Enough users are listed[edit]

The users section is now longer than any other section in the article. I believe that we have more than enough users of the Prophet 5 listed. Please refrain from adding any more and instead concentrate on adding information on the synth itself. --Mperry 20:27, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Amen to that. Probably trim it down to half the size, only mentioning *memorable* uses - "Betty Davis Eyes" and "Take On Me" say more about what a Prophet-5 is than a dozen "Group foo used one". And if we trim that section, we can justify losing the reference to Kevin Barnes - the "Of Montreal" was bizarre enough that I didn't fix it, having no idea what the author intended.Valdis (talk) 01:00, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
Well I agree that it's not very useful to list everyone who bought such a machine. But I'd like to see some examples of songs where the sound of the Prophet-5 can be distinctly heard. 99 Luftballons comes to mind[1] (Although at the Oberheim OB-8 page someone claims that one of those may have been used on the album...) --BjKa (talk) 22:28, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
