Yeah, I know it's NOT analogue, but it's so interesting, so powerfull (I get
mine 1 week ago), that you should check it quickly.
Here are the exact spec. :

KORG PROPHECY spec.
Multi-Oscillator Synthesis System (vitual synthesis)
====================================================

For all settings you can copy from an existing patch or initialize
from a list of standard values : very useful !
(exemple : for EG you can select between standard EG for piano, bell,
guitar, percussion, organ, softattack, solostring, sweep, pressure etc...)
All envelopes are 4 points.


Sound generator system :
======================

2 x OSC - 7 types (standard, comb, vpm, cross/sync/ring, brass, reed, pluck)
        - 32"/16"/8"/4" with Pitch envelope generator

        types spec.:
        - standard : saw, pulse - with edge definition
        - comb : saw, square, tri
        - vpm : sin, saw, tri, square
        - cross/ring/sync : input : OSC1, feedback, noise
                            carrier : sin, saw, square
                            with modulator edge
        - brass : trumpet1, trumpet2, trombone, horn
                  with lips and bell control
        - reed : SopranoSax, AltoSax1, AltoSax2, TenorSax1, TenorSax2,
                 BaritoneSax, Flute, SingleReed, DoubleReed, Recorder,
                 Bottle, GlassBottle, Monster
        - pluck : with own lpf/hpf/bpf noise filter, own attack curve,
                  string loss, inharmonicity, decay and release, with
                  keyboard tracking

1 x SUB - sin, saw, square, tri
        - range : -24 to +24 semi-tone based on OSC1 or OSC2

1 x NOISE - white


Sound transformer system :
========================

2 x Wave shape control with feedback and cross loop control

1 x Mixer with 2 x output : for OSC1, OSC2, SUB, NOISE and feedback as input

2 x Filters : multimode : lpf/hpf/bpf/brf or thru
              routing : serial1, serial2 or parralel
                        (mixer output1 and output2 as input)
              cutoff & resonance with modulation and keyboard tracking
              swaping option to swap settings of filter1 with filter2

2 x Amplifier : filter1 and filter2 as input
                with own envelope generators for level/time/tracking/velocity

7 x Effects : distortion, wah, chorus/flanger (0 to 100ms),
              delay (12 to 1200ms),
              reverb (hall/room/plate/delayrev/stage/earlytref - 2 to 200ms),
              dual peaking EQ, panpot/output level

4 x Envelope generator : multi-purpose, with level/time/tracking/velocity

4 x L.F.O. : multi-purpose, 30 waveforms, keysync
             and offset/delay/fade-in control


Controllers system :
==================

11 x keyscale (2 users) for a 37-keys solo keyboard (2 x octave up/down)

3 x wheel (2 with middle-stop point, 1 with hold button)

1 x ribbon (x-y move control + z-pressure control)

1 x footswitch

1 x patch-swap pedal

5 x knobs, with 4 x knob config (selectable) = 20 x realtime controler over
    255 assignable parameters.

8 x velocity curve

8 x aftertouch curve

110 x mod sources : EG1 to EG4, Pitch EG, Amp EG, LFO1 to LFO4, Portamento
                    Note Nbr, Velocity, PitchBender, AfterTouch,
                    Control Change 0 to 95

- reverb/delay bypass
- user scale
- internal clock to midi out
- midi clock in for arpegiator triggerin'
- midi dump


Arpegiator system :
=================

5 x system patterns : UP, DOWN, ALT1, ALT2, RANDOM
5 x user patterns   : 24 steps max. with velocity, gate and timing
                      4 types : AsPlayed, AsPlayed(Fill), RunningUp,
                                UP&DOWN

- midi sync
- 4 octaves max.
- step base
- keyboard scan up & down (scan limit)
- sort on/off
- auto-play (lock)


Various infos :
=============

- Memory : 64 rom programs, 64 user programs
  (unfortunately the user programs are better than the rom programs)
- Midi IN/OUT/THRU
- Stereo Audio Out, Mini-Headphones
- 2 lines of 40 chars liquid-crystal screen
- 5.7kg
- 10W
- Contains : power cable, basic manual, parameters manual
- Price : about 1900.- Swiss francs.
