I know its been a while, but I feel I have to comment on the contribution made by Mr. Glen Stegner a while back. First of all, knowledge of who produced what and when doesn't make your comment more valid than others: the Korg Z1 is generic plasticy sounding crap compared to the very distinctive Prophet VS. This Prophet houses the lushest and most flexible chorus ever to be implemented on a synthesizer, adding to an outstanding filtersection, and great programmability. There's no competition.

As for the comparison to the Wavestation, they're both classics. However, the latter is all digital and is now to be found as a plug-in - made by Korg themselves - which is highly effective as far as its ability to recreate the character of the original goes. If ever they'll be able to remodel all of the old classic polys, the VS will be the hardest of all considering the strange components this Prophet is composed of. Most reviewers here agree - this synth is in a league of its own. Testifying to its various 'faults', etc, is ludicrous; it produces a sound that cannot be found anywhere else in Gods created universe. While the OBXa and Elka Synthex needs mentioning, the prophet VS reigns supreme next to the Roland J8/MKS-80 as the all time best poly.

A fanastic synth. Great sounds and very odd in most ways. A very creative instrument. A very creatively thought out and designed instrument as well. It is true that they are surprisingly difficult to sell on for what they are worth. why don't all synths have a random edit feature?

I'm real lucky. Got one right here in front of me. Sure looks and sounds great. The display is dimming though I hear you can get replacements. I'm using a shareware editor. I had trouble getting it to work but things are going fine now. The sounds are crazy mad and the filters are lovely and rich. The arpeggiator is sooo easy to use and is great fun. I got into electronic music whilst on an educational program at a juvenile correction unit. Now I'm free I would like to make music my career. Beats stealing cars. I've got this VS and a Yamaha Cs 01( cv and gate modded in England) plus a Roland drum machine and a quadraverb effects unit. All pc linked and run off cubase. It's a good set up to make clean hip hop sounds.

A great synth. Cannot understand problems with OS. It's not complicated or glitchy. Why problems? It seems to be coming down in price. Not analogue enough for some. Still the best US synth of all time. Can be difficult synth to sell at the right money. People want these cheap. You'll sell 10 prophet 5s in the time it takes to sell 1 of these.

what in the name of god is this : I will give it top marks as it is a US synth and I am from the US. The prophet VS is a classic. Digital so what it has his own sound and that`s why we love it.
