Sequential Circuits Prophet VS for sale. We love these because there's nothing else like them but hate them because we often notice weird glitches in them that end up costing us a fortune to correct - these are very complicated machines that even the most experienced synth techs find challenging to work on.
This Prophet VS has been fully refurbished and is working perfectly. It was disassembled and cleaned inside and out. A couple minor repairs were performed. The aftertouch has been tested and is working well. We want our items to hopefully continue to work well long into the future, so we paid our tech to do some preventative work in an effort to future-proof this VS. All tact switches were replaced with new ones and work flawlessly, as they seldom do these days. Although the original display was working well, we replaced it with a much better and way brighter brand new one that can easily be seen in the dark. The battery still held the onboard memory, but we replaced it anyway so its next owner shouldn't have to worry about it dying anytime soon. We also reloaded the factory patches. The power capacitors have been replaced, which is something we normally do with synths of this age. This VS is better than most other VS's you'll find and is being sold by perfectionists. One thing we should mention for those as critical as we are is that the data slider wobbles ever so slightly when moved, but there's nothing wrong with it - is in fine working order. This VS should make its next owner very happy. It's a real pleasure to play!
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.
