Just came back to see if this thread had slipped further down in the rankings.  I was very surprised to see they released the board, and am also very happy.  I will be buying this upgrade in the very near future. This is great news.  Ever since I sold my P5 Rev 2 back in the 90's that was faulty, I had wanted another P5 and that is what I got with the Rev 4.  It was a tough decision to forgo the extra voices, but we get to have the best of both worlds now.  Thanks so much Sequential.

Same here. No update and my order still shows as ‘processing’. Funny, cos my credit card seems to consider it ‘processed’ 😂

I emailed Support for an update. Got a nice passive-aggressive reply LOL. Expected to ship this week but if I don’t like it I “can always cancel” my order.

I just get my expansion card. It works as it should do but Sequential team you could supply a sticker for the front panel at least to update to Prophet 10 !!!!

Just ordered the voice expansion to my Prophet 5. I am happy with 5 voices as I don’t use a synth as a piano. But the new stack/split function with OS2 is something I like.

What I think you'll also enjoy, that I use WAY more often than stack/split is the poly-unison.  It's an instant transformation of whatever patch you're on, making it sound twice as rich (as long as you don't go past detune level 2).  I honestly don't know why it's not discussed more, it was not only the primary feature that made the Jupiter-8 so popular, it also more accurately represents the Prophet5 as it sounded in many vintage tracks, since many of those recordings consisted of multi-tracked and detuned P5 patches.

Received the voice expansion card today. I’m not that talented under the hood but it was pretty easy to install, toke not more than 15-20 minutes or so - main time by carefully using the screwdriver. Of course a little bit scary but it turned out good. Happy I did the upgrade as the new voice modes makes the P5 richer.

Installed my voice expansion today. easy installation. tuning is a tad wonky voice to voice but I am sure that will correct as calibration continues over the weekend.

I can’t recall there were the same 3 multi connectors that connected the cards at the top at the voice board as at the main board. And it might be to high stack with cards. So I doubt it is possible… but who knows what the future will bring to the rev4 as Dave Smith still is around and kicking.

The desktop module can be expanded with the voice card, right?
Are they only available directly from Seuqnetial, or do some retailers carry the cards?

Yes, the expansion board is the same for the keyboard and module versions of the P5. The expansion kit is only sold directly through the Sequential webstore and is not available through any dealers.

Sorry if I might be asking the same question as someone else. Couldn't find any information from Sequential.

I have heard that there can be very expensive custom fees if you order the expansion card to Europe directly from Sequential. Any chance the "Prophet 5 to 10" expansion card will go on sale through a retailer in Europe soon?

Well, everything imported to EU gets custom fees, retailer or private, no mercy ....
So in the end you pay the "fees" in the store wether you like it or not ......    :-\

…but distributors have in most cases better condition when it comes to customs clearance fees and that would make the price slightly better than importing on your own. Some logistic companies in some countries really f… a private person with their prices/fees.

That’s why I always recommend get the P10. Way less hassle then getting the voiceboard later and much cheaper in the end
