Sequential Circuits Prophet VS for sale.
This Prophet VS has been meticulously serviced and is working perfectly.
Tech notes: Cleaned unit inside and out. Cleaned all pots and key contacts. Replaced display with a much better one that can easily be seen in the dark. Replaced data slide pot. Replaced all tact switches. Replaced battery. Reloaded patches. Adjusted aftertouch sensors. Replaced power supply capacitors as a preventative measure. (6800uF 16V x2 1000uF 35V x2, Tantalum Caps 2.2uF 35V x4, 1uF 35V x1). Performed multiple burn in tests. Verified that all functions are working properly.
The work we did to this unit should make it better than others you may find. It will be packed to withstand typical rough handling and should make its next owner very happy. We'd keep it if we could, and we just might if it doesn't sell soon.
This unit's been sold but we have another we're just about done refurbishing - please email if interested.
The Prophet VS is well-loved by many for its beautiful evolving digital tones. It contains many interesting digital synth waveforms and allows the user to crossfade between 4 of them at a time using the built in joystick. You can get some terrific sounds out of the VS which you can't get out of any other vintage synth. From the classic late 80s digital synthpop sounds to crazy modern glitchy ones. The VS has a really useful feature that automatically generates random patches. This model combines unique digital oscillators with warm analog filters and a massive unison mode. Great for ambient or new age music, smooth jazz, techno, synthpop and you name it. We like it best for pads, strings, strange morphings sounds and sharp bass.
Famous users include Erasure, Nine Inch Nails (NIN), Brian Eno, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, John Carpenter and many others.
