Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 SN 3839 Revision 3.3 MINT - Restored with TAUNTEK MOD


via this auction

This is the one in the video posted here.

"THIS IS ONE OF THE FINEST PROPHET 5s YOU WILL EVER FIND.

Aside from being a 9.8 out of 10 cosmetically, it is a 10 out of 10 functionally.

WATCH OUR YOUTUBE VIDEO TO HEAR THE CUSTOM SOUNDS AND SEE THE TAUNTEK MOD IN ACTION!

Here's what we did:

Disassembled and properly burnished the buss bars.
Carefully burnished all J-wires for a solid electrical contact with buss bars.
Coated buss bar and J-wires with conditioner to preserve for many years to come.
Leveled keyboard and cleaned all keys properly.
Replaced all key bushings with new, lubricated ones.
Cleaned the inside of the chassis of any debris and dust.
Cleaned and lubricated all pots and switches. All work perfectly, no noise.
Replaced lithium battery that backs up internal memory.
Replaced a faulty transistor on CPU board.
Carefully lubricated and treated all connectors.
Reseated all chips securely.
Recapped power supply.
Upgraded power supply to latest SCI spec.
Calibrated all functions that needed to be brought back to factory spec.
Carefully calibrated Poly Mod section, so all oscillators sweep the same.
Upgraded firmware with the Tauntek Mod - adding significant new features.
All knobs were removed and cleaned.
Cleaned the case, front panel and polished the wood to perfection.
Front badges were replaced with NOS authentic badges from Wine Country (EXPENSIVE). Still have plastic on them.
This also has the quietest transformer of any Prophet. NO BUZZ!

This has been refurbished by synthesizer guru and sound designer, Steve Donato...along with some assistance from Greg Granieri at Audio Rehab in Burbank. It will come with a 60 day warranty. We will not sell it "as is" like many others do. We stand behind our work.

*BONUS: we will not ship this with the original factory patches. Why? Because they are outdated and lame. Instead, Steve will upload some of his best programming work for the Prophet 5 from his own personal libraries. You will get 120 KILLER programs, including screaming leads; phat basses; phat, lush warm pads; evolving textures; EDM sweeps, EDM swirls, EDM swishes and rises; big power synths; pulsing electro leads; classic prophet sounds from the 80s, and very cool sound effects and electronic textures.

BANK 1 PROPHET 5 SHOWCASE

11-18 POWER SYNTHS
21-28 SYNTH BASS
31-38 MOTION SYNTHS
41-48 MONO STACKED LEADS
51-58 PHAT PADS & TEXTURES

BANK 2 Sound Effects & Design

BANK 3 Analog Drum Construction

11-18 Analog style kicks
21-28 Analog style snares
31-38 Analog hats. toms and perc.
41-48 EDM drops and sweeps
51-58 EDM rises, and falls

All programs designed to make full use of MOD wheel. MOD wheel brings most programs to full potential.

TAUNTEK MODDED! (will come with instructions)

1) MIDI settings Omni/Poly and MIDI channel are now stored in NVRAM and are saved when power is off.

2) Program change enable/disable setting is now stored in NVRAM and is saved when power is off.

3) There's a "MIDI program dump receive disable" feature to reduce the chances of having your patches erased by MIDI input buffer overload.

4) MIDI single program dump is now properly terminated with the 0xF7 "End of Sysex" byte.

5) There's a "Dump all 120 programs using MIDI sysex" feature.

6) Voice tuning progress is displayed on the program LEDs, and if an oscillator fails to tune, its pattern is flashed when tuning ends.

7) Voice activity display can be enabled to show which voices are being used, using the program LEDs. This setting is non-volatile.

8) Variable Unison de-tune can be enabled, in which case the Osc B Fine pot controls the amount of detune and Osc B Fine is set to 0. This is only active in Unison mode. Unison de-tune amount is stored with the program, since it uses the Osc B Fine setting. This feature can be disabled if you only want Osc B Fine in all cases, and that setting is non-volatile.

9) A new Uni1 mode has been added. Press Unison switch once for normal 5-voice Unison mode, and again for Uni1 mode. In this mode, the Unison LED flashes. A separate (global) NV setting selects between one or two voices for Uni1 mode. Uni1 mode setting is stored with the program.

10) A new "latch/hold mode" has been added. Notes will sound after their keys are released in this mode.

11) The transpose feature (which was in the code before, but only accessible using the external sequencer) is now accessible. MIDI and local keyboard notes are affected.

12) Several HW tests have been added, which may be useful when servicing the synthesizer. These are accessed using an internal jumper.

a) Scratchpad and NV RAM tests
b) LEDs test
c) DAC tests"
