering... SSI was ahead of there time!

Probably the best vector synth (unless you include the Wave), but very underated as an additive synth box.

A Pad specialist, I haven't found a lead voice I like as much as others out of it. Nice design and interface. Greatly aided by Wine Country Sequential's continuing support.

i've previously owned a korg wavestation ex, and yamaha tg33, and this is by far the best vector synthesizer.. well worth the extra money you'll pay, if you can find a good one. plenty modulation possibilities along with vector synthesis == instant supersonic funky space sounds, just a tip to get random patches hold down enter and program select button 2 at the same time and you'll get all sorts of strangeness. also very beautiful strings and pads like none other.. and best of all easier to program than any other vector synth. at least SCI left us with this fine machine before they went under...
