IMO, everytime I see the full version and all that walnut I feel a tinge of regret. Though, I really appreciate the space savings and I like to program music moreso than playing keys, so that kinda works for me. Also my wallet likes me more.

No denying the full keyboard version is deja vu classic, but the last thing I really need is another keyboard.

I’m going to say with the desktop modules the magic is there in tone and in spirit. The keyboard version is a bit like sitting down in front of a nice piano. It’s classy and yields old familiar tones.

But I’m going to be brutally honest here, it’s a limited synth by today’s standards. The Prophet 6 is more versatile and if I was working with a budget or limited space where I was looking at a P5 rev 4 desktop module I wouldn’t hesitate to get a P6 desktop version with the P6 now sporting the vintage control.

If you’re looking for more voices it would be a tough call between the two, but the P10 obviously edges out ahead in that race.

The keyboard versions I feel satisfy a geeky lust that I just can’t explain.They look the biz, they sound the biz. Some modern improvements. I mean what’s there not to like? Well maybe the price tag... I do feel they will retain their value and I can’t say that about a lot of synths. I also believe if they do a limited run (which is likely) and based on the Moog Model D reissue they could increase in value? All speculation though.

They make an excellent controller for other models too. My $.02
