Even better than paired keyboards for the stereo effect, Paul Dither has informed me that Sequential will issue module versions of these instruments.  Go ahead, try to imagine the magnificent sound of a Prophet 10 Keyboard MIDI-ed with a Prophet 10 Module.  I'm swooning at the thought.

Except the technology has caught up at this point. Two Prophet 5s does not make a Prophet 10. Especially in its various voice modes.

I said two Prophet 10s.

I know ;) Still bummed about the P10. I think it would have been the one time to do the dual keyboard version. I understand people might not care that much but it just feels like a missed opportunity. Even when people visit the Sequential office almost everyone gravitates towards that P10.

I agree.  As much as a few of us might find place for such a gigantic two-manual synthesizer, it would remain an esoteric instrument.  In spite of the present analog/old school revival, it might be too much of a good thing, and a potentially expensive misstep for such a small company.

Eh....you still wouldn’t be able to do the Prophet 10’s engine cycle...where each engine plays every other note. So essentially you are playing a different patch with each note.

Even if it was a limited edition. Like if they said “we are going to do 100 of these at $10K”. I seriously would put a down payment on that right away in addition to possibly purchasing a P5.

It certainly makes one consider another option: rather than having your money spread over many instruments and devices, putting it all instead into one massive synthesizer.  Mmmm....

I'd be very interested to hear an audio comparison between the Prophet-6 and the new Prophet-5/10, with each of them exerting their old school analog best.

Have they indicated the P5/P10 will not be poly-chainable?

It wouldn’t work that way though. Unless the modules are completely different and feature modes like “engine cycle” and perhaps the modules actually feature a poly sequencer built in. I’d be all over that. That’s really the only way I could justify the P10.

I think the better question is, how long till the inevitable purists start claiming the original P5 sounds so much better than the new P5? I'm sure some are already at it in the comment section of Youtube...  ;)

Well now I’m in a real quandary. I have a prophet 6, and a prophet 600. I love them both. Can I justify a new prophet 5?

Those are three fairly similar instruments.  I would think there would be far too much overlap to have all three.

I think you are correct. If I could poly chain the prophet 5 and 6 I’d be all in but doesn’t sound like it will be built for that. And I’m certainly not overburdened with money so may need to be one I admire from afar haha

Remember they can hear the difference between surface mount and through-hole.

I'm waiting for the claims that the modern CEM 3340 and 3320 sound inferior to the originals because they aren't built using the same semiconductor fab process node. :o

As much as the Prophet 5/10 appeal to me, I think if I was looking at getting a new analogue synth then the Polybrute would probably be best for me. Hopefully I won't buy another one though because, like others, I have no space at all for any more!
