The Sequential Circuits Prophet VS is a digital synthesiser used by Prince on the Sign O The Times album. Prince acquired the keyboard in the summer of 1986, and it became one of the main keyboards on the Sign O The Times album.
It can be heard on "Play In The Sunshine", "If I Was Your Girlfriend", "U Got The Look" (Filmmusic patch
) and "Adore" from Sign O The Times, and "Bob George" and "Rockhard In A Funky Place".
Wendy and Lisa are also reported to have played a VS on their version of Strange Relationship, although this was recorded before the Prophet VS was released.
Dr Fink played a Prophet VS on the Sign O The Times, Lovesexy and Nude tours. It was later used by Tommy Barbarella for recreating the analogue synthesiser sounds from the earlier records.
