There were two major releases of the Prophet-5=2C one with Curtis chips and
later one with SSM chips. The Curtis had rather wild temperature senstivity=
=20
and so was replaced. Anybody who has used both found the newer models=20
to sound a lot thinner and some would prefer the sensitivity/unreliability =
of=20
the former to get the sound quality.

The MiniMoog is a bit more esoteric=2C they did not used anybodies chipsets
but mostly discrete components. Legend has it they the board layout was
changed at some point and even though the design was the same those in=20
the know did not appreciate the new sound.

I am pretty sure the Oberheim went through the same issues as SC. The
big Rolands are a separate issue - I think they used there own chipsets but
I could be a bit wide of the mark.

Kind regards=2C nick.
