"This is a one off custom Prophet 5 converted into a desktop format.
The keyboard and case were removed, and a new walnut case was custom made. As can be seen the leds were swapped out for blue , which (subjectively) is rather fetching. At this time the other important service was undertaken to prevent the well known failures of the prophet 5, rebuild PSU etc . A lot of care and attention went into this conversion. There would be no point in going to the effort here without overhauling the electronics.

The inside is a stock prophet 5 rev3 complete with 120 programs and factory midi, however factory midi has been disconnected and Kenton midi in installed (there wasn’t much value in installing thru/out since there is no keyboard , but it would be possible to connect these if you wanted to.)

the knob on the rear controls the amount of pitchbend received over midi"
