I'm an analogue synthesizer addict. Don't get me wrong, there are digital synths wich I really do like, but I definately prefer the analogue ones. I'm always on the look-out for the rare beasts out there and when I bump into a -so to speak- monsterdeal, I always check the web for technical info and user reviews. I also did when my eyes crossed the words "Prophet VS for sale". In an almost forgotten memory-location somewhere in my brain a fact was hidden that this was not an analogue synth. But fortunately it still drew my attention. So I read al the articles I possibly could find on this synth and couldn't believe the readings. All the reviews were amazing. I really couln't find anybody complaining about this synth, apart from the broken aftertouch stories. My conclusion to all the articles: "The synth has digital waveforms and has to be programmed through a digital interface, but it still has the well-known analogue Sequential filters! And that's what it makes so interesting." So I bought the thing, hooked it up, and pushed the first note. Now I must say that I owned a Wavestation and got bored of it, mainly because the lack of resonance. It sounds rather dull. But the Prophet VS really popped out the speakers in a way I could allmost dry my hair in front of it! I give in, I was warned by all the reviewers, but I still didn't expect it would happen this way. What great power, what a warmth in the strings and above all: what a unique identity.

This machine is as interesting (or maybe even a bit more interesting) as my Prophet-10, I think that's enough said...

The Prophet VS is as industrial as the Ford Motor Company. Within a year I should have one because after the SE-1 it's my next BIG purchase.

One of the things I like about the VS is that, after owning one for a few years, it becomes "your" synth as you would have customized tons of waveforms and mixes to your tastes. I like the idea of a synth that grows with you and is different from anyone else's.

Totally unique!

Quite an incredible machine. I have the keyboard version. Also, I have 300 sounds for this synth that I have programmed myself. Ranging from dance, techno to ambient textures, they are available on PC/Atari disk at £37 including p+p. Buy now!!!

THE best sounding SCI machine!, out powers and out warms the overrated Prophet 10 by a mile. the racks go for far too much though the keyboards can be a bargain. don`t bother with the overpriced limited unreliable FIVE. get a VS.

I picked up a second hand VS last week, and yes folks, this is one awesome machine ! I didn't expect it to sound so fat! I bought it because I love the PPG sound, and I already have the Microwave XT, which is fantastic. But I' ve wanted a VS for 10 years. Beautiful sounds !
