What prophet 08 is best?

Do I get the PE or rotary? Are some versions serial numbers better?

Get the PE edition. This was a revision made because people were having problems with the encoders. I guess it solved the problem.

If you're in southern california or don't mind paying shipping and want the rack mount, I have one for sell -

^^ you have to delete the space between craigslist. and org ^^


Can I please be given permission to access the classifide section?

It says I have to be added by a mod and so far no one has been willing to give me permission

I have a minibrute, xoxbox, and prophet 08 I would love to list, but can't....

Encoders are cool, you don't have to deal with jarring transitions when tweaking sounds on a saved patch.

I had the encoder version before it was revised (pretty sure it was revised with the better encoders used in the PE version)

definitely not worth it, feels cheap and you need to treat the encoders often so definitely make sure that you get one with newer encoders if you really need them

I personally never cared for encoders, you really don't need them unless you're rely on presets
