Prophet T8 - Sequential Circuits Vintage Synth

via this auction

"Tunes up, and all of the keys work great, including the velocity/aftertouch. Everything else works perfectly but it is old, so it is being sold as is, no returns. You can come test it out yourself.

Physically it is a bit worn looking The wood side panel has a large chip on the corner as you can see in the photos. and the silk screening has rubbed off in some places along with some paint on the back.

Also, two of the original knobs were missing, so I replaced them with similar looking knobs. One of the original knobs is also missing it's silver cap, so it's just pure black.

This is the most expressive keyboard ever! The aftertouch is poly-aftertouch, so each key has individual modulation instead of channel aftertouch like most other keyboards where it affects all voices the same at once. Sounds soooooo good! For a vintage synth you'll only find this kind of feature in the CS-80 or Rhodes Chroma to my knowledge. Works as a great controller for other synths. The aftertouch has the perfect sensitivity."
