Sci t8 after reading other comment regarding p5 and t8 having both I like to say the t8 is certainly bigger sounding and smoother than the rev 3.3 p5 I own the touch sens. also make it the most expresive of any of the prophet range,being able to prog.modulation ,rather than relying on wheel possition leaves the p5 floundering as does the quality of the keyboard which surpasses any I have owned inc cs80 ,chroma

I bought a T8 brand new back in 1986. It was at a music store near DC that has an annual "clearing sale day". The T8 had some minor shipping damage but also had some serious problems with the sensors and some other tech troubles. It had to be shipped back to the factory for repairs...all covered by SCI. I love this keyboard!Excellent warm analog strings, gread screaming leads...nice keyboard all in all

I own a rev2 P5 and a T8. There is a hugh difference. The comments about the T8 being like the 600 are consistent because they share the same VCF/VCA Curtis IC. Also, for those wanting a bit more punch, drive and drive it with a filtered MIDI velocity stream of Note ON 128. There is quite a bit of punch left of the table due to the velocity curves.

Just to clarify a remark made in the below review: the Prophet 600 does have a Poly-Mod section on it (and it's quite nice). I know this is the T-8 section but I just want the record straight on the P-600.

I love my T8 a professional user from da states writes:
The T8 has one of the warmest, richest, smoothest analog sound available in a synth. For string and pad sounds, you can't beat it. It is smoother sounding (and more reliable in tuning) than a Prophet 5 (especially rev 1 & 2) and offers a hell of a lot more than a Prophet 600. In a sense, there is no Prophet that sounds like the T8 because of the way in which it was designed for performance. The polyphonic velocity AND aftertouch sensitivity gives each note a distinct sound, and played together as a chord, you get a LOT of variability overall. Plus, I don't believe the 600 offers the Poly-Mod section, which the T8 does offer. The performance aspect- the real wooden weighted key action, the polyphonic aftertouch (!!most keyboard synths even today do not offer this), and generally the overall feel you get when playing this beast is what sets it apart from the rest of the Prophet pack. Regarding the reliablity issue: I've owned my T8 for eight years now and have only had to have it serviced once. Prophets are fairly reliable (more so than a PPG) and a lot of the circuitry you can replace today. The only parts you WILL need are things like the actual key hammers, switches, knobs, etc.....
