Cheers for that, very enjoyable.  Great timeline of the versions and how they lead up to the DSI synths.  Lot's of revelations (for me) regarding the Prophet's use in iconic music over the years.  I recently saw a "how the Doctor Who theme was made" video (the late 80's theme) which showcased the Prophet 5.  I was unaware of it being used in that version until then and suddenly all made sense why it sounded so clear relative to the previous versions.  Though one thing I have to wonder is which came first, the Prophet 600 or the Voyetra-8?  It's splitting hairs and when it comes down to it and the Voyetra-8 used XLR connectors for it's MIDI ports, so didn't adhere to the spec to the letter, but still.....;)
