The Prophet-5 is an analog synthesizer that was designed and manufactured by Sequential Circuits between 1978 and 1984. With five voices of polyphony, the Prophet-5 is one of the first polyphonic analog synthesizers with patch memory. About 6,000 units were produced in three revisions by Dave Smith and John Bowen. This was later accompanied by the Prophet-10, a version with ten voices of polyphony through an additional circuit board and keyboard. The Prophet-5 is known for its use by progressive rock bands and film composers. Due to its success, the Prophet-5 has been emulated in software synthesizers and analog hardware. Through his company Dave Smith Instruments, and later under the Sequential Circuits brand, Smith has developed updated versions of the Prophet-5.


Sequential Prophet X

Blimey. Well at the very least can you divulge whatever other information is provided? Google is turning up precisely zero; well, aside from some Prophet 5 t-shirts available in size XL :lol:

Moog One

...staging relative to polyphonic synths. It will not sound as good as a monophonic synth for bass just like the Prophet 5 in my view does not sound as good as a Pro One for bass despite having the exact same voice architecture. I am no expert technician but that is just my experience...

Elektron Analog Four MIDI question

I love the sound of it. I've owned (or my brother owned and I used them on a daily basis) many many classic analogs over the years (Jupiter 4 & 8, Prophet 5, JX3P, Junos, various Moogs) and the A4 did not disappoint me in the sound department.
