Sequential Circuits Prophet T8 SN 000341

via this auction

"The Sequential Circuits Prophet T8 was released in 1983 when analog synthesizers were largely outnumbered by digital FM machines. The T8 is a monstrous sounding 8 Voice polyphonic synth with analog circuity under digital control allowing the user patch storage and a 670 note on board sequencer. The T8 also featured 76 weighted keys with velocity and aftertouch that could be routed to various destinations which was very uncommon at this time. This synth is very similar to its predecessor the legendary Prophet 5 in its sound and is often thought of as Sequential Circuits' pinnacle synthesizer.

Prophet T8 is an 8-voice analog synthesizer with digital microprocessor control. This model hasn’t lost its relevance even now, as it has all the necessary features:

Full MIDI support
Dynamic keyboard with aftertouch
The ability of keyboard split and layer
Sequencer for 670 notes
128 patches to save settings"
