In an interview w/ Sound On Sound, Rob Swire of Knife Party [formerly Pendulum] states this about his Sequential Circuits Prophet 10: "We did record bass guitar," says Rob, "and it's used as a layer like the guitars on some tracks, because it adds a subharmonic that gets lost otherwise." Nevertheless, most of the leads and basses on the album are, as you might expect, synthesized, and although the studio boasts a mint-condition Prophet 10 and several other desirable analogue synths, Rob has some other favourite sound sources that are more unusual.more
In this article, Wakeman was asked 'of the synths you no longer own, which one do you miss the most?' and he responds with the following: "Of synths I no longer own, the answer would probably be the [Sequential Circuits] Prophet-10, with the double-manual keyboard. It was initially misconstrued as just a dual-manual Prophet-5, but this wasn’t the case. It was a different instrument in its own right. I wish I still had mine."more
"My studio was called Pi West, and the initial bank of keyboards there when John and I started out working together were the Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev3, a Prophet 10, an early ARP Quadra and two ARP Avatars — one Avatar was integrated with a Sequential Circuits Model 700 programmer — an ARP Sequencer, an Oberheim Four Voice, and an Emulator 1 sampler. I also had the Linn LM1 drum machine, which drove our main arpeggiator, the ARP Sequencer, using clock pulses."more
