I like the Arturia ProphetV more cause it works. Haha just kidding! Actually it is one of my fav plugs as, IMO, Arturia did a great job in getting it to sound the most like a real Prophet. Getting back to the real Prophet, I don't have a Prophet 5 but have always wanted one. I do own a Prophet 600 that I had overhauled last year. It cost me almost $300 for the work I had done and worth every penny. My Nordlead2 has a bank where all the original Prophet 5sounds are recreated, it's permenantly embeded in it's memory. How is that for tribute?

Anyone who publishes a picture of my darling prophet with its top off will be in breach of privacy laws - and sued.

double topical pun

talking of Prophet I was pretty impressed by this Nord Lead vs Prophet example...

Green Box: Clavia, Nordlead - Vintage Synths - AMAZONA.de

amazona do really excellent reviews...

I guess you're talking about the Analog Prophet? I appreciate that, but sorry, I love my wife.

Funny this thread came up,

Sadly recently my gran passed away and left me some money in her will (Β£1000) I was going to use it to clear all of my debts but my Mum said I should get something to remember her by! So, I think I'm going to get a prophet 08! I currently have a Voyager, Slim Phatty, and Virus Polar TI2, so I'm thinking this might be a good idea.

Only think I'm worried about is whether it's necessary considering I have the Virus, obviously they are different beasts, and I'm sure you'll all say that the prophet is larger sounding, more organic insert cliche here etc. But the virus can sound pretty big and I'm just thinking if there maybe something else that would better it.

After this synth purchase I'm pretty much going to end it. I don't really want any more analogue synths, as I feel I've got quite a lot of bases covered with my current set up. My next investment in some time is going to be building my own modular euro rack. Can't wait for that.

Anyway, would be pleased to hear what you all think.

Well, with a grand, I'm assuming you'd be getting a rack not a KB, either way, I think it'll fit right into your current setup.
The more I use mine, the more I think this thing IS destined to be a future classic, so, yeah, I'd say that's a good use of an inheritance.

Sorry for your loss

I have both, obviously they are very different but Id be more than struggling to replicate the prophet in the virus

I also have the slim phatty and a couple of others...i feel those three really cover everything i need, by a long way

Mr Patel,
Where you been on GS, mate? Thanx for the tunes the other day!
Many of us here love Prophets of all types. Me it's the 08. Never seen or played any other. That's fine for now!

sorry I can't participate in this thread, guys.

I am busy today.

I gotta burn an Embassy or two: somebody posted this video on youtube,

which pretends my prophet is to be used for [gender slur removed here] trance music!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=senhvxSN3PU

and I feel very oppressed, insulted, colonized and whatever...

I LOVE that video! Especially the first few minutes. I'm not at all a trance guy either.
Shows the P08 can do almost any style of music very well.

This is another way of putting it, yes...

"The prophet is so good, you can EVEN play trance with it, and you will still sound almost human nonetheless".
