Prophet-5 Review – Synapse magazine, May/June 1978
The primary advantage of this instrument is that, for me, it sounds good. In several months of sessions and performance, the instrument has never failed to get a positive response in regard to its sound …
The second primary advantage with the Prophet is that it has been beautifully designed to be logical and fast for performance of most electronic music needs … A third advantage with the Prophet is that it is a synthesizer––not a hybrid organ … There will definitely be a great many new entrants into the polyphonic synthesizer market in the near future. The Prophet is setting the way. At a retail price of just under $4000 it will hold its own for some time.
